The next event on the 2011 PKRA World Tour will be the "2011 Fuerteventura World Cup", which will be celebrating 10 years of PKRA kiteboarding world cup history.
Over the last 10 years Rene Egli and his team, have been pioneering kiteboarding competitions and as a result have developed an extremely successful event in Sotavento, Fuerteventura. This location is well known by the pro’s as one of the most challenging events of the year due to its extremely strong winds.
Fuerteventura becomes the next event on the calendar due to the cancelations of both Cabarete and Essaouira events who continue to suffer setbacks due to the global economic crisis. We believe and look forward to the events returning to the tour schedule next year.
As a possible replacements for these event cancelations, the PKRA is in discussions with Venezuela and Argentina. These two events would probably be added during October and November later this year. A final update will be announced by July 31st.
