Re: How often do you break bars? How's warranty?

Slingshot bars are definitely very durable and I like how solid they feel compared to lighter bars (like core's) which feel a bit flimsy. The only thing i have broken on a SS bar is the rear lines as they are thinner/weaker than the front lines. Weight savings is great but it needs to carefully acco...

Re: Board size for stronger winds

Correct. It's all personal preference. You can also change to a different board shape (aka more or less rocker). When the wind picks up I like to be on a more rockered board as it sits deeper, cuts through chop better and lands softer

Re: Front Roll Kiteloop Progession

I know what you mean. I over send the kite way past zenith and pull it late when I do the toeside frontroll kiteloops (trick Dimitri does often). Will have to try it for the regular front roll kite loop next time

Re: 1080p kite fooatge to 4k any video people here

Yes it is probably true that youtube doesn't compress 4k as much as 1080 but technically upscaling will not improve quality. You are welcome to try it and upload both videos it to youtube to compare if there are any differences in visual fidelity. Try HandBrake (https://handbrake.fr) it's an open so...

Front Roll Kiteloop Progession

After nailing down kiteloops I started learning frontroll kiteloops (boogie loops). In the beginning they felt very disorienting for some reason even though i have been doing regular front rolls forever and now they actually feel better the backroll kiteloops. Low to mid-20knt winds on a fast/smalle...

Sure you can upscale 1080p to 4K but it will look exactly the same with zero improvement in quality. Upscaling In its simplest form is where every pixel in the video will be "stretched" and the resulting video will look like 4K. This is basically what any normal video player does when you hit the fu...

Kiting in Long Island on a beautiful day in May with my crew. The wind was just right to practice some frontroll kiteloops and kiteloop late frontrolls without destroying myself. :D
