Re: Neo bridle setting

The wave setting makes the kite sit deeper in the wind window due to front bridle positioning.
So more grunty but less high wind. Because of this it also does not fly as far to the wind window edge as in the freeride setting resulting in slightly reduced upwind performance.

Re: Fuerteventura North (Flag Beach, Corralejo etc)

Thanks guys

so windguru worked for you BenBen but gmb13 prefers windfinder superforecast.
(my experience in the spots I frequent with windfinder is that generally it shows overly optimistic forecasts but from your experience they are quite reliable for Flag beach. Good to know!)

Fuerteventura North (Flag Beach, Corralejo etc)

Hi, is the windguru forecast more or less reliable for spots at the Fuerteventura north shore such as Flag Beach / Corralejo or do I have to make a correction due to thermal effects or mountains etc depending on the exact direction? (A couple of days prior to actually travelling there I need to deci...

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Thanks or6 could be a mixture of several factors: - it was quite gusty, so maybe when I did the looping a gust just hit the kite, - as the wind is nearly 100% onshore maybe the kite was positioned too deep in the power zone of the window (this way of "surfing" waves is more of an exercise than anyth...

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Thanks Matteo V I do not understand what you are trying to say on the wave behavior. Could you please summarize the essence in different words? I am interested, in particular about the peak getting behind. (Just to be clear on terminology. For me swell is a wave which is not breaking. Swell is faste...

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Pardon the monologue, but maybe this interests others who are getting into kiting in or with waves. Here an update on my latest experiences. I have continued practicing drifting starting with low to moderate winds and fairly flat water to moderate to high winds with some wind swell. Drifting the kit...

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Hi An interesting new dimension has come up which I would like to comment. (I have purposely avoided talking about the precise wave conditions I intend to drift in to avoid a debate early on in this post before obtaining some advice on how to improve my technique.) For me kite drifting is by definit...

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Hi All, I am seeing a lot of good points here that will definitively help me improve. plummet & tautologies, I will try the flick trick to see how my kites behave. Based on my experience it should work with the Neos fine. Eduardo, that is exactly my idea to do less with the kite and more with the bo...
