Re: selfish short term kite industry

So I don't see this " loss of youth in kitesurfing market" as a mistake or a problem. It's the industry knowing what's going on in the world around them and acting appropriately to the situation in order to make money and have a sustainable business.

Re: Is my instructor bias regarding buying gear?

10-12knots, 11m tube, tt , 65kg. Good luck. If after however long you struggle on that 11m and per chance don't give up, you will be on a much more powerful kite like a 15m foil, or... a hydrofoil. Riding underpowered is much harder than overpowered. Riding overpowered is easy you just need strong ...

Re: selfish short term kite industry

True, the industry was aiming more at young riders. But, did that work out? Most riders are older, because they have the money. Finally the industry targets the right group. And more youth gets attracted thru Olympia now... But honestly...why would we care if our sport has more younger riders than ...

Re: GoPro Head strap
