German and Italian kitesurfing federations join the IKA
The German Kitesurf Association (GKA) and the Federazione Kitesurf Italiana (FKI) have become the first national affiliated members to the IKA.
Intention of national affiliated membership is to build a strong base of national associations taking care of the development in their respective countries.
A national associations sub-committee is currently set up to discuss development if international rules etc.
The number of national associations joining the International Kiteboarding Class Association is growing, and all national associations are invited to join in, to get their national events included into the world ranking and to become member of the nation associations sub-committee to give further input for the development of the class.
