Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!

I love air style, foiling, strapless and wakestyle. The appeal of which is that to learn certain tricks and to land them consistently one must crash hundreds of times. The challenge of learning a difficult handle pass trick and then mastering it gives great reward. Learning a strapless back roll mi...

Re: How often do you break bars? How's warranty?

Slingshot bars are definitely very durable and I like how solid they feel compared to lighter bars (like core's) which feel a bit flimsy. The only thing i have broken on a SS bar is the rear lines as they are thinner/weaker than the front lines. Weight savings is great but it needs to carefully acco...

Re: Board size for stronger winds

Re: Front Roll Kiteloop Progession

Re: 1080p kite fooatge to 4k any video people here

Yes it is probably true that youtube doesn't compress 4k as much as 1080 but technically upscaling will not improve quality. You are welcome to try it and upload both videos it to youtube to compare if there are any differences in visual fidelity. Try HandBrake (https://handbrake.fr) it's an open so...

Front Roll Kiteloop Progession

After nailing down kiteloops I started learning frontroll kiteloops (boogie loops). In the beginning they felt very disorienting for some reason even though i have been doing regular front rolls forever and now they actually feel better the backroll kiteloops. Low to mid-20knt winds on a fast/smalle...
