Kite vid shot from quad chopper.

A different perspective to the usual go pro video's.

No it is not me in it or my video, shamelessly borrowed and shared because I liked it. :D

Re: What are the traits a wave kite should have?

We all like different things in a wave kite depending on ability, riding style, conditions etc. I think Peterheirman pretty much nailed the usual requirements though, drift, relaunch etc are a given. Turning speed is debatable, some like fast turning kites that they usually turn a lot and follow on ...

Re: Bucket method for rigging kite lines from a boat

Yep Ronnie that shows the drift perfectly and 9 times out of 10 the drift/launch is that easy. In my situation the boat is usually anchored and if the kite is placed at the right angle (just like in that video) it will drift back and to the side of the boat and pretty much launch itself and sit ther...

Re: Bucket method for rigging kite lines from a boat

We use a slightly different method for boat launching which seems to work well. Set up your kite on a beach or somewhere with the lines attached and laid out straight behind it. Roll up the lines carefully onto the bar, stop a few metres short of the kite and half hitch (clove hitch) the lines onto ...

Re: Switch Element 11 or 13 - which to complement BWS Noise

I'd go the 13 the 11 will be to close to your BWS. I have the 11 and 15 Element (as well as a quiver of Methods) and just had two weeks kiting in light wind waves in Bali, I took 9&12 Method and 15 Element but spent most of the time on the 15 Element, yes big kites aren't that much fun in the surf b...

Re: Which the best spot in Australia in August?

Western Australia is definitely not the best spot in Australia in August, no seabreeze at all and only the occasional gusty frontal windy day. There is pretty much no where in Australia were you will get reliable wind and waves in August. As Caesar suggested North Queensland, Yorkies, Port Douglas e...

Re: My Method Rocks!

Hi Pixelpedro, glad your enjoying the Method so far. I noticed you commented and asked a couple of questions on a youtube I posted of the Switch Method 7 and I have replied to your questions there. I have got to get around to editing and posting a few youtube vids one day, I'm a bit slack and prefer...

Re: C Kite Reviews

Can the Switch Combat be flown on 4 lines? I can't see on their website if the 5th line is loaded or not? The Combat can be flown on four lines but in the larger sizes a 5th line is recommended, as far as I am concerned adding a 5th line doesn't mean it is not a "C" kite, just as the Torch in the r...
