Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

Kiting is not finalised as being included in the olympics. There is the $ link right there... IKA is that private company its company bank account called the "Windsurfing International Association". I can understand why sailors/ sailing clubs are pissed off with World Sailing. 23 000 people petition...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

Nothing wrong with a bit of danger, it's risk managing it with the correct/adequate experience and without conflicts of interests that is most important. I believe it is highly unsafe to have a sailing organisation / sailing clubs managing the wide range of kiting safety considerations that have abs...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

Safety should be taken seriously nothing 'low' about that, especially youth. You cannot have sailing clubs looking after safety, many are not even safe locations for lauching and landing. When it comes to other disciplines it is just an absolute joke. World sailing made no friends when it claimed to...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

Makes no sense, the ac sail they call a wing you talk about does not create lift. World sailing created banned events and made legal threats.. world sailing is an absolute parasite feeding off kiteboarding. You didnt declare if you have a conflict of interest or not in this debate, others have quest...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

I would say action sports/extreme sports whatever you call them tend to have the biggest push against becoming olympic by their participants. They get in a position where they don't necessarily want to be olympic because they know all the crap that goes with it. When skateboarding was announced an o...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

i was out kiting in the Hauraki Gulf and saw the Americas cup boat using a kite with my own eyes while kiting, the NZ Herald ran an article too. Oracles base was NZ. I have many friends that worked for AC. Americas cup is a special event sanctioned by World Sailing. They sanctioned that a kite is no...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

In 2010 an Americas Cup boat was flying a kite at the top of its mast in the Hauraki Gulf, NZ The Americas cup rules state that an AC boat must be "a yacht or vessel propelled by sails only" Since a kite was not a sail, the use of a kite was not permitted by World Sailing. Much the same as when the ...
