Re: What's the best thing about kite surfing?

I think the best thing about kitesurfing is that it turns what 95% of the people in the world consider shitty conditions in to perfect conditions. There is also something super zen about the wind / wave combo that's hard to describe. I got out the other day after a super gusty session on my 8m torc...

Re: F One Bandit 2015 high Y or low Y

I would say absolutely you can. Difference is very small and if anything in low Y pull to the kite comes from better angle. This does not mean high Y and low Y bars are interchangeable because frontline/backline lengths may not be same (very probably they aren't) and they can not been measured in s...

F One Bandit 2015 high Y or low Y

Stupid question, but can i ride a 7m f-one 2015 with a low Y bar? Is it better with a high Y and if so, what is the distance from the kite to the Y?

Thanks 😀😀😁

I am super stoked to try this kite.

Re: Len10 - Captain Carbon

All of his best work was done around 2009-2013. Just before he jumped ship to Best. Nothing truly mind blowing since then on the water, of course his recovery from cancer is both impressive and an upbeat relief. He's an icon for sure, but echoing the post about how nothing has changed in the last d...

Boosting - bar motion and sheeting

I'm always looking to boost higher ... so I took a look at Lewis Cratherns videos on how to boost. In one of the videos he talked about how he sheets the bar out to where he can just feel the kite 'bite'. This sends the kite further around the window, then he gets 100% speed, then he swings the kite...

One hand? I see 2 hands used in the video.
My exact thoughts.

Re: 2018 Market forecast

I reckon Epic will bring out a Rebel / Edge type of kite. Racing and big air.

Re: 2018 Market forecast

Lots of lesson but very few will stay with it. Overall market will decease again and the used market will collapse further. Also, there will word wars on kiteforum about goofy shite. Shops pushing new gear deals on noobies and rich folk really drive the price of second hand kites down. I see on the...

Re: Core XR5 the best boosting kite ?

Try boots for a season. They change how you ride and help you boost. You can ride a bigger board and go faster with boots (i find)

Re: 7m 2013 edge vs 2016 6m park hd

That's what I figured, but I wanted to check with someone who actually knows. The torch has an almost limitless upper end, but man, when it's gusty, fuuuuck, it dances around the sky so much. It's scary.

I'd love a go on the XR5, but they are too expensive for me at the moment.
