Video trip to Namibia

A few months ago I visited Namibia. A really special trip and an absolute blast (for my type of riding at least). Amazing landscapes! There is a blog too:

Re: Ouch...what went wrong here?

looks like either his chicken loop wasn't hooked in or he popped the release by mistake then held on and has no experience flying a 2 line over powered kite.

Re: Waist and seat harness in the same session?

Yeah I use both and sometimes in the same session. Much prefer waist harness for Wave riding and the seat for loops and old school. Sometimes I will old school in a waste too, it does work different muscles. I am also of the opinion that shifting the stress on the body is good to avoid injuries. ( I...

Re: 2018 Axis Limited/Vanguard

I've got a 2018, 142x44. Had 140x43 2013 and 2015 models too. Medium rails, less aggressive channels/spines. Notice less resistance when sliding a transition but I think this board tracks better through chop. A little less harsh through the chop too, a little softer maybe, but that might just be th...

Re: Triple & quad ripstop

Elongation test? Would be interested to see how that was done and how it relates to real kiteboarding situation. Yes the strength of the material and it's stretchability would be important, but the most important? What about: resistance to violent impact, resistance to flapping, sun exposure, resist...

Re: Hook harness completely broke off

Yeah also had a few snap a while back... once in 35/40 knots... managed to hold on as in snapped one, two... but got interesting after that.
Anyway, I agree, it shouldn't happen but then again car tyres shouldn't explode, but they do. I think you just got unlucky.

Re: Triple & quad ripstop

Another point to take into consideration in the argument for thicker ripstop is flexibility. The stiffer the material, the more it suffers in any fluttering. Stiffer ripstop will show cracks if exposed to flapping or fluttering (like when your kite is on the beach) Ripstop is not inherently flexible...

Re: Maybe I'll get to keep my name after all..

Amazing to see how volatile this industry is... Wipika started it and is long dead, Flexifoil Best / Eleveight North / duotone Cabrinha / Neil pride Waiman mess with investor, As much as people can talk about passion for sport... it appears passion for money has more pull. At least so it seems. Ced
