The Asian Kiteboard Championship Tour at Pak Nam Pran Beach on March.
The Pak Nam Pran event follows directly on the heels of the Kitesurf Association Thailand’s own National Championship in Hua Hin the weekend before at Surfspot, which is planned to enable all the Thai riders to make just one journey to the area for two events and for the early birds from the KTA to warm up to the Thai conditions in advance of the Asia Tour event. The KTA helps to support the Thai Nationals and they hope that they can see many more of these iniatives develop over the coming seasons around Asia as it gives as sport a solid foundation to grow from.
With a total discipline entry of 85 for this round the Kitezone KTA Thailand was set to be another busy competition, but with this being the home event for the KTA the Thailand rounds are always a chilled affair and very much the kite event by kiters for kiters. Based once again at the Kitezone Pranburi things were warming up nicely as the last of the riders arrived and the KTA Kite Kids went into action for another very successful of power kite training sessions for the local Thai champions of the future.
