Re: Light wind board / kite suggestions?

Check boards of size around 135x47 cm (click), nice light wind performance and fun in a little bit more demanding conditions.

Re: Why there are no 135 by 50 TT boards?

My first board was a Lost Cause from 2007/08 I think. (lostcauseboards.com) . I think it’s 137x50. Worked great as a beginner board and still my go to board in light wind. It’s super light with just a foam core and fully glassed rails. Not much rocker but a big scoop of concave in the middle. It ne...

Re: Different Bar Widths - Explained

And I am sorry you are an idiot. You even argued against and disproved you own assertion while trying to prove it. Multi level stupid. It's a simple concept. Am I surprised many people and those at some brands can't grasp it? Not really anymore, we have Trump after all. One question, foilholio. If ...

Re: Launching your kite in +25 knots fully depowered

IMO Fully depowered kite can be powered by bar movement. If not, and lines are still lose when the bar is in full power position, trimming is required.

Re: How to self land core sensor pro bar

Carabiner and dyneema is good option, if you have it :-) I know the spots, where carabiner with dyneema are fixed to the fence for years (public beaches). But this is possible, if you plan self landing. Not if you finish as the very last one, when anybody else is gone. In strong winds I go to the V,...

Re: ss Rally keep inverting

I bought a used Rally 2010. After the first low and unstable wind session, I was terrified - three falls from the sky and invertions. Since that time (over a year) it does not happen again - just different characteristic of the kite compared to the previous one. You have to switch and adapt. Hard pu...
