Re: Chrono 15m kite review

I think you need to get a Xsnsr, or maybe organise a boosting comp in the UK, I will have a word with Lewis to see if I can get him to organise one.

Re: Chrono 15m kite review

@Blade 9/10ps is only 18-20kns A 9m kite does not work well as you know in this wind. I'm guess your comparing the 9m when the wind is pumping and its powered. Yea in the vid those are down wind loops, I see in his video's he like to use them quite often. But your saying that the 12m is powered up ...

Re: Freestyle with big kites

It should be possible at your weight, I am 85 and need 10to 12 knts to be able to pop tricks on a wake style board. Kite choice is important, A race kite will be harder to use as they need the board speed to create power, but if you are super skilled it is possible. (there is a video of Andy Yates o...

Re: Bodyweight & Kit Size vs Fitness & Power?

Its irrelevant to see what people are flying unless you know them, In 20knts I may be riding a 17m or a 7m depending on what I feel like doing, so even if you know me its pointless.
Or I know someone who will be on a 10m if it anything from 15 to 35 knts.

Re: European vs American kite culture

Here in Sweden, women are always naked so that they can cuddle the polar bears that roam freely in our cities. We're also big on making watches and cheese...no wait, that's Switzerland. Our first language is probably American but some how we learn "Scandinavian" as well. It's totally weird! Most pe...

Re: small wave kite = storm kite?

I have a 6m 2010 naish cult which has seen a lot of use this year in storms we have had in the UK.
This kite is excellent in these conditions and doenst buckle , flap, or invert, I would love a 4.5 as it was to much fabric at times on a surfboard.

Re: bob marley for president!

We had a similar case on a local forum, he was delusional but his angle was safety. It led to the police getting involved and did damage to the freedom to discuss things in a humorous way. I am sure Bob is unwell and is using weed to self medicate, it is unfortunate when mental illness plays out on ...
