Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

I'm sure Marc Jacobs fell into this category 2 years ago. From what I remember he changed from his Switch kite mid heat and borrowed a North Kite to finish the heat. I remember there was a lot of trash talk about how Switch not putting in the effort to capitalise on publicity because they should ha...

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

I also wear a surf hat instead of sunglasses. I don't need sunblock on my face either. I assume that if my face is not being burnt by the reflected rays from the water then my eyes should not be getting too damaged from the reflected rays either.

Dimitri definitely has got my vote, but I cannot find his video on the KOTA-site though?
It is on page 3 today https://rbkota.twoam.co.za/riders/page/3/

There are some really good videos this time. Dimitri is still one of my favourite riders. I hope we get to see him at KOTA 2019

Re: Help me understand Cape Town wind on the basis of this Windguru forecast

I would pack the 15m if you want to kite everyday. Head down to cape point direction for saturday/sunday. There are sharks everywhere but they don't really bother us. There was a fairly big one hanging around Blouberg the past weekend, it scared quite a few of the visitors out the water. Just watch ...

Re: King of the Air 2018 - All Info

Why Wednesday ? Forecast I'm looking at (windfinder) shows much better wind today. Also better in the weekend. Maybe just a bad forecast ? The organizers must be looking at the WRF forecast instead of the GFS https://www.windguru.cz/91 I've found sometimes the GFS is more accurate and other times t...

Re: King of the Air 2018 - All Info

There were six cameramen on the beach testing their stuff this afternoon.
Two cameramen per rider!!
I think the live stream is going to be good this year.

Re: WOO gen1 vs gen2 accuracy

Was it consistently one position on the board that was higher? Was the one in the centre higher or the other one (it looks like the higher jumps were registered on the Lance profile to me so wondering where this sensor was mounted) My woo was the one in the center which recorded higher. Gerhard's w...

Re: King of the Air 2018 - All Info

The forecast doesn't seem really exciting! :cry: who has the most accurate forecast? Windguru is the most accurate https://www.windguru.cz/91 , though you can add 5-10knots on to their forecast. The are busy setting up some sort of scaffolding stand thing, probably the judges tower. I would not wan...
