World Seeding List / World Ranking Point Calculation 2016

For all disciplines except Formula Kite (see World Sailing Ranking System)

Count every competitors best 3 results over the past 12 months for his seeding list / world ranking position.

Weight the results as follows:

5  70
6  60
7  50
8  40

The calculation of points remains unchanged, i.e. in expression disciplines the currently used "star system" (1000 pts for 1st, 920 pts for 2nd, 870 pts for 3rd etc)

Grading for Freestyle, Big Air, Wave and Slalom events from 2016 onwards:

World Level: 1000 points

National championship events may be designated by any IKA full member national kiteboarding class association. Continental and World level events will be graded automatically by IKA.
