No handle, no progression.
Ban boots in freestyle is equivalent.
Ban boots too in the comp, make the playing field level, same with the handle, they clearly don't need it judging from what we saw and are progressing well.
Airton rips but... separate comp , holding the board between your legs is banned though with a $10 000 fine.
I don't have a problem with Angely - her first loop was worthy, for sure an inspiration to others girls too . . we have seen it in other action sports - huuuuuge gains in girls riding quality over the last 10 years, would be good for it to be kiteboarding's turn to increase it much further.
I don't really like seeing them risk their necks for such a pittance in prize money vs risk when it comes to that 36+ knot stuff, not really fun seeing 2 people knocked out and drowning last year only to be rescued just in time to survive.
