Because of the current situation of the Pro Kite Tour, the riders decided to take their responsibility to become part of the solution.
The riders are an asset to the tour, to sponsors, and to local organizations. Therefore the riders will participate in the discussion about who will be the tour organizer in 2016 and in the future.
That is why, from today on, these riders will come forward as one in a union, under the name KRU that stands for Kiteboarding Riders United.
Their aim is to protect the interest and belongings of the riders, improving the communication between the brand (GKA), local and tour organization, to make the tour better than it already is and to make sure that riders will get rewarded for their effort.
The current interim members of the board are: Youri Zoon, Annelous Lammerts, Liam Whaley and Alex Pastor.
The board assigned Danny Galiart to negotiate with the different organizations, and to be spokesman to the press. Galiart will put out a tender for organizations like IKA/KWT and others. The organization with the best proposal for the riders will get to organize the tour for the coming years!
