Re: Anyone else dodging "flying fish"?

hit a few fish in Florida last time I went down there. It was pretty freaky, each time i would land a jump, fish will get scared and jump right into my chest.

Re: Is it true no kiting on Playa Del Carmen beaches?

there isn't beach room to setup and a lot of swimmers in center of playa del carmen.

I kited a few times off the beach just north of the reef cocoa beach.

Overall kiting wasn't great there but i was there only 4 days.
I went to Holbox and it was great.
Tulum looked ok too.

Re: Core xr5 slow

Make sure you sheet in all the way when you steer it, I did notice that you need to be quite powered for it to be responsive since at teh bar it's on / off when sheeting in and out. With bandit you still get some steering when bar isn't sheeted all the way. coming from bandit it feels slow for sure ...

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

i have had a bruise over my cheek bones, definitly can't let it hang around your neck on tether, after landing a jump it will swing and hit you in the face and it hurts :o :cry: :lol:

I bring one of those on vacation but usually i try to fit a helmet.

Re: GoPro Head strap

Tried only once, i feel like head strap is good recipe for gopro smashing you in the face, also video isn't very stable.
Helmet mount gives much better results.

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Does anyone know for certain that kiting will NOT be allowed inside the jug handle bridge? There appears to be a large area of water on the inside of the bridge, and I'm sure kayaks, SUPs, fishing skiffs, etc. will use that area. My guess is there isn't a kiting prohibition (yet). It's possible the...

Re: 30.4m Jump on Woo?

Usually Woo registers waves as jumps of 1-1.5m. I believe so is here. But what is weird if you look jump timestamps of 20+ meter jumps you see wave jump at the same time. For example 30m jump there is 2s wave jump 2s before high jump. And this pattern is with all over 10m jump that very weird 'over...

Re: Got lofted once

Reminds me of my first powered session on C kite lol. You didn't really experience lofting, more like being slingshot in the air. Diving a 2008 C kite through in upper 20 will result in some real human slingshot experience. Here is my first experience with it and that was after 2 years of kiting, wh...
