Re: Why is everyone hating on old kites ?

All the stuff sharky says is true, but also kiters have a different relationship with their gear than you would with a snowboard. The time that you spend kiting in good conditions is super precious. Even if you are living somewhere that can provide good riding every day, day after day, you will want...

Re: Poll: Underpowered or Overpowered

Things are getting snippy here, definitions are kind of fuzzy. Some people enjoy being lit to extents that most would be considered overpowered, to me overpowered exactly equals no fun for the style I want to ride. Matteo is definitely onto something when he points out that most intermediate riders ...

Re: Pigmenting epoxy

I've used the mixol brand tints on some art projects, the colors are so condensed that you couldn't imagine them changing the strength. Like two or three drops to color six oz.

Re: Shoulders Forward?

I don't know what the tindy spot is but that's the key. You almost have to use that foot to put direct vertical or even tugging force on that spot to squirt the foil out forward of you, then the front of the board will automatically swing to meet your other foot. And the crowd goes wild! Wait, no cr...

Re: Shoulders Forward?

Hey Starsky, I wouldn't reply if I didn't think we aren't generally on the same page regarding fun vs showmanship, what drives long term sustainable stoke etc., so this is really just fine tuning but I like your style so I'll toss this out there. The opportunities around strapless riding include get...

Re: Shoulders Forward?

Re: shoulders forward..... Sorry, just cant dig it. like sitting or lying down on your foil. Novelty at best. Narrowing your base decreases agility. For any kind of dynamic carving, riding swell.... sideways stance is where its at! Can't say I agree about the novelty aspect, I do it all the time on...

Re: Referral for a good beginner kite instructor for the Bay Area

Track down Inanc Ino, he's a facebook user so available that way. Not sure what shop he's affiliated with down there but I think he's lined up with one or two plus kite camps etc. He's got a background as a gymnastics instructor so good with youngsters. He's not a take the money and run guy, has his...

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

Read my comment above. Well, one comment says it was for being mean to other users, one says it was for being mean to you, one says you deleted a bunch of personal attacks, and one says that Starsky is posting under a new name and that he's got to be nicer. If the last one is what you are referring...

Re: SupaEZ Where have you been?

I'm reviving this thread just to say that it really rubs me the wrong way that Starsky was kicked off the forum. SupaEZ too but especially Starsky. That guy had 4k+ posts to this forum. They ranged from helping beginners to deep dives on technique and gear and included taking measured swipes at some...

Re: Do I need to do lock stitching on a brummel splice??

Thanks to those who have posted on having success with not stitching. Any one had a failure with a no stitch brummel? Yes, but not kiting. I work on boats and have seen spectra slip having gone through twice and then tucking the tail. However the load was way higher than kiting would ever put on it...
