2019 GKA Kite World Tour Champions Crowned


The Superkite Brazil 2019 finished on Saturday, bringing the curtain down on another incredible GKA Kite World Tour season that has seen riders compete in Freestyle ( twin-tip) and Kite-Surf (wave & strapless freestyle) disciplines across 13 action packed events.

Mikaili Sol had already done enough to seal her third world Freestyle title before the last event, but on Saturday the 15-year-old managed to overcome Bruna Kajiya, Rita Arnaus and Pippa van Iersel in the ultimate final of the season on home soil. Of course who could forget that just a week earlier she had also won her first Kite-Surf strapless event at the first time of asking in Prea?! A rare talent the Brazilian surely is.

Here’s how the final championship podiums stand at the end of the 2019 season:
