Portuguese Kitesurf Championship 2012
For the 9th consecutive year APKite will lead the Portuguese Kitesurf Championship to the Portuguese beaches in three disciplines: race, freestyle and waves.
This year, five stages mark the national competition in Portugal. The tour will visit 5 beaches from North to South, Viana do Castelo, Aveiro, Lagos, Costa da Caparica and Nazaré. As in previous years, in 2012 APKite maintained its aim to co-organize events with the help of local associations, clubs, schools or individuals.
Ensure continuity of competition in wave discipline was one of the goals of APKite, that in 2010 “revived” the will and motivation to carry out official compettion in this discipline, with the implementation of National Kite Cup, held in Guincho. It is therefore with great satisfaction that in 2012, two organizations reinforce this commitment, allowing the realization of two stages of PKC Wave. Racing (the fastest growing discipline in terms of registrations) will be played in a National Championship with four stages. The discussion of the title in Freestyle is back this year will visit Aveiro, Costa da Caparica and Lagos.
The Champions of 2011 will strive to maintain the leading position in the rankings and is expected great atending by the national riders and the introdution of new faces in the national competitive universe.
