Kiting on Mafia Island, Tanzania

Has anyone tried kiting on Mafia Island in Tanzania? Looking at going Dec/Jan and guess the wind would be similar to Zanzibar, but any information would be appreciated.

ILight weight designs are an exception - the single/no strut design development is new (last 4 yrs?).
The Airush One came out in 2011, so the idea isn't that new...

Re: Hello all help with rigging wipika air blast

There is two lines on each end of the kite with a pulley and a line on the back edge of the 2nd tube 7 tubes in total. I'm guessing I just use the end lines if so how does the pulley work and is the line on the 2nd tube just a fifth line flag out safety? The extra line was to improve relaunch but i...

Re: Scoring of tricks in GKA air games?

I never compare myself to others & keep winning prizes for some reason... those who compete with me don’t get it, but that’s why they can’t reach my level... maybe I’m too arrogant to compete in what I know I’m good at How are you winning prizes if you're not competing? Do random strangers just wal...

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

The mass wants to stay upwind, jump, do a Darkslide and Deadman. Where I kite you see far more people unhooking than doing darkslides, let alone Deadman (unless you mean that halfhearted lean back a bit and bend at the waist to bring your legs up to the same height as your beerbelly thing that seem...

Re: Switch Lineup

why would you take an H3 over a 0 or 1 strutt design ?
More versatile kite for riders who want something for more than just foiling?

Strapless freestyle. It just looks awkward - why use a surfboard when a wake skate will do the job better?

Re: Mutants for stupid conditions!

Inserts run straight down the centre line of the board, so straps could be set up symmetrically if you wanted. The space craft rides pretty much like a twintip with a slight directional bias - the other LF hippy sticks might work better if you're after more of an old school mutant experience.

Re: Shinn el Stubbo Zeeko Aluminium 90cm Hydrofoil

I picked up an el stubbo with a 70(?)cm mast last year. It was 2nd hand so didn't get any option on mast length. So far I've had maybe 15 sessions, if the water is flattish I can make maybe 25% of my gybes in one direction and 5% in the other. To be honest I don't currently feel that the shorter mas...

Re: What to consider when choosing kitesurfing brand.

Do people chose brands? Just buy the kit that works for you - the manufacturer is largely irrelevant.
