Re: Kite fatality in Thailand

So sad to hear about the fatality in Hua Hin. Maybe we can make the best of this tragedy by using it as a lesson to always carry a knife and to plan. I hope the following story can convince you of how important it is to carry a kite knife. A few years back I had a very scary incident on a powered 9m...

Re: Boots: Any safety tips?

I wish I could still ride boots but after an ACL tear and two broken tibias (all done while snowboarding) my knees can’t take the torque any longer so I ride straps now and have been focusing on board offs and the like.

Cloud D1 good for boosting on foil?

Has anyone tried boosting on the cloud D0 or D1 single strut? How does it compare to other single struts such as the Mono or Ultra?

Darkslide from blind?

I’ve been thinking about how one might initiate a dark slide from blind. Would this be possible (it seems one would almost certainly need to rotate front side while doing it)? Anyone tried?

Re: Kite companies - please stop the wakestyle hype!!!

I love air style, foiling, strapless and wakestyle. The appeal of which is that to learn certain tricks and to land them consistently one must crash hundreds of times. The challenge of learning a difficult handle pass trick and then mastering it gives great reward. Learning a strapless back roll mig...
