Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

they dont count as they mostly dont pay for their gear or they get it for 70% of wholesale.. less than resale value.. so its free anyway at resale foiling is generally for the older generation, same in surfing with a foil, same with sup foil.. gives them focus and passion... not a bad thing as you g...

Re: Small Kites who is making them?

Re: The Perfect Kite Event - how would it look like?

worthwhile (big/ huge) prize money to enable overseas riders only grassroots kiteboarding involvement something for non competitors to get involved in so they want to attend format wise.. probably not good to force riders to ride in a certain way that they dont really want to, just doing it for spon...
