Re: Any benefit to weight in the foil

Heavy is good, heavy is realiable. If it doesn't work, you can always hit with it....

can't teach everywhere. Such schools who do in dangerous areas should be closed by government.
Heaven forbid living in a country where a kiting school needs to be licensed or could be "closed by a government". But we have skateboarding and kiting bans...

....No license, no instructions. ban teaching from the beach. and the injuries will go down by miles. Remember - it's money they're after. They'll move it to parks, soccer fields and other public places then. Worse to deep water right away and then drownings would go up and kiting bans will follow ...

Re: Core, are you insane?

After noticing some wear on one of the bridle lines and the pigtails on 12m xr4... I though XR4 is pretty new model. The hell are bridles and pigtails on it are made of that they wear out? Looking at my favorite wing of last three years I see no wear on those parts. Discoloring pigtails at most. Re...

Re: Cabrinha Fireball update

I like the Fireball. Is it a "game changer"? No. I disagree completely. It is a game changer! - Folks won't demo your kite anymore - nobody is going to ask to try uour harness - you don't have to ride unhooked anymore - anything goes wrong with your bar or harness and you can take break from kiting...

Re: kite for 37 kg girl

A 45kg friend learned on a 8m Rally and was really happy. It stays in the air at 5.5 m/s, relaunches are golden, power is smooth.
RPM is great but it's not a beginner/learning kite.

Teach on a door board and she'll be riding in a week time.

Had mine a few weeks and 4 sessions on it. Very happy with purchase so far.
How do you like your 42" Dwarfcraft? How does it ride compared to lager board? Any regrets about it or anything exciting?

to South Padre, TX in March (looking for a room)

Hey folks,
the winter has been too long, I would like to get a break between March 16-25 and looking for a kiting group who'd go to South Padre, TX or someone who'd just have an extra room in the house.
The dates are somewhat flexible within that timeframe, please let me know.
