Groin strain injury

I've been kitesurfing for 4 years and after the past 2 weekends I've been experiencing strained groin on both sides for 3/4 days following my session :(

I ride strapless. Is this a common injury? Any tips on how to adjust the body stance and stretches?

Thanks

Printing on kites

Hi,

I'm looking for some advice for printing design/sponsoring on kites. I'm looking at printing on existing kites as custom made kites are too complicated.

What is durable enough ? Would sailmaker's spinnaker ink be good enough ?

Thanks

Re: Duotone...North who?

Re: Transitions - How ?

Thanks guys - oh absolutely it will click sometime... but for example since the foil is so much quicker than a SB, do I bring the bite up to 12 to slow down, turn the kite the other way and then initiate the foil turn ? Or just don't think about it and just DO IT !?

Transitions - How ?

Apologies in advance if this has been covered many times already. I'm up to approx 10 sessions so far on the Hoverglide (solo mast), I can manage super long runs without issues but I have no clue on how to do transitions ! I come from strapless surfboard and I thought I would progress quickly but th...

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

Currently running quad with a set of Futures 437 plastic. I like it so far. Better upwind than thruster.

Re: Eye protection -> tips on cheap and good-ish sunglasses for kiting

Here in Australia I lose my sunnies all the time when sailing or kite surfing so I now buy uv wraps from Bunnings. Cost 13 bucks and they are uv protective plus shatterproof.
