Re: List of highest boosting kites on the market

in my experience most kites boost about the same height, the main difference is their glide. the only kites that i haven't been able to get the same height on are the ones designed for tight pivotal turns, e.g. the old LF envy (not the new one, those are great at jumping), airush lithium, best cabo ...

Re: How long last your line cutting tool?

Mine has been in salt water, never rinsed off for like 4 years now and still looks brand new. I can't imagine carrying your line manager thing with me as an emergency tool when my current hook knife is flat and fits in a pocket in my harness.

Re: Single strut kite pressure

i cant imagine flying something as low as 6-8 psi, everything feels so much better if you pump the kite up rock hard. better performance, more responsive, more resistant to gusts, etc etc i think LF recommends their newer kites all be pumped to more like 10-12 psi because they have thin leading edge...

Re: Waterstart - directions kite and board relative to the wind

you dont need to worry about the exact angle you water start at. just dive the kite hard and let the power of the kite pull you up, and point the board mostly in the direction that the kite's pulling you. at the end of your kite dive, redirect it back up. at this point you should be standing straigh...

Re: No instructors in the area (Kansas City Missouri)

I would suggest that your best bet for starting out is to go to one of the spots when it's windy and see if there are actually people kiting. after your initial lessons, it is really best to be near other kiters in case something goes wrong, which can happen very quickly, especially on an inland gus...

Re: Best Roca - Anyone Try it yet

Any more comments on the Roca? ? I have Cabos in 5m, 7m & 9m. They are fast turning wave kites but poor low end & not good for jumping. Roca is obviously more low end oriented - does it turn fast enough for wave riding - how reasonable would an 11m be for low wind wave riding? roca is going to be t...

Re: North Jaime 2017

My experience is that a strap and boot board should not be the same length, you have so much more edge control with boots that it makes the board feel smaller. So if you were on a 139 with boots, you will probably want a smaller board for the same level of comfort with straps. Especially since the g...
