Re: Boots: Any safety tips?

Dont use the handle pass leash attachment on your harness with boots ( or ever really). Its a lot harder to turn around in boots while you are getting dragged backwards by the kite. All so you could get pulled down and under while wearing boots. Honestly you should never hook your leash to the back ...

Re: What is a Backroll?

I have never tried woo 2.0 wake style, if it can detect how inverted the rotation is and name the trick accurately that would solve the issue ;) It's like raley, some people keep kite high and throw their leg up scorpion style and call it a raley. I am fine with it, but you can tell one looks bette...

Re: What is a Backroll?

You guys are funny! I stopped correcting people on names a long time ago. Ignorance is bliss and if all kiters think spinning under a kite is a backroll and you know what they are talking about then I guess it is a backroll. Does it look like shit? Well yeah but really if everyone is enjoying there ...

Re: Front or back heli loops for soft landings after jump?

I would say the kite loop heli-loop is softer when done properly. It's really about the timing of it makes it hard for using it for landing. I ride with a lot of speed so it is key for me to back loop the kite to catch that speed. I all so use a back loop to stop over rotating big sent front rolls. ...

Yes but the water is freezing there! Beautiful place to kite though. Sorry I'm a Texas boy and I hate cold water.

Re: Kitemare

Yes I agree with all of you on flagging and releasing the kite and I was constantly weighing my options up to the point of no return. Had I been in a more secluded spot I would have released the kite and swam in. A lot of the problem was lack of riding in those conditions. We have weird winds in our...

Re: Kitemare

I did not flag because by the time I was needing too I was all ready being dragged and did not want to take the chance of getting caught in my lines. Plus by this time I doubt the kite would have flagged from the seaweed and lines twisting as the kite got rolled in the waves.

Kitemare

So today I had a little bit of a scare. Finally got enough wind to hit the surf and was really looking forward to it. The seaweed has started to wash in and it pretty much happens every year. Now I am a very proficient kiter been doing if for 8 years now. Kiteloops, handle passes, blah blah. I'm pre...

Re: Suicide + flagout line leash combo

Thats fine to do that. Is it needed if your using a 12" leash no, but it will work the same not rigging suicide. Honestly the only time you would be actually suicide is if your unhooked. I don't think your going to do a lot of unhooking with a 12" leash. Your release will still work the same. I fly ...
