We are live on day three – the morning winds are still really strong, but the pattern in Neom is for the wind to ease off as the morning passes, delivering ideal freestyle conditions, so the event crew are analysing that at the moment – tune in now and don’t miss it!

Yesterday’s action on day two:
In the men’s the Brazilian’s look finely tuned but can they hold off the Italian flair and Colombian confidence?
In the women’s Lambrecht looks dangerous and Kajiya (women’s highest heat score) typically calm while Sol is surely still only simmering in the heat. We are all set for the semi-finals to come on day three (today).
Running as part of a dynamic major five-sport event, the Qatar Airways GKA Freestyle Kite World Cup Neom is the opening attraction of the NEOM Beach Games 2022.
The second event of the GKA Freestyle World Cup season sees the world’s best freestyle kiters re-start their campaigns towards the Qatar Airways GKA Kite World Championship title that culminates in Brazil next month.
A superb flat water spot with specially constructed facilities awaited the athletes when they started to arrive in Neom a few days ago. The Freestyle-Kite action promises to be as good as we’ve ever seen.
