Course Racing Equipment: Important information for competitors

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Attention all course racing competitors: please be aware that from 2012 only equipment on the registered equipment list is eligible for racing. However, kites of model years 2011 and before are automatically granted eligibility for racing. If you are not sure if your kite is a 2012 model or an earlier year model, please contact the IKA office in time before the competition.

The updated equipment lists can be found here:

Production Equipment Registration Scheme 2012

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The equipment registration schemes for course racing 2012 are available now. They can be downloaded at http://internationalkiteboarding.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=4540&Itemid=281.

The biggest change to the board registration scheme 2011 is, that equipment now needs to be registered 60 days in advance, before it is eligible to be used in competition. This is for both boards and kites.

The first major event 2012 (as announced to date) will be the Asian Course Racing Championships in Thailand from February 14-19, 2012, so all manufacturers are encouraged to register equipment well in time to be eligible for competition in the first major event.
