Re: Riding waves backside....

The video that ESG posted shows excellent expamples of surfing and kite surfing backside. Maybe it is just me, but the backside looked incredible. Plus, the video shows using the wave for power rather than just the kite, he stays in the the pocket, he gets vert after a huge bottom turn, shows snap c...

Re: Light wind kite testing!

Rate them by how well they stay in the air in the lightest of wind. I was out on a light wind day on Maui. All kites fell out of the sky at about the same time except the cloud. The last of us (4 or 5 kiters) on the water were riding race boards and foils. The guy on the Cloud set it on a wing tip s...

Re: Riding waves backside....

In trying to keep this positive: I wonder about how surfing and kitboard surfing contests are scored when riding frontside, backside, frontside switch, or backside switch. Is there a degree of difficulty attached to any of those? I know in snowboarding entering and/or exiting a trick switch gets hig...

Re: Riding waves backside....

Agree Dirk; this really shouldn't get so heated. I also ride switch and backside in waves. Both are fun and worth learning. I ain't great at either as I might be in waves two to three times per year. Snowboarding is also a good way to learn switch skills. ASP contests are won frontside and backside....

Re: Different kite for snowkiting?

One thing that always frustrates me with my LEIs on snow is the valves get real hard when the temperature is below say 10degF. The pump will pop out of the valve some times and the valve will stretch if the pump is pushed in very hard. I would rather put up a ram air on these days. However if it is ...

Re: EpicKites 4G

My experience with 12m Screamer is the same as ShaveTheWhales. No fabric problems after a couple of years usage. It is my favorite kite to fly when powered up.
