The first stop of the tour was being held in Dakhla, Marocco, before the VKWC stopped in Isla de Coche (Venezuela) just last month.
After last year's success, the VKWC will arrive again at Tarifa, Southern Europe's popular kite town. The current Guinness Record of riders kiting together one mile was set last year, with 352 kiters present. This year attempt will take place on July 11th or 12th. For the decision will strongly depend on the wind forecast, the chosen day will be announced on the July 6th.
The meeting pointis in Playa de los Lances, km 80 de la Carretera N-340, about 3 kilometers north from Tarifa.
At the same time the VKWC will start on July 11th and show the two disciplines of freestyle and big air. At Isla del Coche, Liam Whaley and Karolina Winkowska succeeded their competitors in the freestyle discipline, whilst Marc Jacobs and Gisela Pulido took away the victory in Big Air.
