Re: Stains on Slingshot kites

Like iriejohn is indicating, this most often happens when the kite has been put away wet from freshwater (rain or hosed off) for awhile. It's a mildew and there's not much you can do (safely for the kite) to remove it. Maybe someone here knows something I don't and will share it. And this happens ac...

Re: Megaloop Boardoff

It's amazing that guy can jump so high with all that weight...you know balls that big have to be heavy! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Is it just me, or is the jump at 1:03 using a bar stopper? I can't see it, but it looks like it never goes out when he takes his hands off. :?:

Re: OR Soul: is this over kill for cold water protection?

*Disclaimer-I sell Souls (as well as others) I was a drysuit naysayer for a while, then I had a chance to use one. There's no going back once you do that, IMHO. I teach all year round here, even when the air temp is at freezing and the water temp is 50 F. I stand around for hours teaching people to ...

Re: Why would a city want Kiteboarders

Where I live in Virginia we host an annual surf competition that's affiliated with the WSL; our waves suck and the contest is usually run in boat wake or windblown onshore crap. Kiting would be an awesome add-on to that event, give the audience something to watch when the waves aren't pumping, and ...

Re: Tips for learning to kite with a prosthetic leg.

Currently I am teaching kitesurfing to a man with 1 above the knee prosthetic leg. In the hope to find information about this I contacted Bille and searched through the forum. Bille said let's make this a public topic and here we are: This thread is meant to collect as much information as possible ...

Re: Still waiting for the Ocean Rodeo Foil....

OR lives in an area where there is lots of kelp, floating logs, and rocks. Probably not going to be high on the list of things to get done RIGHT NOW! ;)

Re: Hung Vu, a kitesurfing pioneer, how did he help you?

He was my earliest reference on kiteboarding. I started teaching myself on 2 line kites back in 2000 in Wisconsin and there was no one around to watch or ask questions. His commentary on going up wind was crucial in my finally getting it right. I was SOOOOO tired of getting blown to the other side o...

Re: any tips for boat launch or similar?

I like this video, though I agree with jeromeL on putting water on the canopy to help it drift further downwind before starting to turn.

And assuming you'd like to return to the boat...
