Re: Are Pulley bridles more tolerant to stretch/shrink?

reo.JPG My understanding may be wrong and I welcome you to correct it. I paste the bridle of Reo as an example of a non pulley kite. 1) For pulley less kites only one of the A1,A2,A3,A4 carries the load of the front lines (the rest have a very small load that just keeps the shape of the kite) A1 (a...

..... Go as fast as you dare, then try to go faster again. So much of hydrofoiling is being able to handle speed and control it.
Go as fast as you can, then accelerate ... 8)

Re: Boosting only one way

I always jump to one side, mainly because of wind and wave ramps direction match my strong right side. But once a friend was getting into my path inadvertently so I jumped suddenly to the left (weak side) to avoid the imminent collision. Back at sore, the "wise" guy approaches me with a shame apolog...

Re: Trying to understand kite quiver

Get a 7 now, to go with your 12 - and then later you will definitely buy a 9 also, the "best" size for everything, and you will find out you need it if you got different winds.

Re: Video of Ram Air Inversion Disaster

Respect to the guy that dared to surf under such no wind conditions.
Perhaps with an hydrofoil he'll be more successful.

Kitesurfing not included in Youth Olympic Games Oct 2018?

I looked into the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Argentinean site link for kiteboarding, but it is not mentioned.
Did they take away kitesurfing? Was it ever included?

Just wondering about the odds of kitesurfing being included among the Olympic sports :roll:
