Re: Kite and Board Size Confusion

True, you need a bigger kite if heavier, and most use a tad bigger board too but not much. If you only used a way bigger board when heavy, your hangtime would suck and jumping be ridiculous... Also, the board would be way too clumsy for wave/moves or freestyle... This goes for both freestyle and wav...

Re: Tried for the first time a race board ... not happy!

And what IS the stance width, most narrow and widest on the Comet Pedro ? Center strap to center strap that is - just to have an idea what you are talking about, as it is very individual. I ride 65 cm, not wide nor narrow stance, most often, but am only 175 cm tall. Others like TahoeDirk prefer 70-7...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Ha haa, awesome Horst :thumb: Eventhough you could just as well have made a new topic, as it got nothing to do with stabless or not :wink: I learned to kitesurf with this very type, 7.5 m2 Mosquito Pro in 1999, two lined kite on a directional :rollgrin: Problem was overflying - it had to be modified...

Re: Why not more canards ?

The bigger question, Peter, is why don’t you have one already?????? Ha haa, you are right :wink: Maybe for the same reason as to why others havent gotten them into their product range yet. When you have a complete working interchangable range, it is difficult both for us users as well as the brands...

Re: riding toeside

hi folks, thanks for the replies thus far, one other question can you bring the kite over the top to carve to toe or do you need to downloop? Definitely, I almost entirely fly the kite "up" when carving and jibing and riding waves - downlooping is IMO no good for that many things, unless as a trick...

Re: riding toeside

is it harder to ride toe side with two straps at the front as your front foot is off centre and down to leeward compared to having one centre strap? thanks! No, it is actually a bit easier standing off centre front foot a bit to leeward, as you dont have to twist your body as much, to go upwind whe...

Re: North bag zips complete sh*t!

Let's talk about frozen zipper (not necessarily North ) and it's blowing hard You try and try to unzip the bag of your 7m (that you rarely use) and the tab breaks off....you don't have a pair of pliers to pull on zipper piece that's left and water to dissolve salt crystal deposits All your friends ...

Re: 4 meters waves yesterday at tarifa!

They were talking about right of way, what do you think about it? The kitesurfer had the wave first, so his wave. BUT, whenever possible it is good etiquette to give the wave to surfers, who can not navigate as much nor get that many waves - so I think it was good to see both getting the wave here ...

Re: Why not more canards ?

RH, one can not compare to airplanes, for several reasons. The "deep stall" risk can be critical - nonexistent problem on a hydrofoil. The issue with missing leverage for a rudder to turn efficiently - nonexistent on a hydrofoil. So at least two of the major issues with canard airplanes are not pres...
