Re: Kiteboarding Rules-of-Navigation Video

Incoming rider CANNOT always jibe and give way. The best example of this is the case for a strapped rider in overhead conditions, or for chest high when considering a strapless rider.... C'mon, that's purely academic. In overhead conditions, you make sure your way is free when you're going out. You...

Re: Kiteboarding Rules-of-Navigation Video

Spot on, and make sure to spray their sorry asses when you're shouting STARBOARD at them :D That's why racing has their own, more complicated set of rules: special situation, makes it more interesting, and all the racers know the rules. The "give way to outgoing kiter" rule is simple: outgoing is go...

Re: Kiteboarding Rules-of-Navigation Video

Common sense goes a long way when dealing with noobs: keep clear or untangle your lines :-) Bad maneuverability has got to be obvious, or announced. An empty supertanker is difficult to steer and obvious, and a dredge or fishing vessel has respective signs hoisted to make it clear for everybody. Kit...

Re: Kiteboarding Rules-of-Navigation Video

Nice one, those are the most common PITA situations. let's touch on some questionable cases: 1. - a kiter launched a kite and hangs out at the water edge or on the beach within line length from water with kite in the air 2. - a kiter is riding in your wake and limits your maneuvering 3. - a kiter is...

I dunno - seems to me charging straight along a wave, on a TT, at speed, through an area with surfers waiting in the line-up isn't kosher.
Yeah that's what happened. With kilometers of the same wave to the right & no surfers

Re: 4 meters waves yesterday at tarifa!

They're not mates, there was quite a bit of unfriendly fire afterwards. The kiter fucked it up, because he went kiting on a surf spot, instead of going 500m - 9500m down to the right. Same same conditions for 10km of beach that day, and the idiot choses to wave his dick on the surfers. Completely un...

Re: 4 meters waves yesterday at tarifa!

Balneario is a surf spot on big days, kiters windsurfers SUPs stay away and simply go a bit further down direction Valdevaqueros - there's 10km of waves for everybody, no need to be a pain to the surfers. This is common since the beginning of times. So yeah, the kiter was being an idiot for no good ...

Re: Kite Surfboards vs "normal" Surfboards

...The simple definition of a thruster is a 3 fin configuration with a larger double foiled center fin and smaller toed in side fins with flat to 60/40 foiled side fins. Ah OK I see, you were really referring to high school level. Sorry, my bad, I thought you had analyzed and modeled the thruster s...
