Re: Vertigo while Kiting?

I would go see a Doctor to get checked out. I would do it sooner than later. I hope I'm wrong but the first thing I thought of when reading your symptoms was a stroke. I would say those symptoms are serious enough for a dr's visit.

Re: Recommended ankle brace for ankle sprain prevention

At this point I would say the best thing to do is see a sports medicine specialist in ankles. If you are having recurring sprains chances are you have serious damage to the ligaments and or tendons. When I first went to see a Dr for my ankle after the MRI came back the first thing he said was "Well ...

Re: Recommended ankle brace for ankle sprain prevention

This is the one I was given after ankle surgery. I have used it once but with boots since I just got released from the Dr to play again. https://www.amazon.com/DonJoy-Stabilizing-Ankle-Support-Medium/dp/B00P3D48D4/ref=sr_1_5?crid=19MGFR97FHM49&keywords=donjoy+ankle+brace&qid=1583377453&sprefix=donjo...

Re: Disassembling old Cab bar

Would have to have a pic of the bar. I'm not familiar with the cab bars. I have pulled apart my SS bar and I had to cut the rubber off that covered the rivet so I could drill it out. I'm sure it would be similar to that unless the bar is a single piece with the bar end. I doubt that because it would...

Re: Handy tricks you only found after beginner lessons

It's trim, not depower. [/quote] Read my post again Karen [/quote] No reason to re-read it. It's not "De-Power" it's "Trim". De-power is a marketing BS term and so misleading that most people don't understand what it actually does. You are correct in what you say about trimming the kite in lower wi...

Re: Instructor gets caught in lines and drowns after saving students

Heard about this over the weekend from a friend that knew heard about it from a guy that was there. The one that was telling us about it is from Chile and he said he had met the instructor before. The guy tried to retrieve the kite after someone had released it. His leg got caught in the line and ca...

Re: How To Heli Loop / Downloop / Landing Loop for big jumps big air | Get High with Mike

I like to ride fast so the back loop heli slows down my landing speed. 2 once you have them dialed it makes for the softest landings. I was wondering about this: the video talks about pulling a back (Heli) loop causing more forwards momentum then a front hand loop. I also have the opinion that a ba...

Re: How To Heli Loop / Downloop / Landing Loop for big jumps big air | Get High with Mike

Great tutorial of the real deal! Obviously the further you swing under the kite the more room you have to do an open loop near the vertical axis, the video even talks about sheeting out to get kite further upwind and this is just what I have been trying to experiment with of late Trouble is, I get ...

Re: What is more dangerous, racing motorcycles or kitesurfing?

Fatalities number are related to conditions and choices at that time. If they all crashed into the water, they would probably all survive. They would be no alive PPG pilots if they all crashed into the rock. But many crashed on top of the trees, including myself. So I survived. No kiter was eaten b...

Re: What is more dangerous, racing motorcycles or kitesurfing?

I would say everything in reason is just as dangerous as you make it. I kite and it is more dangerous than paragliding for me. I'm not a very experienced pilot and I only fly in good conditions when I do. I live in Houston Tx so I can fly in perfect sea breeze winds. All so have a few weather statio...
