Dear MASSkiting friends.
We wanted to update you on what has been going on behind the scenes:
The current version of or website is built on a platform that is now out of date and no longer supported. A recent server update has rendered most of our site unviewable. We have had some friends look at it, and are still weighing the options. If we cannot just fix what we have, we will have to migrate our site and at the same time upgrade to a newer platform. This will not be cheap. We thank everyone for your ongoing support and we will let you know if there is a way you can help in the very near future. More soon, with LOVE - Mk admin
2013 Hardwater Kiting Snowkite Global Speed Ranking weekly results.
Racheal Miller owner of Stormboarding and host of the former Kitestorm event in Vermont has convinced us to take on the task of hosting a speed competition based on the original Stormboarding World Speed Ranking. As many of you know Stormboarding hosted a world wide speed ranking for nearly 7 years and had entries from all over the world. Rachael and I feel that Hardwater Kiting should host a new ranking to pick up where Stormboarding's ranking left off.
The difference between our ranking and the original is we are allowing Kitewings to participate. Though technically not kites, there are enough people riding them that we felt it was fair to allow them in.
We've set it up on the website and I'd like to know what people think. Bear in mind this is very bare bones right now but if there are any issues with the rules or who qualifies I'd like to know now before the end of the month when it goes live. If you have any questions or comments I'd love to here them.
Please check it out....
I may need to buy myself a device....
Jean a strap on device is good so you don't drop it Sorry
Can these readings be achieved with the Kitetracker app?
No worries, I'm sure I am too slow anyhow.
Chris I was ripping Sun and Mon on my 3.5m LEI and hit a top speed of 32.34mph. Am I the only one riding a kite this small in these winds? It's a lot of work handling a kite that small but tons of fun when a 40+mph gust hits you backside.
