KPWT or PKRA which competition is the biggest and the best?

Postby kiters_se » Mon Jul 28, 2008 1:52 pm

Price money?
Best riders?
Most publicity?
Most updated www-page?
Will some of the riders change tour?

Best wakestyle riders: PKRA
Best allround riders: KPWT
Most disciplines: KPWT
Best prize money: PKRA
Most publicity: hard to say...I assume equally
Website: design KPWT, but PKRA has better press releases per day

Riders changing? yes, some go to PKRA (e.g. Gisela Pulido, Sebastian Garat, Tom Herbert) and some to KPWT (Leander Vivey, Anja Greslinska, Kristin Boese)

Toby, for my first time I've got to disagree with you :D :D
Most PKRA riders are incredible allround, complete riders: they rip in the waves or when it comes to "old style-flysurf" tricks. Hadlow in the waves strapless or on a skim, Onieva performing sick board-offs, etc,... I mean, PKRA riders can do almost everything a KPWT rider can, but the opposite is not true.

Riders changing from KPWT to PKRA: No changing, but rather upgrading, imo.

Cheers!

but on the KPWT they show those overall during competitions, at almost every stop.
e.g. Jessie Richman may loose in Freestyle to Aaron, but would kick his ass in racing and waves.

Anyway, I think it should be like this:

KPWT: looking for best allrounder

PKRA: looking for best in each disciplines (currently mainly Wakestyle and Race. Waves and boardoffs are just one event, but should have at least 3 stops as well. The advantage is, that if you keep it separate, you will always get the best of each discipline.

KPWT much more interesting than PKRA. Both have incredible riders, but I would not ride a particular kite because "X" rides one in competition.
