everyone should be allowed to kitesurf no matter where you are from or who you are. Maybe if Hitler had kitesurfed he wouldn't have been so angry.
I thought Hitler did.

Re: first session Pansh A15 15m ultralight, new to foil kites

Went out again in 12 to 15 kts and did much better with the depower strap all the way in but I still needed three tries to launch. Each attempt inflated the kite more than i could by just holding the vents open in my wind shadow launch. Should I be launching with the kite depowered all the way at t...

Re: Filling out Quiver--light wind

Have you considered a foil kite? 15m would work well in 12 to 18kts with plenty if boost.

Re: first session Pansh A15 15m ultralight, new to foil kites

crappy bar and qr. good that you like the kite It was only 169 USD, and since I plan to get rid of the chicken loop anyway, it seemed like the least expensive way to go. I have a pansh bar but changed it imediatly and turned it into a race bar for my 15m diablo. I use my airush bar and lines with m...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a foilkite fan

I picked up a 12m Ultra last Thursday and I'm happy to say its awesome. I ride on the Solent, Great Britain, which is home to gusty winds that lull to the point you're fully powered and then your kite falls out of the sky but I had none of these problems with the Ultra. I tested the relaunch in win...

Re: using 5th line Pansh A15 15m

In high winds on your own bring the kite to the edge of the window with tip on the ground then pull backlines hard to backstall onyo the ground. Or get help to hold the tip and walk towards the kite. In lightwinds you can backstall from 12 but be commited as it will take some strength if a gust occu...

Re: Low wind board.

I too have shallow beach and love playing in it as its the flattest part as the tide drops.
Hydrofoil will be out as the tides are coming in when i get to the beach. (Assuming the conditions are right and it doesnt mean giving up a good session)
