Re: How can you afford to start kiteboarding?

Like others said....learn to fly a trainer kite....get Jedi at that...then

Get a landboard and learn to ride that - you'll have all the skills then to progress to the water. Buy the progression video
And watch that a few hundred times. Then go for a lesson to put it all together.

Re: Downwash from a plane

I have vague memories of having a helicopter fly over me when kiting and being lifted off the water for a few seconds

Re: Anyone else literally shit themsleves on the water?

what's the problem....it's the sea....fish shit in it, seals shit in it, birds shit on it. Whales shit in it, one poop is not going to alter that.

Re: new flysurfer tube kite

don't need a brake lie - just pull both steering lines and it reverse launches. This has saved me in waves numerous times

Re: seen this yet? Kitesurfer hits paraglider

The kiter has just jumped - his back is to the hill - the kite is pointing out tp sea and the paraglide descends too quickly ....I don't think the kiter even saw that the paraglider was so close....case of unlucky timing.

Re: Chrono Launching Question

With the older FS kites the safety was a back line brake, you dropped the kite to leash and it would land on it's trailing edge - made land kiting really easy - only problem would be if the wind really picked up and you stake would go flying

Re: Chrono Launching Question

you haven't flown a speed 1 then .....

I've been flying foils for 13 years - hardly ever hot launch - except in ultra low winds when the kite needs to be pumped into the air. - always do a side launch - you can control the amount of air going in - nice n' smooth

Re: R1 - New Ozone Race Foil (Chrono Replacement?)

As a long term foil user - board selection is really important - a fast board will help you get the most out of a foil kite

Re: Kite turning speed vital for boosting

I used to ride an Flysurfer Psycho 1 9.5. - It did not turn ....i.e looping it was almost impossible to do - but it was quick across the window - and you would just send it to 12 and pull the bar in and get very good height
