you have obviously not watch toby ride then,,, he cannot land tricks in more than 20kts and kites smaller than an 18m..Lanc wrote:Most of the jumps involved riders trying to do the biggest mega loops with a tweaked grab or roll. I was a little disappointed that there were very few board offs, except from kevin and nick with his one footer kite loop special. Toby would have definitely made the comp more interesting.Y
Youri did some handle passes through a megaloop. Someone else did a double mega loop, cant remember who though. Ruben was not riding as hard as he usually does. I was most impressed how all the riders recovered so quickly and stylishly from some very bad wipeouts/landings.
the way they run these competitions, you ride off against another kiter at the same time (this helps eliminate one heat where the wind is great beating the entire heat without wind).BillyGoatGruff wrote:I am bit confused as a few people that were there all said Kevin Langeree was boosting the biggest and scored the highest jump all day... how come he did not win it ?
Toby is an awesome rider but he's too afraid to die, and he's too old to change now, lol. To win at these competitions you have to be willing to take some risks. Which is the way it should be, Toby put together what looks to be a pretty awesome video but he's not a tournament rider.Lanc wrote:oby would have definitely made the comp more interesting.
