I suck! (not dick) But i dont claim to be the master of the kiteuniverse, nor try to convince people that the ugly shit i pull is even harder than what these KOTA talents are doing. Thats the whole point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The bassplayer is more impressing than a megaloop my hairy ass!

Its really getting old and i am really getting tired of having to read it over and over and over bend over again

you should do some comps on a higher level and see what the crowd likes, you then would be more quiet and respectful.
The guitar or rock n' roll is such a trick. It is called entertainment or show.

I am not saying I am better than the KOTA riders, I am more show in the area I can do it.
I do megaloops or unhooked, I suck; I do Airstyle, I sick ;-)

Back to topic:

the semi finals will be rerun tomorrow. RB extended the comp for a day, luckily, first they said they won't.
So there will be a KOTA 2015! :thumb:

So, did they call it quits before the semi-finals could be run? If so, can't they stick around one more day and finish it off tomorrow?

The wind dropped to below 15knots during the semi's. Took Sam light about 5min to relaunch his kite when it landed in the water during his semi. Worst wind for a king of the air comp ever, poor riders couldn't show off any big air or ballsy megaloops. It basically turned into a light wind free style comp in in the last few rounds. Ruben and Jesse looked like they made the most of the bad conditions.

credits to RB to extend it, would have been a shame for all involved.

I heard tomorrow's forecast looks good, even better than today, so glad they will re run the semis.

3 more heats in total...so only 1 hour of good winds needed...I am sure it will happen!

Good luck for all remaining riders :thumb:

And good luck for us people not being there...to have at least the Dirty Habits livestream!

All updates will be posted HERE again.

Wow Toby, I already knew you were really full of yourself, but you just took it to another level in the last couple of posts... Congrats.

Some people may like to see you spinning and flipping your board with an 18m while jumping 5m.
As there are also some people who like to see freestyle/pkra stuff.
But I think the majority of the crowd would rather see some huge airs and megaloops...

And also we got the point that you like Dimitri, there's no need to mention him every single time you post something.
