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.

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:

wind range and kite size for heavy weight

I was asked to recommend a kite (type and size) to a guy that weights 100kg.
I would appreciate recommendations for kite size, type (C, Bow, Delta,...) and practical wind range from members that have similar weight.

Thanks
