Re: How low can a Twintip go?

Hi, I am 75kg, I have a special TT (same looking as your door). I can start to ride with a 15sm tubekite in one strut a 9kts And I think I am at 8kts with a foilkite in 14sm. It starts to be fun at 11-12kts, some tricks, jump... I have a foil, and I think I use it only with smaller wind between 5-6k...

Re: Core kites and kiteboarding industry sales this year

For those who haven't yet read it, check out issue 70 of iksurfmag, where they have an industry-focused article. Apparently the following numbers are indicative of the market for 2017: Total number of kites sold : between 140,000 and 150,000 Total kites sold by Cabrinha : between 25,000 and 35,000 ...

Re: Important Message: I almost died - Gunnar Biniasch

Hi. Just a story I had 2 or 3 years ago. A good wave ridding session may be 1m or 1.5 m waves. A good wind more than 20kts... Everything good I am with my brother. We are riding at 100m of distance. In the waves you have to be focus on you ride, but I know that my brother is not so easy than I. So I...

Re: Flysurfer Speed 3 15m

Hi,

I have a 12sm Speed III. Result 10% power less than my other 12sm foil kite.

So I think that there is nothing to do with this.

Re: Snowkite Gliding - tell us why we are so stupid

Hi, It is not because you can fly with a kite, even if it works well, that it is done for this. Everybody have a chiken loop on a kite, nobody have this system in paragliding... Why? Because it is a good thing to be abble to let the kite go, and it is not a good thing to be abble to loose your glide...

Re: Snowkite Gliding - tell us why we are so stupid

Thanks Norbert for the insight. I asked myself the same thing: what would you consider for snow + gliding? To me if you want to glide with a snowkiteing, you will have to change: -The construction. the lien wil be in 6mm dyneama diameter and less longer -The way to drive :not on the bar but with ha...

Re: Snowkite Gliding - tell us why we are so stupid

Hi all, Sorry for my english and sorry I don't read all the posts before put my 2 cents. As I design Snowkite and bladder kite for Rapace and as I designed speedgliders for 4speed, I think I can give you 2 or 3 ideas on it. Why are you so stupide? I don't know if you are stupid or not, but here it w...

Re: Do kite designers make prototypes of every size kite?

And this, is one of the bigger problems IMO. I really wish the kite Co's would get away from the yearly model. Why put time constraints on yourself? How can you make real improvements and innovations on a 6 month timeline? I can't even recall how many times you hear people say "X kite was really go...
