After watching the videos I would Anthony Chavez and Jeff Kafka would smoke these guys.
Hopefully in the future we will see.

who knows...Bruno is very good, he won 3 times France course racing tour, is current European champion, and now PKRA world champion.

He won over Sean Farley, who won Mexican nationals and several US races. And over Sami Gali, who won the Spanish championship.

But for sure...can't wait until all of these guys come together and race...hopefully next year on the world cup tours! But one thing I know for sure: I will film, and not race these guys ;-)

Sean Farley not even in the running with Kafka and Chavez unless he has gotten a lot better than last year.

I was told yesterday that Kafka is sending out a board for Sky Solbach to use. Let see where he place over. He got 8 in the US Nationals.

The International Sail Federation is going to make a kite class so it looks like there might be a World Championship next year.

in a previous post you sd "the PKRA and KPWT will have world champions as well, this year!. well actually, the PKRA had a World Champion last year; Cabrinha's Shawn Richman. Yes, the course racing in Canada was billed as the World Championships. that's the problem with the PKRA and KPWT..they are "self proclaimed" events. When the International Sailing Association recognizes kiteboarding as a fleet later this year (following the actions of the US Sailing Association) event will be held in 2008 and a true World Championship Course Racing Event will be held and sanctioned.
