Meet the Global Kiter Foundation!

Global Kiter FoundationThe next generation of kiteboarding is here! The Global Kiter Foundation has just launched with big ambitions for our great sport.

What’s it all about?

The Global Kiter Foundation is a fresh, new approach to kitesurfing. It is the only non-profit Foundation in the industry that aims to regroup kiters, professional riders, industry leaders, school owners, instructors, riders, beach users and supporters, to improve access to our sport.

Everyone in the community and the wider public can paly a role in GKF. Through committed environmental work, comprehensive education and an involved community, GKF intends on working for the good of kiting as well as the kiters.

Global Kiter Foundation - Kitesurfing Organization

The winds of change have arrived. Be part of them.

We are global foundation but we think local. At GKF, we are putting the focus on reinvesting in local kitesurfing efforts. Money raised through the foundation goes directly to improving your local environment through projects. Every cent donated goes straight to the projects you choose.

This is the 100% model in action; supporters decide where their money goes and see how it is spent.

Who are we? The team behind GKF has been involved in kiteboarding for over ten years. As co-founders and dedicated kiters, Sandrine Roussos Werner and Charles Werner saw a chance to develop a cohesive, inclusive organization. They want to bring the global community of kitesurfers together to share experience and knowledge.
