And what does that have to do with kitesurfing?
A fair amount of kitesurfers here in the Netherlands will not go kitesurfing without using wiet (weed) before kitesurfing. Makes them waaaaay more creative, and they have waaaay more guts that way...
So they say..

Re: Swap Gong Allvator & Moses Fluente

The Gong SUP/surf wing is a revelation. So slow; toe-side and heel-side turns are trivially easy, especially with a fast inflatable kite. I feel like I've progressed more in 2 sessions than the previous 2 years: tacks, gybes seem within reach for the first time. @James: Nice progression! I am consi...

Re: Foilers vs Kiters proportion now

It may also a distribution thing. A lot more foils available in U.S. than Europe. I doubt it that there are a lot more foils available in the US. I also doubt that if there would be more foil brands available in the US it would make any difference on the number of hydrofoil riders. There are probab...

in Cumbuco Brazil with good winds you have around 80 TT, 20 Surfboards and 5 foils.
This is about what you would see on a Beach in the Netherlands. But some of those 80 TT and 20 SB riders will be on a hydrofoil on a sub 15 knots day..

Re: Small Kites who is making them?

I have picked up the latest model of best Roca on clearance in 4m for 249€ last year.
Did not use it that often as I tend to prefer waveboard and 6 or 8 or Mako and 8 or 9m when it is well over 25 knots

Re: Light Years Ahead - The Airush Ultra V2

REO. In 6m kites there is no point to one strut. Canopy stability is more important than weight in higher winds. Reo is known for mellow loops What does an unstable canopy do? Cause the kite to suddely shake you out of your footstraps? I rode strapless :D So? Unstable canopy pulled you of your stra...

Reading this I am wondering a couple of things; What is smoother? I mean a smoother kite...what does it do differently? More alive and faster .....
