Hey folks.

But still, looking for a new bar. Have checked 2014 one recently a...

Re: Zanzibar or Sri lanka in July/August

ChickenTikka , take it easy, don't be so categorical. It's possible to manage it all by your own, and it'll be much cheaper. I know people who got to a camp by local buses cause 60 Euro each way for taxi from camp is to much. Of course it took half a day to get into a camp but it was some kind of a...

Re: Zanzibar or Sri lanka in July/August

Thanks for the info. I'm looking for some cheap places to stay. Are there any around this spots? You can rent a house from locals, price will be like $8-10. You can contact guys from camps for a help or do it by your own when arrive. IMHO, kite kuda lagoon will be more suitable in your case, there'...

Kalpitiya which is in NW province of Sri Lanka.
There are two kite camps with flat lagoons in that region: KiteKuda and KSL. I've stayed at the last one.
As it's a time of SW monsoon all the West and South coasts should work

I'm just back from Sri Lanka. The place is awesome. Wind blows non-stop, sun shines, you should try it.

Re: 2012 Naish Torch 10m

Oh, just tried it with 2012 bar - love that kite! So stable, can't manage to fly it behind a head. 2012 bar has shorter depower, i think the issues come out here

Re: 2012 Naish Torch 10m

What i saw on different beach is that the Torch has a tendency to bakstall if you do a mistake when jumping....and some time the 5th line roll around the kite ! Are you mean send jumps? It happens when you act wrong with your board while release the water. However it's very friendly and forgiving u...

Right. Will wait for 10m weather to try it with new 2012 bar. BTW, 7m 2011 Torch with that bar (2011 as well) doesn't have those issues.

Re: 2012 Naish Torch 10m

I wasn't about relaunch, it's always easy with 5 line setup. I was about starting from the water, when a kite is in the air and i'm sitting in the water

2012 Naish Torch 10m

Hey guys, I've tried friend's 10m Torch and I love its unhooked performance. The only thing stopping me to consider these kites for myself is the behavior in simple situations. The kite managed to fly behind the head when it was at 12 and fell down between lines. I'd say it's ok if wind was gusty. B...
