The 30 best kitesurfers of the international circuit will finish their competition series of the World Cup 2008 from Oct. 4 to 11 in Chile.


The kitesurfing is a sport where a rider on a board is pulled by a parachute in the water.


The stage in Chile will be the 10th and last one of the competition which will define the champions on "free style" and "waves" of 2008.


The competition will take place for the second consecutive year in Chile in Matanzas beach, resort at the Navidad commune, 140km southwest from Santiago.


On free style the leader is Dutchman Kevin Langeree who faces the challenge of British Aaron Hadlow (four times world champion), Spaniards Alvaro Onieva and Alex Pastor, and Swedish Mikael Blomvall.


The waves event will be decided among Argentine Martin Vari, Australian Dreu Bebais and Brazilian Guilly Brandao.


The organizers made the competitions to coincide with the International Day of Cleaning Beaches, which pretends to make conscience on the care and cleaning of the beaches.


The Cleaning Beaches International Day is celebrated every year in 123 countries to pick up garbage and solid wastes in sea and river littorals.
