Re: Hung Vu, a kitesurfing pioneer, how did he help you?

While learning to kite in 2001 I found Hung's website. Without his advice and website I would have probably not have learned to kitesurf. He was always ready to give advice. The one bit of instruction that helped me was when being overpowered on a 2 line kite to edge as hard as you can upwind and sl...

Re: Knots - Matching those used by Cabrinha

Same problem with both of my line sets for my 11 and 16m xbows (2010). I took the loop out of both steering line pigtails and use the knots on the kite end wing tips for adjustment.

Re: River Foiling

I would advise against using a leash as the board/hf might get caught on a submerged structure, tree branch, log, etc. and pull you under due to the current. It would be hard to disconnect it under those conditions.

Re: Who Has Right of Way?

Also the kiter on starboard should hold his course so the yielding kiter on port tack will know what to do and can take appropriate action (bearing off). And don't wait till you get too close to take action to avoid a collision even if you have the right of way.
