Re: Drama at Formula Kite Asians as Leading Women Demoted for Errors

So what.. there are 2 female competitors from all of Asia in the Asian championships.

Based on the olympic plan - that would mean 2 teams (a male and female) from a population of 5 billion people.

lol.. wtf...Sham. The cracks are going to open... no doubt about that.

Re: Kite spots with left handed waves

Northern hemisphere West coasts right handers, East coasts left handers. Southern hemisphere East Coast rights West coasts lefts. Very simple way to look at waves coming from huge lows in far north and far south winters. Save up and go to namotu, if they have a space that is. Trip of a lifetime. Rea...

Re: Wingsurfing - Intel - forum topic?

The SUP industry is dead compared to the boom in case you didnt know. I could be proved wrong but this doesnt seem like a light wind thing simply because to get up onto the foil from deep water looks like a huge PITA. you could catch sooo many waves at clean side off locations.. super long point bre...

They look a bit like horse jockeys.

I can't decide if this, wing foiling, or Napoleon Dynamite are less kooky.

Re: The best bag for kite gear? The blue Ikea bag?

if you put something like a plastic draining tray in the plastic bin- it keeps everything from staying soaking wet at the bottom - especially if you do back to back sessions without a dry out possibility.

Before GKA we had PKRA and KPWT.
Nothing to do with sailing.
And guess what?
Poor riders still had no chance to compete.
Do you actually think kiteboarding is sailing? or it just too political$ to answer!

Re: Youri Zoon | The Kitesurf365 Podcast

That isnt the main point here, it doesnt make the situation OK, fair, or without these conflicts of interests that need addressing. To make it simple: PKRA for example wasnt only funding riders that it sponsored to attend the events. They were also not choosing the judging criteria or judges in a co...

Re: Youri Zoon | The Kitesurf365 Podcast

How is running a World Championship kiteboarding competition using the might of World Sailing Lawyers that claim to own the term "world kiteboarding champion" and threaten other event organisers and lease it out to GKA not a huge conflict of interest. Especially when the GKA is made up of certain ki...

Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

You could build in tapered flanges on each part end - that act as "fins" that have countersunk nuts and bolt holes to secure it together. Add a gasket slot and gasket.. ?

i guess you can print closed cells too.
