Unfortunately the PKRA is the only organizer not willing to cooperate at the moment and trying to bypass national and international interests, so we were forced to publish this open letter to PKRA tour manager Mauricio Toscano:
The draft rulebook has been updated, including the requests for change by the kiteboarding community and the St. Francis Rulebook.
- add a new rule for "passing"
- while tacking, gybing, looping and jumping
- Outside help
Our next focus is on the general rules for kiteboarding. They neither form specific guidelines about how an event is run, nor pricemoney distribution, points, code of conduct, entry eligibility etc.
They are intended to form basic rules that can be applied all around the world to ensure comparable competitions, give a help to the race committees and especially let you, the riders, know what you have to expect when going to an event.
This extended rulebook will be transfered in a reader-friendly version of only a few pages, including points etc. as soon as the process is finalized.
We want to invite you to comment on the rules and send your ideas back to us. The full document is available here for download
