From Woo:

We love the daily battles on WOO, the progression it’s spurred in all of us, and the community that’s come together to share sessions on WOO, so once a year, we’re going to raise the stakes! WOO Worlds is a celebration of the gals and guys that shred in all corners of the globe and it’s an opportunity to get creative with who a kite competition is for and how it’s run.

For the inaugural event, we’re putting up $30k in cash prizes and $20k in kite giveaways! Want a piece of that? Read on for an intro to the format, or jump over to the Rules for all the details on WOO Worlds 2021.


WOO Worlds will run in the month of September on the WOO App and at wooworlds.com. Any kiter from anywhere in the world can participate in the disciplines below. For disciplines that are jumping based, you’ll need a WOO Sensor to log a session. For disciplines that require GPS tracking, you’ll use the WOO App on either your Android, iOS phone, or Apple Watch to record a session:


Highest Jump Male – The Classic. WOO’s bread and butter has always been the simple challenge: How high can you go? Sept. 1-29

Highest Jump Female – Ladies! There’s a category of Highest Jump just for you. Send it! Sept. 1-29

Highest Jump Junior – Groms welcome! Junior Highest Jump is for anyone 16 and under. Sept. 1-29
