Yes. Learning to gybe for an intermediate to advanced rider is no harder than many other transitions or tricks. The problem is the lack of good instruction in print or video or personal lessons (too many twin tippers out there). If very powered, head upwind to dump some speed. Look for a patch of sm...

I agree, I can't believe how bad kiteboarding looks on video and photos. All I see these days is one spastic looking move after another. You could barely tell the wipe outs from the moves.

Yes, be very afraid of sharks! Stay off the water! And watch out for those fresh water ones, they are merciless maneaters too.

Are these boards in fact slow or is the ride less intense (smoother, more comfortable) giving the impression that they are slower??

These guys are the "pros"?? All I saw was one spastic looking move after another. You could barely tell the wipe outs from the moves. Where is the fluidity? Where's the style? and how gay is that slider?

Your line is already damaged with the knot in it. It will snap at the knot. Soaking the knot will loosen it up and provide lube. Afterwards, gently hitting the knot with a hammer or pinching it with pliers will loosen the knot mechanically. Then, use a small bladed screwdriver (like a jewellers or e...

We have days (mostly in the winter) here where there is next to no wind down low and plenty of wind up at kite level to not only plane but boosting big too. Also, in certain wind directions some of our launches have just enough wind shadow to reduce the wind down low to next to nothing (drift launch...
