2019 GKA Freestyle World Cup GKA Kite World Tour

The action kicks off at the GKA Leucate

On April 24, 2019   |   By kiteworldmag.com

The wind kept us waiting but the heats are on

It’s time to tune in to the livestream!

 

After four days of waiting, with two days left in the event window, the wind is on today at the Mondial du Vent and the heats are rolling.

The standard format for the 2019 GKA Freestyle World Cup events is thatthere are (usually) four riders in a heat who take it in turns to do one trick. Each rider is allowed six trick attempts in their heat and their four highest scoring tricks from four different trick families count towards their score.

A big screen on the shoreline shows the score for each trick and then shows what the next rider needs to take the lead / win.Each rider will have one minute to do their trick, with a countdown timer showing on the big screen!
