Re: Flysurfer Peak 1 bar hole

Before modifying the bar you can try putting some Silicone spray or wax on the lines to see if that prevents them from binding.

Re: with gear. No bars in carryon?

I travel alot on kite trips and never bring my bar as carry on,. However, my kiting brother in-law packs his bar in his carry on travel suit case and has never had a problem.

Horst, what line length were you using. What wind range would you predict to foil (73 kg) for the 6.5 m Wave?

Foils look nice!
Please comment on 2 front straps vs single strap for wave riding.

Re: snow kiting toronto area

Snow kiting Dec 25, 26 on Cooks bay at the bottom of Glenwoods Rd. Claredon Park should also be OK now. Snowmobiles and Fish huts are out on Cooks bay. Conditions - hard paced snow with ice patches.

Re: What you think to learn balance?

I have a number of Balance boards. I made my own Goof board and Dirt Sun. I use them with different size PVC pipes and Foam rollers. Also get a BoSu ball which you can use with the Goof board.
