Re: how long is too long?!

I think the best answer is just go try it. People are always asking in this forum about what's the "right" line length. Wouldn't it suck if you took the advice of some random here on the forum who told you "such and such length is the longest never go above it" and only figured out years later that ...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

The best thing would be the olympic youth program for young kiters that we would have as nations would encourage young promising athletes who might otherwise go into some other sport to...

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

border cross is silly, kite racing is boring, wakestyle has niche interest. There's no way to really show off kiteboarding in the olympics because like surfing we are condition dependent. The best most exciting most watched event of the year is by far the red bull king of the air competition and you...

rainx sucks for gorpros, turtle wax is better

So I went out and bought another bottle of rainx just to give it one more try it was awful. I went back online and watched reviews about how rainx actually works, and apparently it doesn't just bead off the water with hydrophobic action, actually it turns large droplets into little ones and then the...

Re: Hard Wearing Low Stretch Lines

Aside from the considerable extra cost vs buying a spool, is there anything wrong with buying the Q-Power Pro lines finished off with a sewn loop on each end? https://kiteboarding.com/proddetail.asp?prod=q-powerline_pro_lineset If they last for many years I could justify the premium cost. For refer...

Re: Kiteboarding is officially sailing, gets its own medal for Paris 2024

Actually any twin tip can be used, that particular one has been very successful in the Asian countries that have held trials/sending athletes Long water line narrow with flip tips makes sense if your trying to go fast in chop especially if the wind is light Ah that's interesting.
