Re: Wings construction materials

Re: Your worst kitesurf injury ?

Pretty pissant injuries really. Thats why kiting is so good. The risk to reward ratio is pretty good. depends on the style. I think over all the injury rate per participant is pretty damn low when you compare kiting to other extreme sports. Even when you consider the most injury prone style of the ...

Re: Your worst kitesurf injury ?

Oh. I forgot. Broke a toe walk across rocks on the way to land. Carried on kiting but damn that toe hurt for months. Kept hitting it..... Bit of whiplash learning to hydrofoil. If I count land kiting. Split my head open getting lofted into a fence land boarding. Compressed my spine buggying in sand ...

Re: Your worst kitesurf injury ?

Several could have died moments but no injuries taking me off the water for any period of time. The think the worst one was a twisted knee which took about 6 months to come right. But I kited throughout.

Have you tried it on a foil board?

Re: Windsurf Foiling to Rival Kite Foiling?

Why the hell would you want to foil in 50knts? Why not? I've been out in winds gusting up to 40 knots on my 4m and it was completely manageable!. I think you need to go to the pharmacy and purchase come cement suppositories. PS that doesn't look like 50 knots in the vid. More like 35. You foiled in...

Re: Painful

My technique is to ignore the weather forecasts web sites and visualize that its crap conditions when I cant kite so..... That way if I don't know Ive missed a aweso...
