Attention Racers: Production Equipment Rules for 2012 Update

All equipment needs to be registered by the manufacturers and can then be found on a list on the IKA website. Only when the equipment is listed on this list it is allowed to be raced in international competitions.

National Associations may make different arrangements and allow older custom mades or non-registered equipment for an interim period to grow kiteboard racing locally, but for international competition these are the rules:
