Re: True C kites 14 meters

Any 14m will already have less wind range than a smaller kite due to the winds you'll be flying it in, there are diminishing returns. If you already have a 12 I'd just get one of the 17m light wind kites so you can actually get some pop.

Re: carving to toe

i think what he means by yaw only is just pointing the board in the correct direction without leaning into it like a carve on a surfboard/twintip? (sorry i didnt read all the posts but this is the technique i use a lot of the time) the tricky part is keeping the arc of your turn wide enough that the...

Re: Question about kite bar

The wind window is smaller with smaller lines, so it doesn't have as much room to fly around. This can be good for waveriding or whenever you just want the kite to get around the window quickly. The shorter lines also make the kite react faster since your movements don't have as far to travel. Some ...

Re: 8/9-15 Knots, choppy water, FW Evo, what kite?

yeah you're not going to be foiling in 7 kts on the 12m enduro. im pretty close to your weight (145ish) and don't really foil on my 12 envy until about 10 knots absolute minimum because it's just boring and you're watching the kite the whole time to make sure it doesn't fall in the water. if you rea...

Re: cant reach full depower

You should already be riding with your arms fully stretched and hanging back in your harness so that you don't get tendonitis, with the bar somewhat close to your body. If you need to depower more than you can reach, it sounds like you need to pull more trim in (that's what it's there for). Riding w...

Re: 3D printing of kite plastic parts: low friction sliding ring

This post was started to show to audience a new way of distributing kitesurfing parts. The price of the parts is still high but shipment costs and pollution is low because produced and sent from your country. For example a product made in China has a low cost but has to travel a lot before arriving...
