Queen of the Air UK. Big Air Comp 2017

Queen of the Air UK is a UK-wide, female-only, year-long ‘WOO’ competition. Use the hashtag #queenoftheairuk on your WOO session to automatically enter. In December we will be dishing out prizes for biggest air, longest hangtime, total accumulative height, total accumulative airtime, biggest G-force on a jump as well as the total accumulative number of jumps.
As well as a prize fund, we have some exciting prizes donated by our sponsors Airush & Surfladle, including wetsuits, harnesses and a wake skate. Plus a 'Sewn Again’ bag (these are made from Aaron Hadlow’s ex kites) and some awesome Nalu merchandise. We will be posting more details about prizes as the year goes on, so watch this space!
Queen of the Air UK is a female-only competition, set up by two avid female kiteboarders (myself and Andrina Kelly), we are on a mission to showcase the awesome female kiters we have riding here in the UK, and to get more women involved in the competitive side of kitesurfing. We will be running smaller fun competitions throughout the year, so make sure you follow us to keep informed.

It is sexist, it's just like saying that women are inferior to men.

They should be allowed to compete side by side with the men

Then tell me why the serena sisters are the best tennis players in the world? Tell me why Ronda rousey could probably beat any of our asses? Yeah, being a male or a female has nothing to do with anything

Instant Fail - we all know the Woos are Not accurate and randomly give different results blaa blaa blaa :jump:

And Sandra, can I take your board with the Woo for a few jumps... no one will know, can be our little secret :thumb:

All comps need to be live - or it will be quite easily manipulated for the Big Brand sponsored rider to win.
