The ICTSI Philippine Kiteboarding Tour Season 4 heads to Boracay this weekend with a stellar international field gunning for top honors in various divisions at the Bolabog Beach.

The organizing Philippine Kiteboarding Association is expecting around 100 competitors in five classifications, including the men’s and women’s Masters, the Juniors and the Novice.

The event, serving as the penultimate leg of the four-stage circuit, also serves as part of the buildup of the country’s top riders gearing up for the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina next year.

Early leg winners Ken Nacor, Doque Delos Santos and Red Bull ace Christian Tio banner the star-studded roster in the three-day event firing off today (Friday) till Sunday that also drew the participation of top riders from Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and Slovakia.

Meanwhile, Solar Sports will telecast the event with the thrilling action can be viewed live on Facebook live streaming (www.facebook.com/pkatours/).

The circuit kicked off late last year in Cuyo, Palawan with German Kathrin Bogwardt and Boracay’s Nacor leading the winners, who included Ming Juan (novice) Atte Kappel (Hangtime), Tio (freestyle), Aussie Ali Dudfield (freestyle). Bantayan, Cebu hosted the second leg last month with Tio, De los Santos and Juan also scoring repeat victories in their respective divisions.
