wow Jens, what is your mission here?
The sport should be happy there is one more aspect to it.
Why not have more extra comps with Airstyle, for those who like to compete and push into this direction?
We had an Airstyle world championship in Germany...some riders complained a lot and got titles and prize money, they wouldn't have without all this. Nice! Awesome! They should be happy and proud. But no return from those riders. They just don't get it what other people do and how much they could gain from it.
And sorry, but this is fact: the majority of the people on the beach prefer Airstyle over Freestyle. This includes spectators, media, normal kiters and organizers. Sorry, I get that feedback, not you or an Alex Pastor. Just talk to some other people rather than just your gang and you will know that there are other opinions.
Just accept, and do your thing and let others do theirs.
What you don't get: I am pushing my style, yes, but I also support all others, by having dedicated forums, supporting the pros, events etc.
Yes, there is more than Airstyle, and yes, there is way more than Wakestyle.
PS Jens: where is the kite skill when you keep it just low?
