KSP World Tour: wave kitesurfers are entangled

The Kite Surf Pro (KSP) World Championship Tour has decided to crown its season champions in a one-off competition, to be held Maui, Hawaii, between November 22nd and December 1st, 2013.

The team behind the wave kitesurfing tour has already informed riders, members and partners that the event scheduled to take place in Puerto Rico, in the end of October had to be canceled.

"The organization committee had done everything in their power to try and make an alternate event happen and negotiated with organizers and government bodies in Brazil and Ecuador, which seemed promising at first, but unfortunately did not work out in the end", explain the KSP.

"The KSP will focus all its efforts on making the Hookipa Kite Surf Pro a spectacular event and re-focus to come back better and stronger in 2014".

Wave kitesurfers had set up a crowd-funding plea, in order to run the last two events, but funds raised only reached $4,500 of the $30,000 goal. Hard times ahead for world kiteboarding?

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.
