Re: One kite for old school AND foiling

I need your help in choosing my next kite. For various reasons, I’d like to have only one kite.* If the wind is strong (50%) I go with the TT and mainly jump, do some rotations etc (nothing fancy but still slowly improving) For light winds (50%) I ride a zeeko green (all around freeride wing). I ca...

Re: Poll: Underpowered or Overpowered

I have always found Overpowered to be a confusing concept. I wonder if it is being used correctly. In my opinion, Overpowered is not the opposite of underpowered, but rather when you are powered beyond control...or? I would say the ooposite of underpowered would be well powered, or something like th...

I've spoken to some guys who use it and its made with 4 layers under the front foot, so I'd expect it's rock solid. Plus unlike the North boards the foam won't suck in water after it gets damaged.
and do you know if there is any difference between the 2017 and 18 apart from the looks?

thanks

Re: Lake Garda or Lake Como for Kiteboarding

Hi Joan, consider 8 to 15/16 knots average. It happens that it's blowing 20 or 25 (yesterday) but it's not so common. In that case, you can rent a small kite or board in one of the kite centers. You can check this link: http://www.centrometeolombardo.com/content.asp?ContentID=6552&ContentType=Stazi...

Re: Lake Garda or Lake Como for Kiteboarding

Hi, I'm a Como lake local. In Garda lake the wind, especially in the early morning, the wind is for sure better. The problem is that you have to book a taxi boat (and book it early during weekends!), since it's possible to kiteboard only in the southern part of the lake in the region Lombardia. In ...

Re: Cabrinha Apollo Rider Reviews and Experiences.

if you're not into foiling then no, it's a worse kite in almost every way if you aren't foiling. slow turning, very difficult to relaunch, prone to overflying. even for hydrofoil racing, it's not competitive against actual race foil kites. and if you aren't racing, there isn't much reason to ride a...
