If your are not a kite-surfer i should explain what “VKWC” means, it is the “Virgin kite-surf world cup”, also the world championship of kite-surf. They take place the first time in south Africa and the organizers have choosen the wind-safe Capetown.
The Event takes place from 4.-13. december. In this time the world best kite-surfers are going to prove their skills and fighting for the sought-after, and well paid, podium places. The event is divided in different categories like freestyle, big-air, wave and slalom, also man and woman are going to be divided. The event is really interesting for kite-surfers but also not-kite-surfers are going to have fun looking the pros making complex freestyle maneuvers, flying thru the air at over 10m height or just riding the waves.
The world-cup takes place at Big Bay, which is about 20 km in the north of cape town and it is a visit worth!
