I'd be more interested to see Jamie compete in an Airstyle competition with a foil kite. He's got the board-offs and spins nailed already so it would all be about whether he can get the power away from the landings for the slide tricks.

Would prove the doubters wrong that foil kites can be good for Airstyle too.

100% agree!

Ram airs SUCK at BIG AIR. But if ram airs are genuine contenders or actually good at BIG AIR, let's see it at this year's King of the Air https://www.redbull.com/au-en/events/re ... of-the-air

Foils are good Airstyle kites, lift, hangtime are given.

He did already such a competition where he got second after Charles Brodel. This guy is a multidisceplinetalent
