Re: Questions regarding kiteloops

it sounds like you need to check your trimming.
Does you kite back stall in low wind with bar in?
Maybe make steering lines a little longer?

Re: Kiting in Cabarete while learning coding

I tried working remotely from Cabarete for a month for my current job. To be honest the internet speed & consistency there sucks (for VPN/remote desktop and stuff...).

Re: Kiting in Cabarete while learning coding

Another developer here, with 20 years in the field. I hate to rain on your parade, but prospects for getting a real coding job w/o a degree these days are pretty slim, imho.

Yea, it's not really about the kite. It's the rider and conditions primarily.
yeah.. can someone show me successful 20 meter jump on Cloud or any other "wave only" kite?
Any kite can get your high (lofted or controlled) but you'd need reasonably high AR to land it smooth, imho.

Re: Core XR4 17 m2 versus Ozone Zephir

Zephyr has great wind range but height and hangtime are not it's best qualities.
If you live in a gusty area where the wind can range from 8 to 22 kts during the session then Zephyr should be your choice

Well.... I can get the board off. How do you get it back on?

Tail grab and it slips out of my fingers.
