"Bet in details:
Date is 8.-9.
Toby is the unbiased judge
Each of us will bring 2 identically boards with us. After testing the
boards, we can choose if we want the FS or Best Board in each lap.
If we get more competitors, we will bring more boards with us. I
recommend limiting it to overall 4 competitor brands to allow a fair
competition head by head.
We do a 3 time 500m upwind course with one completely relaunch with
leading edge down while the upwind course. At the end we make 3 jumps.
Hangtime in sec and jumping height in m will be measured from the video
tape. The time for going upwind incl. relaunch will be reduced for the
Hangtime (seconds) and Height (meter) from the 3 jumps.
We should also count time to for looping the kite 3 times and decrease
it from the upwind time.
If someone is handycaped by someone else, Toby is free to restart the
lap for a fair event.
As it is a light wind competition we should do it at an average windspeed
from 6 to 12 knt. If we have very gusty conditions, we still have to do
our competition. That will help to see how the kite works in such gusty
wind and how the windrange is.
The 2 of the 3 Laps of each will be added. She shortest overall time is
the winner of the light wind competition.
At the end everybody can show to the video tape, how stable the kite is
and how it is to use in is such light wind. Also it is very welcome to
show the top and absolutely low limit of that kite to the tape.
After than we change the kites and try to destroy the kite from each
other which crashing it to the Water.
All details (jumping height, Hangtime, Turningspeedtime, Upwindtime will
be separately shown on the tape).
Rider weight is incl. Board, Harness, must be min 80 Kg which should be
a good standard weight.
If the forum wants. Toby will buy our serial Kites on the Market from our money.
The competitors will pay the flight and accommodation for the judge and
cutting of the tape.

So its not only low wind, we are talking about fun factor here. If you are still willing, lets get it on. We all want to have fun on the water so lets see which kite will deliver.
