Sotovento Beach, Fuerteventura will host the Professional kiteboarding Grand Slam

Sotovento Beach, Fuerteventura will host the Professional kiteboarding Grand Slam competition
for the eighth year in a row, the Professional Kiteboard Riders Association (PKRA) – the world’s leading professional kiteboarding organization – is bringing the events back to the popular Canarian Island.

The event dubbed “Fuerteventura PKRA Kiteboarding Grand Slam 2009,” will be a five-day event of extreme kiteboarding action. The highlights will include Freestyle and Kite-Loop Competition to be participated in by professional riders from more than 18 different countries.
Organized by Pro Center René Egli through its owner René Egli, featuring €33,000 in total prize money, the Fuerteventura event is well-known as the most extreme PKRA Kiteboarding World Tour event be cause of guaranteed strong winds.

The games will start on July 17, 2009 with the Inscription & the Welcome Party and will run until July 22. Expect to see some of the best freestyle kiteboarders live in action performing their biggest jumps and difficult tricks, pushing themselves in the extreme conditions. In addition to the freestyle this year will feature a kite-loop competition which guarantee spectacular extremely high jumps as the riders get that extra lift created as they loop their kite while in mid-air.

The venue will be Playa Sotavento, without a doubt the best beach in Fuerteventura and perhaps the Canaries. The area abounds with sunny weather condition and strong winds blowing at an average of 18 to 35 knots, these, conditionsombined with an average water temperature of 22 degrees Celsius (71.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and a general wind direction of side offshore to side shore makes the beaches of Sotavento a perfect and spectacular setting for the PKRA Grand Slam event.

Spectators are welcome and encourage to mingle with the competitors.
