Re: What's the dumbest thing you have seen a newbie do?

Not kidding: Saw Teenagers with a trainer kite trying to launch the kite upwind from the pilot...
I informed them that perhaps they should get some basic idea first...
Still wouldn't go for lessons. Needles to say they never made it to a four line kite.

Re: Hand drags getting yanked

Hi, Try and loop later and a tighter loop, so that the kite doesn't travel too far in the window. Some kites don't loop tight so to counter that is to depower the kite slightly. Smaller kites travel faster and create more apparent wind and therefore have a spike of power as they travel through the w...

The Kiter and the Whale

So over the last few weeks in South Africa, we've been kiting with whales... and had some unbelievable sightings. Always hard to capture it. This time we got lucky during a video shoot and got this amazing photo ... After sending it to a few people and getting feedback like: It's photoshopped! I mad...

Peter Lynn Escape 11m taken in Sardinia (Italy)

To Kiters in Sardinia and Italy, After 36 hours I have to come to the conclusion that whoever took the 11m Escape v6 (2018) from the beach "Le Saline" near Olbia may not have had the intention of returning it to one of the local schools or shop... The last two guys on the beach (and apparently seen ...

Re: Peter Lynn Introduces the Escape V6

Having a blast in Sardinia on the bigger Escape v6 sizes (9m, 11m, 15m) So far have had some nice sessions with the 11 and 9. 11m has some good hang time for old school stuff and the 9m loops fast enough. Such a smooth ride! Canopy modifications just behind the leading edge have contributed to a sta...

Re: No freestyle on worlds biggest kite event

Sad state of affair in our sport.
Imagine being a kid who has put everything into getting into the world tour right now...
Sponsors are scratching their heads on where to put their efforts...
It's just a mess.
But perhaps it's just the nature of this sport. Not meant to be put in boxes.

Re: Willem van der Meij claims highest jump in the Netherlands

Regardless of the woo's accuracy, I know Willem and took pics of him at the last king of the air, and there is no doubt that he has the balls to go big! So his place in the top 10 woo jumps is well deserved.

Re: Peter Lynn Introduces the Escape V6

Wanted to see how the Escape v6 looped in strong winds... had some pretty crazy conditions on this particular day. I decided to go to a small lagoon to soften the landings and throw some loops. Got quite sketchy as the wind just went ballistic. The guy filming on the beach was battling to stand so t...
