WOW! The Swedes really pushed hard last week and the results show. Our ranking leader Guy has been kept out of the top spot by Swedes Robin and Jonas ON SKATES!!!!
This is the first time we've ever seen skates at the top of the ranking and the first time we've seen anyone on skates go so fast. Very impressive achievement!!! Setting the bar high!!!
It just shows you never know what can happen until it happens. You just need the right conditions, with the right equipment and the right person to use it, to get some amazing results.
It's not an easy thing to do. But it happens.
So now the question I pose to you all is this. What is faster? Skis or skates?
Now, my response (and I'm a bit biased here) is skis are still the best tool for speed on a kite. But Robin and Jonas put up a good argument against this. Only time will tell.
Well done gentlemen. Very impressive.
Deadline for submissions for Week 4 is 12.28.18. Get out there, have fun, be safe, haul A$$. :-)
