Re: Was it Nick or Kevin?

It was seriously windy today. The SEaster blew all night and then around 8-9AM really cranked in. I waited a while and went out on my 7m Pivot around 12:30. By around 2PM it was too much, and I came in and rented a 5.5m Best Kahoona from the nearby Best Kiteboarding Africa shop. I rode that for abou...

Re: Was it Nick or Kevin?

It is absolutely cranking in Cape Town this morning. I'm not sure I can handle it on my 7m Pivot, but no doubt all of the pros, including Nick and Kevin, and some locals will be out putting on a show. I just watched two guys launch at the lighthouse in Milnerton on tiny kites. The gusts must be arou...

Re: Was it Nick or Kevin?

Good point, I had missed the parachute in one of the early scenes. Nuts all the same. And why not go for 300m while you are at it? Perhaps the line was not long enough. He was up there for a long time, I eventually got scared about being that far out in the bay on my own and turned back before he le...

Re: Was it Nick or Kevin?

And here's the video! Not only no emergency parachute that I can see, but he did not even secure his chicken loop!

Re: Was it Nick or Kevin?

Cool, thanks for finding it. Something tells me Nick did not have a little emergency parachute on his chest like Jesse appears to have had. The video should be fun.

No wind today, and little tomorrow, but Saturday will crank here.

Was it Nick or Kevin?

Yesterday while kiting at Sunset Beach in Cape Town I went far out in the bay to intercept one of the Volvo Ocean Race boats, called Turn the Tide on Plastic, as they came charging across towards the beach. I met up with them about a mile out and rode along for a while, but there was a hotshot kiter...

Re: How do you teach foilboarding?

Slingshot Hoverglide and the Flight School graduated masts worked well for me too. However, I'm struggling to move from them to a full mast and carbon foil on a short board, just get thrown off all the time. But the real problem is I'm too cheap to buy my own, so have been using friends, hence not e...

Re: the best beginner kite

Get a Naish Pivot, awesome kites for pretty much everything short of a megaloop. I wish I could try enough other kites to be able to compare, like the OR Prodigy above, but I cannot do that. All I can say is that after 10 years of kiting when I first flew a 2015 Pivot 9m I was hooked. Now have a 201...
