Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

^^^ Same! I find the larger surf wings much easier to control, and have fun on in high wind, and swell. I can slow down and play. Funny that half a year ago I was still getting “those are beginner wings”, “you can go really slow on race wings too”. Can doesn’t mean should. One perspective I was cer...

Re: Queen of the Air

Alright kids. I was skeptic and had low expectations based on the video even though I know some girls just rock and indicate having significant b@@lls the way they ride!

Please post updates.

Re: Crazy kite trick: parasailing connected to other kiter

Hi guys, I once saw a YouTube video with a crazy kite trick... two or three kiters hooked up and the most upwind kiter would allow the other(s) to take off and fly/parasail. Does anyone know that video, or another example? It was part of a longer promo vid. Cheers and keep jumping :jump: Nick Jacob...

Re: Need advice for beginner - kite size

I can see how on a big lake with swell and built-up current after couple of days of same direction 10 knots wind less 4 mph current could mean seriously challenging conditions to ride even with a 17m. Even in 12-14 knots and current you feel kite flying solid standing on shore but barely gets you ri...

Re: Need advice for beginner - kite size

.... Clearly you didn’t read correctly: 10 meters at 10 Knots only fits the 50 kg category on the chart, so take a wild guess where my weight fits 🙄 I didn’t think I have to spell it out for the contentious but illiterate Show me one person who weighs 50 - 54 kg who can ride a 10 in 10 Knots. The s...

Re: Does it matter to have a heavy board for foiling

IN general a heavy board would be disatvantage. A large board with a good nose rocker might be easier to learn on.
4kg is not as bad, you're fine. Except carrying aluminum foil and a heavy board is not fun.

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

What a strange thread this is turning into. Do Christians and Muslims love Rams too? d assume rams' meat is far from tender and might smell not pretty either so hard to love it. In means of bestiality I thought it's rather sheeps, at least as far as anecdotes go and we should stay away from discuss...
