Re: What's the best thing about kite surfing?

x2 on variety. Suits my moods. If I want no one to bother(avoid even eye contact) me I fly my foil kite. When I foilboard I have some interesting talks with engineer types on the beach.Nothing like a big air old school session to have little old ladies cheering. And on date night I pull on the boots...

Re: Kite collapsing on itself during down loop !

I live with this problem daily. I'm 225lbs and I can fold any kite in half if I try! Had problem with a new 9 mtr rpm. I could have sworn there was a defect. I thought I had it pumped up hard enough. It was so bad I was afraid to throw a powered loop, it would drop me like a rock! Ended up pumping i...

Re: How do KBs keep from drowning when they wear boots

there is no "special technique". you just roll over so the board is in front of you. you will figure it out in less than 10 seconds. the kite isn't going to pull you while you're in the water for more than a second when you fall. if you are being dragged then you need to let go of the bar. it's not...

Re: Best gloves for kiting

- Mesh helps for windchill but the durability is shorter. - Thickness helps, but to much gives cramp. - Gloves with bended fingers helps an lot for cramps in de underarms I always go for a mesh glove or mitten where the fingers are bend. The NPX mitten is the most warm glove I've had. http://cdn1.b...

Re: Balance question - before I get my drill out....

I 100% agree to get rid of rear foothook. Started with front footstrap, then front hook. The ability to move(wiggle!) your foot around is a game changer. Broke the hook and had to learn to waterstart "strapless, little tricky but since I was 1/2 mile off shore gave me a little extra incentive. Put i...

Re: Wetsuits: Front Zip Vs Back Zip

Seems like many dedicated kite and windsport shops are still heavily stocking back zip suits. That's because the majority of the kiteboarding user base is older men...not known for being limber. Was thinking exactly that too but didn't want to admit it! I've come to embrace my "condition". Bad back...
