Re: Stomach muscles

You that you can never have enough ab muscles for big air. Every jump is like a leg lift with weights on your legs AND going against a couple G-forces as you get rocketed up. More gym + more kiting but there are limits... One thought: you might also try jumps without sending the kite, e.g., a simple...

Re: Help choosing July destination

Greek islands are great for twin tippers (assuming from your profile). I've been to Rhodes a couple times and had wind every day plus great food and scenery. If you leave from Paris, that seems like a no brainer. If you leave from NY, I would go a little farther than Caribbean and go to Maui. Great ...

Re: South Padre - June/July

The meters on ikitesurf.com are accurate and give a great picture. Do be aware there can be a big difference (10 knots +) between the gulf side and laguna side, especially in summer. Unfortunately for wave riders, the laguna side is stronger as the wind speed accelerates the more inland you go. Spri...

Re: Kite spots with left handed waves

Frankieboy gave you a great bucket list for goofy wave riders. @overratedscurvy: This is the kiting version of the saying about the grass always looking greener somewhere else: When you're goofy, all the best spots look like rights (Maui, California/Baja coast, Cape Verde, ...) but when you're regul...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

I have ridden them both (2018 models) and would put them in different categories. Neo should be more compared to Naish Slash than Naish Pivot. Neo and Pivot are both great in their category. Pivots are great for boosting and as the name says, pivot turns. This makes them great for easy kite loops or...

Re: Vacation warriors - a new breed emerges and it scares the crap outta me

I ran into some people lately who for one reason or another aren't dedicated wind warriors. This is a problem. kitesurfing needs to be more like a cult. you are either IN and when the conditions are good, you will ignore all responsibilities and jobs and family for a good session. or you are not a ...

Re: Hawaii in April/May

on a good surf day, there will be 10's of surfers waiting for each wave and cutting in line is for sure not taken well and that is where the videos come from. However, there are not surfers at kite beach, just other kiters, at least after 11am and on windy days. You won't have issues, it's a chill c...

Re: Wave kite size recommendation

I agree on the 9. that is the money kite for the best wave days, with wind not too light that you're struggling, not too strong which can make for chop on the waves. I haven't ridden a Fuel or any C since 2013, so you can take this information as dated: but I definitely wouldn't want a C in the wave...

Re: Shoulder friendly freeride kites?

I have some shoulder issues from way too many years of swimming. I don't think the kite brand is the issue as the days of massive bar pressure differences are over. Instead, slight style adjustments might help more. Mostly after crashes, avoid the temptation to reach and grab the bar or a board that...

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

this is like walking into a church and asking if you should get baptized! of course! ... But only in church a priest will be interested in having sex with your son. And they won't even give parents a discount on the 10% they owe church. All that while being tax exempt. Foiling is none of that BS. I...
