IKA, PKRA and KSP agree

The International Kiteboarding Association are pleased to announce an update to the kite wave world championship and world ranking system, which results in combining PKRA and KSP into one united world ranking while maintaining the directive to determine the world champion from the best wave kiters in the world's most desirable wave kite locations. This system has been agreed between IKA, PKRA and KSP after three months of negotiations and satisfies the needs of all parties.

The amended world championship system has two parts: part one is a combined point system in which points are awarded to each event depending on conditions, contest duration, judging and prize money, resulting in the KSP events having a higher number of points than the PKRA events, but keeping the point difference minimal to give PKRA riders the possibility to play a major role in the ongoing world ranking. The point system is available on the IKA website for review.
