Re: The World's Fastest Kite. Period

Nevermind the kite what about the t-shirt?

That is one amazingly fast t-shirt he has on over his wetsuit. If I had a t-shirt like that I could go really, really, really fast.

Anyone know who makes Rob's t-shirts? And do they do a big air version?

Re: fatality in france

One of the problems with kiteboarding, that will never be solved, is that the rider is usually riding and facing downwind (riding toeside is about the only exception), and therefore the indicators of radical changes in the windspeed like cloud-lines, blowing spray, cats-paws, squall-lines...all SNE...

Re: Fatality in NE Brazil

I've always thought that those retention posts were an accident waiting to happen at Guajiru. They were lucky previously that of the many people that crashed their kites into the infamous (and now removed) power lines no one was killed. Whilst that launch area is not the safest at high tide etc the ...

Re: Dutch Martinair closes down

Not exactly correct.

Martinair will not be closing down, after the sale to KLM it is to become exclusively air cargo as of the end of 2011.

This means you can still enjoy your cheap flights for at least one more full year, so book now!

Re: How important is sheeting out in a kiteloop?

Yeah. :-? The whole point of a "kiteloop" is that it is a violent, high adrenalin, high impact maneuver. You will subsequently probably "eat shit" on a regular basis when learning big kiteloops. Sheeting out is kind of contrary to achieving the goal. Sheeting out is what pussies do. Remain sheeted i...

Re: Slingshot 2011

Surfboards look nice, is that the fast track system i see? ss surfboard 2011.jpg I've been saving up for an Aviso but this board looks so sweet I might just cave and get this instead. What really caught my eye though is the white boot/binding/surgical appliance in the background. What the hell is t...

Re: Shit happens. With BP this time...

Amoco has certainly learnt the lesson from their catastrophe. BP will too and change their safety policies accordingly to improve safety, there is no doubt about that, but the risk will never vanish. You obviously don't realise that Amaco and BP are the same company. I guess you didn't read my post...

Re: There are lies, damned lies and stat.. IKA press release

........ -patrick It's nice to have someone step forward and try to defend the whole IKA, Olympics situation, especially in a reasonable and mature fashion. I appreciate both your contribution and your courage at stepping into the lions den, especially as a pro-rider. But I'm afraid so much of what...

Re: There are lies, damned lies and stat.. IKA press release

Who cares if kiteboarding is part of the Olympics? Only a very limited few, and that is the problem. The rest of us are being dragged in a direction we either don't want or don't care about. If the grass roots of your sport is completely disenfranchised from it's governing body, competitions and fu...
