Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

Let me make this perfectly clear: Starsky, now Jumpingshark, is a low class bully whose posts revolve around character assassination & gratuitous self-aggrandizement. He imagines himself the absolute authority on kiteboarding & all dissenting opinions are immediately subjected to a hit job, not the ...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

Guys, ignore the jumpingjack ... err shark... champion. His mommy turned off cable, so he‘s replaying his faves on social media. Seriously, he only stirs trouble & contention, zero contribution... he‘s done a lot of damage to the forum over the years, but if you engage him you are guilty too. I adm...

Re: Need advice for beginner - kite size

Well, only you know your weight. Funny the kite is in the right ball park for me at 116Kg and most of the comments for the OP at 54Kg Seems for 90Kg it is about 6 knots over stated (Hummmm..) and from your comments under stated by a measure too at the very low weight end :o I suppose the figures on...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

And don't forget the classic trick everyone wants to do: a Backroll. Do It with a 17 in 15 knots and with a 5 in 45 knots. Only with that you will know how good a slow kite is for progression... Depends what your progression is. If its to waddle around in 15 knots then yes!. If its to haul arse in ...

Re: Need advice for beginner - kite size

That Kite is not ideal for a learner. Something easier to control and water re-launch would be better. Hard to imagine thinking about low end at 54Kg! Be sure you know what wind speed the kite will re launch in and don't let her our if it's below, keep safe. This graph courtesy of Peter Frank is a ...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

You are right , let him & his minions bark ... just don’t reward him with a response anymore... that’s painful to watch/read; they have no clue & whoever follows them, well, free world free choice, I’m not standing between anyone & the cliff

Re: surfboard vs directional kite board

Being nicely powered helps. Bigger /slower kites will need to be turned sooner than small /fast kites. Look where you want to go. Not up at the kite. Not down at your board. Eyes level with the horizon. Kite position and timing for the foot switch are the hard part to get dialed. Carve through the ...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

I have to agree with Toby! Slow turning kites are definitely safer, but you can learn to loop them as well & then you got the best of both worlds.
