JKI 2010 Januarary 29th, 30th and 31st

The 2010 Jupiter Kite Invasion has gone through a MASSIVE overhaul in its format. To make the event as simple as possible, there will be a single entry fee for the events. There will be an amateur/professional and mens/womens division that will be split at the event. We will run events pending weather conditions and number of entries. Below are the basic details for each event.

  1. Big Air Expression Session Each heat will have 10-15 riders in a 20 minute expression session. This will include both best kiteloop and overall best trick. ALL JUMPS MUST BE DONE OVER THE JUMP BOUY!
  2. Race The race format will be integrated from course racing (sailing) and boarder cross. The course will depend on the conditions present. The number of races held will also depend on the wind. The format and rules will be explained thoroughly during the riders’ meeting.
  3. Strapless/Wave and Freestyle – This format will be standard single/double elimnation.
  4. Paddleboard Don’t be afraid of lacking wind. Juipter Paddleboarding and Jupiter Kiteboarding have teamed up to make sure you have fun at the 2010 Jupiter Kite Invasion! We will have races, and pending waves…a surf event.

BY REGISTERING ONLINE, YOU SIGN UP FOR ALL EVENTS. Riders will be asked which event(s) they would like to compete in on the first day. Pending weather conditions we will limit the amount of events each rider may compete in. For example, you may only be allowed to compete in 1 or 2 events above.
