I hope you get to rig a compressor, love to see pictures of it, if you do decide that route.

Re: Eletric Kite Inflation

Someone suggested it takes 50 pump strokes to inflate a big kite...Not sure what kind of pump he's using but I would say more like 100+ strokes to get proper pressure in a 12m or larger kite. not 50 pumps on a large kite to get to 8psi, 50 pumps to to "loosely inflate" i.e. you are pumping your kit...

Re: Gusting Problem

Hey all, My problem was that my kite would just fall out of the sky then drift into the power window just in time for the wind to pick up most kiters will just pack up and call it a day. it's no fun to constantly relaunch your kite, not to mention dangerous as you already found out. Usually when yo...

Re: How many kiters in the world?

edt- what would you consider a 'scientific survey' for kiting? Or how would you make sure that this info was "clean" and as useful as possible? (i.e. what kind of questions would provide the most beneficial info?) survey research is a very well developed science, you decide on sample size, create a...

Re: How many kiters in the world?

Does anybody have an idea, or any data of how many kiters are in the world ? The last info I found was that in 2006 the number was around 220.000. The sport has grown so much since that I belive that nowadays the number is above 1 M. Does anybody agree or have any idea of how is that number running...

Don't assume that they will, though. Expecting jetskiers to grasp the concept of Right of Way is a bit like expecting cattle to understand the Highway Code.
hahaha. Yes it is.

Re: who has the "righ of way"?

how does this work? should kiters follow sailing rules? do kiters that are on a wave have the right of way? is there a standard that PKRA follows? if i am kiting, do motor boats have to concede? while kiting, i just stay away from other kiters, but i feel that when i am on a wave other kiters shoul...

Re: What kite should I buy since I'm a beginner

I know you are thinking that if you buy used gear and crash it, you'll be better off but in my opinion a beginner is better off with new gear or gear that if used is only a year old, not the cheaper kites that are 2 or more years older. when you first start off you'll be crashing it all the time, an...
