The box rule has a minimum weight, 5kg I think. There's also a production minimum, I think it's 30 boards which isn't a lot. But at least this means board development can continue to happen. Box rules are way, way better than "on design rules" where people end up buying 10 boards and finding out which one is fastest. You're right about kites, registration seems pointless, just go with the silly low production minimum.lander wrote: But why havving this list as long as the equipment is following a box-rule ? This rule could also incl. weight of board (so a custom would have no advantage over a production, but I could be proud riding my own board) and the rule could aslo give the kite a box to fit (And I could use my mothers home made kites)

How much does it cost for a brand to register a product? And really what good does the monies spent do? I mean IKA certainly were not on it when it came to get kiteboarding into the olympics.
Their website still shows 2011 registration information, which makes them look a little well not quite up to par.
My point is only if you start charging for something you have to follow up and be professional.
I am probably a little peeved that kiteboarding missed the mark so badly in becoming an olympic sport.

Are there any minimum requirements for number of kites? I mean it would not be as hard to sell 30 super high tech kites and sell them...that is a lot harder with boards.gbleck wrote:It's to avoid people using one off high tech supper prototype kites.
