Asia’s first international kiteboard tour goes to Hong Kong

The world’s fastest growing and newest watersports phenomenon is set to come to the shores of high tech Hong Kong at the start of December.

The Kiteboard Tour Asia (KTA) which is staging the second round of its five stop international competition tour in Hong Kong from the 2 – 5 December 09. The event will be based on the beautiful Cheung Sha beach on South Lantau at the new purpose built, Palm Beach watersports centre.

A good local rider turnout is anticipated for the Hong Kong tour stop along with a strong international field from countries across not only Asia but further a field also. Competition will take place between 10am – 5pm each day with competitors displaying their talents in both the freestyle and course racing events – all sanctioned for world ranking points under the IKA and ISAF.

Whilst the KTA tour promises to be a unique sporting spectacle as it travels around the region over the next few months, it also has another target it is determined to fulfil and that is to create new opportunities and chances for local riders, an opportunity not only to compete on an international stage in Asia, but to been seen and recognised by the wider watersports community worldwide. In support of this the KTA has put in place a Riders Grant scheme, details of which can be found on the KTA website.

The KTA Hong Kong is strongly support by its local organiser and sponsors the KHKA, who are one of Hong Kong’s leading kiteboard groups and schools, with the Evason Six Sense Spa as the KTA tour headline sponsor.
