Airstyle World Championship in Germany
Recently approved by the IKA, the PKRA proudly announces the unveiling of a second World Championship discipline – Airstyle – for the event in Germany at the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup in St. Peter Ording.
This exciting new discipline will include old school hooked-in tricks such as board-offs, one-footers, and big airs. These maneuvers, which remain noticeably missing from the standard freestyle competitions, will enjoy a resurgence with the addition of this discipline, allowing riders the chance to compete at the World Championship level.
Overall impression judging will be implemented to determine winners of the Airstyle competition, which will take into account originality and hang time, as well as imagination. Providing judges and onlookers with the biggest and most exciting show possible, the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup will certainly deliver the ultimate venue for the unveiling of this action packed discipline, leaving spectators and even online viewers in awe.
This year will mark the 7th consecutive visit by the PKRA to St. Peter Ording for the world cup event, which promises to attract one of the largest audiences the 2012 PKRA tour has yet seen. In 2011, the event attracted riders from 22 countries, fighting for the world title and a piece of the 52,000 €. This year, this number is likely to increase with the additional discipline and another 52,000 € in prize money.
The next event - the Burn Kiteboard World Tour 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey, will also offer prime conditions with small waves and an average of 15-20 knots of wind. Starting on June 27th and ending on July 1st, this location will provide PKRA riders with a chance to compete on the Marmara Sea and near one of the region’s largest cities. A total prize amount of $22,500 will be offered at this event to winners of the race and freestyle kite-masters events. Major sponsors of this event include Oakley, Virgin Radio, and Burc Beach, among others.
Finally, St. Peter Ording, Germany, is ready and waiting to host the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup 2012 – one of the longest standing and biggest kiteboarding events of the year. Standing out as a favored destination by competitors and spectators alike, this event site becomes a hub of activity once the PKRA arrives, drawing thousands of onlookers and packing the beach with varied entertainment, regardless of the wind readings. Conditions at this event on the North Sea range from 12-18 knots with normally side on-shore winds from the Northwest direction. Choppy water and quickly rising and falling tide also define this site, making it a challenging yet fun spot for riders to compete at the highest level of competition. Past winners of this event include Youri Zoon (NED), Alex Pastor (ESP), and Gisela Pulido (ESP).
