Re: Helmets for kitesurfing and the bucketing and drag myth

It protects my bald head from sunburn like it is magical. Doesn't do anything to protect me from internet trolls.

Re: Helmets for kitesurfing and the bucketing and drag myth

Everyone bear with me and I can solve this debate. If you want to wear a helmet then do it. If you do not want to wear one then don't. No matter where you stand on the subject. Keep that shit to yourself. If someone asks for a recommendation on a helmet. Give a recommendation and not your opinion o...

Re: How To Jump Higher (Kite Tricktip)

Please note: don't be "overpowered". You want to be "powered", this way you still have control. People do not know what overpowered is. It is another term thrown around freely. You can not jump if your overpowered because you can not hold an edge. You can't go up wind, you have very little control ...

Re: Rinse/Hang Gear: How do you do it in smaller spaces?

I never rinse just hang up and let dry. My harness and helmet I have a fan I throw them one to dry them. Booties and gloves I use a boot dryer. Every once and awhile I will wash my gear if it starts getting a smell.

Re: Adding a Big Air kite to my quiver

I would really consider the XR's if you just want to go big. The Orbit is what I went with for going big but it is not really a big air machine. They made it for going big and looping. At 12m your not going to be aiming for that. They do fly just fine with a low V bar that is what I used when I had ...

Re: North Reach LE scratch

North Reach: superb kite but be careful with the LE. Bullocks! This kind of damage is brand and model unrelated. Happens with any kites. Yeah I have had my share of kites that need repairs and others that don't. They are not made to be indestructible. Yes they could be made even more durable but th...

Re: North Reach LE scratch

I personally have all my leading edge tears repaired with a sewn on patch. I have made it work with a tear aid patch before on a small tear. I tend to ride very hard and crash kites violently sometimes. Your leading edge is under a lot of stress this is why I all ways get it sewn and not just a stic...
