So I wouldn't go as far to say 90 degrees and back, if it went that far chances are it would be on the wane. But 15-35 degrees are fairly common, again depending on the day and the direction. It doesn't always blow exactly the same way. Once your on the water and say out in the middle it aint a prob...

Hi, I've seen arcs being used in the gorge, but all the qualities that make the kite so use friendly elsewhere (steady wind sites) unfortunately make it difficult for gorge use. Two reasons. First the wind varies in power fairly quickly, this in itself the arc copes quite well with, but Secondly the...

Having read through this thread and separated the sensible from the shall we say less than.. I would have to say the title demonstrates a typical U.S. "something or someone else is always responsible for things going wrong, so lets blame someone or even sue them" This actually discourages manufactur...

Hi, just come back from two weeks out there with the breadknife & kids. It's a wonderful Island, locals real friendly, the kite spot is cool, just check in with Kevin and stick to his guide sheet, cos they don't want to get banned and they are quite close to the Airport. (turn right drive several hu...

Never mind apologies, a little explanation is what's required, so... 1)A high aspect ratio kite any brand it doesn't really matter, has to be ridden fast to develop it's power, that's why they work, like a high rev engine, the power only cuts in when the revs are achieved.

Australians

You can believe my words, or listen to a Takoon sponsored rider from Portugal, who probably got to be good enough thanks to his Fuels last year, but because he's using a seat harness is loosing speed by not being able to edge hard.. more to learn Pe...
