El Gouna RRD Center Kiteboarding World Cup 2017
The World Tour returns to Egypt at the beautiful spot of El Gouna, 25 kilometres north of Hurghada. This stunning town that includes lagoons, islands and secluded sandy beaches, combined with a unique blend of traditional and modern arquitecture, is also known as one of the best kiteboarding locations in the World.
The event will be hosted at the new RRD Center, where conditions are optimal for freestyle kiteboarding. Registration took place during the afternoon, and saw 36 men and 15 women register for the Qualifier League event, from over 22 different nationalities. You can expect to see many of the well known riders such as Val Garat and Linus Erdmann come up against some of the new up and coming riders such as Christian Tio or Mikaili Sol.
One thing is for certain - The level will be high from the very start! Our live stream will be running as from Wednesday, but meanwhile, you can follow the action from the Qualifier League via our Facebook and Instagram. The Elite League event will commence on the 8th of November.
