I see you have had a
in the other thread as well and excuse my Italian, but I have never been there and my neighbour is from Vietnam so here is my 20euro's worth
I do understand your problem, but all businesses have rules, regulations and issues they need to overcome to carry out their business. Some companies go to a bank and ask for 1 billion dollars, some need to test their product for years before they are allowed to sell to the public, I bet that is harder than submitting your design to IKA
I am sure Aguera and ML were once small like you.
You are in control of your own future, rather than come on here and state your case to people who will not be in a position to help you, probably don't care and have no interest in how you will buy food tomorrow.
Submit a design to IKA for approval? (they have not restricted this to just a few)
Can you get a bank loan and make 30 boards and sell them (business is all about taking a risk to succeed, success is rarely handed to you on a silver plate).
Find a talented local rider who will assist you and use your product so you can win some local races and get more sales and help you achieve the sales volumes you need to get bigger?
Can you make a SUP? (they are selling well)
Can you make surfboards?
Can you make race fins? (not restrictions or limitations here yet).
Could you start another kite race competition were you can make you own rules and invite people to participate in your events? (this happens all the time with other sports when people don't like the rules).
Can you get a job with north or RRD as a designer?
Have you emailed the IKA to see what it would take to register your design?
Have you lobbied the IKA to have them lower the number of boards needed to be produced?
Have you emailed all the other small race board builders so you can all get together and try to improve your situation?
Have you lobbied the IKA to ask for some sort of exemption or some way for the smaller board builders to get a foot in the door?
There is nothing at all stopping your local race organisers from host a custom board class in their competitions, Have you lobbied any european kite organisations that might host a race meeting to see if they are willing to host such a class, I bet if you put up a small amount of cash for a prize they would (get other custom board builder to chip in as well, hell if you could get more prize money than the production fleet which competition do you think everyone will want to race in?
Gee and if your board wins some races others will want to buy it then you sell more then you can submit your design to IKA.
The IKA are not against you, they have come up with these rules supposedly for the good of the sport, they are our governing body and we need to trust that they had a big meeting and went though all the pros and cons and did not take this decision lightly.
If raceboard design is your only source of income you need to start thinking how to overcome this obstacle right now
What you do tomorrow will depend on what choices you made today
Now this only took me about 20 mins to dream up, what can you think of with a good nights sleep
