this sux (hangtime)

Postby Toby » Thu Mar 22, 2007 1:54 pm

now the PKRA Fuerteventura doesn't offer hangtime any more...course racing instead.

Ok, Fuerte is off my schedule...who can tell me which events offer hangtime?
All the KPWT events???

Very easy to judge who comes across the line first in the same conditions.

I think races are fun. But now they took all big air stuff out.

Now the sport is really gay.

Does KPWT have hangtime or not?

Toby, you've got the most popular forum, why not start your own competition circuit in Europe and South America?

this is a full job to do...I don't have the time.

But I already had some talks...it will not be a tour like PKRA or KPWT...but more like you see in other sports. For sure that will be future.

Once I can say more I will!

Until then: I want to fly with guys who enjoy it too...so, where is a hangtime comp???

Hey guys, Coarse Racing is Sick. Not gay at all. I think that we should have more coarse races and more hang time events. None of the technical BS. Also Racing is fun for the crowd because they can clearly see who's winning. Like a car race, just we are not going 200 mph.  :lol:

jesse has a good point. It has to be a crowd pleaser. More hangtime and racing, less technical stuff. The crowd won't understand whats a mobe or f-16's.

what will be the rules ?? is there any info about that ?
it does not look like kiteboards are made to compete all together in big numbers (let's say 50 / 100 all together) my feeling is that a kitecross or slalom (heats) formula fits better :?:

any how course racing is the best way to improve some of technical points in gear (wings and boards) such as speed and upwinding ability (range as well).

Course racing experience will definitely add performance to standard production and that's enough (to me).

No needs to get involved, no needs to blame it.
