Hey Toby

I was wondering as you have a lot of experience in airstyle what would it take to make a world class airstyle tourment. What would it take to attract the best riders?

the opposite actually! Example: King of the Air...

It takes big prize money. We are looking for a big sponsor outside the sport who can fund a tour with the biggest prize money ever...then riders will train and we will see more progression.

And if no big sponsor, then there won't be a world tour. Go big or go home ;-)

We will see what future brings, we are having talks with potential sponsors. Wish us and the sport luck!
And if you can help then please get in touch with me at info@.... or PM me.

Until then I will keep pushing the tricks :naughty: New video online soon ;-)

KOTA has almost nothing in common with Toby style! Half or more of the competitors wore boots including the winner. Most were trying for massive loops with super lit landings. They were in high wind on 7-10 m kites. Jessie's signature move in those conditions is a kite loop handle pass.
