Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

^^It's a pretty crappy Idea. I invented a strap setup to do this back in 2000 or so. In those days our depower line would abrade and snap every couple sessions when routed through the bar so I made some nylon straps to do it instead. They worked great, except that you can't unspin your bar after a k...

Re: Airline Pilots, Kiteboard on Layovers?

Carrying stuff is a pain. If you're there more than 3-4 times a month I'd just buy a second setup to leave at your layover hotel. They all have store rooms and are pretty cool about crews leaving stuff there. Just hook up the front desk with some chocolates or whatever your home state is known for.

Re: Choosing an Impact vest ?

I've been looking for the Oneill Gooru kite, but they're impossible to find in the US. I even called Oneill and they said it was an EU only product.

Re: kite stretch

I have short arms and if fully powered I struggle to hold down the bar close to me. Tried shorts harness, now on ride engine that does not ride up. Depowering helps me with arms fatigue if that makes any sense. Actually it doesn't. If you have short arms it should be easier to get the bar close to ...

Re: kite stretch

No, you're fine. Canopies very rarely stretch in any significant manner and just riding depowered definitely won't harm them.

Re: Simmons Planing Hull

Basically everyone. Just look up threads for the Tomo Vanguard, Vader, and Evo. All are derived from Simmons' ideas/designs. And they work great.

Actually Carbon vs Wood is correct; full carbon boards are 100% fortified,
Really? :roll: With thiamine, niacin, iron, and part of this complete breakfast? I'd really hate to have to slap a glass of OJ, a bowl of oatmeal, eggs and bacon to have a complete board. :lol:

Re: Samsung Gear S3 for kiting?

^^It's not. Also not very waterproof. I was going to order one but the survivability factor is pretty crappy for what I do so orfered the Garmin Fenix 5x instead.

Re: Jumping with a smaller kite 7m Bandit 2016

Lately I’ve had a few stormy/gusty sessions on the 7m in choppy wavey conditions and I’m not getting on with jumping with it. I find I over take the kite and land on my side or the lines go slack and the jump feels like I’m whipped up fast, followed by a quick drop with little hang time. That's wha...
