Re: Ozone Enduro V3 Release Date ?

I respect a brand that does not push out a product just because 'it's time' and instead pushes out a product when they have something that's actually BETTER

Re: Line lengths for mega looping

I just heli loop (both down and normal loop) because I'm old, fat and a chicken. It's looping for fun, not as a challenge.
Looping on 27m lines is a blast. So easy, relaxed and easier landings than 23m lines. Try it!

Re: Making launch safer - learning from the experts

Exhibit A: people's opinions on the internet Exhibit B: the number of people who killed themselves launching hooked this year Exhibit C: the number of people who got hurt / caused injury / caused trouble launching unhooked over past several years (zero ?) Hmmmm... let's see... opinions vs. dead peop...

Re: Making launch safer - learning from the experts

https://youtu.be/U76QW8nUWhM This is a short video of myself doing unhooked assisted launch. Wind speed was 18, gusting to 25 kts, super gusty and shifty, 6m kite, had no problem holding on to the kite. This is our landboarding spot. Spot on Alex! So many people would be alive today if they had lau...

Re: 29000 new kiters in 2018

Got hit in the face by kite lines TWICE this year while riding. Gotta love having a bajillion beginners around. I think that kite schools that teach safety, right of way, placing your kite higher to zenith if you are upwind of someone and lower if you are downwind, and NOT FRIGGING WRAPPING YOUR KIT...

Re: How to self launch a kite

Thanks Pullstrings. Yes Peter Lynn ARC (the original one!), even got it modded by a pro in Australia who added TE tuck and side inflation zippers. So I launched sideways like a PL Venom (which I later owned). Yes I'm that old. Anyways your launch method is intense as you have a bag on LE and another...

Re: Near fatality at Hermanus today December 12 2018

I'm just wondering why it's commonly acceptable to do do kitesurfing without helmet and impact vest. If you drive a car you buckle up, if you ride motorbike you've helmet, but 99% of expert kitesurfers do it without any protections. So inconsiderate. IMHO a conventional helmet reduces risk when on ...

Re: Fatality in France

Braugnoff, exactly as you say - right on every point How can you say these deaths could have been prevented with YOUR way of working. Your method would not work in 40knts and hooked launch is way more controlled, ofcourse there is always a chance for things to go wrong but to simply blaim it on thei...
