guys guys.........especially marlbro whatever your name is, in 2004 you were probally one of the people hating the same thing...so called 'spastic attacks' 3 foot off the water now you have ruben lenten and the whole pkra pushing both big air combined with wake tricks. isnt this what you people wanted all along? i bet you cant even unhook, if you hate wakestyle so much go on kitescoop.com and moan there.
We just like c-kites because there rough and give direct power, even for big air, my nan could learn with one of the new kites...but you wouldnt know this probally, have you even flown a kite from 2003? ive been kitesurfing a good few years, people were on 2 line kites tied to the bar back then and it was allmost ok to do it aswell. some things will never change i will allways ride c's............

for the non haters...... CHECK OUT THE BEST YARGA 08' ive waited aaaages for a kite to go on the market like this again! its surely gonna rock if anyones got one fill us in!

You ask for it...I challange you to make the simplest trick showed in this video and post it....windsurf is a lot harder to perform tham kite.

Hey seaman, I think your worng, I dont think windsurf triks are harder to perform, I dont think that everybody cant do a megaloop like Lenten, or trow backmobe kite loops like Aron Hadlow or KGB like Kevin langeree, Plus there are only like a few tricks in windsurf. So I did Windsurf and was easyer to learn than the kite.

Oh dude. Where do I begin? Let's go back few years when I was in school. They were teaching us back flips with this harness connected to both sides of the wall. When we mastered that we would go on to jumping and flipping of the "horse" and onto a mattress and so on. So the level of difficulty in kiteboarding is really the prep stage to any real acrobatics. Again in windsurfing you really do it and you take your equipment around with you for the rotation. Handle passes? What a fuck is that all about? You bring yourself up using the lift from the kite and pass the bar from one hand to another. That must be a world fucking record of some sort for sure. :roll:

Any Un wanted C kites can be sent to me for inspection and testing. I will gladly test C kites for beer. Make sure your C's don't got the disease! send them out here to the C- cycling Center for immediate diagnosis.

This is not a joke! Really if you got an old C send it to me. I can assure you it will be put to good use.

hahaha dude your so stock in the 80´s hahhaha, i learn backrolls in the wake board I didnt pass for the mattress, but i saw a few girls training like that hahha, i guess bring your board and control the kite wile your doing a trinck dosent mean have the equipment around with you, but i guess you mistake the kite boading, my be you just watch a kid playing with a shark kite or something on the beach and there´s like only 2 or 3 rotacions to practice in windsurf, theres no many options like blind landigs or handel passes, so I do understand you, you will never get it, Its a something new you woulnt understand!!!!

You can do them until the sun goes down just don't call them acrobatics because they don't fit the description.
