Re: POV Video - Deathlooping Kite Drags Rider Into A Rock Je

Not sure what brand of kite he is using, but the rope like material of the center lines/chicken loop is different than the plastic covering found on the kites I use (Cabrinha). I would think that the wrap would have been at least more recognizable with the more bulky plastic material, but who knows....

Re: Any advice is welcome

One issue I've had in doing the transition, which I'm surprised hasn't been addressed, is when should I unspin the bar? Should I just work on the whole redirection with the crossed lines? Or maybe wait to finish the rotation, unspin, then send the kite hard?

Re: Raging Kite Landing Lesson

every 4 line kite has a front line safety system built in. all you have to do is bring the kite to the edge of the window, grab the front line of the down side and pull that one front line hand over hand. the kite will flag out on its back and that is the end of it. the more wind, the better it wor...

Supa those are pretty impressive numbers for FL in July and August.

Are those end of day sea breeze sessions or are you maximizing your light wind (~10knots) riding ability?

Re: How long should a kite last before requiring repairs?

If you get yourself a drawstring laundry bag, i.e.: http://www.amazon.com/Honey-Can-Do-Cotton-Jersey-Laundry-Blue/dp/B001F51AN0/ref=pd_sim_hg_22 Fill that bag with sand (it will be crazy heavy), attach to a large carabiner, and attach that to chicken loop. With trim straps also pulled in (and kite l...

Re: How long should a kite last before requiring repairs?

I occasionally launch tethered too, but usually only when it is too windy for the kite to stay put for a normal self-launch. A "normal" self-launch s...

Re: Why does wearing my harness without anything under hurt

I have the same problem and it really sucks. Even when I wear a rashguard (with wetsuit no probs) my skin gets so irritated after a few days in a row kiting that it kills my sessions. I've tried glide (like for running) and baby powder which helps a little. Any other tips? May have to switch to the ...
