Re: biggest regret purchase

Carifino anyone? I dunno. I think Carafino started the foil revolution. It got me to try to get a SUP foil made 6 years ago (even contacted several fin designers to get one made). It made me understand that raceboard would lose if someone could figure out a design that could handle speed. I was ass...

Re: 2 kites quiver: 8m and 12m?

Terrible. Just kidding, but the gap is too big IMO. Here is my the, at your normal spot there will be one kite you use more than others. Get that kite. Then fill around it. It is almost impossible to get away with 2 kites... the good thing is that you do not have to get all the kites at once. I dunn...

And if there's still time before the sun goes down for an evening session after work there are a few more exercises that might just warm up those problem tendons:

TBH I would do more stretches, if I was not a lazy SOB. Maybe some day.

Re: Boosting only one way

Its normal. To me there are few considerations. For instance sometimes if you are in big surf its a matter of safety to be able to jump both ways. Same goes for switching and toeside riding. If you do not have any safety considerations it is of course entirely up to you if you want to learn both way...

Re: How dangerous is this?

Knotwindy, the rider abilities really has no bearing on this at all. Shit can happen. Sure it does. If he is well within his ability level he can handle whatever ‘shit can happen ‘. We all do this all the time . Secondly sure people has different risk assessment skills, the problem is of course tha...

Re: How dangerous is this?

How dangerous is it? Lucky there was no fatality. I mean of course it depends on the child. If the child swims in the ocean every day and can swim back from however far out it is, then it's not a big deal but if they can't . . . . This is exactly the point. A 6 y/o kid cannot judge that. And a pare...

Re: Naish Dash - is it good for beginner?

Btw sheet and go is great...but not a requirement to learn. For me sheet and go type kites are great for beginners...but it is also great for strapless surfboard tricks and the likes...
If you are going for freestyle I think you'll do well on the dash. Its not that hard to ride it.

Re: How dangerous is this?

I think it is bananas. I also have a fairly strong dislike for parents subject their kids to shit like that (usual excuse is to say but the kid wanted to as if the kid is able to make those judgments). SO I know there is a lot I do not know here. Were the kid in a vest, how are the conditions...how ...
