Re: Chrono V3 Vs Flysurfer Soul.

I bought a Chrono 1 and Chrono 2 kites. My biggest complaint with both of those kites was lack of wind range and lack of stability. My Sonic 1 and 2 were much more similar when it comes to stability and still had much better wind range than the respective Chrono 1 & 2. The stability and wind range o...

Re: Best city in world for kitesurf vacation

Corpus Christi comes to mind. It is not a destination city, but the kiting is great.

For snowkiting, Salt Lake City.

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12 difficult to handle at the top end

How much power you feel comfortable handling depends a lot on your experience, riding style, and how gusty the wind is that day. I have friends that fly two sizes of kite smaller than others that weigh the same. It does take a different riding style and willingness to ride super powered up to boost ...

Re: Trying to get into Kiteboarding is this a good deal?

It would be like buying a POS mountain bike at Walmart if you wanted to learn how to downhill mountain bike. :rollgrin:

Re: Biggest and Fastest Fleet in Years Set to Ignite Formula Kite Worlds

I wish it was freestyle. Yes, racing takes commitment, skill, and ambition. Too bad it is like watching paint dry.

I guess the upside is that we won’t see an insurgence of newbies sparked by Olympic glory to kite. 😜

Re: New to this, is it realistic to teach myself?

For any others new to the sport. Step 1 buy a trainer kite and fly it until you are extremely proficient. 2. Take a lesson. 3. talk to local kiters to find out what kite they use and why. Ask for suggestions. 4. Buy you first kite. It is tempting to just go out and buy the gear, but when you don’t u...

Re: statement from Lou

Back in 2001, Lou and most of the Maui crew said the same thing about 4-Line kites. They thought they were for noobs. The argument was that you should just edge the board.

Think of where kiteboarding would be today without 4-line kites? It would be a very niche sport. :bye:

Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

One more comment: you have every right to call the wastewater treatment plant and ask to speak with a representative in person. I think you would be surprised to find out the information that they will share if you are polite and non-accusatory. You might find that they care about the quality of the...
