As a matter of fact, nothing comes closer to the constant pull of a cable as a large foil.

"But wake style or most 'new school’ kiting styles are inspired by Wake Boarding and Cable Park riding anyways. And if anybody has been Wake Boarding or been to the Cable Park they would know that there is more bar pressure than most kiters can handle. Example: if you can do a back roll on a kite, doing one behind a boat is at least 3 times as hard and painful if not landed."

just another inferiority complex post. :allbegood:

good riding. while he may have been wearing boots its kinda tough to call it wakestyle since it was all kite high. more like PKRA style riding if you ask me.

Lets remember skill lies with the rider. not the kite...

I wish those flysurfers were cheaper. Wouldn't mind having a speed 3 15m of my own for the light wind days.

At 53seconds and 1:20 the rider is riding an rrd kite, and this is not the only case in this vid.

So using this clip to prove that foil are good on wakestyle is not a good choice i think :jump:

For real!! That is definitely an RRD LEI dipping into the shot on both occasions!

BUSTED!

Thought I do think the riding is plenty wakestyle enough to looks pretty sweet. They get a few pretty stylish grabs in there generally some nice flow right through to landing.

I also have nothing against foils.

Effectively, at 16sec, 53sec, 1:07 and 1:20 it is not a Flysurfer kite. Strange but they where doing really good anyway on the Flysurfer kite :thumb:

Such a waste...

Around here you would be called a kite whore with that kind of reputation.

Of course around here everyone is a forward thinking environmentalist douche that thinks you're shit unless you recycle everything and wear hemp clothes. Ahh the Pacific Northwest. :cool2:
