Re: Snow kite up and speed fly down.

The snowkite video "Mountains of Wind" by Will Taggart had some scenes of snowkiting up and speed flying down. I think it was Pascal Joubert doing the speed flying. Unfortunately, that fantastic video was removed after over 60K views. I found an abbreviated version here: http://www.alaskakiteadventu...

Re: How often do you get chased by dogs?

I haven't had it happen on the snow, but often when mountain biking.
I've been taken aback sometimes when the owner reprimanded me for riding away with their dog rather than reprimanding the dog for not obeying their commands. I've even been accused of trying to steal their dog.

Re: snow kiting - which is better? skies or board?

One advantage that snowboarders have over skiers is when gliding. Gliding is easier at first facing backwards with the wind at your back like on the water. However, in gliding you aren't going sideways to the wind, you're going into it. While in the air it doesn't matter whether on a board or skis, ...

Re: snow kiting - which is better? skies or board?

I've found that it's easier to stay standing on skis in lighter winds, because on a snowboard if the counter-pull of the kite drops off you fall over backwards. You can definitely edge better with skis in icy conditions, so you can handle a larger kite size and go upwind better. A snowboard is bette...

Re: Kite in Kite out property near Vancouver, Washington

Because of the train tracks on both sides of the river, there are almost no properties with river frontage anywhere within The Gorge. We rented a place in Rowena once where there are a dozen or so houses with big lawns leading down to the water, but the wind quality there is terrible for kiting beca...

Re: Airstyle - The Next Level - Toby Braeuer

...But, I would offer this critique... For all the smoothness and style present in your riding, the video is really lacking style... I think Toby would agree with that, for his intention is not to impress us with little add-on stylistics and gimmicks that we've all seen at our local beach or in com...
