Re: Is unhooked riding useful or waste of time?

OR
you can put on a chicken suit and go for big air ballerina spins.

that will certainly outperform (meaning beach crowd staring at you) any unhooked powered move.

Re: Wondering about so many Tricks and Moves Postings?

i vote we call it a flippity flip flop. and if you take your board off, call it a boardy.

that way people don't confuse kiting with the dangerous anti safety wake/skate boarding. :baby:

Re: will line pop with knot?

better question: has anyone's line snapped because it had a knot?
i've kited for years with a knot and never snapped. (kiteloops, unhooked, jumps, etc)
and i've also had lines snapped with/without knots.

i wouldn't worry too much about, if you can get the knot, do it, if not don't worry.

Re: where'd Fo go??

I KNOW it's a dangerous sport, we all do. I don't care for some kook writing 3000+ words explaining how/why/when you should wear a helmet, an impact vest, and carry emergency flares in a sport that involves hanging from a KITE at 20+ knots wind on a surfboard (getting "big air",etc) the same way i d...
