This is from their website, looks like we have to wait a bit till they know what exactly was voted on...

Quote:
From 2011 on, racing will take place in an open division and in a production division, which is strictly box-rule controlled and limited to 1 board and 3 kites that every competitor can register per event.

The dimension of the boards to be registered are:

Max Length: 190 cm
Max Width: 70 cm
Max Fin Length: 50 cm (no change from current class rules)
Min Weight: 4 kg (for directional boards only)
Max Kite Size: 19 sqm (no change from current class rules)
Max Line Length: 45 m from bar to top of kite (no change from current class rules)
Max Boards per event: 1
Max Kites per event: 3
Min number of equipment produced: 50

These limitations will be used for a separate division in 2011 and will become class rules and thus the only allowed equipment for racing from 2012.

The minutes of the meeting will be published in the next days with further explanations and voting results.

The IKA is convinced that the limitation to box-rule restricted racing equipment gives kiteboard racing another boost as equipment becomes affordable and accessable for a wider audience.
