WOO Worlds 2021 - Biggest Kite Competition Ever

Postby WOO Worlds » Sun Aug 29, 2021 6:27 am

Dear Kiteforum Community

As some of you might’ve already seen, WOO is launching the biggest kite competition yet, open to ANYONE, ANYWHERE: WOO Worlds 2021. And it’s just a few days away… :jump:

It’s a colorful mix of disciplines, including WOO Classics like highest jump and total height but also featuring new disciplines that make use of our Freeride functionality and give even people who don’t own a WOO Sensor the opportunity to take part in this amazing competition, simply by using their phone or apple watch GPS. Here we will see people compete in total distance one hour or be creative in draw a heart.

We are especially excited about the TEAM DISCIPLINES.
It’s the opportunity for you and your best buddies to form a team and storm the leaderboards!

In all of this, what counts is the fun. This competition will be about linking up with senders like yourself, about finding new spots on the lookout for the perfect conditions, about battling it out on the water and then becoming friends back on the beach. :remybussi:

But, of course, we know it wouldn’t be a true competition without PRIZES.
That’s why we linked up with some of the finest kite brands out there and are happy to announce that CORE, Duotone, Eleveight, FLYSURFER and Ocean Rodeo are onboard!
With their help we can stem a massive Cash Prize Pool of $30’000 and Kite Gear worth another $20’000+.
The Cash Prizes can be won by getting onto the podium, the Kite Gear will be up in a giant Kite Lottery. Every valid WOO Worlds Session will serve as one lottery ticket each. This ensures that everyone can win, even if you don’t go highest, fastest, furthest or most creative.

Competition will be up starting September 1, so get your friends together, make sure your WOOs are charged and be ready to take part!

For all the details on how each discipline works, how to participate and what else to pay attention, go to our designated competition Website https://www.wooworlds.com.

Thanks Toby!

We are excited that our first two Kite Lottery Winners are drawn, there will be 10 more to come!! :jump:

Just as a reminder for everyone on the forum: You can participate by uploading sessions to the WOO App with #wooworlds. Every valid session longer than 30min is a lottery ticket each. If you don't have a WOO Device you can also use your Phone or Apple Watch (and soon Garmin) to create a Freeride session that gives you helpful stats on your riding and lets you save and share your best adventures.

So if you haven't checked it out you should definitely give it a go and see whether you like it! :thumb:

Thanks, Toby. You're right!

and people seem to enjoy it a lot...

Although the wind hasn't been the best so far, there are already almost 50 teams on the leaderboard for Team Total Height. Currently on top are teams from Denmark, the US and Estonia.

This is a very funny interview we could record a view days ago, starring Lewis Crathern and two members of the Team_Bajetazo from Spain, current leaders of the Team_Max_Height leaderboard in the WOO Worlds.

They talk about 3 of their riders jumping a new personal best in one single day and about the secret spot near Tarifa that allowed them to do so the day before.

Give it a watch if you haven't already - these guys are awesome!

Sad is that people cheat posting unreal 10-20hr sessions.

There was only 1 session that exceeded the 10 hour mark so far and it was quite impressive at that!

Last Sunday, Martin Kent from Denmark went out from 6am to 9pm to stack height for his team, doing 6 breaks off 45 minutes in between. To save energy, he also used a seat harness which might not be the most stylish way to do it but certainly seemed to help :lol:

Martin was definitely not cheating and we don't know of other "people cheat posting unreal 10-20hr sessions". But since you clearly have more insight into this topic than us, feel free to share with us and the community :think:

Cheers! :thumb:

We have had a fun time here in Boston with the competition, I hope WOO makes this a yearly thing......Sadly we have only had a few good wind days, but made the most of them.
