Re: First flight with trainer

you can do all kinds of drills but it's still different from flying a regular kite that it doesnt translate 100%. id suggest just flying the trainer for a couple sessions until you feel like you've mastered it and can fly it practically blindfolded, then you can start your lessons. Something like 5-...

Re: Best Roca vs TS - which one to choose?

I don't know what the actual measurements are, but I'd call the normal sizes medium aspect, the lightwind ones (17, maybe 15?) are higher aspect. The big ones don't fly like typical high aspect kites though, they are pretty quick and light feeling. The 17 roca is the first big kite I've flown that I...

Re: help choosing my 1st gear.

8-15 mph is rough. You probably won't be riding at all until it's at least 14-15 mph, especially as a beginner for the first year or two until you learn how to be efficient. If that's the actual wind speed where you live, you're going to be looking at whatever the biggest kite the shop sells, someth...

Re: Your worst kitesurf injury ?

Worst injury in 5 years of kiting: got a pretty bad hematoma on the top of one of my feet when the rest of my body fell off the hydrofoil and my feet stayed attached. Thought I might have broken a bone (doc looked at it on the beach) but it ended up being back to normal after a couple of days and we...

Re: Kite Loops

I just remembered I made a video from the downwinder I learned kiteloops on with a 12m a few years ago. Maybe it will help in some way with pulling the trigger on the loop since crashes are very non-spectacular.

Re: Choosing equipment

I think the Wow is a much better deal than that park assuming you're talking about canadian pesos and not USD. definitely dont get the gambler as your first board, due to its rocker and flex it will be more difficult and uncomfortable for you until you know what you're doing also recommend taking le...

Re: 2018 - Cabrinha Kitesurfing

at least they got rid of the circus tent kites, i dont know what they were thinking with the blue and red. they still look like something you might throw over a building for gassing bugs, but at least it's better than last year

Re: Brunotti S-Tech Boards

although with a EPS core id think it would be just as prone to snapping as any other shortboard, Saying this shows that you don't know what you're talking about. The core material has the least amount to do with how strong a board is. Please explain how this board would be more difficult to snap in...
