PPKRA Tenerife '11: Wave Event Out, KiteMasters Event In

There are some bad news and some good news to report about the PKRA Tenerife 2011 event. Lets kick things of with the bad news. The bad news is that the Wave World Cup event has been cancelled; the PKRA (Professional Kiteboard Riders Association) cited “reasons beyond the event organizer’s control” for the cancellation.

Moving on, the good news is that the PKRA Tenerife 2011 Wave event has been replaced with a freestyle KiteMasters event which will be open to all riders and will feature the following format: Men’s KiteMasters round robin 12 and Women’s KiteMasters round robin 4; the old school and new school tricks will be rated by two judges. The KiteMasters event will take place at Playa del Medano, Tenerife; it will kick off on the 9th of August and come to an end on the 13th of August.

There’s more good news: the PKRA Tenerife KiteMasters event will have a prize purse of €16,000 (€12,400 for the men and €3,600 for the women). The top 6 men will get a cash prize (€4K for 1st place, €2.8K for 2nd place, €2K for 3rd place) and the top 3 women will get a cash prize as well (€1.6K for 1st place, €1.2K for 2nd place and €800 for 3rd place).

Please note that the PKRA Tenerife KiteMasters event will not count towards the 2011 Freestyle World Tour Title.

The PKRA Tenerife KiteMasters event is organized by Easy Events Solutions and supported by Reserva Natural, Ilustre Ayutamiento Granadilla de Abona, and Turismo Granadilla de Abona.
