Wakestyle isn't about grace, nobody doing it cares about that shit. It's about landing your trick before you hit the water. And it's so fast that most of the time it's hard to see the flow of it. That's why even I get bored of watching it too, because it's too fast for me to even comprehend most of the time. But when you're actually doing it, it's more fun than it looks.alexeyga wrote: ↑Tue Oct 24, 2017 7:10 pmDude - like I've said - whatever floats your boat. If you believe that wakestyle is the pinacle of the sport - good for you. Nobody argues that it's easy and doesn't require a great deal of athletic skill. Though - it might come as a surprise to you - but not everybody are into fat chicks...LetsFlyaKite wrote: ↑Tue Oct 24, 2017 6:33 pmAnyway, all bullshit set aside, I think the reason why wakestyle is featured everywhere is because it is the most extreme form of kiting there is. When you see an ad, do you want to see someone killing it in the air being upsidedown with the handle behind them? Or would you rather see someone standing on a foil board doing nothing? The only people that i ever see complaining about wakestyle are the people who can't do it
My point remains the same though - wakestyle looks uninteresting and has no visual flow in videos. There's really no point in being fed that much of it from kite companies.
B.t.w. has anyone noticed that most female teamriders can't jump or loop for sh@t? All they do - some awkward-looking handle-passes without any grace or style?
I saw a video recently with slow motion wakestyle which by the way was awesome because it was smoother and easier to figure out what the rider was doing.
But to me it just sounds like you don't like it and want kite companies to advertise whatever style of riding you want, because you must think that everyone should have your taste in kiteboarding. No man, we don't...
