Re: Skyline / Strawberry snow conditions?

Would anyone care to explain the really good NW wind that blows down out of the canyons like a leaf blower at Strawberry? I am guessing but is that katabatic wind? Not good for gliding as it blows downhill but so solid. Does that happen very often?

Re: Snowkiting - are people losing interest?

And regarding sled tracks: how about when the wind dies, and your a mile from your car? Walking back on a sled track sure beats post holing all the way. Wish they all ran clean burning 4 stroke motors though. Do they still hold drag races up Boscoe's Hill?

Re: Snowkiting - are people losing interest?

No wind on the coast either. No clearing wind events at all. But what about this big blizzard about to dump on the eastern seaboard? I hope RVRat gets a week of powder turns out of it. John, keep us posted.

Re: Snow/Water Foil Question...

"Get a compressor I carried one around for years let the kite pump itself while I sat in the car warming up. Then I figured out that pumping the kite was a better way for warming up after the hour ride in the car to the kitespot." So true "Trees are another thing to consider if you put a foil in a t...

Re: What's the big deal about unhooking?

Starsky is always objective, don't rag on him. He is honestly stating his own perspective, whats the use in discussing topics if we all pretend to share the same opinion? Where I kite (in California, always waves), there's one guy who unhooks in the waves out of hundreds of others who remain hooked ...

Re: Beginner friendly places in CA

Yeah its true that on certain snow-kite spots in the mountains there can be light, steady, 16-18 knots of thermal wind and its absolutely perfect for learning during winter. But to be there when that happen requires knowledge, you can't safely show up and hope to wing it, because during a storm (or ...

Didier Botta: Into the Wild Cezallier

I just stumbled across this kid destroying the Alps late last spring. I'd love to see the entire raw footage of this session in ultra slow motion to try and get some idea how he does it. Favorites are at 1;05 and 2;23 for some examples, but its all really good and very inspiring. The edit and music ...

Re: 500 km solo dowinder in Brazil

It sure does give you an idea as to what such a big downwind adventure might really entail. I always envisioned myself cracking lip indefinitely for miles upon miles, not rounding massive outgoing tidal jungle river mouths pouring piranhas into the sea. Hats off to our hero, but you won't catch me p...
