The International Kiteboarding Association launched a tender process earlier this year which invited manufacturers to tender for a new youth foil racing class aimed at boys and girls under the age of 16 years.

The key criteria for this new class are as follows:

- Strict One Design for all components
- Long term commitment of class and builder in order to protect investment of MNAs, clubs and parents
- Equipment readily available on the market, and with good distribution

IKA received eight compliant bids. The following equipment has been shortlisted for Phase 2 of the tender process as being those who closely mirror the specific technical criteria for the new class.

Hull and Foil:
F-One (Stig / IC6)
Moses (T65 / K91-590)
Taaroa (Peak 130 / Joy 90)

Kites:
Cabrinha (AV8)
F-One (Bandit)
Ozone (Edge V10)

Following shortlisting, in Phase 2, IKA will now further evaluate the successful bidders on the basis of professional and technical qualification with the aim to select equipment by August 2020.
