Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

The best thing about kiteboarding in the olympics is not the actual contest with I largely agree with cloud about. The best thing would be the olympic youth program for young kiters that we would have as nations would encourage young promising athletes who might otherwise go into some other sport t...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

For the athletes that love kite racing, how is it a bad thing to be able to participate in the Olympic Games as a sailor? I understand what IFKO are saying, but in my country IFKO have no pathway or established infrastructure to support a racing scene - we rely heavily on local sailing clubs to pro...

Re: Kiteboarding is officially sailing, gets its own medal for Paris 2024

I don´t need to listen to podcasts to make up my mind about IFKO, their current president used to be the local kitesurf association president. As for Sailing stealing kiting that’s hardly a good representation of past events. It did not need to be Sailing, but since some kitesurfers decided to be th...

Re: Kiteboarding is officially sailing, gets its own medal for Paris 2024
