Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

Is this Ralph Grösel the guy behind NKB famous shitty softkites Husky and some other model. Same cast as Ken Winner and his blog post just before NKB totally lost racing scene. Perhaps those two just create bubble between themselves and cannot see the real reality. NKB still ain't capable of produci...

Re: Is directional more fun than door in LW?

Well I prefer door-tt on inland lakes or sea pools like Yyteri. Jumping, handplant roll tacks or darkslides are fun to do in light wind with proper 15m2 foil kite. It is just like snowkiting with snowboard in low wind.

Directional preferrers might have some swell to play with?

Re: Jumping=new love of my life!

She was boosting it right away. She did have a bit of a swim...... 15 mins in the water and not more than a cup of water in the thing once she drifted in! Amazing. A bit off topic.. If she can boost (not a novice) why didn't she relaunch the kite? No water inside it should have been super easy.

Re: Woo version comparison update?

What would be a deal breaker is jumping 3m and getting results randomly between, say, 2-5m. Just make the camera rig, take wind surf mast (5m), put 3 action cameras to it with 1m or 0.5m separation and film to far horizon.. If kiter jumping is over camera-horizon line jumper is higher than the lens...

Re: Foil Kite advice Chrono,Hyperlink, Soul

I had 2 decent swims albeit pilot error on my part on downlooping and catching a wingtip with my HL and paid the piper Why, If foil kite wing tip (like 20% of kite span) touches water/land just keep turning the kite. The tip fill fold in and open once back in the air. Or you could even catch steeri...

Re: Flysurfer-specific training?

About FS kitereps - ain't PKB at Toronto.. To continue low wind riding tips: - learn to fly kite in fast speed arcs instead of tight turns which stalls the kite. You 6m extensions which were probably included with your kite to gain more room to fly. - keep bar sheeted out as much as possible, you ne...

Re: Vertical Drop w Fly Surfer

I am not familier with Unity and it's flight behaviour. So I write in general some tasks you could do. On my experiences when line tension is lost most Flysurfers drift quite nicely if there is true wind. So I'd expect that from Unity as well. Instead of (inaccurately) measuring and using hours of t...

Re: Italian Kitesurfer dies in Brazil

What I don't understand is that a person would not just ride away from this what looks like a relatively slow moving phenomenon and in ultimo just release the kite if this is coming too close. I don't have experience with this type of weather and so I probably miss something. The phenomenon is movi...
