Who on earth choose the final shots for this competition? WTF. You are running a traditional beauty competition and NOT one that promotes our sport and US real women who get out there and do it. You choose bikini shots over picutes on the water....?????

It is clear that a number of women who entered this competition cannot even kitesurf. they just are looking (understandably) for a way out of poverty. but come on. kitesurfers break the mould and are progressive, we dont accept things the way they have always been...so how can we be comfortable with voting for former USSR blondes who dont kite but look nice in a bikini?

I am a REAL kite girl. . ... I was really interested in following the competion and wanted to vote until I saw that this is nothing but tits and arse. - the ones with the biggest and nicest win, right? shame on you :argue: what you have done is not only promote tits and arse over our sport but you have also totally excluded us real kite girls who are on the forum from voting.. . . .we care about female ambassadors for our sport and I see only a few genuine ambassadors in this group.

Yours, a kite girl who does not fit your traditional image of beauty but rips on the water and wants our community to recognise ripping over tits and arse (aka dr. evil)

I'm also very surprised to see how little votes goes to Kristina - she had the best kitesurfing photos showing she is passionate about the sport and she can rip!!! She seems to be young and skilled rider! She is also very pretty girl, but her final shot above is rather poor... My 2 cent.
(BTW - I do not know Kristina!)

there is also the link to the original posting where all pictures can be seen!

The is not about the best kiting shot, but a contest for a girl who people think is nice and kites.
Therefore also the fashion award.

The headline of the contest also shows what the contest is looking for.

So everyone can look up ALL pictures and then decide, weather they want to give their vote to beauty or ripping.

But for sure in the future we gonna have a best girl action shot...I will start to look for sponsors for this contest.

Do yourself a favour and define the "action shot" before you begin the contest, I'm sure that it could be interpreted in various ways, not that I mind any such interpretations :)

Hi Toby,

Its fine for an element of beauty to be included in the selection but if this competition is about like you say girls that "kite" and are nice you should disqualify all of the girls who entered who DO NOT kite. There are a few girls who entered this competition who do not kite.
You should NOT allow them to be in the list of final girls and your final, shots mislead us because we cannot see who can kite and who cannot. Ok there are links to the other information, but lets face it which of you guys will actually go and study that and find out if they kite or not...
