Re: Beginner kites with the best safety systems?

Maybe some others can chime in on who still offers a 5th line option in addition to North. Almost all brands that have a true C kite offer a 5 line bar, sometimes it's just an option on the 4 line bar tho, and sometimes they don't offer the 5th line (I think Switch does it this way). You can use a ...

Re: UK kitesurfer rescued after lines wrap legs

Good job Robert! Remember guys, climb on top of your kite if you get tangled while you still have a little bit of mobility. Makes so much difference. Sometimes you forget to bring your knife, other times you drop it, lots can happen, as long as he came back safe, no fatality, it's all good in my boo...

Re: Poll: King of the Air 2018: Straps vs Boots?

I want to believe that whoever does the first in competition board off megaloop will win, but I"m thinking whoever goes highest and deepest on a megaloop front roll (or megaloop kgb) in boots will probably win because you can land hotter and harder in boots, a lot easier not to butt check on landing...

Re: Forearm Burn - What to do about it

Thanks for the replies. I agree with Dylan that technique is important, but it only gets me when conditions are really gusty and messy. I'm going to try out some windsurfing gloves from a mate (current gloves are 2mm so pretty thin). I've spent a few months on and off working out with the hand grip...

Re: Poll: King of the Air 2018: Straps vs Boots?

What about boots on a 'normal' board. Would that give speed and pop? That's how I ride. But there's a good chance you will break your board because it's not properly reinforced for boots. Nobody at the KOTA will ride this way. I wouldn't megaloop on a Pivot, seems dangerous because it doesn't climb...

Re: Poll: King of the Air 2018: Straps vs Boots?

I assume you can go higher with boots? Hold more power, load and pop higher? It also begs another question. C or SLE? My feeling is that you can usually go higher in straps the key point is that boards used by the pros with boots have too much rocker to go much above 20 knots board speed for instan...
