This year the KPWT wants to be more spectacular than ever and appreciate that an engaged kite loop is the most spectacular trick. Hence the introduction of the new Kite loop World Tour in their 2009 calendar.
The First Kiteloop contest 2009 will be organised during the Seat Kitesurf World Cup in Germany 16th - 21th June 2009 in Sylt.
Registration: 15th June 2009. The prize money will be 8000euros. Winner Men: 3,000euros / Winner Women: 1,000euros
The rider who shows the highest engagement, combined with power, speed and a clean landing will be the winner.

? 10 points Technical Difficulty considering:
- height (rider above kite)
- risk = likelihood of failure X consequence
- the power the kite delivers at critical points (body inverted, unhooked, etc)
? 10 points Overall Impression considering :
- clean landings
