Greetings from Valdevaqueros in Tarifa for the first of the GKA's huge double discipline events this season.

The GKA Kite World Cup will see both the Freestyle and Kite-Surf discipline riders compete throughout the week. Over 70 riders (19 nationalities) have registered, so it's a massive week at one of kiteboarding's most important hubs. First order of business today (Tuesday) was registration for the Freestyle riders, which saw the field of 31 men and 10 women confirm their participation.

After a long wait, the thermals are building in the late Andalucian sunshine at 5pm local time. The event livestream has just started and you can find all the official updates, including video and photos of the day, a live ticker with all the important bite size updates and more.

The first double event of the GKA Kite World Tour 2019 season began today (Tuesday) at the Kite World Cup Tarifa, which will see both the Freestyle and Kite-Surf discipline riders compete throughout the week. Over 70 riders have registered, so it’s a massive week at one of kiteboarding’s most important hubs.

First order of business was registration for the Freestyle riders, which saw the field of 31 men and 10 women confirm their participation. Click here to see the Freestyle heavy hitters and new faces at this event.

The event livestream ran for an hour with host Jo Ciastula warming up viewers as the action looked as though it would get imminently underway. As the thermal winds however teased everyone, in the meantime we heard some psychological and training insights from some of the leading contenders for the Freestyle World Titles, including Pippa van Iersel, Stefan Spiessberger, Maxime Chabloz and Rita Arnaus.

Unfortunately day one ended with no action for the Freestyle riders but tomorrow is a new day (still with Poniente wind in the forecast), and the focus will switch to the ever entertaining Kite-Surf world cup riders, with their event registration taking place at 9 - 11am.

More GKA crap, how is it a world cup without any kiwis or aussies? They will kick everyones asses here except for maybe mario who is a little bit good.

Are they still swapping out boards mid heat to do a board off LMFAO!
