Re: Wave kite dilemma

If you are looking for a fast turning wave kite with amazing drift, amazing relaunch and good low end power you should try the Ocean Rodeo Roam.

Re: Liquid Force Impluse for Kiteboarding ?

Sorry to hijack thread, where should the impulse foil be placed on a surfboard for strapless kitefoiling and wakefoiling. Mounting on a 5'4" space pickle. Never used that board but I ride with my back foot almost centered over the front bolts... I'm 180lbs and that trim works well for me. My stance...

Re: Liquid Force Impluse for Kiteboarding ?

I ride the Kanaha Shapes 37" with the LF Impulse and a 30" mast, I prefer the shorter mast simply for maneuverability. Excellent for kiting but I am not sure its the foil I would buy if I was just learning. Its great once you start learning to Jibe but when you are just learning to stay on foil I wo...

Re: How I built my own kite surfing bar

kite_hh when you are testing be mindful of how many times your safety line gets twisted around the center line. At first is will not be a problem but over time it will develop a memory and it will be difficult to keep it from twisting. I don't know why it does this but it does and its annoying, I su...

Re: Iberostar Playa Pilar Cayo Guillermo

I would add as I typically do on threads about Cuba... it is not a windy destination. There are mild easterly winds most days maybe 10 knots the 15+ knot days are rare unless you get lucky... and I have but I have been there over a dozen times. I have had wind everyday and I have had no wind for 10 ...

Re: Iberostar Playa Pilar Cayo Guillermo

Hi I am just back from Guillermo. Stayed at the Sol. Several families with kids there seemed to be having a nice time. Its not posh by any means but more than adequate - depends on your standards... You might want to look at the Melia if you want a little more upscale. The resorts at the Pillar end...

Re: Why isn't sliding rope bar more prevalent?

I loved the slider while learning to hydrofoil.. really helped with toeside tacks, imho. Once I progressed to jumping it felt a little weird and with less control.. not a huge deal, actually.. But my biggest issue with it was self launching in powered conditions (so that you go bigger on hydrofoil)...

Re: Unintended suicide mode on Core sensor 2+ bars

Shoot the guy that let it go before you had two hands on the bar? You would be waiting a long time before I put two hands on the bar... I always launch with one hand on the bar and one hand near or on my safety... you shouldn't need two hands on the bar to launch a kite... you are only steering it ...
