Re: Looking for the perfect kite spot to buy property

I actually own a nice lot right in La Venta if you're really interested. Water, power, and septic already installed. My only issue is that the wife hates Mexico, so I won't be building. ~100-200 meters from the beach with a sweet view in the middle of an expat community. PM if you're serious.

Re: Safest Control Bar

You can definitely do it that way, but if you've got 2-3 rotations it's MUCH faster to just give it a flip and let it sort itself out. Doing the hand over hand is a limitation imposed by the equipment. It's also nearly impossible to do when you're riding toeside down a wave with the kite behind you....

Re: Safest Control Bar

are you trolling? have you ever kited before? letting your bar go is the first thing you should do when you crash He's just pulling your strings. Nobody is actually stupid enough to seriously argue that you should never let go of your bar. :lol: I let go of mine probably 50-100 times every session....

Re: Harnesses and Broken ribs

When I broke mine, not the actual rib bone breaking, the soft harness allowed the spreader to pull up and break the ribs free of the costal cartilage. After that crash I switched to the RE and it feels significantly better. Less pressure on the lower ribs and no continuous pain like I have with my o...

Re: Naish vs Switch

Quite honestly I feel for the shop owners. They do provide a valuable service to a small portion of the population, but the fact is, no shop can afford to keep the inventory in stock to meet the needs of the vast majority of us. If a shop deals 3 brands and keeps all reasonable sizes in stock, in my...

Re: Naish vs Switch

Definitely Switch. I've owned and/or flown a bunch of Naish's and always hated the way they turn. Combine that with the mad $$$ premium they charge for the name and they get a definite pass from me. The one Switch I flew had the same stall/pivot turn when yarded hard, but at least they're cheaper. T...

Re: What unit do you use for windspeed ?

Well, with iKitesurf the current wind is given in mph BUT the forecast is given in knots, go figure. pita You can change that in the settings. Knots is pretty much the world wide standard for wind speed and it's what I prefer. A couple of countries use m/sec, but that's easy to convert, just double...
