Re: King of the Air 2016 - all info

they had like 4 different cameras. Maybe more. Unfortunately one was a bit too dark. So were they swapping a lot from different camera angles? Heard a lot of talk from the guys without seeing anything. I know its new and a huge space to cover. I wish drones could be steady in that wind, give it 2 y...

Re: Video - Kiter Dragged Through Rocks

First of all yes I have had 2 kitemares. Direct onshore wind, gusting. riding close to shore with obstacles upwind. Obstacles are not 50m downwind and approaching. :?: This is a classic case of complacency with a guy kiting for 1-2 years :?: :?: .Thank any god he's OK. Too close, dont get cocky. tur...

Re: Virgin Kitesurf World Championships becomes World Kite T

WTF.... This is corporate madness at it's best. Kite tours all over the northern hemisphere. "North World Championships" mabe sponsored by "North"???? So lets get some little 5'2-5'6 gyymnasts ride in 12-15 knots of wind and see what they can do? Is it for the masses? This is exactly what happened i...

Re: Making a directional for light wind waves.

Making a directional for light wind waves.

Ive always liked riding PU surfboards but they give out. Epoxy you go shorter yet the stiffness in a hard turn due to no flex gives you little flow unless you are on the perfect board for conditions.

Re: Looking for a good used kite to learn kiteloops

Tried lots. Windrange, loops easily, good bar 20m lines, RPM 8-9m. 2010's onwards are pretty cheap. RPM's in these sizes are perfect to learn kiteloops on.
