Ruben won't win, just because he likes some other guy to win

I think the strong contenders are Kevin Langaree, Jessie, Aaron and Sam Light.... I think Kevin has the best chance.

Agree 100% with BillyGoat, 1,2,3 - Kevin has the best local knowledge and had it in the bag last year until he made a single basic kite choice mistake.
Andries had a great chance but has already made a basic mistake ;)

I guess J. Richman has a good chance if he's going as strong as last year.

In the top 5 I see: Hadlow, Langeree, Crathren, Richman and Nick Jacobsen.

Amped...can't wait for the show!

ok, since I want to see not only kiteloops, my vote goes for Tom Hebert...I hope he rides with straps, since he can do it all, including nice Airstyle tricks like Boardoffs and One Foots.
Plus he has all the kitelooping handlepass skills as well.

Throw in a nice Barefoot Slide Tom!

But...good luck to all riders!

And I hope judges do judge variety more. This is what people want to see besides height and power!

Agree - but only somewhat...

Maybe the term '"Who is going to win" is wrong, yes - but still fine to talk about what the different riders might be able to do, and just have some "smalltalk" here, like if you sat down one evening with your buddies, talking about "who" is gonna participate and win this year :thumb:

Of course I hope Nick will do great again, but it IS an open competition meaning you have to be the very best, AND have some luck, AND do the right choices (but all of this combined, IS being the best, right or ?)

8) Peter
