Most kiters ride hooked twintip.

Why not attract the biggest group but instead go to niches?
Doesn’t make sense, never did.

Nothing should be excluded, but ALL should be included, specifically the main group.
Presumably the competition can run in less wind by going for hydrofoils? I'm guessing that the right wind for a GOOD airstyle competition is 18-22 knots. I'd guess that you could run this one in 14-18knots?

I like the idea of a no limits freestyle event though. Throughout a tour you'd really sort out the rounded riders who can ride in 20+ knots on a twin tip and in another event on a foil with 15knots and still perform well in front of the judges.

yes, that sounds good. Hooked though. Bring your Foil or TT and show what you got in 14+ winds. Love it. SHOW !
