Re: Transitioning from a TT to a Surfboard! What do I need to know?

Anyone else admit to actually liking a TT more than a surf board?

Re: Gear advice for 6’2” 210lb guy

I prefer the 15m Contra over the 14m SB
It doesn't have the heavy feeling of the 14m SB

Re: Cabrinha Contra 17 or 19m?

I had a 15m and a 17m Contra. 15m was by far my favored kite and I'm 116Kg 17m was just park and ride, an OK kite, but offered only very little extra low end. If you get a chance try the 15m Contra at your weight I wouldn't go bigger, diminishing returns. Good luck with whatever you go for. quote=Bj...

Re: Kite company's are out of their minds

You can buy a decent mountain bike for the price of one kite and not sit on your hands waiting for wind. But then you'd be shitty mountain biking instead of kiting? I could buy 1250 mars bars instead of a kite too but then I'd be a fat git with no teeth instead of a kitesurfer. Really? You must thi...

Re: Transitioning from a TT to a Surfboard! What do I need to know?

Two things I noticed when I first got on one: a. It sails off into the distance when you fall off - compared to a TT. Your body dragging will improve! b. They can be a b*****d to turn, without falling in. No straps in the way will help. Other than that, riding it is fairly instinctive. Good luck! I ...

Re: Driving at night in Brazil

I would assume UK residents only. I'd suggest searching for a similar cover in your area. My view is; excess insurance soon becomes worthwhile. Last year I had an inspector on her knees with a torch from Enterprise, trying to find a some damage - I was at Heathrow London in a perfect condition car. ...

Re: You love it - SUP and kite shop in Dusseldorf - Do not buy!

I have bought many items from them over many years. Yes, their admin is slow and poor communications, however some great prices. They post up kite trip pics on their Facebook website far quicker than anything else. I’m sure you will get your refund, I get the feeling it is a part time shop? I saw an...
