Places I have been to, worth going again: La Ventana (winter months only) Cabarete, DR - you stay on the beach and walk out to kite. You can take a short motoconcho (small motorcycl...

Re: Hot launch techinque with inflatable

How do you set up the LEI for the hot launch? The bladder/leading edge away from you downwind, with the inner part of the kite faced up (like the foil kites - although I'm not an expert in them)
And how fast are you raising it up, to prevent any gusty over pull.

Re: Knife - what to you think?

Re: Lift introduces electric foil!

Isn't there a way to just design a motor/fan for propulsion that can be attached to the mast, or two motors in parallel, that can be mounted on the mast, close to the fuselage. Modular - so you can add/remove when ever you want. That would be a lot cheaper, as a few people already have the Board and...

Airush Ultra 15

Looking into a lighter wind single strut kite for wave riding strapless, in the 8-15 or so range.
Airush Ultras seem light and responsive based on the forum.
Any experience and thoughts?
I have North Neos 6, 8, 12.

Re: What's the best thing about kite surfing?

Having just got out on a surfboard, riding in warm wind and water - after a few weeks of not riding - and loving the grip of the bare feet on the wax of the strapless surfboard. Blue/turquoise warm waters, the occasional turtle you avoid, few others riding, waves breaking on the reef - not thinking ...

Re: Naish Maui Pro Center Closed - Bummed

I want to start by saying DWX I'm not picking on you by saying this but....a lot of places in California are MORE expensive than Maui. Definitely sections of San Francisco, down in sections of the Cal Central Coast (where I live) and others. In parts of Cal, gas is significantly more expensive than...
