Visit Qatar GKA Freestyle-Kite World Cup Finals Qatar 2023

5th to 9th December 2023, Fuwairit (QAT)


The climactic final stop of the Qatar Airways GKA Kite World Tour is a thriller with the world title races in the Freestyle discipline still wide open after a season-long drama.

The fifth and final call at the Visit Qatar GKA Freestyle-Kite World Cup Finals Qatar plays out at the purpose-built Fuwairit Kite Beach resort’s lagoon, where the men’s and women’s champions are crowned.

The season’s climax in Fuwairit, in early December, sees the globe-trotting tour come full circle, ending where it began the year in February in the perfect Freestyle setting that boasts mirror-flat waters and steady breezes.

But after four stops the world title races are too close to call, with any one of a number of athletes still capable of landing the crown in kiteboarding’s key, Freestyle discipline.

Brazil’s Carlos Mario, the past four-times Freestyle world champion, leads the overall standings going into the final round. But his hopes of stretching his lead were dashed when he was defeated in the semi-finals of the last round in Cauipe, Brazil, earlier this month.
