I will make a call on one guy only at this time. Dimitri will not only get in but also win the whole thing.

If it wouldnt be a hoop hoop megaloop competition with max air in strong winds I think Toby will always be putting on a fun show.

But KOTA is a format for Dimitri - He will definitly give Kevin, Tom and Ruben a hell a lot of pressure! He is able to win it I guess!

So:

1 Dimitri Maramenides
2 Tom Herbert
3 Kevin Langeree
4 Ruben Lenten

Nonono,

This topic is about the ones making it into the comp, not winning!

Once we have all names who entered comp, we start a topic about who is going to win!

Do you have the link to the guy ripping with one arm? I'd like to see that! He seemed to have a lot more 'have fun kiting' than a lot of the other videos I watched. Also Dimitri - he always seems to be having a laff.

don´t know who will be picked; this is what i would like to see:
- 4 wild cards for any ´top gun´ not pre-qualified - the likes of Youri, Alex P, Marc Jacobs...
- 4 wild cards for girls - Karolina, Gisela, Bruna...
- 4 wild cards for recreational/ex-pro riders - Toby, Dimitri, etc.

think the winner will be someone from those that do the PKRA tour

Why delusional?
Dimitri not only can jump high and do multiple loops but is using the most powerful kite on the market and knows it. It's 70% air right? So before he lands he can pull something out of a hat just like that, and if conditions are not quite to everyone's liking who is better to improvise? And lastly the event is sponsored by energy drink, right? Who would you pick as a poster boy for energy drink?

Dimitri will kick ass. Promised. He can win it, I am very positive about it.
He has the variety, the style, the show, the power, the height.

I hope to see him in the final with Tom Hebert...will be a close decision. The higher one will win.
But in that final the show will be ON !!! :thumb:
