Yes, definitely Kevin Langeree on his Naish jumped the highest. Sorry that he didn't make the final. The Torch kites seemed to get the most height, and most hangtime. The Richmans would just float and travel further than most.

In the beginning when the wind was still light Reno from Brazil on his North Vegas impressed with the first few super high jumps, but everyone jumped high once the wind came through. Langeree definitely got the highest and consistently so.

Exactly - that is all there is to it - it is DEFINITELY the rider, and not the kite :thumb:

I could not care less, what kites they used :wink:

But the RIDER, and their performance on the given day and heats - THAT is what IMO is the only deciding part :rollgrin:

Torch was always a good kite!

I wonder how long my 18 would hang in the SA winds...and which tricks I could pull ;-)
