Not sure what he's using for wax but mostly he's just riding in 30 knots of wind. Once you get up over 25 knots boards stick like glue if you have the angle right regardless of traction.
I second the "great vid". Almost makes me want to leave the coast for the Gorge.
you've convinced me to try that. Im kiting in 13mph in san diego though. I need my monkey wax !Matteo V wrote: ↑Tue Aug 29, 2017 5:10 amI second the "great vid". Almost makes me want to leave the coast for the Gorge.
For a no hands backroll, try not doing such a hard initial movement upwind when starting the roll motion while on the water. If you push too hard upwind early on (initiation) then the kite catches you and yanks you downwind somewhere mid roll. Strapless is all about limiting the power of a move. If you are used to straps, you are used to going for the power instead of avoiding it.
And here we go with the strap fight!
Ummmmmm. .....where the fuck were the waves???halloi wrote: ↑Wed Aug 23, 2017 5:01 pmi have a BEST Cabo quiver and fumkin' love that kite!
are there kites out there that jump higher? i bet.
kites out there with better depower? probably not.
if you surf waves get a wave kite, if you ride freestyle strapless get a wave kite, if you like low bar pressure get a wave kite,
if you like boosting to the moon without hassle on a tt get a freeride kite.
just my 2 cents.
and because i love this clip of the Cabo im gonna share it with you guys ; )
ps: yes, hes using some punt on that board
