RSX is the current form of Olympic windsurfing and requires major pumping in light winds. Some of the more traditional races allow NO pumping. In any case ....
Why not have more than one windsurf discipline ? RSX, Formula, DIV2, slalom and why not tricks on waves ? That could even be performed indoors like they did in France - with loud music :-)
I have NO personal opinion on the matter - never even having watched this on TV or live. Some of this difficulty is probably due to spectator factor. Kites can run closer to shore. Maybe they will have a trickster competition ? :-) Forget speed - who can go higher ??
Then again, just look at all the comedy there will be:
and the good news: WINDSURFING is BACK in the 2016 Olympics.
The decision was reversed later in the year. with another vote naturally.
Unfortunately for kiting - they were NOT admitted into the 2016 Olympics.
