What happens if someone who’s not a participant of Red Bull Kite Fight cuts my kite?
It doesn’t matter if it’s a participant or a non-participant; once you’re kite is cut, it’s counted as gone. You don’t get an additional kite.
Can I play it safe and not cut anyone’s kite and just look to be defensive?
This is Kite Fight, not a Test Match. If anyone is found to be playing it safe and not being competitive, she/he stands the risk of either being disqualified or her/his kite being cut by the Red Bull Experts.
How dangerous can my ‘maanja' be?
It can be as dangerous as you want it to be as long as you can hold it in your hand.
Can I use Chinese ‘maanja'?
No, only Indian maanja is allowed.
Can I use my own kites?
No. To ensure a level playing field, all the kites are standardized. Hence, only Red Bull Kite Fight branded kites, provided by the organizers at the venue, are allowed.
What happens to the top five winners of each city?
The top five winners of each city will proceed to the final round on January 14.
What will the winner get?
1. Title of Red Bull Kite Fight Champion 2017.
