There were moments during the 350 kilometre five day downwinder that it was just nice to sit on the beach with my kite off to the side, where I left it to bob up and down gently on the sand at the edge of the window while my legs rested. The sudden stillness and remote surroundings consumed me as we waited for the riders in our pack to re-group.I had signed up for a downwind experience in Brazil with Surfin Sem Fim and we were heading north, from Barra Grande to Atins; much further north than I had ever been. We were kiting 65 kilometres per day from pousada to pousada and this was the most invigorating kitesurfing experience I’ve ever had.The hustle of the journey wasn’t always complete…

WKC JOINS THE GKA There’s yet more acronym-related news coming your way this year from the world of pro freestyle. The World Kiteboarding Championships (WKC) has come under the umbrella of the GKA as part of the GKA Kite World Tour in 2019. This new tour will see the leading ‘expression’ disciplines of twin-tip Freestyle kiteboarding and Kite-Surf (wave riding / strapless freestyle) combine.The idea is to have one unified body for world tours, to clean up and simplify the image for both those inside and outside the sport of kiteboarding. Instead of following two separate tours, twin-tip freestyle riders will now compete in the GKA Freestyle World Cup events, while wave and strapless freestyle competitors will continue to compete at GKA Kite-Surf World Cup events. Both…

Thijs enjoying the benefits of freedom on Aruba! Drag & drop ease of use Tell us about the Viking Booking system. Every instructor has their own account on the system and they enter their availability. The student books and pays online and then chooses their availability according to the currently available lesson slots. If group lessons are already booked, then it’ll show if there is space left in the group and won’t let the instructor be booked for a private lesson. The system administrator then gets the schedule where they can see weights, age, experience and a track record for instructors. The planner can click on certain students and ‘approve’ them and assign an instructor certain groups in terms of sports, abilities or locations…

GKA KITE-SURF WORLD TOUR AIRTON COZZOLINO Airton Cozzolino underlined how deadly a force of nature he is by taking his second GKA Kite-Surf World Title, winning five out of the season’s seven events. He took on all comers during a busy season in which riders had to display a solid level in both waves and strapless freestyle to even get near the podium. Airton came into 2018 aiming for a perfect season and, while he had to make do with one second place finish to Matchu Lopes in Portugal and third place at the final round in Australia, he certainly came close!Close to unbeatable in strapless freestyle and a top class wave rider, Airton may have started out on the little Cape Verdean island of…
