Jeep Tarifa GKA World Tour Double Bill Starts Next Week
The Jeep Tarifa Pro kicks off next week on Tuesday the 26th June and it’s set to be quite a week with a huge double bill - the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour will share the stage with the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour - Air Games! This will be the first time that two major world tours have shared centre stage at an event and the Jeep Tarifa Pro, which regularly sees big crowds lining the beach at Playa Valdevaqueros, will no doubt make it a special one.
Pippa Van Iersel (NL) will be making her debut at the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour in Tarifa. A very all-round rider, check out her video interview here.
This will be the fourth event of the year for the Kite-Surfing World Tour after three super-successful stops so far in Cape Verde, Dakhla and Viana do Castelo in Portugal. The action is hotting up with Keahi de Aboitiz currently pushing hard to unseat Airton Cozzolino who has a narrow lead in the men’s division and Moona Whyte and Jalou Langeree are locked in a tough title race in the women’s.
This will also be the first time the Air Games has seen action after an unfortunate windless first event in Leucate and some big hitters will be in attendance, including former KOTA winners Aaron Hadlow and Jesse Richman. The riders will be judged in three different categories - big air, kiteloops and handlepasses in the hopes of finding the most well-rounded twin-tip riders among a stacked field of competitors.
