Re: How to self launch a kite

Big sandy beach that would be nice, but for launching in not nice areas, drift launching much safer, as long as there is no big waves and water is not deep. Best way to drift launch is to hook in, take your kite into the water, HERES the kicker for a safer drift launch put the kite behind you head o...

Re: Pansh Kite Fans

My 10m Pansh Aurora 2, Flew out of the box just fine, with a old but new Best bar, Could have just used that basic bar, but Modded the bar for safety. 1 Mod was the 5th total kill line that line is longer and also added a longer leader to that bridle section. 2nd Mod was line added about .5m across ...

Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Ancient gear, 14m Best Waroo, 9m CAB CO2 thing would rocket you up.
Old boards 136 LF LFX and 136 LF Vision
New kite 12m Switch Element
China Foils they are cheap and they work.

Re: Trainer/Beginner kite advice

My family owns a cabin up in the Mountains of norway, were its superb conditions for Snowkiting. If you were where it was flat any 4m would be safe to pull a skier around with a little practice. Pansh has 4m non depower kites for 100E, you would have to set it up 3 line with a bar. I would go bigge...

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

Hate splash, and I look good in them, UV protection a plus. Stupid people wear their expensive sunglasses, I buy cheap and tie them to the wetsuit pull, or clip them to my rash guard. Lose a pair or 2 a year.

Re: What’s the best board you have ever tried?

Liquid Force LFX, bullet proof, good flex, POP, enough rocker for waves. Other Wood composite boards I've made, But I tended to break the really good ones.

Re: Got lofted once

Sounds like you were on a old C kite, it was 2008, in Vietnam, Bows were new. New kites will not relaunch usually without input. Brings back memories of the old days with a 5M Quadrafoil foil, and bring lofted. Early foil kites were even More dangerous. Newer equipment so much safer. Be safe and enj...
