Re: Free kitesurfing is no longer “free” to Greece - banned!

It brought out a law that practically banns kiting from 99,9% of Greek beaches, unless the certain beach complies with a huge list of requirements, unrealistic requirements to kiters! whoever wrote the list has in my view no experience of any water sports ,let alone kiting.

Re: kite line strenght?

Normally 3x body weight mimimum for all lines.
or just use 300kg lines

or check manufactures website for the kite you want them for and use same line strength as is supplied with the kite. For normal use there is no need to increase line strength.

Re: What is the best 1 board quiver?

What board has the best characteristics to make it a board for most conditions- early planning and light wind capable, but will still handle nuked conditions. Also good in both flat water and heavy chop. for me its my F-One Trax 135x41 @ 80kg it works from 12 - 35knts low wind - with my 11m Bandit ...
