Re: Dynamic stretching - recommended for person engaged in extreme sports

A very comprehensive stretch video that lends itself to our most unceremonious angles by choice or other.. Most as above will find it too much and not bother, a good recommendation is to think about your 'particular' body part area that plays up occasionally or gets sore after a normal kite session....

Re: I need convincing too:) Bar back lines!

This is what your after, most lines are over hyped as proven when put under industry standard tests by rope manufacturers. I agree that sudden load pressure has the potential to snap or weaken a line, only to Fail some other time. Don't forget- every time you loop or downloop your kite, the lines tw...

Re: 2 kites quiver: 8m and 12m?

The 8 & 12m will be perfect - the XR5 has a big useable windrange. What I did was use a 58cm custom bar, with a longer throw, this will make them turn slightly quicker on 25m long lines while maintaining the power stroke. If using the standard core bar - it should have line extensions on it allready...

Re: Boosting only one way

Yes your normal - everyone has there weird moves that are only one turn away. What I noticed from my own kaos crash bandicoot style - is that most times regardless of co-ordination, most people do not physically spot their landing point the same. Then its just a guess where ever the hell I am haa ha...

Re: Trying to understand kite quiver

I took my 7 & 12m to Ireland for holidays. The gap was fine, if you can't hold the 12 down the 7 will be in its full control range.. better to have max control than max power at your experience level... Your board size makes a big difference too. I took my medium wind TT to make sure I could ride bo...
