Frank,

I think you missed my point. I would like to see "Pro" riders compete without the luxury of decent wind just to see what they could pull out of their asses. Of course I want to see huge loops and huge air, but since they are there, and not really doing anything but fucking around anyway, It would be nice to see a lightwind comp. Why not? When the wind picks up resume the competition. I think a lot of people would relate more to the no wind comp and redbull would draw more people in. Look at kite manufactures the light wind kite market is probably the biggest.

There's contests for that all the time, it's called the PKRA.

You might find it boring to watch, I used to find it boring as well untill I progressed a bit more with my riding and started to appreciate it. Not so much the live streams but the daily edits they used to have were great.

Looks like Dimitri is the only one to come out on top. Certainly RB and all 24 riders are losing out.

Lame ass wind the first day so D fans can claim he is fully capable of all that went down and would have kicked ass.

Will be a running comedy to see how long some of you keep living the King Dimitri dream.

It's up to the future king to show that he is better than Dimitri ;-)

Well if there isn't enough wind to crown a king, you and Granny D could always duke it out for court jester.
