They will race according to UKWA Raceboards rules and will be recognized as Open fleet Kona racers. Open fleet race results will not count towards Kona One Design rankings.

There will be prizes for Kona One Design and also Kona Open fleets. In addition to the kudos of earning an international Kona Cup ranking, Surf Sales Ltd are launching the UK Kona Cup and offering a Kona incentive, with generous prize money, in the form of vouchers to be re-deemed at Surf Sales retailers around the UK for the top Kona performers at each event.

Please note that Kona riders who prefer to use alternative rigs should enter to race as ‘Kona Open’ competitors, Kona Open competitors will not qualify for Kona One Design rankings but will qualify for product prizes generously provided once again by Surf-Sales.

For further Kona Cup information please contact the team at Surf-Sales, your local Kona dealer, or the UK Windsurfing Association.
