For me it's now more a PKRA event with handlepasses etc .
( it's just an opinion hè )

What would make it KOTA again.. Just judging on jump height? That would be pretty boring..

Or is an old skool move allowed? ;)

I am not into freestyle, but agree with Johnny, it was awesome !!!

For one, we havent seen all jumps - but secondly, the others clearly had more different jumps and when doing high loops unhooked, of course it should give more no matter what - when done with style :thumb:

Kevin had the highest and extremely stylish jumps though - but not the same variation nor difficulty so seemed fine how it was judged.

Personally I liked his jumps the most, but not as difficult nor more risky :naughty:

it was a good mixture of styles. This is what KOTA and Big Air is about.

Should be more boardoffs though...people love them.

It was awesome! Kiteboarding at its best. I could see maybe increasing the height score by 5-10% to push it even bigger. Congrats to all of the riders.

I'm amazed that an event like this doesn't required something basic for protection like a helmet.
