For several years I support and militate with International Kiteboarding Association ( IKA ) and support their actions of bringing the kitesurf to the Olympic Games of 2016.
Last may we had an unexpected decision that has been made. The kitesurf has been admitted to the Olympic Games of Rio in 2016. This november the general assembly of ISAF meeting should have been just a formality because ISAF committee had approved the decision last may.
Unfortunately, the various representatives of the national sailing federations decided otherwise and returned the windsurf back in the games by kicking the kitesrurf out and caused many athlete, as well as mine, disappointment. The dream of seeing Kiteusrf in Rio2016 has just collapsed.
No matter what, the battle is still not lost and we believe that kitesurf will become the discipline of the future Olympic Games.
