Re: Foil kite handling in high wind

I'm a LEI veteran getting to know his first foil kite... I've seen videos of two main launch techniques: hot launch (which I've had more success with) after weighing the trailing edge down with snow, OR folding a tip, weighing it down while the rest of the kite trails downwind. With the second meth...

Re: Freestyle Board Upwind ability

I don't like any of the "boot proof" boards. I just ride the Jaime Textreme with boots anyway. If it breaks it breaks. I do know that if you put boots on the Raptor LTD it will break but the Jaime is pretty strong, and I've never broken one yet, as much as I have tried. The Gambler is an awful board...

Re: Core pigtails

Wacky. It's normal to have uneven pigtails at the kite end. So for instance the bridle ends then there's a pigtail that ends in a loop and also a pigtail that ends in a knot. Brands will often adjust the size of the bridle pigtails to make the lines come out correctly so that they are even at the ba...

Re: Single vs Double Skin

The double skin should be more efficient given the same wind speed. Just think about it you have control over not only the top of the wing but also the bottom. The advantage the peak has is that it is lighter so it can move faster and generate more apparent wind when looping. Of course the formulas ...

Re: Lightest bar pressure 11m kite for old school tricks!

nothing beats the soul! Yes it's a foil but it feels like a tube kite incredibly reliable in the air, and because it's a foil you get much more hang time compared to a tube kite. The rest of the kite world hasn't caught up yet, but for now, 2022, soul is the kite to do board offs, jesus walks, hand ...

Re: Boots?

boots you are more likely to get knee injuries, straps you are more likely to get ankle injuries. in straps especially if you crank them down really tight you can get one foot in one foot out, then when you land, you can break a leg quite easily because you have the straps too tight to get the other...

Re: which is the best model GoPro for kiting?

you dont need the max lens for horizon leveling in the 10. Just push the button that says "I have max lens" and lie to the camera, done horizon leveling. not sure about the 9, different firmware. I dont like the max lens mod. You should just get the max instead if you want super wide view. You can,...
