Re: Switch Lineup

I am considering Helium for light wind. I am riding TT, 80kg. Have 12m as biggest at the moment. Can someone with experience advice which size of Helium would fit better for TT in lets say 10-15knots. 16 or 18m?

I have my phone written with water resistant pen on board and white pads. Has been 2 years now- still there. Cheap and quick.

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Nobody is leaving this planet. Going to Mars and converting it to habitable planet? At the fraction of those efforts we can fix Earth to much better condition. I work ay big company, which can make a quite an impact- all my coworkers are eager to save Earth, but to be honest- no one knows what to do...

Re: Which brands of kitesurfing boards and considered the good ones?

get brightest color available- when you are in wavy water- lost board becomes invisible :) it is so easy to loose board at beginning if water is rough and deep. For those days I got GoJoe- look like a kook but I don't care. Get your name and telephone written on board. Go cheap. you will scratch it,...

Re: Advise needed on board size for beginner

hi, take it! More important is width. 42-43cm wide will be great for beginner as it will plane easier and let you keep standing during lulls.

The first board should be cheap and a little too big. Do not care for more features for now. just ride :)

Re: Trying to understand kite quiver

I also noted this quote - tomato, sorry, but this statement makes absolute no sense as a general statement, without information about your location and what you ride (OR what you define as small kites, as for some it is below 6-7 m2, for others it is below 10 m2). Being a beginner it is a TT most l...

Re: Trying to understand kite quiver

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

I am at similar situation- thinking to learn strapless next coming summer. I am 80kg, we do not have big wave, just from wind and storms, some chop normally. Surfing is not popular in area and therefore no cheap old surfboards available for 100 euros. So far I have been looking at North Nugget, GA S...
