2016 was the first year that wakestyle kiteboarding has had its own competitions series. In the past there has been lots of individual park style events but a few key park riders had the idea to start the website http://www.kiteparkleague.com/ to compile all of the results under one roof. With a unified judging, format and criteria they hope to push forward the disipline of park riding and push the level of the sport and media into the future.
The 2016 season comprised of five stops, starting in the Philippines with Blue Kiteboarding’s Palawan event, followed by the legendary Tripls-S in Cape Hatteras. Then heading to Hood River for the slider projects ‘Hood jam’. Russia’s world class kite park hosted the ‘Rail Masters’ and a new park in the UK was built up in Wales to make the ‘Rhosneigr Park Jam’ finalising the season in November.
