The Virgin Kitesurf World Championships event in Cabarete has been cancelled due to organizational difficulties and therefore will not take place in 2015 at all. These unfortunate circumstances opened the possibility to postpone the event in Venezuela from June 9th till 14th in order to avoid a clash of dates with the Triple S Invitational (a sliders and kickers event taking place in Cape Hatteras, USA).
Venezuela, Isla de Coche (Disciplines: Freestyle & Big Air), then becomes the second stop of the VKWC. This place is renowned as one of the best kite spots in the world for freestyle thanks to its flat water and constant winds. Riders will be able to put on a great show and push the level with their latest tricks.
These are the dates for the upcoming VKWC events 2015:
• Isla de Coche, Venezuela: 09. – 13.06.2015
• Tarifa, Spain: 11. – 19.07.2015
• Fuerteventura, Spain: 02. – 08.08.2015
• St. Peter-Ording, Germany: 21. – 30.08.2015
In addition, from now on the Tour has a new increased VKWC media team. Mallory de la Villemarqué is part of this new media team. Most of you know him from the tour as a judge or professional rider. He has a lot of experience about the sport, competitions, locations and of course he knows all of the riders and most of the kitesurfing media. He is keen on combining his knowledge with the expertise of the media team.
