Re: Tips for travelling with kite equipment - how do you pack?

Do you really want to have that debate? Because you feel you are over charged, it is legitimate to steal? It's a choice to fly. Reading your posts over many years I thought you were a better person than that. Maybe you'd feel different if your pension was connected to an airline or you were a shareh...

Re: Tips for travelling with kite equipment - how do you pack?

Do you advocate stealing from duty free too? Really. I always have too much weight....although I have only one kite! A good tip is: know your airport! At most airports in the western world you have to bring your bag to the oversized luggage counter...but the weighing is at the checkin counter... So ...

Re: Tips for travelling with kite equipment - how do you pack?

Weight is the enemy! Not sure I follow why you want to make one large bag, although it maybe more convenient at times. Bus and taxi transfers will be a pain with a 30Kg bag. 2 check-in bags, one clothes and one kite bag would be how I’d do it, each 23Kg max (some local airlines maybe 20Kg so be prep...

Re: Split boards - worth the money?

I'm always fascinated to know how folks travel with kite gear and only have one check in bag? How to you take clothes, toiletries, travel stuff etc. My board and a couple of kites get me to 50lbs really quick! Maybe I should take far less and wash my clothes when I'm there :-? The NOBILE NHP Split 2...

Re: New to kite, need to choose kite

Hi Thor and welcome to the forum. Your question always gets some sparks flying. There is a lot to consider before you buy anything, but hooking up with locals and talking with them will probably give you the most relevant advice. This thread only a short while ago, highlights the varied views of kit...

Re: Home made split board

Certainly! It’s a Concept Ruler Board. It is cut straight in half, no groove or anything, just a straight cut. The cut edge of each half just butts up together. Then, what appears to be a carbon fibre plate bolts down, joining the two halves of the board together. The plate has 3 bolts on each side ...

Re: Home made split board

I find private jets rather limited on luggage space, max length anyway.

Re: Looking for advice on first quiver

Hi Lee, Your question always provokes a stream of different opinions here and usually a little pedantic infighting too! Which is always fun to read! Everyone has their own take on a first quiver, rightly so, it would be a boring world if we all thought the same. As a beginner it takes a while to bui...

Re: Split boards - worth the money?

I was in a similar position and pulled the trigger about 18 months ago. Here's a review I did at the time; https://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2398218 I'm still happy with the board, though I hardly kite at all these days. I'm heavy and certainly wouldn't use a split board for my 'home' bo...
