Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Mid June in the San Juans. Still some patchy snow left but maybe only north side kiting from here on out. Anyway, it still beats liquid.

Re: OR Rise or Razor for beginner

Agree completely. I love my 12m Razor but you have to "stay ahead of it". 12m Flite is amazing and will help a beginner stay upwind. Nothing wrong with a 12m Prodigy either.

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

The last storm has helped to keep things covered at Lizard Head. The snow is still pretty fun. The wind today on the other hand, yikes! I am a connoisseur of junky wind and let me tell you this stuff was dog balls. One second the kite would fall out of the sky, the next second a gust would literally...

Re: Tips for Ragnarok?

Hey Capt, Yeah, it's a BIG course! I think The limited number of finishers is by design to make the event pan out as "hardcore". They cut us mortals off at 5 hours. I think with another 2 hours and a buncha redbulls I could have limped in with 5 laps. The top guys like Gurke were out there going SO ...

Re: Tips for Ragnarok?

Ragnarok was a blast! Beautiful day on the Hardangervidda plateau with winds clocked up to 44 knots. Being a part of 350 kiters screaming off the start line towards the goat rodeo known as Gate 1 was unlike any kiting moment I've ever had. That place is the perfect kiting playground on a scale that ...

Mickey that look like an amazing spot, nice work! My afternoon work break today was a little more pedestrian but a lot of lit powered fun still.

Re: Tips for Ragnarok?

One last plug for advice. Heading to Norway in 2 weeks! Any word about general snowpack? Wondering if I should take beacon-shovel-probe for pre-race day adventures?
