Mika's Pro Kite World Tour

My name is Mikaili Sol, I am a professional kiteboarder with a unique story. I am only 13 years old and on my way to be the World Champion! I qualified last year for the Professional World Kiteboarding Tour but due to my age, I was not allowed to compete. After proving my level over and over again in 2017, the World Kiteboarding League, WKL, has changed the age limit to allow me to participate for the 2018 World Kitesurfing Tour! I represent both Brazil and the USA because I am both Brazilean and American! 

 Don’t think I am avoiding my studies. I am very fortunate to have a scholarship at the World Class Kiteboarding Academy, WCKA, where I get to study and also train for my kitesurfing competitions.

My Accomplishments to Date:

2017 WKL Qualifier League Pro Tour Egypt: 1st place
Overall 2017 Qualifier League Pro Tour 2nd Place (Qualified for 2018 World Kiteboarding Tour)
2016 Leucate 6th place finish and qualified for WKL World Pro Tour but too young to participate (12yrs old)
2015, 16 and 17 Jr. World Cup Champion France
2015,16 Jr. World Kiteboarding Champion Spain

Why do I need to raise money?

I am only 13, I am not allowed to travel alone nor would it be safe! I have an amazing sponsor but unfortunately it doesn’t not cover everything nor does it cover the expenses of one of my parents! I am raising funds to help pay for the expenses that my parent will need while my little brother and other parent stay home to run our business so I can follow my dream.
