Re: Ozone bar new graphic

It has to be red-green as historically colors are coming from sailing. None of those colors are used on this bar here. Plus some people have difficulty to separate blue and black colors. Specially men, about 10% of us has bigger or smaller problems with color recognition :) At my work one time I hav...

Re: downwinder ultrlight pack

Do you guys have phones if you kite alone? I have mobile phone in a waterproof bag, which I put into jogging phone case on my arm. Just in case I break a leg or something, and there is nobody on the beach.
Someone have better solution?

Re: Beginner - buy gear or more lessons?

just go dude. I had instructor for 5 hours for start, how it works, fly kite, safety, body drag etc. And then 2-3 hours for more safety and waterstart, but wind was extremely weak- he gave me to fly 19m kite :) that day it barely counts. After I could go up on my strong side and crash after 5 meters...

Re: Stupid question - what does overpowered feel like?

My indication is- if you can't bodydrag upwind after loosing board- you are overpowered. change to smaller size or go ashore. Also my bodydraging technique is not perfect from other side :)

Re: Beginner and waves - tips?

First I tried to bodydrag into flatter water- takes long time and slamming against waves are very tiring. Then you put your boar...

Re: Funalexed Pansh Aurora

I did exactly as funalex on my 22m and I indeed remember I removed AB6. Just remember to obviously change the lenght to adapt your 15m (he did the modification on a 12m), i.e multiply the length by square(15/12)=1.12 Only the changes in the file are required. thanks for answer. excel file calculate...
