Re: Hacks for an older, poorly performing kite?

UPDATE - It turns out the old kite was actually 5 years old, so probably 300-400 hours on it. Where does the time go? So I bought a new kite, same make and model and put them side by side. The differences were stark. The older kite fabric felt soft and pliable like a bed sheet compared to the crisp/...

Hacks for an older, poorly performing kite?

So I put up an older kite the other day. Perfect wind. I probably could have gotten away going one size smaller. The kite felt baggy and slow and I could not stay up wind, even though I had plenty of power. Then I remembered the kite feeling baggy the last time I had it out. This was my go-to kite f...

Re: Best bankrupt?

Gen 1 Waroo was a game changer for me. First time I ever really loved the sport. I had dicked around with foils for a bit. Easy to fly, but no direct feel, delayed response. Never quite knew where it was or what it was doing in the sky. Overflew them once or twice on a hard across-the-window tack a...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Seems like the very title of this thread was designed to troll Marlborough Man into another Shocking Winds fever dream.

Who the hell buys carbon credits to offset travel?? Do you drop by the carbon credit kiosk next to the Starbucks?

Congrats Osprey. Well played.

Re: Kiting Choppy Water

+1 for Mako.

Also since you are riding a larger kite you were most likely dug in and moving at a slower board speed while still powering up wind. Slower board speed equals smoother ride.

Re: Snowkite Gliding - tell us why we are so stupid

I'm really glad this thread was resurrected. I missed it the first time and honestly it is THE most fascinating thing I have read in a long time. So much collective knowledge... and theory... and experience here. Very impressive. Makes me proud to be part of this knowledge and experience collective....
