Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

Yeah, I may have missed your point that you wanted to fly down, thought you were talking about getting down fast and fun

Re: Advice for hill ascents/descents

Down hill gets weird, most of the fun I have snowkiting is uphill because you're using force of the kite against the force of gravity, making it fun to fly the kite actively and use lots of power. Downhill it's the opposite, kite and gravity are working together, plus the general fun of dropping som...

Re: Why is everyone hating on old kites ?

All the stuff sharky says is true, but also kiters have a different relationship with their gear than you would with a snowboard. The time that you spend kiting in good conditions is super precious. Even if you are living somewhere that can provide good riding every day, day after day, you will want...

Re: Poll: Underpowered or Overpowered

Things are getting snippy here, definitions are kind of fuzzy. Some people enjoy being lit to extents that most would be considered overpowered, to me overpowered exactly equals no fun for the style I want to ride. Matteo is definitely onto something when he points out that most intermediate riders ...

Re: Pigmenting epoxy

I've used the mixol brand tints on some art projects, the colors are so condensed that you couldn't imagine them changing the strength. Like two or three drops to color six oz.

Re: Shoulders Forward?

I don't know what the tindy spot is but that's the key. You almost have to use that foot to put direct vertical or even tugging force on that spot to squirt the foil out forward of you, then the front of the board will automatically swing to meet your other foot. And the crowd goes wild! Wait, no cr...

Re: Shoulders Forward?

Hey Starsky, I wouldn't reply if I didn't think we aren't generally on the same page regarding fun vs showmanship, what drives long term sustainable stoke etc., so this is really just fine tuning but I like your style so I'll toss this out there. The opportunities around strapless riding include get...

Re: Shoulders Forward?

Re: shoulders forward..... Sorry, just cant dig it. like sitting or lying down on your foil. Novelty at best. Narrowing your base decreases agility. For any kind of dynamic carving, riding swell.... sideways stance is where its at! Can't say I agree about the novelty aspect, I do it all the time on...

Re: Referral for a good beginner kite instructor for the Bay Area

Track down Inanc Ino, he's a facebook user so available that way. Not sure what shop he's affiliated with down there but I think he's lined up with one or two plus kite camps etc. He's got a background as a gymnastics instructor so good with youngsters. He's not a take the money and run guy, has his...
