No. They are evaluating kiteboarding vs the RS:X windsurfer.

The info I got is that they are excluding The STAR class and adding Kite. Some Famous Brazilian sailors and olympic medalists like Torben Grael and Robert Scheidt are already complaining and saying that the decision is a mistake. I am a bit confused but I strongly belive that kite will be on the 2016 games.
