Re: Eastern Cape SA, Port Alfred in October?

I spent about a week in the Port Alfred area beginning of October a few years ago. Had wind every day different strengths, different directions, so take 8m through to 14m. There are many river mouths to kite, check on google earth before you go and try a few of them. Watch out for jellyfish and shar...

Re: Cabrinha Switchblade 2016 Versus Switch Nitro/Element

Thanks for the detailed review! If price was the same which kite would you choose ? The relaunch is important to me even though I don't drop the kite too often , but I do kite in an area with lots of boats, ferries, shipping liners and have had to relaunch very fast in the past to avoid an incoming...

Re: Cabrinha Switchblade 2016 Versus Switch Nitro/Element

I've got my first switch kite, a nitro5 8m, six weeks ago and have flown it eight times so far in varying conditions (15-30kn) which I think is enough to give some feedback now. I've also flown the 2016 switchblade six times, twice back to back with the nitro5 same size. I almost bought the 2016 swi...

How did yours eventually expire? I've had my warrior 3 at least five years and its looking close to expiring. Don't know what I'd replace it with either.

Re: Let's talk risk (KOTA)

Why is it all we see in the Kota is the very simple tweaked out board off. just not worth the points or not worth the risk...or both? Taking the board off in over 30 knots is actually quite difficult and risky because the board just wants to blow away when its not attached to your feet. The board i...

Re: King of the Air 2016 - all info

You can see Lasse's crash at 2:48:13 on Day 2 vid at http://redbullkingoftheair.com/live-feed/ and Lewis's crash wasn't quite caught by the redbull cams at 3:05:01 but it was pretty much the same thing, I think he might have caught a wind lull during his loop and the kite could not climb fast enough...

Re: KOTA isn't KOTA anymore

Promoting safety for the spectators and the kiters who decide to try their own massive jumps riding overpowered in conditions just to get more height but don't wear any safety gear because the guys in KOTA dont wear it. I think enough kiters saw the two carried off the beach on stretchers to know t...

Re: Let's talk risk (KOTA)

Risk of loosing the board during a board off could be about the same risk of loosing a kite in a handle pass (and kite could be eaten by waves). I wonder if they would get added risk score for riding without a kite leash. I still think the extra low megaloops are the most risky and the crowded did s...

Re: King of the Air 2016 - all info

How do they measure the height of the jump? Or do they give points just how stylish jump is? There is a woo on each riders board. Go download the Woo app on your phone and see each riders jump heights as they come off the water. Live stats of all the riders jumps from WOO Sports : Download the FREE...
