Re: Best kites for traveling?

Well that's what I'm getting at, it needs to be for a mix of destinations and therefore styles. Some will be flat water some waves, but nothing massive.
So general freeride kit. There's got to be compromises in there, so what do you sacrifice?

Best kites for traveling?

Over the next few years I plan on doing more traveling with my kit, but want to keep things small and light. A split board will be a must. I already own a 17m strutless kite that packs real small, but was thinking about other kites. Obvious options are strutless, one strut, or foil kite? I'd like to...

Re: RRD Obsession with different bar?

I am now flying all my RRD's (from 2012 on) on the global V7 bar which has chanced to low split and single line flag, all work fine with no difference in flight characteristics. The only difference I've noticed is that it feels harder to pull depower on when I need to. So they seem to work fine on a...

What benefits would a new board give me?

Since learning I have been riding a Flexifoil anarchist 135x40 board. It serves me fine, has nice flex to soften landings and is, I feel, a good size for me. Whilst on holiday I rode a current model North board, the X ride I think. I thought I would notice a difference straight away between a modern...

Is the Alvor lagoon deep enough to foil?
No, most is about 1m deep except the channel. Plus there's a clam farm as well with metal cages just below the surface.

Re: retiring in Portugal to kite

Don't be twat. I was having an advanced lesson, so had no choice of location. I can cope fine with crowds, just giving my opinion on a spot. I know not to bother next time.

Re: retiring in Portugal to kite

I'm in Lagos right now and had the chance to ride on the lagoon a few days ago. My home spot is Cornwall in the UK and I'm blessed with beaches that work from SE to NE. Only real sketchy wind is an easterly. Here's my thoughts on Alvor. Wind was NW offshore, super gusty blowing from about 12 kts to ...

Re: Gin Kiteboarding presents the Eco-Board 100% Swiss made and eco-responsible

There's nothing new in there. Linen/ cotton has been a viable alternative for years.
And since when can walnut be sustainably harvest?

Re: New foil from Ozone

Dealers have had info and can pre order. I've been told the 12 is cheaper than a Zephyr.
