IKF and KPWT have entered into a cooperation agreement.

The International Kiteboard Federation (IKF) and the Kiteboard Pro World Tour.

KPWT announced that they have entered a long-term cooperation. All events of the KPWT tour will be sanctioned by the IKF. This is a huge step forward for Kiteboarding and promises to further the sport into a hugely successful future. Both organizations look to govern the sport with a unified system of rules and rankings, which will only benefit the riders and all involved.

IKF president Andrea Siqueira Silva says: "It is exciting for us to work with the KPWT, who started the first world tour back in 1998. We are looking forward to this collaboration and to develop the sport under one umbrella and successful system."”

"I have been working on and building the KPWT since 1998. I have seen the sport grow from year to year and will continue to do my best to take Kiteboarding into the future. This is a great step for the KPWT and I look forward to the 2010 season.", Frederic Gravoille tour promoter of the KPWT stated.

Both KPWT and IKF agree that all future endeavors are to unify the sport under one ranking and rule system and to develop Kiteboarding into a structured, well-governed sport.

Look out over the next few weeks for the ranking systems to be published as well as the schedule for the 2010 World Championship season.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
