Re: Airton Cozzolino seals the deal in pumping Levante winds - Day 5 GKA World Tour Tarifa

Don't see any picture, Toby. For me it's just a black square. Also no action when clicking. Can you fix?

Re: The lightest snappiest surfboard for overhead waves?

as @knotwindy says, try the FW Vader. Personally, I would go for the kite version, because you will end up jumping it ;) , and double overhead is not too light on the material either :D

Re: Sri lanka july august

Good summary, Hendrik :thumb: A couple of additional details: * Kalpitiya Lagoon has a quite small area that is really flat (behind the Sandbar with the kiteschool). Depending on the day, it can get a bit crowded there. But there is the whole rest of the lagoon that is a bit more choppy, but nice fo...

Re: Sri Lanka Bentota any good?

Time of the year is certainly right - if there is a windy season there, it's now. This said, the further South you go, the less wind you can expect during South West Monsoon. I have no idea if there is any rental equipment in Bentota. Depending on how long you have for kiting, you could bring your s...

Re: Wheres good for summer waves?

@BrianMaiden: Check your facts and read carefully before you start a pissing match. I'm NOT promoting Kalpitiya, ok? If you do your homework, you will find that I said in many instances that Kalpitiya has no waves. I'm talking about KANDATHODUWA. Kandathoduwa is 40 km South of Kalpitiya, and gets SW...

Re: Anyone riding HB kiteboards?

I like the HB Anti for strapless tricks. I don't have one, have tried it from friends. It seems to hold up well.

For surfing (and my taste), the Vader is a better board.

Re: Anyone ride both Firewire Vanguard vs. OR Duke?

a hint to reduce the knee pain when riding the vanguard in choppy conditions: First accelerate fully, even if it means you loose a bit of height. Board really needs to come out of the water. Then move your front feet back a bit, carve into wind to go upwind, and keep the front leg very supple. If yo...
