Just yesterday each country known as a "Member National Authority" voted at ISAF Conference in Dublin, Ireland. Men's and Women's Windsurfing is back in 2016 Rio Olympics. Kiting is out. Thanks to all the folks who signed the petition (over 32,000 strong) and participated in the fight since May.

It was never against kite board racing or kiting but rather not by eliminating the Windsurfing Class in the Olympics. ISAF Council should have eliminated one of the fixed mast class if Kite Board Racing was all the ready for the Olympics.

I have suggested that Beach Olympics would be a great Olympic sport: windsurfing races, slalom, and freestyle, kiting freestyle and races, SUP paddling races and SUP Windsurfing, beach multihulls, and possibly surfing along with Beach Volleyball.
