Re: If you can get rid of any style of kiteboarding, what style would you possibly get rid of and why?

Strapless freestyle. It just looks awkward - why use a surfboard when a wake skate will do the job better?

Re: Mutants for stupid conditions!

Inserts run straight down the centre line of the board, so straps could be set up symmetrically if you wanted. The space craft rides pretty much like a twintip with a slight directional bias - the other LF hippy sticks might work better if you're after more of an old school mutant experience.

Re: Shinn el Stubbo Zeeko Aluminium 90cm Hydrofoil

I picked up an el stubbo with a 70(?)cm mast last year. It was 2nd hand so didn't get any option on mast length. So far I've had maybe 15 sessions, if the water is flattish I can make maybe 25% of my gybes in one direction and 5% in the other. To be honest I don't currently feel that the shorter mas...

Re: What to consider when choosing kitesurfing brand.

Do people chose brands? Just buy the kit that works for you - the manufacturer is largely irrelevant.

Re: Belize Ambergris Caye - Info Please

I went to Ambergris Caye a few years ago during new year. Was only there for several days and the following could be out of date but this is what my initial impressions were: - Kiting around San Pedro on your own will be difficult - the accessible bits of beach on the East side of the island have a ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

I was looking at an old Cab bar picture online and didn't seem like it's any different from my setup except the PU on the rope itself. Again not trying or being hard headed just don't necessarily see the difference. Not used that bar but it looks like it suffers from the same flaw. The more recent ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Don't you need a stopper a couple of inches above the safety release? At the moment you have a potential problem if your centre line gets wrapped around the bar and your release doesn't have enough to fully operate.

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

Beginners who can't be bothered to walk up or down wind for 5 minutes before launching and instead stand right in the middle of where you're riding with their kite at 12 whilst they mess about with their footstraps for 10 minutes.

Was I talking to you?
You replied to my posts so the implication would be yes, you were. Or is that not how conversation works in Cumbuco?

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

Really? Looks like the ones who made the lawn mowing comments clearly don’t know shit about this sport if they think it’s either mowing the lawn or handlepass. You bought into a hype created by the industry and have no firsthand experience of the sport. Just typists and wet dreamers! I never mentio...
