Re: Proof world sailing is trying to take kiteboarding for its own financial gain.

Wait a second: so you say that WS is responsible for the safety of the riders and have no clue?

As far as I know there was no bad accident so far at racing events.

What about KOTA...it is independent...

Now you tell me if this is a safe event.

Re: Boracay set to reopen. But did they ban kitesurfing?

Yes, all normal ! E-jeepney? I hope they banned all these noisy and stinky trikes (forgot their names). Several local kite business owners already suggested many years ago to make all vehicles E on the island...mayor didn’t listen...hope that changed now. It got really annoying and bad for health an...

Re: King of the Air 2019 - all info here - riders confirmed

Happy Carlos Mario is in...he has a high chance of winning.
I dunno, he looks like he only weighs about 55 kg, he might get blown off the beach!

Re: Fatality in France

Very good.
The launcher has to be as cautious as the rider...or even more.

So many times I stopped people from launching due to a wrong setup...while they already gave the thumb up...
