Re: Introducing the Hoff - a transparent acrylic board

Nice board! I have a similar board made from Lexan. (I think) It is heavy but floats. Kind of heavy too. I will try to post a pic of it. You really can't see much as your riding because there is always a little air under the board. Sits in the corner as a talking piece more than a riding piece.

Re: Safe student launch?

Agree^^^^^ Modern kites will sit at zenith with minimal effort so good to start students in this way with small steering inputs to build their skills. Starting a student off the water is a worry as they can oversteer it and wang it across the window, also in marginal winds they oversheet it which i...

Re: Englewood Florida?

You can't trust anything further than 3 days out. 12m and 9m would be best to bring but if you can bring a big kite, bring it to.

Re: misfit or asylum ?

If you think these two boards are almost identical then you may want to put you contacts back in. :o Tips are different, bottom is different, rocker is different, outline is different. that doesn't tell which one is the best for pop and landings... For what you are asking for, go with the Asylum. B...

Re: Safe student launch?

That's why you tell them to not grab the bar until after the transfer and explain why. I always transfer while in the air. Have taught close to 1000 people and not a single problem.

Re: misfit or asylum ?

Both of these are nice boards. I've ridden both the Misfit 142 & 146 and the Asylum 138 & 141. The Asylum has just a *smidge* more rocker than the Misfit. Otherwise, they're a pretty similar width and shape. I'm heavier than you are, so I tend to prefer the Misfit for the faster speed. But, for you...

Re: Englewood Florida???

Englewood is between Fort Meyers and St. Pete. Plenty of riding to be had. You can ride any direction from some spots near the Skyway Bridge. Probably ok in Englewood too. Stay out of swim areas. March is usually a great time of year for wind though maybe not Englewood itself due to off shore winds....

Re: Average Joe Kite Review- Light wind kites

Whatever you say Noel. But since you sim to know everything, can you explain me and everybody else why they had to cancel the race and the freestyle competitions since we never competed. Because this is when I had some of these kiters testing the INFINITY. Anyway, I am done wasting my time arguing ...
