Re: Boosting Kite that Wave Rides

I want a kite that boosts and wave-rides, yes.. wanting cake & eating it - I have used Parks & older Pivots and the Pivot does quite well here. I appreciate that there is always a compromise and any kite is not always perfect for the given day, but I can't face/justify getting wave specific kites. ...

Re: Why Peru is not a more popular kite destination?

Just came two days ago from Peru (paracas). Yes, it is very windy and water is "cold", need to use a wetsuit. I liked to kite there. Peru is quite far from Europe and expensive to fly to. My stomach still hurts. I felt everyone in Paracas got some infection from food. The food wasn't that good in g...

Re: Foil Gybe Advice

two disagreements on some advice: I don't think swapping out equipment is going to help. I got to do some demos when I was about at your stage and sorry to say, if you suck, you suck on all equipment. you can learn this on anything not too extreme (no race foils...) second, I am a very good kite loo...

Re: Kite & vacation spot

SPI could be ok in August, but definitely not worth getting on a plane for. go west for wind in August: Maui, Hood River, and SF Bay area, would be my 3 suggestions, in that order.

Re: Foil Gybe Advice

Ive been trying for a couple months now to turn and I fail every time. Ive watched every youtube video twice and tried everything from turning fast to turning slow and everything in-between. The only thing I can do is a quickish turn from heel-side regular foot to toe-side goofy. I can go about 10 ...

No mention of kitesurfing being surfing.
Ha true he did not say that. but if he can tow himself in with a jetski, then we can tow ourselves in with a kite - it's all surfing!

Re: How to prevent rotation jumping from wave

Seems weird to me that the op does not mention what's happening with the kite. For me kite position is fundamental in arresting the natural back rotation you generate from the take off. If it is a small jump the pull on the front hand can be used to redirect your body as well as the kite. If it is ...

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

every video i've seen is for the 10m Roam. Seems to me this isn't where most of the interest would be, since most 10m's are plenty good now. i certainly wouldn't pay double for something i'm already happy with. why no video's on 12m's (guess it would have to be the Flite)? most 12m's are horrible, ...

Re: Foilin' Around 14: More Lessons From Barbados

great video. did you destroy your kite in the end? also, not wanting to get off topic, but are you traveling with foil and surfboard? How do you pack it and how much do the airlines charge to bring it all? I would love to do that.
