Re: Herniated disc

I herniated my L5/S1 disc back in early 2000 at the age of 30. At the time I was windsurfing a lot and racing with a guy named Hans in Margarita was what pushed it over the edge. Thanks Hans :) I was always fairly strong but not actually in very good shape, and had never done any sort of physical tr...

Re: Strutless gems - BRM clouds compared to Storm Voyager?

I could comment on how rad the Clouds are, or compare them to foil kites, or to other LEI kites – but the original question was about how the Clouds compare to the Voyagers – and since I haven't ever flown the Voyagers I don't really really have anything to add beyond what others have said. :thumb: ...

Re: Smaler BRM clouds

To the original question of how the smaller Clouds perform: I have been riding Clouds for two years now, first the C1's and now a 5/7/9/12 quiver of C2's. These days I ride foilboards more than surfboards, and so of course I am using my small kites even more often, but I started with small Clouds fr...

Re: 500 km solo dowinder in Brazil

Wow André - very impressive trip! I rode from Cumbuco to Jeri several years ago with a group and it was such an amazing trip, great kiting in a beautiful landscape, super fun place and great people everywhere too. I always wanted to do a longer trip like you – so cool. You are a true pioneer and voy...

Re: Any feedback on the Alpine Foil?

Just seeing this now, I don't check kiteforum all the time... Glad to see lots of Alpinefoil riders here! I have ridden old Carafino, MHL Lift (several versions), Spotz, Sword, and a couple of other foils here and there. Alpine won me over due to several factors: 1) very well thought-out design - no...

Re: Alpine foils

I've ridden old Carafino, Lift, Spotz, Sword and Alpine foils (maybe one or two others here and there), and the Alpine is my favorite for free riding (I have not raced them yet). Very well built and produced, great hydrodynamics, very stable but also turn well, and you can foil quite slow and pretty...

Re: Boardriding Maui CS Bar Review (no chicken loop or leash

@ronnie "Can you alter the distance between the rear lines on the bar easily?" I think perhaps Don misunderstood your question. Yes, you can change the distance between the rear lines. As stated on the web site "Adjustment in width can be made however I leave the side lines at full width for all siz...

Re: Boardriding Maui CS Bar Review (no chicken loop or leash

Great review Don. I have a couple of sessions on the CS as well, and I am very impressed. Greg managed to rethink many aspects of what has become to be received wisdom about kite bars and simplify, improve, and lighten the end result in several ways. The various functionalities of a kite bar are int...
