Re: Core Kite safety question

I like all my safeties to work exactly the same way. Release correctly if it's nuking or barely windy. I have been stuck against the sea wall many times before in very light wind conditions where there's not enough wind to keep the kite in the air but enough wind to drag that kite right into the sea...

Re: Core Kite safety question

stars just a small correction. From what I have read from the kite manufacturers and designers it was NOT the safety issue which caused them to switch from mini-5th to single center line flagging. From what I heard I believe many of the kite manufacturers were perfectly happy with how their bridles ...

Re: Drag launch tips, rear line tangle

have you tried doing a reverse launch? If the line is caught just barely under the wing, a reverse launch will pull it free, while a regular launch will give you a death loop. In a drift launch I usually put it into the reverse launch position first, pop it an inch or two off the water just to check...

Re: Kiting ban in Saudi Arabia

everyone should be allowed to kitesurf no matter where you are from or who you are. Maybe if Hitler had kitesurfed he wouldn't have been so angry.

Re: Getting into the boots using soap or lubricate?

your boots are too tight. You can stretch them out but I would probably just buy new ones.

Re: Riding on sand with boots

Re: What bar size would work on a 17m turbine?

I realise the kite would need more input to steer and would be slower to react on a slower bar but is the kite still flyable or would it just become to hard to manouver. yes you can fly it on a smaller bar. I would suggest if using a smaller bar to use longer lines. Yeah yeah I know people say that...

Re: Nick Jacobsen jumps of a building again

scariest thing about these videos is he isn't even rigged full suicide. Be careful Nick! I don't mind you doing these viddies but it would be terrible for the sport if you went splat.
