We fly at higher game – first Airstyle-World Championship at the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup
IKA gives green light: St. Peter-Ording is the venue of the Airstyle World Championships
(Hamburg 05.06.12). Kitesurf-Fans have a reason to celebrate. Shortly after the integration of this action-packed trend sports in the Olympic program for 2016, there is already another highlight in this summer. The IKA (International Kiteborading Association) decided to hold a Airstyle-World Championship for the first time. The champion will be determined as part of the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup in St. Peter-Ording (06. – 15. July).
With this new spectacular discipline, spectators can look forward to extremely long and high jumps and fancy tricks. Whereas freestyler do quick radical and complicated exercises with high speed and short airtime, the important factors in Airstyle next to the hang time (time, the kiter is in the air) are especially the originality and fantasy. In the discipline Airstyle it is mainly a matter of the overall performance and to present an action-loaded show. It is not unusual that these flying artists get off their boards high up in the sky and use it for their stunning tricks. The single figures and jumps are not presented as fast as in the freestyle discipline. Thus, the fans of Airstyle have more time to watch and admire the style and the artistry of these sky-stormers.
The Beetle Kitesurf World Cup, which takes place for the seventh time this year and already attracted hundreds of thousands to come to the beach in Ording, offers a worthy setting for this spectacular World Championship.
The Beetle Kitesurf World Cup in St. Peter-Ording is with 130.000 spectators the biggest kitesurf event in the world. In the past year 130 participants from 22 nations started on the beach of Ording and fought over a total prize money of 52.000 Euro.
