Day 10 Livestream | Copa Kitley GKA Kite-Surf World Cup Rio

The Qatar Airways GKA Kite World Tour is excited to hit Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in 2023 for a Kite-Surf world cup event! It’s the second stop of the 2023 tour and a debut in Rio de Janeiro with top athletes slated to battle for glory in this renowned break. The tour leaders stamped their claim on the crown in the pure wave surfing contest in the legendary break of Cape Verde’s Ponta Preta. But the swell and wind in Saquarema can vary, with the effect that the contest may feature a mix of pure wave kite-surfing and strapless surfboard tricks, depending on the conditions. Thirty-five of the world’s best kite-surfing athletes—25 men and 10 women—from 14 nations around the globe are slated to battle for the crown in Saquarema. The spot on Saquarema’s Itauna Beach, a World Surf League stop last year, will have a 12-day competition window to allow for the best possible conditions.
