The Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational features the top professional wakestyle kiteboarders from around the world. We’re often asked, “Who gets invited and how do you decide?”

Here’s the breakdown that lead to the final competitors list of 24 Men and 8 Women:

Men: 24 Competitors

1-16: The Top 16 Men from the previous year’s Wind Voyager Triple-S Invitational automatically re-qualify for the following year’s event

17-20: 4 Invited Riders. These invites are given out based on riding level, competition results, and the ability of the rider to potentially place on the podium. All four of these invitees get into the main event, so they are all equal standing.

????: 4 Alternate Riders. These alternate spots are given out in order #1 through #4. Alternate riders are invited into the event, in order, if any spaces 1-20 become open and available. Alternates are not guaranteed a spot in the main event, but none the less, being included in alternate list means their kiting and competitive level is recognized among the top riders in the world. Alternate riders should prepare a Wildcard Video or plan to participate in the Wind Voyager Triple-S OPEN to further their chances of entry into the main event in the event they don’t get called up through their alternate seeding.
