Re: Leash carabiner opening after unhook trick?

This has happened to me twice since I started listening to kiteforum and attaching my leash to the D-rings on the side of my harness instead of the handlepass tube on the back, which is much thicker. Went back to attaching it in the back and it hasn't popped off since. If it's popping off at the chi...

Re: Hydrofoil choice

The LF foil boards are wakesurf boards, not surfboards.... so they will work for waveriding but probably not the best since they don't have much (if any) rocker. They're designed to ride knee high wake behind a boat. There are a options I've looked at that look somewhat decent, my favorites are the ...

Re: How to self land core sensor pro bar

For that much wind I'd say it really depends on how well the kite likes being pulled down, I've flown some kites that are pretty much impossible to self land like that without falling on their back, and others that just plop right down with no problem. You could pull the safety line, you just need t...

Re: How do you dismount?

I usually ride with the board on the water and take my feet out of the straps (if I have straps on the board) and cruise in very slowly with my kite high until the wing bumps into the sandy bottom. If I rode somewhere that had rocks or I had a carbon foil, I'd just hop off in deeper water and body d...

Re: Forearm Burn - What to do about it

You need to adjust your technique, you shouldn't have a deathgrip on the bar. Ride with your fingers loosely around the bar with your thumbs on the bottom for leverage (not wrapped around). Your hands should be very relaxed and causing no strain at all, whether you're wearing gloves or not. Bad: htt...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

What are the stats on the kite weight? I was really hoping E6 would be a tuned up version of the E5 that cuts some weight out and increases stability... not a redesign with 5 struts :(

Re: New ebook: A standardized warm-up for kiteboarders

I noticed you bounce a lot in your stretches. I was taught this is very bad for your ligaments, and only to do slow extensions. Is there a new recommendation for doing it your way?
