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...

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.

Re: What about kiting in the olympics?

The olympics should grow out of a grass roots support for a sport, so for instance, basketball, soccer, running swimming. Getting an olympic medal in one of those sports is something to be proud of. On the other hand artificial sports created just for the olympics are silly and the world wouldn't ch...

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

There's shallow spots, seaweed stuff like that. Of course, now that I foil I think every SUP should have a mounting plate to put a foil on it but you can't always use it.

EDT,
Where is vid from?
youtube mix, I won't list the various clips, just too many but they include those nutters out west from skyline, lots of russians, frenchies, and the big race is of course the norwegians at ragnorak.

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

Ittiandro, well 6 months is such a long time to wait. Even if you get instructions later, I still think it's worth it to buy the beginner instructions from Progression: http://www.progression.me/player/collections/1 I have no affiliation from them, they are just great instructional videos. They used...

Re: True C kites 14 meters

C kites are best between 7m and 13m in size. Larger C kites tend to be slow, don't boost high and don't have as good upwind characteristics. Smaller C kites are the nicest. Get a 14 RPM instead that's my suggestion.

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

EDT I don't have a SUP, but a Windsup. Maybe this can make a difference. It is an 11 ft long Bic Windsup , which I fitted with a longer fin to replace the standard Dolphin fin which was useless. I can easily bank on the rails to control it and it also has a centerboard which helps to go upwind. So ...

Re: Balance question - before I get my drill out....

Unless I'm mistaken I see two mast mounts already drilled and you put your mast in the wrong mast holes they need to be in the other set near the front. looks like there are 6 mast holes drilled so you can move the mast back where you have it or took the front holes where it should be

Re: best SUP for super light wind kiting

those 100cm wide raceboards are such dogs in chop, they nearly shake your legs off. Not fun! They are made to go fast if you aren't allowed to use a hydrofoil in a race not for comfort.
