2011 PKRA World Tour Season to kick-off in Thailand

Feb 23, 2011

Author: PKRA

The PKRA World Tour is set to kick off its 2011 season with the return of the Hua Hin Kiteboarding World Cup in Thailand.

Asia's first ever Pro Kiteboarding event had an amazing success in  2010 and quoted by international pro-riders as one of the best event  setups in the history of Kiteboarding. We can expect another remarkable  event this season which will set the mode for this year’s annual pro  tour event lineup making Asia a prestigious part of the PKRA World Tour  circuit.

This mega event will start up on March 10th through March 13th with a  special PKRA Asian freestyle qualifier, high jump as well as long  distance race. The top 2 male and top 2 female freestyle winners will be  given the chance to test themselves against the world’s best as they  will automatically be entered into the main event as wildcards.

The PKRA international crew will be running this qualifier event,  which will ensure the highest quality of event logistics and judging.    Registration for the main event will take place on Sunday, March 13th  whereby Monday, March 14th through Saturday, March 19th will mark the  official kick off of the PKRA World Tour season.  Top riders from around  the world will compete in this Grand Slam event, featuring Freestyle,  Course Racing, and Board Off disciplines.

As an added highlight, an SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) competition has  been added to the list of disciplines beginning every morning at 9:00am  from March 15th-17th, and will have a vast range of prizes for the  winners.

Holding a world-class event in Asia has proven to promote the sport  of kiteboarding and will open opportunities for new talent to take  center stage encouraging Asian riders to partake in the highest level of  kiteboarding in the world.   PKRA Thailand promises to be an event to  be remember, and will set a high standard for professional kiteboarding  competitions in the entire Asian continent.

Don’t forget to register!
