To clarify a couple of points at the KOTA:
The judging crtiteria was biased 75% on height and 25% on the trick.
You could do a trick only once and be judged on that, if you did the same trick a second time it was not marked.
If you did not land a jump/trick cleanly i.e wiped out, it was not marked.
So the emphasis was definitely on max height plus variety.
The swell at the end of the event had 3-4m breaking waves in middle of the contest area so not sure how Toby would have coped with that
KL was probably best overall, but on the day he just had a bad semi so was out.
Ruben was never in it, he never realy got going and couldn't get his usual height - local opinion was that he was just not used to his new kite brand.
Sam Light on the other hand on his new brand started slowly in the early rounds but just got better and better.
Perhaps says something about the 2 x brands involved?
There was plenty of professional filming going on so suspect that there wil be a nice Red Bull movie showing up sometime soon
Overall it was a super spectacular compo and format with the worlds best kiters.
