Re: Using LEI kites on land

Yes you can use an lei. The downside. Its slower to set up/pack up, more likely to get damaged when crashed on land, Is less compact and your need to carry a pump if you want to go a distance. Upside. Lots of depower, generally faster and more dynamic that foils. 10m is a good size to start with. Ma...

Re: Foilholio wants to destroy kiteforum - any help to stop him appreciated

Here's my 5 cents. Trolls love to watch the world burn and they love the fight and attention. It is a game to them. The more fight the more attention the better, He will be fueled by this thread for example. He will absolutely be loving that there is another 5 pages dedicated to him, Just silently d...

Re: Shorter board is less playful...!

I had a similar thing on my mountain bike when I had flexible wheels. I learnt a technique to turn that required more input and and turning in sooner. I switch to carbon wheels and instantly started to crash as i would turn into the corners too soon. The same is happening to you. You have learnt bad...

Re: Let's talk about our favorite kites for fast/powered riding.

I have 12 chrono, 10 edge, 8 enduro, 6 reo, 4 uno. I prefer the 12 chrono to the 10 edge in lighter winds as it stays in the are and is much more likely to not end up in the water. The 10 edge, though fantastic when powered up doesnt not relaunch well in light winds or and its heavy an falls out of ...

Re: What is the lowest wind you can kite in?

How low can I go? 6 knots on the water I reckon with my current kit. On land with the buggy on a hard beach with onshore wind if I can get the kite in the air then I can kitebuggy. It doesnt even need to be stay at in the air. If I can get one down loop then I'm off with apparent wind. So 3-4 knots,...

Re: What's your favorite wind range?

These are the magic days for me. 25-35 knots. They have been some of the best days I have had on this planet. As well as strong wind I also want cross on to cross off and the sea condition to be blazing 3-5m swell. That is where the holy grail of kitesurfing is for me. 26171534_10155109653425108_333...

Re: Hi all, what is the maximum windspeed to kite?

The highest wind I have kited in is an estimated 55 knot gusts. I say estimated as I didnt have a wind meter on me. But on the drive home which happened to be directly down wind I could put my hand out of the car window at 100kph and feel no wind..... That day was absolutely stupid and literally dea...
