The epic battles for the Kite-Surf crown on the Qatar Airways GKA Kite World Tour are about to begin firing on the legendary waves of Cape Verde’s Sal island.

The globe-trotting tour’s 2024 season will likely open hostilities on Ponta Preta’s world-renowned righthand point break, returning for the first round of the Kite-Surf discipline.

The current world champions, Italy’s Airton Cozzolino and the US’s Moona Whyte, are set to journey to the South Atlantic islands for the first of five scheduled stops in the Kite-Surf discipline on four continents.

The 2023 Kite-Surf season marked a return to Cape Verde after a break of two years. It was also the start of a journey that saw both Cozzolino and Whyte regain their world titles after an absence from the podium of several years.

A total of 37 athletes—22 men and 15 women from 16 countries—are ready to battle for honours and glory during the 10-day competition window which will accommodate a double-header with the GWA Wingfoil World Tour.
