Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Hi Matteo, Thanks for writing that description, totally agree with you, re sideshore, onshore, cross/on which require the kite to stay in the sky, "drift", as you said , the wind in the video is cross/off, and the kite is in effect flying forwards developing apparent wind.

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Sorry if that post was slightly off topic, I'm not sure you can influence, or initiate a kite to drift, more like just keep it in the sky! over and out.

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Hi Vela, Interesting you mentioned riding with straps, I usually ride strapless, but today the conditions were "lumpy, bomb crater sized chop, with persistent shore break, cross onshore winds, 10m conditions if you weigh around 75k. getting off the beach would be difficult on my strapless.

Re: Improve Kite Drifting Technique

Hi Vela, I think you already have a good idea of what you need to do, but if I could add some points, 45 degrees is about right, although if you are well powered up then you can keep the kite lower. Above 45 degrees is not helpful, too easy to get under the kite ! slack lines. Don't over pull on the...

Re: Naish Repair Hack

I was being sarcastic when I suggested Alexeyga should boycott Naish Kites, as if this forum even with all it's active members could alter the global sales of a Kite manufacturer by a boycott is ridiculous. Also it seems the complainers don't seem to have Naish kites, do they want them and are upset...

Re: surfboard vs directional kite board

Hi, I can imagine how your new board is more "twitchy" more reactive, probably has a narrower tail section compared to the Infinity 6, and as you said , more rocker, these design elements make it less stable at rest ( in the middle of a tack) and while changing feet before or after a gybe. you proba...
