Qatar Airways GKA Big Air Kite World Championships in Tarfia

Kite World Championships

Italy’s Andrea Principi came from behind in the thrilling final of the Qatar Airways GKA Big Air Kite World Championships in Tarfia, Spain, to take the win by the narrowest of margins and earn back-to-back Twin-Tip titles.

The second Qatar Airways GKA Big Air Kite World Championships saw more than 60 of the best kiteboarders from around the globe come to compete for the coveted crowns and a prize purse totalling €40,000.

The kiteboarding mecca of Tarifa, southern Spain, was again chosen for its reliable and strong Levante winds necessary for the Big Air disciplines. But the Levante has proved elusive lately.
