most durable 2mm gloves

I used to wear thick gloves back when i was using a wetsuit down around 1-5c (33-40F) but now that I have a drysuit I'm using 2mm gloves as my core is so much warmer, the problem is find a neoprene glove that lasts more than 2 sessions. got brand new 2mm gloves and wore straight through them in one ...

Re: Extreme Kitesurf Accidents

The one immediately followings Toby's, right about the 2:10 mark...who would you say is at fault? To me, the upwind rider (the one wearing the camera) is at fault. His kite should have been much higher, high enough for the other guy to pass under. the both kooked it up. the high downwind kept his k...

Re: Which Kites and lines lenght are most people using for 30 to 50 knots

50 knots is too much. I'm not sure how you can even boost in that kind of wind with a 2 or 3 meter. I mean I've seen it happen before but those landings are brutal. 40 knots is ok. You can ride a 5-7 meter kite and not come down like a sack of rocks. Use whatever line lengths you are used to. You do...

Re: Anton's tips on surviving a squall.

In waiting to find out if it is too strong, it is very easy to wait too long to act in the seconds it can take to build . . . we usually have no idea how strong it might be in advance. So, act early while you still can. . . act early before dangerous gusty winds arrive and pull the plug. Great advi...

Re: Pansh Genesis and some tuning

My genesis is pretty new so I think it has the new bridle. Slow as a dog! Ps folholio if you feel like demo-ing it let me know I can ship it to you and you can ship it back after trying it.
