F.A.Q.Send us your questions via email or facebook, and we will answer them here

Is this the official World Championship ?

Yes, the IKA World Championships (Formula, KiteFoil, TT:R, Freestyle / Big Air / Wave, Speed) are the only official world titles recognized by World Sailing.

World Sailing is the governing body of the sport, from dinghy racing, windsurfing, kiteboarding up to the Volvo Ocean Race and the Americas Cup, and is as such recognized by the International Olympic Committee.

How is the World Champion decided ?

The winner of the World Championships is the world champion - men, women and age divisions upon entry.

The age categories are Under 21, Under 18, Masters (over 35) and Grandmasters (over 45)

Can we as riders also compete in whatever else kiteboarding event around the world ?

YYes, of course. We encourage riders to get involved in as many events as possible and grow our sport of kiteboarding. However, if the event claims to be a World Championship (or is perceived as such) without being sanctioned as such by IKA or World Sailing it may be listed as a prohibited event by World Sailing. Attending these events mean you become ineligible to compete in World Sailing compliant events and the Organising Authority of that World Sailing compliant event may deny your entry. This could apply to certain events published by the so called "IFKO".
