The PKRA kicks off its 2011 season with the return of the Hua Hin Kiteboarding World Cup in Thailand. Asia's only Pro Kiteboarding event had an amazing success in 2010 and quoted by pro-riders as one of the best event setups in the history of Kiteboarding. We can expect another amazing event for 2011.

The registration day is Sunday March 13. Monday, March 14 through Saturday, March 19 the top riders in the world will compete in this Grand Slam event, featuring Freestyle, Course Racing, and Board Off disciplines. Last Year this mega-even at Hua Hin, being the first ever professional kiteboarding event in Asia, proved to be one of the best events of the entire world tour and therefore establishing itself as the new standard of kiteboarding competition. This year we can expect nothing less.

Online pre-registration for the event will open up on Monday February 1st at the PKRA website:

ATTENTION LOCAL RIDERS: If you are interested in competing, KBA will be holding a qualifying contest March 10 - 13. The top 2 male and top 1 female finishers will automatically be entered in the main event of the PKRA freestyle competition! (as well as the top 2 male and 1 female from the KTA current ranking) This is your chance to compete with the best in the world!
