Re: Lost at sea @Tenerife - expected at any Atlantic coast

The harness stitching on the webbing that held my spreader bar broke allowing my harness to split in two. The bar got ripped out of my hands and I watch my kite fly away. It was a Peter Lynn Arc with auto zenith and the harness acted as a sea anchor while the kite flew away in the neutral position....

Started in El Medano? How did it Happen? Good luck!
Correct. El Medano.
A rider's harness parted in two halves. Would you believe it?
He lost all gear at once. Had to swim back ashore.
His kite was recovered but the board was unseen anymore.

Lost at sea @Tenerife - expected at any Atlantic coast

Bracuru Hover (white board) with Moses Comet likely is drifting somewhere in the North Atlantic. Lost in November last year. Wonder if anybody find it ever. Likely it could be met in The Caribbean, Mexico Bay, East USA coast. Less likely it could be back to Canary Islands or finish its trip in Norwe...

Re: Maldives - January

Dare to say: probably the best kitespot in Maldives under construction now:

perfect lagoon, perfect wind directions, perfect launching area.
The reclamation ground needs at least 5 years to settle down.

Re: How high are you pointing upwind? Are 30° already possible?

haha looks like downwind angles, what speed are you going? Very slow at such angle - 11kts average (max 12.5) I notice that I can keep up with the angle with the top Polish racers but they go 3kts faster then. Huge! Seems wrong to me to measure the angle off dead upwind, would make much more sense ...
