Dimitri probably will not get in. His video does not follow KOTA judging rules, very few landings on megaloops are presented. Video is too long.
I believe he still has the time to re-submit a 120 seconds video.....here's how to shave 45 seconds of it
( And change the title to.... 49 years old Dimitri King of the Air )

Remove the intro where he's walking slow to the beach for 16 seconds
Remove all the low altitude take off blind... land blind for 13 seconds
Remove the breaking of the tree branch for 6 seconds
Remove the ending with the old lady for 10 seconds
It what a good video should have anyway. All the fluff is just wasted time.
He still has to add some landings.

All this said the voting doesn't necessarily impact the decision of whom is accepted.

I think Speedos video should have automatically gotten Dimitri a pass as appealing and arousing to Austrian sugarwater headquarters. But missing a mustache is probably enough of a reason to disqualify him.

See the others with Megaloop, Boardoff Megaloop and Boardoffs...competition evolved.

It would be fun to see him compete. But I would rather see Janek in the comp :D
Ruben Lenten just submitted a video thats about 5 min long...let's see if he will be disqualified because of this.
Is it really his submission, cause that vid is from ...2008....

But it reminds you how hardcore his kiteloops were on those Fuels. Good god it looks so out of control, he needed so much power to get high enough for the kite to catch him.

Fair play to all the guys and gals in the videos, they are doing stuff I couldn't dream of emulating, but Len10's video is so raw, so uncontrolled, just balls of steel.
