Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

1000s of kids can do mobes today glued to their board, very few can land any strapless tricks at all. i snapped my ankle doing strapless freestyle, been smashing myself doing wakestyle stuff for years ( recently retired! i think..) never getting an injury like that. wakestyle was fun in the begining...

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

it is simply down to progression imo , any freestyle sport that doesnt move forward is not going to have the awesome hype associated with breaking new territory. youri zoon wanted to turn wakestyle into iceskating and imo that was a total fail. even streetleague in skateboarding is relatively boring...

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

i have met a few younger riders getting into it and they are inspired and love it, but generally i would say not only wakestyle died, kiteboarding overall died down a lot too.( aussie)

had a session this week on my own... 20 knots+ , perfect swell.. no one else out.. been happening more and more.

Doing pretty much the same mobes for ten years plus was a sure way to kill freestyle kiteboarding..it worked.

Boardriding vloggers

Add your fave awesome action sports vloggers ( not just kiting) to this post. I know of a couple of kiters that do them but think that kiting generally falls behind big style compared to other action sport vloggers. With Facebook / insta dying fast right now due to being 5hit, I thing vlogs are the ...

Re: Girls Rush to Seal Youth Olympics Places in Tough Racing in Thailand

Yeah possibly, it was more an observation that the selling point of kiteboarding was, youth participation, increased participation of poorer countries, and a youth development program. It was clearly all talk with no substance, none of the points realized whatsoever. Absolute fakery. What is tough a...

Re: Joint Statement from GKA and KRU regarding the Freestyle World Tour

My guess. Huge windsurf pressure and that they became progressively more scared of liability, and rightly so. They were getting involved in something they knew next to nothing about, that wasn't even sailing, that involved a sport where a high %age of injurys and deaths involved a wing launching/fly...

Re: The GKA Kiteboarding World Tour 2018 has launched

I don't think it's a bad idea wakestyle is stuck as the least progressive format right now imo ( 319 one of very few new tricks for last few years), you l need the riders on board tho.. look how stoked hadlow was to be doing board off kiteloops tho in kota lol Will they ban handles? Lol Then there i...
