Re: Northern Carribean locations for kitesurfing

I also recommend Providenciales Turks & Caicos as a great spot. I have been there twice for 2 weeks each time and it is the only place I have ever been where I kited 14 out of 14 days both trips. Long Bay is a great setup, you can foil there as well, 100% sand bottom. If you start off just west ...

Re: Recent Condition Reports - Tahoe Area

Thanks @gwicke, I had the avalanche center but not the other too links. Hopefully the rain won't trash it too bad and sounds like plenty of fresh after that.

Recent Condition Reports - Tahoe Area

Heading out to Tahoe 1/13/17. Anyone have any semi-recent intel as to conditions at some of the main spots on North Side (Mount Rose Meadows) or South Side (Grass Lake / Hope Valley)? Sounds like they've gotten dumped and it's very severe avalanche risk, so I will be sticking to wide open spots, not...

Re: G'me a break!

I agree that straight on-shore through surf can be quite frustrating, been there, done that. I've basically developed the ability to water start in belly deep water, even though i have a full 42" mast. Sometimes it's required. I don't loop but basically just a straight 2 oclock to 10 oclock pow...

Re: Slingshot ghost whisperer/Adam withington big air video

I'm curious why multiple base mounting holes if they are selling with sliding track system?

Re: Matte or Glossy ?

Not sure if it's 100% relevant or not, but the gloss vs matte debate was basically solved (in the favor of matte) 30 years ago in surfboards, we eliminated the gloss coat to save weight and noticed no change in performance. My issue is that on my foil (Lift) they use a clear coat to obtain gloss fin...

Re: NSI Foot Hookers whats inside ?

I'm using one NSI Foot Hooker on the front but literally just use it for water starts and then pull my front foot out of it. I have heard of people pulling them out, but so far (5 or 6 sessions) mine seem very solid in the Slingshot Alien Air strap holes.

Re: Shorter - Longer lines ?

And let me add another tip for tacking.. foil kites make tacks easier. I assume you mean because you get more "lift" from the kite at the top of the arc, holding you weightless while you switch feet? I've been riding standard 24m and 27m North Bars and have been using 5m Q line extensions...

Re: Wind range of 1 kite + TT + HFoil

I prefer to speak with kitesizes and rider weight as knots are different for deferent people... I honestly think that the weight of the rider is much less of an impact when we are talking about how much you need for a hydrofoil, it's not displacement planing like on a TT. Obviously there is some im...
