As part of the Cabarete Kite Festival – from 9 to 15 July event celebrating watersports, ocean awareness and entrepreneurship – the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour: Air Games round three will take place throughout the week in front of the Millennium Hotel.


Day One

The main event window officially opened yesterday as the the last remnants of a dramatic tropical storm that had raged through the night blew out to sea. Thankfully, the thunder and lightning ceased by mid-morning but the turbulent weather wasn’t going anywhere and Cabarete’s natural cross-on wind direction was skewed, with the wind blowing a little more side-offshore than usual.


Day Two

In the day was flat-out from the start and stacked with heats at the GKA Air Games Cabarete as 38 riders battled through the single-eliminations powered by the super-consistent Cabarete conditions.

After yesterday’s slow start, the riders were eager to get moving and the men’s division was up first with a posse of talented local riders taking to the water for the first time on the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour, all of them out to represent on home turf!


Day Three

Another jam-packed day of competition today at the Air Games Cabarete 2018 as the single eliminations wrapped up and the riders pitched into the doubles.


1: Carlos Mario (BRA)
2: Posito Martinez (DOM)
3: Paul Serin (FRA)
4: Jesse Richman (USA)

1: Mikaili Sol (BRA)

Day Four

We’re getting down to the sharp end of the competition here at the GKA Air Games Cabarete and today we saw the competitive field whittled down to just six women and seven men as the final stages of the double eliminations beckon.
