Strapless surfkite board fins

This is mainly for strappless riding. What is your favorite fins setup/types of fins? Quads, Thruster, stiff carbon fins , 3d fins, 5fins, twins,foil fins (ala Futures elevon), no fins,etc... For perfect glassy conditions with head-high waves, strong wind, I prefer thrusters. The rest of the time, q...

Re: Scoring of tricks in GKA air games?

Don’t think Lou Wainman needed comps to push the sport forward.

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

Lets not forget some companies like Switch makes descent bar and kites at a good price brand new. Great bridge for young riders until they can make some good money. Still counting everything 1000–2000 is necessary... I dont mind boards being expensive. They last. Ridden hard, Kites dont last a two s...

Re: North & Duotone - Your Questions Answered by CEO Till Eberle

Working in graphics and web design...this name feels incredibly out of place to use for a water sports brand.

Re: Wash or not wash your kites

Like everyone says. Never wash but proper drying is important. Especially from fresh water. I am very careful to dry right away after it rains and never pack a wet kite. Speaking of kite wear. Biggest wear that people do not realize is getting sand into your pump hose and plugging that in your kite....

Re: Are The Olympics Good For Kiteboarding

Olympics should be like in ancient Greece. All sports done almost naked, in celebration of the human body and its wide range of abilities. Id watch that.
Noways its a consumer sponsoring money fest for elitists and nationalists and you get a reward.

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Carbon credit gimmick doesn't matter. What matters is drastic lifestyle changes, sustainable development, free high technology sharing and its early education for all humans. Wealth shouldn't equal to happiness but it still inevitably does. At this pace of population growth/development and GDP centr...

Re: On-shore vs Off-shore wave kite

From personal experience for onshore wind, a quick reacting light kite is top with good upwind power. As for upwind:Is it just me or a super good upwind kite is necessary for onshore waves? You get pushed down constantly and being able to ride super upwind helps so much in positioning, and the numbe...

Re: Fastest Turning Surf Kite?

Reo is great in sideshore, side-off wind. Drifts beautifully. A bit twitchy in very strong wind. Upwind can be a pain if its not blowing steady and strong. Not much float for strapless jumps. Loops faster than you blink. If you only ride on-shore in gusty 12~20knot wind, dont get a REO: power shuts ...
