New Registration System for Course Racing Boards and Kites available

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The new registration system for boards and kites is available with immediate effect.

This new system has been developed together with ISAF to reflect the necessary changes to ensure a stable price environment and world wide availability, adressing all issues brought forward against the box rule ending up in an "arms race". With this new system, the current building technology is retained, while development can still go on within the normal product life cycles. No single manufacturer or national can gain an advantage by investing in expensive development, as all development and new equipment must be made available for everyone.

Builders interested in registering new equipment are advised to contact the IKA office.
