[quote="Toby"]If there is 25+ knots, then it will be cold, rainy and stormy with onshore winds...not good if something happens.
I already saw a kite flying over people into the car park behind the dunes...luckily nothing happened.
Freestylers should make sure to NOT have suicide mode when landing and launching their kites...
And if stormy, no one will watch/film anyway...so far it looks like easy winds, westerly depression coming, but doesn't look stormy. Let's hope.
And I hope to see the slalom...since I have my doubts that it will work ok if all start at the same time.
Still looking for a video of this...anyone has one?[/
Just a one minute clip of Brian Smith winning a heat at the Lord of the Wind slalom on a wakeboard.
Unless the legs continue to be this short, it might be the only win on a wakeboard.
They had 4 man heats. Windsurf has either 8 or 12 man heats. I reckon they could run 8 man heats in kitesurfing if everyone has a high skill level and they set the buoys far enough apart.
They have no rules in the kite slalom, which the windsurfers found worked better and avoided the arguments that you see at the end of this clip.
