KIT M91Y - W590Y - S330Y - FK647 - YOUTH FOIL CLASS IKA
I am proud to announce you that SAB will provide the equipment for the new IKA one-design youth kitefoil racing class designed to inspire a new generation of young athletes to join the sport on the pathway to Olympic glory.
The competition to provide the foil and board for the new class was a tighter affair, with Moses, Taaroa, Cabrinha, Levitaz and F-One among those vying for the prize. In the end, Moses with our international reach won out with the carbon fibre K91-590 foil and carbon T65 board that boasted perfect mix of performance and accessibility for novice athletes.
The IKA Arrows Youth Foil Class for 11 to 16 year-old boys and girls (U17 age category) will provide a safe, stable and highly competitive one-design racing platform for young kiters who will go on to become Formula Kite racers battling on registered series production foil kites and hydrofoils that will be used at kiteboarding’s debut at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games track in Marseille.
In doing so, the IKA anticipates to mirror the phenomenal success of windsurfing’s low cost and accessible youth Techno 293 “feeder” class that unlocked young athletes’ competitive drive.
The new Arrows Youth Foil Class offers an affordable way into racing for families, sailing and kiting clubs, and World Sailing Member National Authorities (MNAs).
The first events for the new Arrows Youth Foil class are planned for summer 2021, held together with the Formula Kite U19 Championships in order to bring all young kitefoilers together for competition in a foil festival atmosphere.
