Re: Boosting only one way

Keep practicing your weak side...in time you'll come up with a technique that'll prolly have your weak side boosting higher than your strong side.

Re: Researching kiteboarding locations

Fly into Corpus (CRP). Google lessons in Corpus...you'll have many choices. www.kiteboarding.com is the shop in Corpus and of course they offer lessons too. It's windy there now and around July (when it gets super hot in central TX), onshore thermal winds build everyday after noon and blow into the ...

Re: Naish Dash - is it good for beginner?

The Dash is a high-aspect kite. So for a new kiter it will most likely... be hard to relaunch hard to self-launch/land and will easily "Hindenberg" Find a used, cheap, low-aspect (wave style) kite...much more forgiving and you'll progress very fast. Then in 6 months, if you're still wanting to jump ...

Re: Naish Repair Hack

Naish Repair Hack

Naish makes great kites...always has. Yet there are some pros & cons to the octopus system. All the cons with the system arise IF you have do any repairs to bladders or valves. Again, Naish makes a quality product so you'll most likely not have any bladder or valve issues unless you damage your kite...

Re: Naish Park/Dash - like kite but not Naish?

Copy... Any faulty inner valve will deflate its strut, even if the strut doesn't really have a leak. I discovered the slow leak while kiting...20mins riding and noticed some "flapping" going on. Came in and pumped up hard...waited 20mins and noticed 3 of the 5 struts were limp, along with a spongy b...

Re: Naish Park/Dash - like kite but not Naish?

yep..makes zero sense. I don't see the benefit of the octopus system...especially if a strut has a leak and takes the rest of the kite down with it. Dangerous in my opinion. If I were to find myself way offshore, I'd rather a limp strut than a limp (and going limper) leading edge bladder. Back to th...
