Focus on... the Rules

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

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
