Re: Where is good spot to learn wave kitesurfing?

You can also train a proper frontside carve on your twin tip on flat water. For training on land get a surfskate skateboard. From my opinion it helps a lot for systemically training compression and body rotation for the carves. It can be a nice work out for your legs and is good fun in itself. There...

Re: Where is good spot to learn wave kitesurfing?

For video tutorials I think the Progression series is pretty good (carving turns and wave technique). It´s not for free but does not cost the world.

Re: Naish Monarch 2017 size

I would suggest the 132. I have your weight and rode the 2016 and 2017 Monarch in that size. Rode it with 11m downwards, 16 knots no problems. (This season I ride the Motion also in 41cm width). Have a look at the Monarch 2018 review by REAL on YouTube. He says it rides bigger than its nominal size ...

Re: Azores, Guincho In Early July

Wind in Summer in Portugal is called Nortada. It blows from the Northwest and is the starting point of the trade wind system which also blows on the Canary Islands. Generally it is a light breeze all along the coast but gets accelerated by mountains and thermal effects especially in Guincho and I th...

Re: Azores, Guincho In Early July

Early July is top season for Guincho, but there is no 100% guarantee if there is wind for a couple of days. Conditions can range from mellow to nuking, choppy to 2-4m waves. If it is too rough you can go to Costa Caparica. If there is no wind go surfing. Bring a 3/2 or 4/3 full suit, water is cold.

Re: Follow the Wind in north-west Europe.

In Germany it will be both, locals and visitors as holiday season starts. Northwest coast of Germany (North of Hamburg), St. Peter Ording is the main spot. Sylt is more beautiful and gives you more options concerning wind direction and there will be a lot less people on the water. On the Baltic Sea ...

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

I hope to something like ION KITEBOARDING or TRUE KITEBOARDING , that’s the best way i think and for sure sounds better than DUOTONE :angryfire: I agree with that. :thumb: +1. From a marketing perspective I would use a brand out of the portfolio which already has equity. For me ION would be the clo...
