Where do you see snow kiting going in terms of style?

"paragliding" (big air) or "Park" (trics etc)

personally I enjoy "surfing". By this I mean riding drainage ditches (essentially a half pipe), or riding along drifts kinda like down the line wave sailing.

Park and Freeride......and maybe a little bit of flying around for the hell of it.

got to take it to the park, tricks and spins and huge exit jumps, lip to lip across a half pipe, all that sort of stuff, next year will be radical.

I think we will see a good combination of both types, people want to see the Pascal Joubert jumps as well as the park style.

Personally I also love the park style tricks.

I've been trying that "lip to lip" thing
on some local ditches (15' across x 4' deep). It works, but you got to get the angles right. I do a simple back loop in it (crossover back) mostly its just a back loop with a weird landing. Definitly like to see more of the Euro pro's. Nothing realy like that here in N.A.

What I have seen here is a lot of people trying to copy what is done (kitesurfing) on the water. I'd like to see more innovation less immitation.
