Re: Kitesurfing New Zealand north island round christmas

Why do you think Auckland is average? There would be nowhere else on earth you can kite on 2 very different oceans 50 mins drive apart.. the Pacific And the Tasman. This is true. There are better west coast beaches than muriwai and better estuaries and flat water locations than East coast Auckland ...

Re: Kitesurfing New Zealand north island round christmas

Auckland has one advantage. You can kite 360 deg wind angle. Other than that it's pretty average as far as the kiting is concerned.

Re: How To Self-Land a Kite in High Winds

That video is bullshit and unsafe and not recommended for high wind. Any learners watching this. This is a dangerous method to land. Don't copy it. I suspect that this kiter has only ever kited in moderate winds and hasn't had to land it crazy conditions before. A lot of what he does is just plane w...

Re: Question for Toby

I've thought about this before. Some threads are ruined by arguments between members. It drowns out the intention the thread and kills it. A recent example is the 3d printed plastic parts thread. http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2398257&p=999120. That was an interesting discussion and market...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

Interesting thoughts. My take is a little different. Yaw control to me Is very similar to other sports as far as i'm concerned. What is different is the weight distribution and height control. I lean in and "yaw" every time I turn my mountain bike. The technique is different. The balance point is di...

Re: Ozone Uno for young, light weight rider?

I have a 4m uno. Yep it will work no worries. I use it one the hydrofoil and stupid high wind on the mutant. At 78kg bottom end for me on the foil is around 18 knots. But I don't see why a light person couldn't take it a lot lower. It flys fine in lighter winds. Its actually got some performance too...

Re: Jumping with a smaller kite 7m Bandit 2016

Hold the kite back longer and wait later before flying it above your head and do a last second dive in front of you. You need to be precise with a small kite and slow your decent with carefully time dive forward or downloop.

Re: carving to toe

One more ditty of advice. Keep the foil low to start with. Then when you can low level foil carve around take it higher.
