Re: Boracay set to reopen. But did they ban kitesurfing?

Yes, all normal ! E-jeepney? I hope they banned all these noisy and stinky trikes (forgot their names). Several local kite business owners already suggested many years ago to make all vehicles E on the island...mayor didn’t listen...hope that changed now. It got really annoying and bad for health an...

Re: King of the Air 2019 - all info here - riders confirmed

In one topic we're talking about danger of extreme conditions and about not risking you life for a show, and in another we praise those who do and who set bad examples to those dying in category 1. Bad landing from 20m height is not much different from riding wild in 45 knots. Again: for average Jo...

Happy Carlos Mario is in...he has a high chance of winning.
I dunno, he looks like he only weighs about 55 kg, he might get blown off the beach!
And that’s the idea of KOTA 😉

Re: Fatality in France

Very good.
The launcher has to be as cautious as the rider...or even more.

So many times I stopped people from launching due to a wrong setup...while they already gave the thumb up...

Be cautious and care for the other 👍🏻

I recall something...but not sure if it happened already or is still planned.

Anyway, the Air Games tour was happening this year, including girls.

It’s a great line up...big names and awesome riders.
New and younger riders first need to get a name...like Carlos Mario.

Look at Formula 1...no young talent gets in immediately...Cart, F3, F2 etc before you can drive in F1.

And that’s what KOTA is...F1

Re: Fatality in France

I remember back then in 2000 when I saw Robby first time at a beach setting up his kite...I offered to help (did my first kump that day). He refused and said he prefers to self launch...back then barely anyone knew what it is and how it works...so I fully understand. Guess might be sometimes better ...
