Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Do you guys realize no matter what if the OP had an agenda or he was just honestly complaining, the damage that all this ridiculous discussion, calling names and blaming game is causing to Core image is waaaay worse than his initial complain? If he actually had a plan to "hurt" Core, damn he was re...

Re: What makes a jump drop fast?

Depends on kite but usually keeping kite at 12 throughout jump kills lift for me as my kite don't glide so well, also it's hard to keep good stance when you are dangling straight down under kite, much easier to keep kite moving so it stays a bit deeper in window. Anyway hard to tell what's wrong but...

Re: Heliloops turn into kiteloops

Re: Real risk to be hit by a lightening when riding

it's pretty common to feel tingle even when there is not lightning in the area, especially right when landing a jump,

Re: Core GTS-5 review

I demoed the 11m GTS5, never tried previous versions. I was surprised by the light bar pressure and bar feel, not sure what setting it was on but was quite light. It would takes some time to adjust. Another thing about the bar is that if you push it out a few inch you loose power very quickly, I gue...

Re: Powered kiteloop, fronthand not staying on bar.

That's weird, you are hooked in shouldn't be a problem keeping both hands on bar, try maybe front hand closer to center and back hand in middle of bar, that's usually what i do. Well when bar pressure isn't bad i even keep both hands in middle of bar it's usually enough to crank bar. Both hands on b...
