Re: Stupid question - what does overpowered feel like?

For many of us if we abided by that rule we wouldn't go out kiting very often. Yeah........never. We only have gusty/shitty/punchy wind. You get used to it, but you rig accordingly and use the proper equipment. That's why beginners don't do well learning to kite in places like this. The gusts freak...

Re: Switch Bag Any Good?

Yeah they're good. They were better when they were $40..... They will fit some bigger kites in there without having to do the extra zip expand-O thing (12m-14m). I prefer them to the stock bags that came with my Naishs. $75 can buy some pretty damn nice bags. Speaking of which, if there are any Pro ...

Re: Stupid question - what does overpowered feel like?

When you are wishing your arms were 5 inches longer and your ass 50 pounds heavier...... No more trim, arms straight out, trying to dig your butt into the water and still skipping like a stone = you should have downsized your kite probably quite a bit sooner. At that point, just do whatever you can ...

Re: Flysurfer Cronix still worth buying?

It's a quirky kite that is a bit of an odd duck. I was high on them when they came out. (3-4 years ago?) They were fast, turned quick, pumped up quickly, drifted decently and could jump well. Downside was the jumps would jerk you hard and high, then drop you like a rock. Also the kite did some funky...

Kayak airfare app.

Hey do any of you use Kayak's app for watching flight prices? I installed it last fall for watching ticket prices to the Turks this winter. I set a few different dates and alarms for when the tickets dropped below $600 and I never was notified. I know the tickets DID drop a few times as one of my bu...

Re: go-joe

Just a tip on body dragging, not sure everyone knows it, but for what it's worth: When body dragging I extend my non-control bar steering arm straight out, extend/straighten my legs and go full on Superman style. You can crank upwind. I'm passing Foilboarders upwind on my body drag tak......No but s...

Re: Abaco Beaches

Bill, I was there in 2011 on Guana Cay. It was an awesome place to kite! Do you have access to a boat? If yes the really cool places to kite were Scotland Cay and Fowl Cay. Scotland is a very shallow bay/inlet that is beautiful. You need to have the correct wind direction to work. Fowl Cay is just a...
