World Sailing as they were at the time isaf.. said you cannot be the fastest sailor as you are using a kite therefore it is not sailing... lol then a handful americans lobbied...lol and they decided to alter history.

and there you go. it wasnt kiteboarders worldwide lobbying saying errr, hmm we are sailing lets be the fastest sailors and rewrire the history of the sport.

For sure kiteboarders wanted credit for being the fastest wind powered craft on water using something 1/1000th the price of sailing kit.. but at the expense of being sailors... all joining sailing clubs( that are totally unsuitable).... nope.

The silituation has already started to effect grass roots kiting and has already trickled down to industry too imo.

World Sailing has no grass roots in kiteboarding its a big con job, and if kiters/industry believe that being part of world sailing even via thier subcontractors (ika/gka) will help thing$ i think they are mistaken. imo it is going to make things a whole lot worse.

Nice airs Leo, you are without a doubt the best person at these.But you'll need to catch more waves if you want to win the nationals fair and square.

(Your industry connections and attitude won't be getting you bonus points. hahah.)







Maybe when they do a wave comp with actualy waves and not wind chop i will surf and not do airs

Nope, it will be a kiting event sanctioned by World Sailing (the kitesurfing thieves) via their subcontractors the GKA in 2ft slop with a huge sideways sweep and 8 knots gusting 28.. and we will rejoice as history is rewritten as they compete using the (c) " racing rules of sailing (kiteboarding class)"....... in waves.... using a...... kite ! lol wtf!

Dont support any kite surf events that support the theft of kiteboarding by World Sailing... KA GKA IKA World Sailing.

By kiters for kiters, from the very top down is the right way to go, so many conflicts of interests with World Sailing claiming to be the authority for all forms of kiteboarding on water. Rediculous.

This year the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour will visit Australia for the first time in December when the tour hits the infamous Bells Beach in Torquay near Melbourne. A regular fixture on the WSL, Bells Beach has played host to some of the biggest moments in the history of professional surfing and it even featured in Point Break!The event at Bells Beach will be the final stop of the season on the KSWT where the Champions of the Kite-Surf World Tour 2018 will be crowned.

Why was Bells chosen? Are the most common winds at that time of year SSW, as thats what it would need to be side shore. Anything with too much W and its unrideable and NE is onshore which probably is not ideal for these world class riders?
