Re: 20 Years of Kiting!

Congratulations Rick. I started a bit later in 1999 with a Wipika 5.0 classic (2 lines) and Timpone board. Fun times. :D

Who would have thought we'd be hydrofoiling now. :o

Thanks for all the safety work you've done over the years Rick.

Re: Different Bar Widths - Explained

Back on topic.. Ralf's original post shows well how bar width affects a kite's turning speed. Clearly you can use a shorter bar or use the shorter setting on an adjustable width bar to slow the kite response speed. What isn't mentioned is that the kite 'speed' also depends on the distance between th...
