Kitebording: rules are changing

The official kiteboarding rules have been changed by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF). Several relevant changes are introduced. For example, there are three disciplines: Racing, Expression and Speed.

In the Racing sector there will be the following formats: Course Racing, Marathon, Downwind Racing, Slalom, Boarder X and Kitecross.

In the Expression sector, there will be the following formats: Wave performance, Freestyle, Wakestyle, Hang Time, High Jump, Kite Loop and Sliders.

In the Speed sector, there will be the following formats: Offshore Speed Courses, Speed Crossings and Alpha Speed Course.

The new Appendix BB only includes changes to the rules for Course Racing. Additional changes for all other disciplines will be posted in the next weeks until a final new version of the Kiteboarding Competition Rules has been completed.
