Re: tube vs foil in light wind

Here we go again. Try searching this topic as it's been discussed ad nauseum with zealots on both sides of the debate. I have shitty quality light wind conditions here and prefer lightweight big tube kites (15m+) that won't tangle and bowtie. If you have steady winds others will tell you that a high...

Re: Hydrofoiling has ruined me a bit.

Same thing goes for me, but stick mountain snowkiting in place of foiling.

Re: Tips for Ragnarok?

Hey Big cane, Thanks, I appreciate your perspective. I'll grab the line extensions and get the legs and lungs in shape.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions
