Re: so i tried kitesurfing, seems dangerous.

From what I see at our local spots, kitesurfing is definitely more dangerous than skiing, or similar popular sports. Over the last 2 years we had 1 fatality, a few serious incidents involving ambulance, a number of "close calls" when people were tea-bagged, thrown on the beach or required ...

Re: Downloop while boosting Big

A friend of mine got a video of it. In this case i was just doing a jump transition and in the air i thought of just trying the downloop. I know this is not a lot of height but it shouldn't make a difference right? Tips are very appreciated guys. https://vimeo.com/205216702 you don't seem to commit...

Re: Official Guiness world record for the highest kite jump not possible to use a WOO / PIQ

How can u trust an accellerometer..? :D :D its a toy Do you know that they use inertial guidance systems in ICBMs with ridiculous accuracy.. since 60s? The problem is it's hard to trust a closed device with unknown spec, verifiable calibration history, etc.. But using accelerometers is probably mos...

Re: 5G EpicKites

I am curious, why EPIC insists on depower straps?
It seems that almost everyone else converted to above the bar clamcleat design (with exception of 2 brands, pushing the clicker thing).

Re: GoPro views

I just bought one of these for Christmas... http://kitesurfmount.com/ It's made using a 3D printer which is pretty cool. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but when I do I'll write a quick review. I am sure it will work ok, but it tends to have pretty short "arms" which increases the r...

Re: Limit of height jumping

On that 16m jump: That sounds like a defective woo. One of the local riders had a similar problem. Once in a while he would get some super high (for him) reading with insane hang time (~9 sec).. Likely his woo died shortly. The replacement provides pretty sane results.. But yes, that guy still owns ...

Re: Limit of height jumping

My eyes don't lie to me, when I make a small jump I know it's small, I don't walk around the beach afterward like i'm the king of the air, I go and try to jump higher. When I make a medium jump, I know it's medium. Why? Because I can see that's it's medium. I don't tell myself I have made a massive...

Re: Limit of height jumping

If you want to see how high you're jumping just open up your eyes and look, if you're jumping higher you will know because you are higher off the ground. You don't need a machine to tell you this. Your eye will often lie to you.. It always feels more dramatic from first person's view than from the ...

Re: PIQ users - any issues?

woo has reliability issues - no doubt.. I am on the second one too.. but for me, the first one lasted about 100 sessions before it died.. the replacement is going strong, so far.. the other companies (trace, piq, xensr) follow into the same trap, imho: they have pretty good hardware, but sort of fai...
