Re: Darkslide back foot keeps coming out

Weird. Maybe twist your foot more so it is locked in and don't slip out. Maybe it helps if you concentrate to slide the board instead of dragging it. With the slide you might twist automatically. And at the end of the day you want to slide it anyway to make it look nice, not dragging wildly behind y...

Re: Difference Flysurfer Speed5 vs Sonic2 18.0?

95 kg.

Tried the S5 18 in lighter wind already. Downloops after slides are not possible.

But I would use it for air with rotation tricks...since my Rebel is too fast for those tricks I want to do. Need a slow gliding kite to be able to land them.

Re: Calling all fatties!

Agreed. Be very careful in shallow water specially with your weight. You can break your neck easily. And the bones very easily!

Difference Flysurfer Speed5 vs Sonic2 18.0?

Would be interested in hearing a difference in percentage between the two kites:

Re: Tantrum / inverter frontroll- any different?

A Brazilian once did a beautiful Belair with a downloop.
While he is upside down the Kite is low behind him. Spectacular!
Never saw a video of it...maybe anyone who can do it can film and post it?

Surfers getting barreled, Airton Cozzelini and Matchu Lopez doing aerials further down the line. Se...

Re: Loose straps or tight (for a beginner who broke self)

I use mine huge. This way the foot can twist inside the strap...so if one foot gets out the board can twist around the foot, and not break my knee. But then you need to ride with the foot a bit twisted to lock yourself in. No problem for me. Just play around and see how big you can ride them comfort...
