Kite-Surf event in the wonderful Saquarema, Rio De Janeiro

Copa Kitley Qatar Airways GKA Kite-Surf World Cup 2023

Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro (BRA), July 31th - August 11th, 2023


The Qatar Airways GKA Kite World Tour hits Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in 2023 for a Kite-Surf world cup event! The second stop of wave tour to debut in Rio de Janeiro with top athletes slated to battle for glory in 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, has a 12-day competition window to allow for the best possible conditions.
