Kiteboarding - 23. November 2009.

IKF and KPWT have entered into a cooperation agreement



The International Kiteboard Federation (IKF) and the Kiteboard Pro

World Tour (KPWT) announced that they have entered a long-term

cooperation. All events of the KPWT tour will be sanctioned by the

IKF.


This is a huge step forward for Kiteboarding and promises to further

the sport into a hugely successful future.

Both organizations look to govern the sport with a unified system of

rules and rankings, which will only benefit the riders and all

involved.


IKF president Andrea Siqueira Silva says: “It is exciting for us to

work with the KPWT, who started the first world tour back in 1998.

We are looking forward to this collaboration and to develop the

sport under one umbrella and successful system.”


“I have been working on and building the KPWT since 1998. I have

seen the sport grow from year to year and will continue to do my

best to take Kiteboarding into the future. This is a great step for the

KPWT and I look forward to the 2010 season.” Frederic Gravoille

tour promoter of the KPWT stated.


Both KPWT and IKF agree that all future endeavors are to unify the

sport under one ranking and rule system and to develop

Kiteboarding into a structured, well-governed sport.


Look out over the next few weeks for the ranking systems to be

published as well as the schedule for the 2010 World Championship

season.
