Re: Is 16m too much for me?

Something people never do think about is air density when picking out a kite or kite sizes. I'm 190 lbs and I will fly my 17m Turbine up to 15-16mph. Much higher than that and unhooking becomes too hard. Our air is not that dense on the Gulf Coast due to the humidity. If I was in a drier climate the...

Re: Which boots fit liquid force boards?

Yeah I got to look at them before they even hit Surf Expo. One of the locals is very good friends with one of the LF reps and he was trying to sell me on the new track system. I just have had a habit of pulling out tracks when SS had them. SS dropped the track as well as Hyperlite so I'm pretty sure...

Re: Which boots fit liquid force boards?

There are some boots that will not work. CWB has a pair that use four screws like a snow board boot. All so the new boots Liquid Force has for their track system cable boards might not fit. All others should fit. Industry standard is now 6 inch both wake and kite.

Re: Reinvent the kite comp

http://www.pointschase.com/index.html This is a amateur comp they do with the cable parks. It would work very well for a set of regional event if it was hosted by local shops in an area. In the USA for instance you could do the Gulf Coast, East and West Coast, and the Great lakes for your regions. B...

Re: Reinvent the kite comp

Get rid of timed heats in freestyle. Either do a downwind coarse where you go around buoys or just have an attempt limit. If they crash their run is over and just do best of 2 runs per heat. If you wanted to get really fancy riders could submit their runs and have a total score possible based on tri...

Re: Why doesn't everybody side rig their lines in launch position?

I hate when people don't wind their lines on the beach after a session. It can delay your session if a tangle occurred... it's a question of respect towards other. I would say this is more of a spot problem. My local spots we don't have to roll up due to volume of kiters vs the room we have. There ...

Re: Why doesn't everybody side rig their lines in launch position?

I rig as you say Plummet. I guess if you inflate the kite first and attach lines after you walk them out then you don't have any problems. I all so double check my lines before I ever get ready to launch.

Don't you mean straps and pads? I remember seeing Lou wearing them way back when he was cutting down boards and basically creating freestyle.

Re: Graphene tech video

Lol Graphene is going to revolutionize so many industries, but correct me if I'm wrong it's still extremely expensive to manufacture.
