Re: 7 days of Levante in Tarifa - fake news?

when it says 30, expect 40-50 or more, you will have to move to other spots where it is lighter probably

Re: Question for Switchblade Owners – 14M vs 12M

Same, sell the 14m, that kite is only for big people. You need a 12m and then a 15m contra for light stuff, 15 contra has really a much better low end than the 14m switchblade, is faster and relaunches easier in light winds

Re: Dying after board start

Extend your arms when you lift off the water. This prevents from leaning back.
Extend your front foot in the direction the kite is sinking, this will direct the board downwind.
Weight must be on the back foot but with the front leg extended

cheers

Re: My progression, some help needed please

I saw that in a video and it worked well for me. When speed is higher i have to put even more pressure in the front, is tiring after some times, is...
