Impressive, hope they include him; the judges are a clichy group that are not that into Big Air - they hate boardoffs because they are mostly PKRA style wakestylers (at least in prior years they were).

I think that changed. Luckily.

Nick J won and I don't remember seeing him doing a handlepass.

KOTA gets better every year! I wonder when guys like Reno Romeu go back to straps...he used to do nice boardoffs...I hope guys like him realize soon that just megaloops and rotations with grabs only will never win again. Judging looks more at variety these days.

The red bull king of the air video submissions are clear

you must have side view.
Take off and landing must be clear
continuous film of big air no cuts
other tricks didn't count only big sir

I counted one or two tricks that count but even Kevin langeree hasn't done megaloop board off so well see. if he doesn't make it it's because he didn't follow the video sub guides


siiiiiick rider I hope he makes the cut

We the kitesurf community should come up with a scoring sheet, so 10m kiteloop with board off scores more than a dangle pass. Is that possible? Is there a list of tricks?

We could never agree. Look at people like kas...just forget it. Unfortunately.
