Re: Whats a good used kite to learn kiteloops on?

Depends on local condition and wind, If you plan on learning on 9m, definitely get a C kite with fifth line, like Torch, GP. I guess Vegas, Fuel (if not gusty), Chaos. C4 seems to get good review too. haven't tried RPM and others. Wind for 9m and speed of kite make it quite essential for kite to ca...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!

Come on dude. Don’t hate on wakestylers. Don’t be that guy. Personally, I will never be a wakestyler because I have prior injuries that make it too risky. I’d like to play with my kid in a few years time but I have the greatest of respect for the athleticism and skill it requires. I don’t feel like...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!

While I don’t know Nick personally, I see him often *wakestyling* at local beaches here in CPH. Pretty sure he would tell you to grab a tissue. Kevin probably would too. Just guessing. Thanks for reviving this - undoubtedly - fun thread! :thumb: The point of my post wasn't about what Nick and Kevin...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

Yeah, that's it. Every single kite company should stop advertising wakestyle and advertise something else all because of you. The kite industry should evolve around alex, because he doesn't like the way the ads look. Your prissy attitude makes me believe you were pampered as a child... Hey, whateve...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

But to me it just sounds like you don't like it and want kite companies to advertise whatever style of riding you want, because you must think that everyone should have your taste in kiteboarding. No man, we don't... I could throw the same ball in your direction, just because you like wakestyle - d...

Re: Learning on Cabrinha FX?

I don't know about UK, but in North America Chaose-es are going for silly prices and these a surprisingly great all-around kites despite what they are marketed for. Smooth and forgiving with very friendly power delivery, have a buddy who picked up a few in different sizes and having tested them - I ...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

Anyway, all bullshit set aside, I think the reason why wakestyle is featured everywhere is because it is the most extreme form of kiting there is. When you see an ad, do you want to see someone killing it in the air being upsidedown with the handle behind them? Or would you rather see someone stand...

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

Well, this thread wend exactly where it usually goes around here - only a handful of people really take the time to read what's written, everybody else are just seeing what they want to see and massaging their egos. Hey, the beauty of this sport is that you're free to do anything you want - whatever...
