Re: A friendly warning: don't kite in Singapore

I think it is common sense to ask locals about the rules and regulations. It was always a bit demoralizing for us who worked for a spot to see when people just came in to a local beach and didn't give a shit about the rules that were made to keep a spot open.

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

Sure, I've both foil & flydoor xl twintip. On low wind days (which we have plenty) I cannot imagine that I could go foil any better than flydoor-twintip. Foil and any sized TT cannot compare. The foil will win that game every time. If you can go on a TT you'll be able to go on a door (simple fact i...

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

The few times that I experienced lack of volume is when the wind dropped so much that I had very little pull when looping the kite, maybe only during 20% of the loop, kite barely staying in the air. And too much time between two loops or sines to stay longer on the surface and gain anything. The ki...

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

For the same wetted surface, assuming you can angle that floaty board as much as necessary , it will have the same benefits you describe for your low volume board in terms of starting on the foil. You're not losing anything on that front having some volume in the board. But on the other hand, that ...

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

This is a pretty interesting, albeit super marginal discussion. I can see both points on which I have thoughts..but of course I can be wrong / missing pieces. I can go either way..if just standing on the board is the way you go to start floating up, then sure volume matters. On the old raceboards th...

Re: Naish Dash 2: Does anyone knows when?

The spring release I think usually is out around March. I've not hear anything yet.

Re: light wind surfboard vs foil board

Having ridden both..and far more different boards than I care to mention foil is easily the type of equipment that gets you going earliest. Now when that is said and done, I do agree that what ever floats your boat (so to speak) is what you should be riding, I had fun in waves on a longboard in ligh...

Re: Kevin Langeree wins 2018 Red Bull King of the Air with Naish Pivot

:thumb: :thumb:
I can't say how stoked I am that this happened.
Langeree seems like such an awesome guy.

My only issue was that Jesse didn't make it into the final. I know height was 70% but the height difference wasn't that much IMO and his riding was a different dimension.

That is another great point. Kota absolutely gives huge advantage to natural footers.
Sure but at the end of the day you gotta work to be good all round. To be honest, these are professional kiteboarders...this is what they do.
