Re: Airline Pilots, Kiteboard on Layovers?

A couple of foil kites and a split board plus a harness that will fold flat and you have a nice travel setup that will fit easily in a duffel bag.

Niceee.

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

Very cool, nice to see another manufacturer appreciating an innovative design and licensing it instead of copying it. :thumb: I know BWS always appreciated a simple bar with no extra bits to distract in the surf, so this seems like a great fit being that it's such a clean looking bar. (no trim stra...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Tautologies is probably right... But, there are mainly two 'kinds' of waves being ridden in, and they are quite different. There are the well spaced, smooth ocean waves that are generated miles away, roll in, and are somewhat independent of the local winds. Then there are storm waves (like you get o...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

So, for those playing in the waves in onshore winds (Like the Great Lakes), those marketed "Wave" kites might not be the best. Something fast turning and workable, with excellent upwind is more desirable.

everyone should be allowed to kitesurf no matter where you are from or who you are. Maybe if Hitler had kitesurfed he wouldn't have been so angry.
I thought Hitler did.

Re: Foil kite drift launch tips and trick needed.

Also, it gets more hectic as the wind get stronger as everything happens way faster. Always have a plan B! In the first video, you can sense a touch of 'rush' as the kite starts to load up a bit and he is having some difficulty quickly getting the lines off the bar. You wouldn't want to have your sa...

Re: Foil kite drift launch tips and trick needed.

The kite will sometime have a bit of water in it. That is OK. If there is a far bit, as the kite picks up enough air to want to fly, the water may all run to one corner. Then, if you let the kite go it may just rotate around the water filled tip and end up nose down on the water. What to do is pull ...
