Re: Waist and seat harness in the same session?

Yep, if I've not kited in a while, then go on a kite trip, I may take both harnesses as my abs will ache with just a waist harness.(I know I should keep in shape, do exercise blah, blah, I'm fat and lazy!) Switching it around really helps. Doing what feels good helps. Seat is also good for, if its h...

Re: 7, 9 and 12 for a 100kg twintip rider

Learn golf, you really can play in no wind! 116Kg 10,12,14,16. Switchblade 10 & 12. Velocity 14 and 16m If i was your weight (again), in the winds I kite generally, I'd go 9, 12, 15 and have a a couple of TT boards, My only tip from the 3 pages is; make sure you try a 14m Switchblade before you buy ...

Re: Kiteboard stiffness and how to describe it?

Airush do an FMS rating, worth a Google.
Though I suspect this only tells a part of the characteristics, given tip flex and a host of other things designed to make a board perform.

Re: Core kites and kiteboarding industry sales this year

G I’ve baited this ‘End’ on other threads and I’m beginning to think it’s a Bot! It can’t be human. It’s a geeks sixth form project. What is more worrying, I see do gooders telling me to ‘stop it and grow up, blah blah, yeah you know who you are. Anyway keep letting those top secrets out and someone...

Re: under a 9m better a 6 or a 7m for twintip riding?

Matteo you’ve been holding out on me! Irie John found some snaps! You cheeky monkey. Anyway they are now part of my collection, I can gaze at them at leisure. Me on a rail, why would I go anywhere near something hard when kiting? It doesn’t sound very sensible to me. Mind you if I kited with you, yo...

Re: under a 9m better a 6 or a 7m for twintip riding?

Oh Mateo, thank you for not letting me down. Your wisdom and ability to make us think outside the box is incredible. Those that kite with you must be truly blessed. The world does not need any more TT riders and they should be informed of the thrills that lay ahead with surfboards and foils. Do you ...

Re: Info need on kite bar

Interesting to see Cabrinhas response. Not managed to get a clear answer consistently on this before. So you need one bar, adjustable size, short throw, low V, cheap and in full working order. You may just want to call Silent Sports and see if they can help: https://www.silentsports.com/Kiteboarding...
