Re: Important Message: I almost died - Gunnar Biniasch

Hmmmm the stuff of nightmares. I think Gunnar is potentially wrong in one regard. I doubt anyone saw his crash or noticed that he was down. It's probably more of an issue on a very crowded beach. Unless you are openly looking for down kites to check and then watch the downed kite for a period of mi...

Re: Important Message: I almost died - Gunnar Biniasch

I have spent over 25 years working as a commercial fisherman, which has allowed me to develop an awareness that most kite boarders just dont have. I make it a point to not expect anything from them. I suspect that I have learned to be more aware of others on the water, not only due to the water time...

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

I have a BroKite 135 Hybrid. It is a carbon fiber board that is just fun to ride. Nice turns and a smooth ride. I have no interest in looking further.

Re: WOO 3: Who has received it ? You Order date ?

Perhaps they gave some preference to previous WOO owners that preordered via the email offer (maybe even WOO1 owners over WOO2 owners??) over those that ordered through the website offer?? So, are you a Woo1 owner? Woo2 owner? Got the email offer? Or gone through the website? Or maybe it's just the...

Re: Please help: stop the ban in Miami Beach

This is not practical in warm water beach locations as they are often crowded to the point of there being 1-20 people in ever 50ft square. Of course it is not always practical to maintain even a 50Ft buffer while getting on and off the beach, but the rule implies that all a rider needs to do is mai...

Re: Please help: stop the ban in Miami Beach

50 feet is actually the IKO recommended distance funny enough. Interesting... I am surprised that 50 ft is the standard. I kite in Washington and Oregon. Most places AFAIK it is recommended to be at least a kite line length away. All that is needed is for a kite and lines to fall on a swimmer and t...

Re: Please help: stop the ban in Miami Beach

50 feet from swimmers assumes that nothing will happen. If you get a 50 foot rule, you will be right back here defending another ban.

Kite boarders should be more than their line lengths away from swimmers at a minimum

Re: Ride Engine 2018 Harnesses

My intention for having a line run from hip to hip was to find out how much range you would use if you had much more than the typical spreader bar with a sliding line. My experience told my that you don't really need more sliding range than a Dynabar or similar allows. That's against my experience....
