War breaks out between IKA and PKRA

The International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) has published a strong open letter to the PKRA regarding the fragmentation of kiteboarding and its competitions. Here's what IKA has to say: 

Unfortunately the PKRA is the only organizer not willing to cooperate at the moment and trying to bypass national and international interests, so we were forced to publish this open letter to PKRA tour manager Mauricio Toscano:

«Dear Mauricio, we hereby request you to immediately stop all activities that potentially bypass national and international kiteboarding bodies interests and lead to a fragmentation of kiteboarding, like contacting other organizers venues, backdoor talks to ISAF etc.

Our intention is the integration of all kiteboarding activities around the world.

We invite you one more time to start serious negotiations with us, and we will call for a follow-up meeting mid/end of January including national associations, tour operators and ISAF committee members.

We are looking forward to your answer until 23.12.2008, clearly confirming your will to co-operate and to stop any prejudicial activities.

Kind regards,
Markus Schwendtner
Executive Secretary»
