GKA Freestyle Super Grand Slam in Brazil 2020
We have confirmed together with the organizer to run the GKA Freestyle Super Grand Slam in Brazil, Ilha do Guajiru from 17.-21.11.2020.
Due to the fact that it can not be ensured at this moment to fullfill the necessary requirements agreed with World Sailing, the GKA Sports Committee and GKA Riders Committee to run an official GKA World Cup (E.g.: attendance of minimum 75% of the top riders), the event in Brazil will run as a GKA Super Grand Slam with no World Cup status and therefore no World Champion titles will be given in Brazil this year.
The GKA Freestyle Super Grand Slam in Ilha do Guajiru 2020 will have a Special Event status to bring the tour back to life without ranking points towards the World Championship. Nonetheless the competition will have 20.000 Euro prize money and the same media coverage as a 5 Star World Cup event (Live Streaming and International TV distribution) and run under the guidelines of the GKA Kite World Tour Rulebook 2020. We expect high media interest in this event, because of it being the only international GKA Freestyle competition that is taking place this year.
The registration for the GKA Freestyle Super Grand Slam Ilha do Guajiru, Brazil 17.-21.11.2020 is already open through the GKA Kite World Tour website. Here is the direct link to the registration page for the event:
Registration for the event will close on 6.11.2020 at 23:59h (Central European Time)
