Re: Felt like I Nearly Drowned

Pounding waves with probably strong currents, and winds where you need to go out on a 14m sounds like a bad idea / not fun session to begin with. If the kite was backstalling like that, you were probably choking it by indeed pulling in the bar too much, and light winds make this even more likely. Ne...

Re: 2018 Naish Slash

Talking about last year’s Slash & Pivot, but without having flown a 10m, there are clear differences between both kites, they definitely fly and feel differently. If you have to chance to test them back to back, you should. I think there might be a chance that the Pivot is the most efficient size he...

Re: Vietnam Kiting, Please Share Your knowledge

I did a road trip in April 2013 from HCMC up to Hong Kong, was pretty sweet. Great food, parties, and everything cheap. Spent 12 days in Mui Ne and was out almost every day - beginning of the day 12m, afternoon 9m. 2 days with winds too strong for my 9. This was in april, end of the season, so it do...

Re: How good do you have to be to foil?

I personally think 2 things will help you progress quickly on the foil: - strapless experience - riding the board flat and on the fins without edging - blind kite control - so you can fully concentrate on board skill Lastly, mentally prepare yourself to really invest time to learn and sacrifice some...

Re: First flatwater experience!

For TT riding, flat water or flat sections with clean kickers are underrated in my opinion. Everyone is always focusing on how windy certain spots are - wind is great, but if I have to choose between windy and choppy, or a bit less wind and flat sections, I'd choose option 2.

Re: PSA: Check your harness - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

Had a similar problem with a Manera harness - not the teeth part, but the "smooth" part right next to it. Harness was used for 1.5 seasons maybe, looked fine, until I noticed the strap was hanging on with 10% of its threads. Took a picture and send it to the dealer to see if I could get a new strap,...

Re: GoPro Hero 7 coming soon....

Currently on the Hero6, which already has image stabilization. Nice images but the damn thing freezes up so often while riding. Have already put in a more expensive SD card but it still happens too often. Anybody else have this problem?

Re: 30.4m Jump on Woo?

If pro's in CT don't get up to 30m on a solid 40+ knot Cape Dr. wind with big clean kickers, I highly doubt this guy did it in Brazil's tropical 25-30 kts winds and flat water/no kickers.
