  • Title: ISAF committee meeting – kiteboardings future still hangs in the balance | Jade O'Connor Kiteboarding
    Descriptive info: Jenny Cooper.. liked this post.. One thing I know to be true.. Kiteboarding requires someone with vision, with imagination to try it, to become a rider, or support it's development.. If your the kind of person that gets hung up on details then your in the wrong place, because its difficult to understand, it rewrites the rules of speed and maneuverability, and employs new methodologies, it's something you have to feel rather than understand.. Much like Foiling Moths or AC72, they require a leap of faith.. Olympic dreams are still alive for kiteboarders around the globe but as we wait for ISAF to cast the final dice on Saturday.. In Dublin, this is where we are.. Box rule most likely in, one design out - excellent as it allows a greater weight range in the class.. Trainers coaches don't have to come from existing pool of MNA sail staff - good decision to aid quick development of fleets.. An excellent introduction to kiting book released by ISAF - nice job.. Now the big news -.. Events committee voted that ISAF council reconsider they're decision to allowing kiting in the Olympics and reinstate windsurfing by passing.. submission 55-12.. Why did it happen? Some elected ISAF members simply do not get kiting, it scares the hell out of them.. Others are absolutely pro windsurfing and you can't blame them for that, they each have a national programme in place, money invested, local parents and sailors who have their email and even home addresses.. It's easier to continue on the windsuring path, as change requires them to  ...   that of many at the conference) is that the council defer for yet more evaluation.. I'll be the first to admit that kiting is the harder option for ISAF, and if they wait 4 years it might be easier, but the same is true of waiting 8 or 12 years.. It all comes down to how progressive ISAF are willing to be :.. - If they recognize that windsurfing's RS:X course racing discipline is waining and outside of the Olympic pathway it does not appeal to windsurfers.. While kiting has all that passion (and stress (and media attention)) associated with bleeding edge growing pains and youthful vitality.. Then vote for kites.. - On the other hand, if your afraid of the windsurf Mom's, the heat and wrath of your established community and change in general then windsurfing is your obvious choice!.. ISAF.. I urge you cease the day!.. News Update: Friday 9th November.. Today, couldn't have gone better.. The ISAF council required a 75% majority to re-open the discussion on kbr vs rs:x.. With votes falling 26 to 12.. kbr is in the clear.. Things are looking up.. Its tantalizingly close.. bring on General Assembly tomorrow afternoon for final votes.. This is Kiteracing !.. from..

  • Title: Championship Life In Motion. just 24 hrs!!!! | Jade O'Connor Kiteboarding
    Descriptive info: Jason White.. ,.. Aisling Daly.. Just 24 hours ago the European Championships in La Baule, France finished, an incredible regatta with the worlds best in attendance in preparation for the World Championships starting in tomorrow in Sardinia.. Congrats to Steph Bridge (Team GB) on winning.. wow! she’s fast.. La Baule was a great venue offering challenging racing with shifting winds, tides and weed all adding to the drama.. This was also the first event under ISAF scoring and the launch of the Olympic courses and race format we will use till Rio 2016.. The atmosphere was electric and the riders passion riding fast and sharing knowledge is what makes this community special.. It’s amazing to see how quickly things have changed, just a few short months ago I was racing at the Austrian tour stop when it was announced that kite racing would be in the Olympics, now only 4 months on the energy has gone through the roof.. almost without exception the girls are now full time at training and pushing like crazy.. Teams are developing, coaches and support staff to the racers a common sight.. Without exception the prize is now 2016 and its gold, silver, or bronze.. My goal on arrival was to stay close to the pro girls, if I could finish just after them then that would be a great result.. In the end thats exactly what I did, I held my own and I’m super happy with my  ...   burn’t so I expect to be able to ride the championship, although I’ll miss the pre-training days.. I gotta say; a super huge thanks to the Emergency room in St Naizaire who spent over 90 minutes working on my wounds, went way above the necessary and even made a special prescription when the knew that I had to race again in a few days, they where so sweet and really kind to me.. you guys rock!.. What does the next 24 hours hold? So now that the Europeans are done, I’m on the ferry back to Ireland, for a few hours rest, food, change my gear and pick up a prescription for my leg burns and fly to Piza in Italy first thing in the morning, and then to Sardinia in the afternoon.. Bring it on!!!!.. The whole tour is right now in motion, almost 200 athletes full of hope and preparation are descending on Cagliari to do what they do best.. I’m so looking forward to getting on the race course again, every cell in my body aches to go fast on the water.. The most amazing thing of going to international events is the knowledge I pickup from the other riders, the only way to improve is by this kind of competition and right now I’m lucky to be at the stage where every day, every race I get a little smarter a little faster and a little closer to my goal..

  • Title: Volvo Ocean Race Puma/Laird SUP racing | Jade O'Connor Kiteboarding
    Descriptive info: It's not often you get a chance to race a cutting edge 14' SUP raceboard designed by the legends that are Laird Hamilton who needs no introduction and Puma's VOR'70 boat designer Juan Kouyoumdjian.. (.. Puma/Laird SUP.. ).. When the opportunity arose this weekend to race to just such a board (if you made the final), how could you refuse? So with a 6am start to drive to Galway a bunch of the Dublin race scene regulars shot down the motorway to the VOR Galway Stopover.. With 30 competitors registered in Women's, Men's and Junior classes of the PUMA/Laird SUP experience paddles where laid to battle under the expert eye of.. Mark Paaluhi.. , the only goal was to get to the final! and onto one of those 100% monocoque carbon beauties.. So whats the 14' really like?.. Initially I didn't like it, everyone I spoke to was commenting on how technical they where to ride, so armed with a little insider knowledge  ...   board as your now standing so far forward, that the slightest bit of chop washes away the unweighted tail with the dual fins a solid 8 or 9 feet behind you and nothing to keep them biting.. Was it quick.. conservatively I'd say lightning quick, but its really hard to gauge as the bow wake is completely different to any other sup.. Definitely directly upwind or downwind this board is a race killer, but cross wind and cross chop.. tough call with such limited experience of this impressive monster.. If I was to hedge bets I'd say for a heavy rider above 90kg the whole feeling would slot into place like hand a glove!.. The Mens Winners Circle.. Little Oul Me (Ladies Winner) Picking up some excellent Puma prize swagger.. Volvo Ocean Racers 2012 after the Galway inport race.. Leon Demonstrating Exactly How Fantastically Big a Puma/Laird 14' really is.. the width of the tail alone is like no other SUP you've ever scene..
