Re: Kamakuza.... darn whats his nickname?

Now, I can't undestand this forum-sport. I did a silly attempt at joking at another thread and hell broke. Kamikuza refuses to be dramatic about the tsunami and people accuse him of being a heartless bastard. Even this comment will probably be followed by a similar unjustified and offensive reply. I...

Re: Is it cruel to kitesurf next to windsurfers?

It seems very cruel to kitesurf next to windsurfers. Their board is too big and heavy, their lines are too short, their kite has a rigid frame that makes it very heavy and ineffective. Thereby, they have great trouble planing, turning, jumping, looping etc. I feel sorry when kiting next to them, kn...

Re: Backroll - looping the kite by mistake

Hands to the center of the bar will help a lot. Another tip maybe re-trying it with a big slow kite which will be very difficult to loop even if you don't quite do it right. I find it astonishinlgy easy to bakroll with style when I am on my tractor kite and towards the upper end of its wind range. I...

Re: Is it cruel to kitesurf next to windsurfers?

We have a mix of Kiteboarders and windsurfers at our beach, the windsurfers always look unhappy, the Kiteboarders always look happy, why is that :?: I know I will often fly past windsurfers and perhaps that’s the reason, the best thing is there is room for everyone to enjoy their chosen sport, but ...

Re: Is it cruel to kitesurf next to windsurfers?

Wow, you really do have a one track mind. Your similarity to PMU is getting more and more noticeable. :oops: I apologise, I will do my best to avoid such similarities in the future. I was only joking and expressing my joy for being in a wonderful sport but seems that I did it in a disrespectful (fo...

Re: Is it cruel to kitesurf next to windsurfers?

That's like comparing sailboats to power boats. Or kiteboarding to wakeboarding. Or waterskiiing to jet skiing. Or badminton to tennis. Or BMX to motocross. Or vanilla yogurt to natural tart yogurt. It's a different experience. That's what makes it special. I agree they are different and fun. Howev...

Re: Is it cruel to kitesurf next to windsurfers?

Toby, there is something wrong with the post above, according to the given date it is posted in 2011, but analysing the content I can only conclude that this post is from 2000... Toby, there is something wrong with the post above, it suggests that kitesurfing hasn't changed since 2000. It also sugg...
