About The KSP:
The KSP was launched by a core group of surf-focused riders, driven by passion and vision and established as a grass-roots non-profit association. In December 2010 the KSP applied with the IKA (International Kiteboarding Association) for the world championship title in the kitesurfing discipline and got this title granted in February 2011, making it the IKA sanctioned world championship tour in kitesurfing. The IKA is a class association inside the ISAF (International Sailing Federation) and the overseeing body of kiteboarding.
Kitesurfing has gained a lot of recognition in the past few years from riders pushing the envelop of progressive surfing with kites in renowned high-performance waves all over the planet, but has yet to be consistently and legitimately represented in prime conditions in a professional, competitive realm. Through it's World Championship Tour the KSP aims to provide a professional platform for both established and aspiring kitesurfers to showcase the pinnacle of high-performance kitesurfing in some of the world's best waves, enabling them to set the performance standard for competitive kitesurfing for years to come.
