Re: Drysuit or wetsuit if you anticipate a swim?!

Swimming back in a drysuit suckkkkkkks. Neoprene is actually easier to swim than just a speedo because of the type of flotation and it's streamlined, but a drysuit is such a terrible shape, creates a lot of drag. If you are a ways out, just pace yourself. You can't go fast in a drysuit just take you...

Re: Rebel with low V bar?

You need a tensioned 5th line for the Rebel to fly correctly. You can use a 5 line bar or the North bars with the high Y. In my experience the Y split that you get from North makes them fly the best, but as long as your 5th line is tensioned it will fly ok. Now you can use a low V bar, as long as it...

Re: How do KBs keep from drowning when they wear boots

I don't see the guys on the tour switching back to straps. You have to practice in straps if you want to be good in them for red bull king of the air, then you have to also practice in boots for the WKL. There's no free lunch it would take away time from them practicing their wakestyle tricks (have ...

Re: World Kiteboarding League - Introducing our 2017 World Champions

You can't expect to start the competition on a registration day. But, they could have started at 8:00 on first day instead of 12:30....lost a lot of time there...since we knew the forecast and it is normally correct...but still, they would not have been able to finish it. tks Toby. I was curious ho...

Re: What about kiting in the olympics?

Tks graeme. So what you're saying is they need us because sailing is boring and kiting is sexy. I guess we have no choice in the matter.

Re: How do KBs keep from drowning when they wear boots

If I'm in the water with boots I swim so I don't drown. if you can't swim I don't know what you would do. not sure why you would kiteboard if you can't swim. seems scary.

Re: What about kiting in the olympics?

megaloop one design now I've heard everything. I wouldn't want that to be honest, as it would be so dangerous if kiters couldn't adjust their quiver and boards according to their weight and wind speed. Of course you could adjust your quiver and board size. One design in kiting won't be like windsur...

Re: World Kiteboarding League - Introducing our 2017 World Champions

So wait a second. I heard there was no wind yesterday so they couldn't do the final heats for Duro Beach. Is that right? Seems a shame because they could have run the first heats on registration day which had plenty of wind, instead of waiting and getting skunked. So the heats they did get in for br...
