Re: Europe from mid-September to mid-October (warm place)

Has Paros more wind than Cyprus? I would guess it's about equal, or am I wrong?

Re: Independent rider license or certificate - what is it?

Is it normal now that instead of a card the school sends you a link create an IKO profile - in which they classified your IKO level? After a 9 hour beginners course and 1 month more of riding several times a week at the local spot, I got an email and can see the school certified level 4 (or better a...

Re: Does kiteboarding affect your sleep?

To me that rather happens if I'm really excited about a new sport or the night before getting to a great sports spot. Worst sleep for me is if it's dumping snow heavily and I look forward to a great day of freeriding (and hadn't had any good days with at least 50cm fresh powder for a long time). Wor...

Re: Help with beginner setup - but will ride 3 months nearly every day

Since 1 week most of the gear has arrived finally (first pieces 2 weeks ago) - so after the course I had to pay for a 12 sessions in 30 days rental package. No board arrived so far - so I got a very lightly used Slingshot Crisis in 137*41.2cm from 2015. Have to say I don't like that board at all (do...

Re: Help with beginner setup - but will ride 3 months nearly every day

yeah - maybe better should have stayed away from YLI. For days they did not send anything, and don't reply to any emails or phone calls (yes calling during the hours indicated - tried many many times). Now one part of the order is dispatched - but I don't know what is arriving. I would like to have ...

Re: Help with beginner setup - but will ride 3 months nearly every day

well I did order already - 2 days ago an email arrived with a tracking link - but so far nothing happened. Also not possible to reach anyone via phone (during the mentioned hours) - and no replies via email on questions. It really seems a bit chaotic. yes I see my options for kites are 8-10.5 9-12 8...

Re: Help with beginner setup - but will ride 3 months nearly every day

Sorry - thought my post did not go through - maybe new peoples posts here need to be approved each time? Yes thought about YLI - it's cheaper than buying used here. 10.5 because that size was recommended to me here. So to maximize riding time with two kites what should I get - better 8 and 12 instea...

Re: Help with beginner setup - but will ride 3 months nearly every day

yeah - I want to order at YLI - especially with the tax cut since yesterday again a bit cheaper. Okay so better no harness - understood that it's better to try on. I went for 10.5 because that's what the school here recommended for me. So you think I really need a 3 kite setup - like 7 - 9 - 12. If ...

Help with beginner setup - but will ride 3 months nearly every day

Hi - I'm looking to start kitesurfing - and plan to ride 2-4 hours every day starting the day after tomorrow. Will be taking a 7 hours private course - then hope to get on myself. I have loads of snowboard experience (very high level freeride / high leven raceboarding/boardercross, shitty at freesty...
