Re: Is my instructor bias regarding buying gear?

It looks like you 're in the warmer area's of the world.

a 9m LEI will work if you're going to hydrofoil.. no way with a TT.
One kite (12m) which will work: Consider a FS Soul 12m..

Re: Hurricane Florence and Dimitri Maramenides

Dimitri IS real. I don't own an Epic kite nor I'm a fan or promoter (never had the chance to test one here in Italy) but I think Dimitri is a very positive guy who works passionately for his business, I can't understand why he is criticized every time he shows his kites and boards.

Re: Need help duck jybing exit planing

I have no clue why you call it a duck jybe.. only know duck jybe from my windsurfing time..
the answer is in your description.. 1. don't redirect normal, do it more agressive. 2. more speed.

Re: Doors instead of foil for summer days?

Deep water: go foiling.
Shallow: try a Skim.. so much more fun than a Door Type board.

Re: Packing up a foil kite with wet bar

Here is what I always do (again):
Flat kite, put the briddle on the kite, wind up your lines so that You leave some lines out in the middle and put there your bar.
Fold kite, tip on tip, roll up. Fold in half or in 1/3’s
Voilà bar outside your kite, leave it outside the bag till its dry.
