KiteFoil GoldCup will crown the 2016 KiteFoil World Champion

18938145393 8ea4c56b62 oThe 2016 IKA KiteFoil GoldCup will again gather the worlds best riders on Hydrofoil Kiteboard, and this year it is all about the World Championship Titles !

The 2016 tour will feature three events in exciting locations: Hang Loose Beach in Gizzeria, Italy has already proven in the 2015 season to be a perfect location for kiteracing. Not only the climate in the south of Italy is hot but also the parties during the annual "Aloha Party Week".

A new country on the world map is Korea - Boryeong offers wide sandy beaches only 2 hours from the Capital, and an unique combination of east Asian lifestyle and fantastic conditions.

The final will be held in The Pearl, Qatar. The location is well known from the 2014 Formula Kite Asian Championships, and this time the accomodation deal will be even better. Riders will be hosted (subsidised accomodation) in the brand new Kempinski 5 Star hotel directly at the race course. Hard to imagine a better place to crown the 2016 World Champions !

The decision to award the 2016 KiteFoil World Championship Titles came after negotiations with the already confirmed and contracted event organizers for the KiteFoil GoldCup. The IKA AGM had earlier this year decided to award the world championship title through an one-off event in the future, subject to contractual negotiations. As contracts for 2016 had already been made under the assumption that the KiteFoil GoldCup would award the World Champion Titles, such agreements had to be respected and cannot be overturned without the approval of the effected parties.

Registration will open shortly for the first event of the 2016 IKA KiteFoil GoldCup in Gizzeria Italy, and the exact dates for the remaining two events will also be confirmed shortly in order to allow all competitors to take part in other important events towards the end of the season, i.e. the Lighthouse 2 Leighton race in Perth, Australia.
