Competitions can’t really do all that much for the image of the sport, and Kite companies are into sales, so they are limited to whatever the bean counters say. Their boss is the bank! So, they aim at the lowest common denominator... not the most sophisticated consumers!Toby wrote: ↑Mon Dec 04, 2017 11:32 amYes tea, this is the biggest mistake they are doing. Saying it since years...they still don't get it.Why the big brands don't realise this (and continue to promote this specialised wakeboarding try-hard copycat) style as the pinnacle of the sport makes no sense to me.
It makes no business sense and the number of kite sales worldwide year on year support this.
Now they hype strapless freestyle, because it is a great show and the guys rock the beach...they do, but, again a niche and guess what airstylers would do...and way more.
Tired of talking to them, so looks like I will go forward and do my own Airstyle events...and then we shall see who was right and who was wrong...
