Antoine Auriol: the last KPWT champion?

Antoine Auriol is the 2010 KPWT Overall World Champion, in the Freestyle and Wave classes. But it was not an easy year for the Kiteboard Pro World Tour.

After several disputes with PKRA, IKA and ISAF, apparently the KPWT only managed to complete one event: the Santa Cruz Ocean Spirit, in Portugal.

It all started wrong in Jamaica due to poor event organization. The kiteboarding competition could not be concluded.

The KPWT events were delayed, cancelled and only Portugal managed to conclude a stage.

Despite all the problems and pressures from the official kiteboarding governing bodies, the KPWT promises "new sublime kiteboarding locations and a new format competing for the World Tour Title".

This was the 12th year of KPWT competitions. What will happen next? uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website. Learn more on our About section.
