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

Hello, Why everybody goes to Brazil for their kitesurf holidays ? You will tell me : maybe because the wind is strong and like a fan all day everyday, because there are amazing infinite downwinders, because it is relatively cheap, the water is warm and there are palmtrees. OK that's true! I must re...

Who's the champion Riding a Soul?
XD
I noticed that!!
Looks windy , so smaller medium aspect kites could do ok. In all races there is always local guys (casual competitors) also competing with their everyday kites, could be one of them.

Connor (the real champ) is using the F-One diablo IV.

Re: Who are the foilers?

So do windsurf foil and surf/SUP foil markets pay off on investments into specific molds and design? Do they benefit in means of knowledge/R&D/revenue or they're rather a burden? Are they going to make it as a separate line or they'll be using kite/wake foil material? As originally with kite foilin...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

Yea, I had to do some asking around to find out, because I'm keen to see what changes were made and I'm in the market for a small one for foiling. (Really like the way it flies, but there are always one or two details that can be improved / unnecesary things taken away) Don't know a exact date, but...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

@prfctChaos, when is the Hyperlink v2 due out? There is zero mention of it on the Web- maybe you know something that the rest of us don't? Yea, I had to do some asking around to find out, because I'm keen to see what changes were made and I'm in the market for a small one for foiling. (Really like ...

Re: Moses Havok...

Haven't seen one but a friend got his and was not impressed with the board. Not enough rocker in the front and board nose dives constantly, probably purely for racing. He also found that at high speed the mast cavitated on the starboard tack only but that should hopefully disappear after sanding. O...

Re: Common Instructor Mistakes

Thanks for the insight, but there must be a problem somewhere. Checked out some of the IKO instructors in my area, some of which can barely kite and others which are known to have frequent problems/accidents with students. They are all rated 5 stars ...

Re: Enata bar and spreader bar...any reviews?

Whow. You guys are phenomenal. Does any of you jump over 10m, or do 720m rotations with a board off on any temp? If you do, you would know what kind of grip is needed on the bar for one hand board operation. Talk with the pros, if you don't trust me. Nothing phenomenal, I wish, just give it a try a...

Re: Common Instructor Mistakes

Don't mean to change the topic but as an ex instructor (1999 to 2012) I consider that IKO has destroyed the value of the profession by flooding the market with low level instructors working for peanuts. Can't think of any other high risk profession where you can qualify in barely 5 days. Kitesurfin...
