Really Core? Really?
In all fairness, this survey was outsourced to questionpro.com
I don't really see how CORE can be blamed for 3rd party screw up (especially as minor as session timeout)
just my 2 cents

Re: Why suicide leash isn't a good idea

Should not they make leashes that break away or detach at twice the body weight? Who's body weight? Mine, yours or that twig of a bastard that weighs 90lbs soaking wet? All you need is just a few small extension loops, made out of ropes with different breaking strength. Hardly adds anything to the ...

Re: WOO G's?

The G meter side of things is interesting. I have landed and got readings of 6+g, at my weight it would be nearly 700kg of impact. I can't imagine how any board would take that kind of load! I don't understand your logic. Basically, 6g in your case is how fast your board/woo stops, once it encounte...

Re: Rescued someone today from semi offshore setup.

Well done.. Good of him to follow saftey protocols and not kite alone? ....and in hypothermic conditions. What a dumbass. Would rather die than release his kite. Sounds like he was way over his head. you definitely have to be prepared to spend 30-60 minutes in the water, especially in semi-offshore...

Re: Best Way to Fly with Gear in 2017

golf bag trick does not work well in POP (Cabarete). They know and actively enforce it. I had to pay on my way back 2 last times I went there. Try to fly JetBlue, they only charge $50 (well $60 in POP as they come up with some stupid taxes and fees) The golf bag still works ok in most other places. ...

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 coastguard...

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).
