Cannot and doesn't want to are two different worlds. I can land in more than 20 knots, since I am still on my 18 then
And yes, with 41 you can be more afraid. And I didn't see anyone in my age, and any other age pulling what I pull. That is my challenge, not be the craziest and most radical rider. I am holding down crazy lots of power and pull craziest tricks. All it takes to make me happy! The rest is for the young riders. All good!
I want to be an inspiration for those riders, who don't need the adrenaline, but rather have their fun in pulling new tricks and come home without injury. Most of the 30+ rider will appreciate it. Great, since they need inspiration, otherwise they will take surf boards in sub optimal conditions...to learn something new. And they still love to jump...the main reason people get onto a kite...
And at the KotA I expect the riders to show with every jump a different trick, at least in the heats.
Everything else is boring. And variety will always be the most important for me. In a KotA type of event I expect the winner also to do a boardoff or one foot...a real freestyle...dissapointed riders had boots. Less variety possible. I guess Kevin had the most variety.
And where is the megaloop boardoff...no one? In 2013 still no one? Young riders need to push more into all directions!
So, waiting for the video to see what was going on.
And yes, I don't like competition, since what I can do does not fit into 7 min! Although the KotA format sound great, with heats up to 20 min...I would like that too
