What's up with all these guys not even jumping 10m with loops without rotations etc thinking they make a shot at KOTA?

Not saying I am better than these guys, but let's be honest KOTA is the biggest most extreme kite event globally and due to the experience of recent years we accept nothing but extreme/high/risky moves. Just doing some plain (mega)loops is just not gonna cut it. There are thousands of boys and girls able to do just that. It's the variety and extreme moves which makes KOTA interesting and great to watch!

PLEASE know your skill level before entering KOTA...KOTA is BIG AIR/MEGALOOPS/VARIETY and new moves

from what I saw, Antonin Rangin is my favourite. Most alround tricks.

Shame if he won't make it!

oops, pretty impressed by this kid...never heard his name before...

look at 0:36 for a Kiteloop with 4x Backroll

and 0:49 for a stylish Kiteloop OneFoot

Looking forward to see more new tricks at KOTA 2020 !

I hope judging will give extra points for new tricks in 2020 :thumb:

I spotted that too. He is trowing a big kiteloop followed by a handlepass (at 27 seconds) Very impressive skills :thumb:

Yes, very impressive skills. But I don't think he landed that trick, did he?

(He still gets extra points from me for trying!)
