il kitesurf riconosciuto a livello mondiale??!! Sembra di si...

Sembra che le intenzioni ci siano, leggetevi questo articolo:

For the first time in history, the 2009 kiteboarding world championship title will be sanctioned by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF). This became possible by approving the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) as official class association during the quadrenual ISAF general meeting in Madrid last week. From now on, Kiteboarding is on par with other parts of international sailing as the “Volvo Ocean Race” or the “Americas Cup”

To Markus Schwendtner, executive secretary of the IKA, this is an important step towards the positive development of this young sport: “Giving the world championship rights to the IKA clarifies the structures in international kiteboarding and ensures same reglementation for national and international kiteboarding competitions. It has now become possible to compete under consistant and recognized rules. Thereby the sport becomes more attractive and transparent to athletes, spectators and the media”. In the past, international kiteboarding competition took mainly place within two private world tours. Thus there have been two world champions, elected by different sets of rules.

The world wide unified rulebook used by the IKA paves the way for a global world ranking with one conjoined world champion. The ranking is intended to include the present world tours, independent organisers and national events. “National competitions become more important, because active sailors can collect valuable points for the world ranking already on a national level. Furthermore, access to the formula one of kiteboarding becomes accessible for a broader base of sailors”, illustrates Thilo Trefz, organiser of the German “Kitesurf-Trophy”.

The international kiteboarding scene welcomes the development as well as event organizers around the world, where the approval of the IKA earns positive feedback: “St Francis is very interested in hosting the course racing world championship and have a place holder on our 2009 schedule for a major kite event.” says John Craig, race manager of the renowned St. Francis Yacht Clubs of San Francisco.

The IKA is now looking forward to start negotiations towards a worldwide coordinated regatta schedule 2009. For this purpose the IKA invites all promoters, organisers and associations to cooperate.

I colori del Fuel


Visto che come tutti gli anni Slingshot non ha un campionario di colori ben precisi per i suoi kites, su kiteforum.com c'è un topic dove gli utenti pubblicano tutte le cromatiche viste ed esistenti dei Fuel 2009. Ecco il link: www.kiteforum.com/colori_fuel09

Anemometro fai da te


Tipicamente un anemometro non costa meno di 50 €, ma se non avete molte pretese potete sempre provare a costruirvene uno con una spesa di circa 10 €.

Tutto quello che vi occorre è un computer da bicicletta, nei supermercati si trovano per meno di 10 €, 2 o 3 palline da ping pong, dei bastoncini, un tubetto di plastica, un tappo, colla e silicone.

Per sapere come montare questi pezzi seguite le istruzioni QUI

Ozone 2009 Instinct Kites


Ozone Instinct 2009 Kites are due for release in January!

The 2009 model Ozone Instincts continue with the same naming structure as 2007 and 2008, with an Ozone Instinct Light, Sport and Edge.
Bringing the whole Ozone range in line with similar artwork and designs the Ozone 2009 kitesurfing kites will share similar graphics to the 2009 Snowkites and the new Ozone Yakuza GT .

The kites will feature a new tip profile aiming to achieve a greater direct feel to the kite through the bar. The bar system is getting another upgrade, still retaining the moulded Ozone chicken loop it will now have a through the bar flag out safety system.
