My family and I are here in Los Barilles, Baja, Mexico for a couple kite events with yesterday being the first day of competition. Here is a quick update: We did slalom competition and a big air contest with both events almost finished. Conditions were around 20 kts of wind. In the finals for men kite pro division there are 6 finalists with Johnny Heinekin, Bryan Lake, Jacob Buzianis, Jake, and two twin tip guys that I do not know (skaggs?).
Highlight was watching Johnny riding a raceboard and doing a race board clinic on jibes! Very impressive!
Here is Adam Koch during the slalom on his raceboard

Hi Alex,

Thank you for the update.

Which kite won the Big Air contest (and which kites were on the start)?

Cheers

Hi Alex,

What is this for a (Cabrinha) bar setup and what kite hangs on top?
Doesn't it hurt with the ball banging onto your hand all the time?

Cheers

We have not finished the Big Air contest yet and I did not see any of the results posted yesterday from any of the heats from the previous day.

This is a racing bar with adjustable 3/1 pulley system that I built for my daughter Alexis. She had a 7m Crossbow on at the time of this pic. Once you start using an adjustable racing bar, you might use it for all of your kiting. I even used mine at Jaws.

Hi Alex,

Thank you.
What is the difference of your custom made strap to the "regular" strap which comes with the kite?
Easier to pull/release?

You can both pull in and release from the same line so you don't have to take your hand off the strap to adjust it.
