Re: What is kitesurfing for you? This it is for me

I have to admit. I am somewhat jelious of the Peter pan life style . But I wonder if I would actually be as fulfilled as what am now?. Yes I could decadently indulge in my passions. But at the end of the day I would come home to an empty house. I think I would be lonely, I would miss out on the love...

Re: Using bodyboard with stringers?

I was going to. But it would have taken more effort than laminating some bamboo i had lying around.

Re: Foil - wave riding

I don't expect you to get into the impact zone. But if you're managed to get behind the line, there's got to be miles and miles of rolling ocean swell. That's the stuff I want to ride, not the breaking waves. That there is! I have had a number of sweet sessions in well over head high rolling swell....

Re: 24 hr epoxy cured in 1 hr

Also, a more hardener than recommended can decrease cure time. Not sure if that's recommended. Epoxy cross-links, so excess hardener doesn't get used, which is why it's recommended to be very precise with the ratios. Polyester systems however has an activator, and the amount of activator can speed ...

Re: Foil - wave riding

Foiling with a kite on waves!..... I go the other way and embrace the kite in the waves, i loop it and wang it around. Sure its f...

Re: Help a student out and load up your Karma account

Please share the results and conclusions. Too often we go out of our way to fill in a survey but the "student" never goes out of their way to respond back with their findings.
PS Q6 whats the most important factor in buying gear didnt have an option for performance.... bit of a gap in the question.

Re: Ozone Edge for beginners

No dont get a 19m edge and attempt to learn in 9 knots. You will just end up swimming. Plus if the wind pulls up to 15-20 knots you will be punnish.
Be patient and wait for 15 knots. Below that is a waste of time while learning unless you just want to body drag around.
