I dunno - seems to me charging straight along a wave, on a TT, at speed, through an area with surfers waiting in the line-up isn't kosher.
Yeah that's what happened. With kilometers of the same wave to the right & no surfers

Re: 4 meters waves yesterday at tarifa!

They're not mates, there was quite a bit of unfriendly fire afterwards. The kiter fucked it up, because he went kiting on a surf spot, instead of going 500m - 9500m down to the right. Same same conditions for 10km of beach that day, and the idiot choses to wave his dick on the surfers. Completely un...

Re: 4 meters waves yesterday at tarifa!

Balneario is a surf spot on big days, kiters windsurfers SUPs stay away and simply go a bit further down direction Valdevaqueros - there's 10km of waves for everybody, no need to be a pain to the surfers. This is common since the beginning of times. So yeah, the kiter was being an idiot for no good ...

Re: Kite Surfboards vs "normal" Surfboards

...The simple definition of a thruster is a 3 fin configuration with a larger double foiled center fin and smaller toed in side fins with flat to 60/40 foiled side fins. Ah OK I see, you were really referring to high school level. Sorry, my bad, I thought you had analyzed and modeled the thruster s...

..I spent lots of time trying to create a theory on the differences between the two. I only was successful in defining thrusters, and coming close (possibly) to getting a grip on the quad.
I'm listening. Define thrusters if you please.

Re: Kite Surfboards vs "normal" Surfboards

...Thrusters are high school physics. ...Quads are Grand Unified Theory. You want to call fluid dynamics "high school physics"? Go ahead then, depict and describe the flow around a thruster, and resulting forces, considering the flow around the board rail and along the bottom, in 3 common situation...

Re: Almayate / Hornillero (Spain) - kite rent/hire

There used to be a shop in Nerja called Aloha Riders, been there last time in 2013, not sure if they still exist. Anyways, Costa del Sol is not really big for renting gear. Tarifa is better but 2.5 hours to the west. If you can bring your gear I'd suggest you do that, or make sure you speak to a sho...
