Freestylers get ready for the 2018 World Kiteboarding Championships

The world’s best professional freestyle kiteboarders are about to kick off a new season.

The first event of the year marks the end of an era. The World Kiteboarding League (WKL) is no longer the official tour of freestyle. It has been replaced by a brand created by the Kiteboard Riders Association (KRU).
