Re: Explosive Decompression! - No puncture.

yeah but if a valve is loose it doesn't let all the air out in seconds, takes at least 1 or 2 minutes. If it all comes out in 30 seconds it's usually a plug coming loose. I still think it's really weird and might be something nobody has thought of yet. I would try to reproduce it.

Re: Explosive Decompression! - No puncture.

Never seen that happen in a simple turn. I've often had kites loose air in the middle of a turn, but only after a really hard crash, where you just slam the kite into the ground and either the inflate valve or a strut valve pops open, you relaunch and then the kite instantly deflates. But after gett...

Re: Q-power line

@foil nothing, I was trying to do a knot so I can attach a loop. What do you do do make a knot that you can attach a loop: the same 8 knot ? Yes. Make that same figure 8 loop. You'll have a small loop after the knot that you won't use that's the best way to maintain the strength of the lines. I usu...

Re: Offshore windshift ---> Lost Kite

Neverpack down and never deflate. Put the kite in a u position lay on top of it and you can find it very easy to swim up a wind try it sometime. Move the spreader hook to the side so you don't pole a hole in the kite

Re: Megaloop Judging

you get points both for distance and for height, so the hotter you can land and stick it the better. No points for soft landings after a bunch of safety loops on the way down. It's pretty dangerous landing hot in chop, so maybe they are just doing their best. These guys in the competition are probab...

Re: What are the Differences between an Wave kite and a Freeride Kite

wave kites are supposed to be able to drift (so it doesn't crash when wave riding) and relaunch quick (in case it does crash) freeride kites need to boost but a lot of times it's just marketing.

This is not maths, there are no absolute rules it is just loose description and opinion. There are no hard and fast parameters for the name of any board.
Best description yet.

Re: What's the difference between a beginner, intermediate, and advanced twin tip?

the big difference is cost. beginners are reluctant to spend $800 for a board. Intermediates will spend that much cause they know a $400 board is usually garbage. advanced riders will spend another $200 or so for the carbon fiber. There's no difference in terms of rocker, width, blah blah blah, thos...
