How far do you drive to kite?

20% the wind direction (side on) and speed is ok to kite within walking distance (if I did not have to carry the equipment)
20% the speed is ok but it's side off - > Drive 3 miles and get it side on.

40% the speed is low and I drive 15 miles to a spot that's almost always +10 knots to my home.

Re: Switch Lineup

I'm not a kite designer so I don't know exactly how flattening it out would affect turning amongst all the variables they've changed, but I think you get a more efficient kite for a given weight and potentially more power with less wasted fabric. BRM Clouds are flatter than most kites and they turn...

Re: The problem with flysurfer mixers.

It's great to see the flysurfer soul to support long mixer test by its design. This along many other features and characteristics make it the best freeride foil. On the other hand it's a shame that #2 doesn't even have an adjustable mixer! That's acceptable only at the pansh price level. Anyway if y...

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

What's the big deal? The holding company probably changed from emerald to duotone. So what? Who would be so stupid to change the name and lose all the brand value?
