Re: Windy Holiday destinations by month

I've been noticing a lot of topics regarding kite destinations. This topic has been off the grid for a while, but does anyone have any destinations to add to this list? I am planning a trip for March or April, so any added info would be great. January Western Oz, Cumbuco Brazil, cape town-South Afri...

Re: Blade's 5th Gen Trigger - A brand new profile shape

so, anybody cares to elaborate on "a brand new profile shape"? five full pages and no profile mentioning? how it is different from previous trigger? no wonder i have not seen a one blade kite at my place..... eree, I think 'Profile Shape' means a side view of the kite. Imagine slicing the kite from...

Re: Leash suggestions?

Hey man.

Stop making fun of board leashes. They are a cool accessory to my harness and make me look more hardcore... Haters will be haters.

Re: Blade's 5th Gen Trigger - A brand new profile shape

I am still stoked and smiling inside from last weeks session. Blade, you guys really pulled it all together and took it to the next level with the new Trigger. Here is some gopro footage from the session. I am using Stringy's board mount mod'd with a strap to attach to the center strut on the kite....

Re: narrow beach self launch

I found this video.
At first it might look a little dangerous, but if you always have one hand on one of the steering lines, than i think you're good to go.

Re: Remove kitesurfing from the Olympics

HAHAHA
Personally, I would like to see the industry grow, so I am for kitesurfing in the olympics.

Regardless, that was one of the funniest posts I have ever read.

Re: Blade's 5th Gen Trigger - A brand new profile shape

I did get to demo the new Trigger a couple months ago in Tenerife. Blade's R&D team were there making last minutes checks with Mark Shinn to make sure all the production kites were properly tuned and ready to be released. Although I know Mark Shinn and I met the Blade team, I have no affiliation wit...

Re: Elephant legs wetsuits

Check out the picture. I had a similar problem with my 4.3 Rip Curl Flash Bomb.

I ended up cutting the wetsuit halfway up my shin (right below the key zipper) and it works great now. In this picture the left leg looks like the wetsuit is already cut, but the wetsuit just slid up from splashed water.

Re: Health of Kite Industry?

That's a very interesting question. I have no insight other than my personal observations... To me it looked like we hit a plateau a year or two ago, but now things seem to be on the rise with kiteboarding included in the Olympics. I think the initial cost investment to get into the sport has lowere...
