Re: What would you do if?

My two cents. Almost every situation you encounter in kiteboarding is an act of problem solving. I am here. I want to be there. I do this and this and this to make that happen. The situations vary. The techniques you can apply are relatively few. Pull this. Pull that. Let go. Run. The key to safe la...

Re: Downloops on surfboard

It's really only a variation on the "pull harder" advice, but you need to focus on "pitch poling" the bar. That's where you grab one end of the bar and point the other end of the bar straight at the kite. The result is a tight, fast downturn with not all that much power in the turn, but you have acc...

Re: Harry started Wing Foiling at age 63!

Why is this a thing? Almost everybody that wings/foils around here are in their 60's. We're the only ones that can afford the gear and have the time to use it.

Re: How long is your drive to the Kiting Spot, how long is your Session, how exhausted are you after the session

1. 10-15 minutes drive
2. 1:15 session on average. Most are 1 hour.
3. Not at all.

... and 230 days/300 hours a year.

Re: Flight of Fancy

Re: Flight of Fancy

Watch the video. Tows in to the wave and only using the wing for flying. Not quite as good as pure wing power, but still pretty good first effort.
