Re: 2 people dead after kite accident in Tarifa

I don't think it's that they we're unwilling to punch out, they did and were so tangled in the lines it didn't help them.

Re: Kites for teaching

Airush DNA's are the best kites I've ever used for teaching on, simple, stable, easy relaunch and no backstall/front stall issues...and they work equally well on 3 or 25 m lines

Re: How much do kites cost to manufacture?

Looking at models like Switch, there's obviously a lot of money in the supply chain. I've asked several high up reps at various kite companies about this and none of them are concerned or considering changing their model as online sales still account for only a fraction of total sales, people still ...

Re: Kite is gaining power as it ages!

Can you see a slight 'bag' right behind the leading edge, it's usually easier for someone to see this as it's difficult to spot when your flying it

Re: Where to go in September (France, Spain..)

Agreed still warm, windy and now a lot less busy in Tarifa. I run a school out there (so am obviously highly biased) but if your interested check us out at http://www.TantrumKitesurf.com. Whatever you decide there are loads of great schools out here so you should find something to suit!

Re: In Tarifa for a month

Have a sneaky suspicion there will be wind on the Sunday....have you checked out the feria? Make sure you're well tanked up before you go but it's a lot of fun. Apart from that there's climbing, mountain biking, land sailing, horse riding, quad biking, wake boarding just down the coast.

Could you lay the kite out and measure the difference between the front and rear bridles, that should give you the difference between the front and back lines? Let me know if you haven't solved this as I had a friend who had a Bandit dos so I can ask her.

Re: Europe in Sept

Tarifa should be windy then and the crowds have gone...if you can hold off booking flights it'll allow you to check the forecast before you commit, 4 days isnt really enough to guarantee wind anywhere in Europe in sept.
