From the 24th to 29th of April 2018, the biggest surf resort in Dakhla (Morocco) – Westpoint Dakhla hotel– will be the host and venue for the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour in wave and freestyle strapless kitesurfing.

The choice of the GKA to organise this event again next to the Westpoint Dakhla hotel is not just a perfect location of the hotel that is right in front of the competition venue, but also Oum Lamboiur wave spot delivers world-class waves that are perfect for strapless kitesurfing.

Already for the second time, spectators will be able to watch the competition right in front of their bungalows or from the famous BeWok sushi restaurant located on the cliff edge. Once again, this spectacular event will attract a huge audience and amount of media. For Dakhla as a destination, this will be one of the main annual events, proving that it offers world class conditions. Dakhla Events already organizes kiteboarding events with this scale for 8 years and always with a great success.

The GKA (global kitesurf association) represents and supports the interests of the kitesurfing industry and is a part of important safety developments of equipment standards.
