The Professional Kiteboard Riders Association (PKRA) has introduced the Overall 2015 PKRA World Tour Title for the best rider across all disciplines.

Slalom, Freestyle, Big Air and Wave. The 2015 PKRA World Tour calls the best kitesurfers in the world to a redesigned new season. The worldwide circuit will kick off in Dakhla, Morocco, on the 18th March.

Wave kitesurfers will return to the PKRA circus with a full calendar. There will be a qualifying series at every Wave event scheduled during the 2015 season. Twenty-four men and 12 women will be in the initial Dakhla ladder, plus three local wildcards.

The Big Air specialists will also have the opportunity to show how high they can fly. In this division, there will be 24 male riders and 12 female kiteboarders in the ladder to glory.

The Freestyle athletes will have two qualifying events in the 2015 season; one in Dakhla and another one in Tarifa later in the year.

The Moroccan stage will not feature Slalom kiteboarding. The PKRA has also confirmed that the "Overall Title" will have a winner-takes-it-all format.
