Kiteboard Riders United in 2017
The KRU (Kiteboard Riders United) would like to announce that it will no longer be a union only for Pro Freestyle Riders, but also for the Junior, and Big Air athletes. After an extremely successful 2016 season, the KRU have decided that they want to take responsibility for the Juniors and Big Air athletes also, together with the support from the GKA and with the sanction from World Sailing. KRU is the co-founder of the World Kiteboarding League, and the Juniors are the future of the WKL. The World Kiteboarding League will be responsable for the 2017 Junior World Championships in Sant Pere Pescador, Spain. The WKL also hold the World Championship rights of the Big Air, of which there will be 4 events run throughout 2017. In order to be able to support the riders to their best capacity, we ask them to join the KRU.
The KRU now has over 90 members, who are not only freestyle riders, and we expect to grow to 150 members during 2017. The strength of the KRU is to be united so that as kiteboarding riders, we have one unified voice.
