*All riders will accumulate points based on participation and score in all Kite Games events. Rider with the most points at the end of the weekend wins an inclusive weekend for two in the Florida Keys including resort stay at the Caribbean Resort, dinners out, complimentary lunch, kite trips and more! (restrictions apply). More events entered= better chance to win!*
Scoring: Divisions will be U18, Women Am, Men Am, Women Pro, Men Pro and 65+. Riders will only be judged while inside the marked competition area. Anything thrown outside of that area will be disregarded. Anyone riding between competition area and land other than launching and landing will be automatically disqualified.
No limitation in maximum number of moves/combinations attempts per heat (including crashes) or repetitions for the same jump. Only the 3 best tricks of the whole performance will be counted and will form part of the final result.
Variety within your best 3 moves is a key-factor, as focus is to prize the most complete rider. A 4th score (unique score) for overall impression of the entire performance will be given at the end of the heat, this score will be determined by considering a combination of different factors as: technical difficulty / style / variety / execution / risk / show / innovation, this will be added to the total score (could make the difference). The average of these 4 scores that weigh evenly will be the final score. Tied competitors’ heat scores shall be broken in favor of the competitor with the highest single score. If the tie remains then it must be broken in favor of the 2nd highest score. In case the tie still remains it shall be broken in favour of the rider who has the higher score of Overall Impression.
First Place will be awarded 10 points, second gets 7, third gets 5 points and anyone that enters and finishes event gets 1 point.
ALL RIDERS MUST COMPLETE A WAIVER BEFORE PARTICIPATION!
Due to the expenses incurred for a first-year kite event, registration will be non-refundable. Rain/No wind date is the following weekend, November 20/21. In the event that we are unable to have the contest at all, registration fees can be applied to a future event, or used as store credit.
