Re: Modern kite with classic feel

Have heard many times the 14m torch ins't so much a light wind kite as a torch for big guys. Meant for at least decent kiteboarding conditions. I agree, my 12 is better than my 14 Torch in lightwind as I can fly it around more, 14 Torch is just very slow and cumbersome in light winds Although that'...

Re: How to rig for the highest jump?

It is important to get pop off the wave, you must have really really good timing you get 2 lifts. First off the wave and then a second blast when you send the kite. Disagree...... For big air, you need a third lift at the zenith of the second boost You also need the 4th boost as you loop the kite, ...

Re: How to rig for the highest jump?

I'm not doubting it but if you go back to the OP then board choice is far less critical than kite size in relation to wind when aiming to get the biggest jumps which was the point I was making. If you want to give unrealistic examples then fine but the biggest jumps require you to be seriously overp...

Which board gets you higher? The answer will be your normal board. You will not be able to hold the same power with...

Re: How to rig for the highest jump?

Kickers are essential to go as big as possible. I won't say the ability of board to hold down power had much bearing, don't need to edge much when you have a kicker to launch off. Yes you need kickers. But also you need to be able to hold power at speed. So the board does matter. Also if you can ti...
