Re: Heli loop tips?

Btw. The reason you can do them in transitions is that you get the kite close to the edge already by take off by edging hard upwind and stearing the kite slower.

Re: Heli loop tips?

To Heli loop you need to have the kite at the edge of the window. Your small jump didn't allow the kite to fly close enough to the edge so you looped it too deep in the power zone. Spend some time making downloop turns until you are fully comfortable with them on both tacks. Then go for a nice high ...

Re: Theft Story? Tell Yours

Just yesterday - backdoor window smashed and jacket stolen along with phone and wallet. Luckily they didn't take my 1 day old Flysurfer Soul 7 and my friends Core kite in the trunk 😨. I could follow the phone via gps for a while but the police didn't want to use that information. All they got was a ...

Re: Missing kitesurfer found after spending night on marshland

I really like the idea of LTE watch! Now that is a safety feature which I would pay for as it wouldn't get in the way. Any idea if they make an android version? There are a number of Chinese Android alternatives like this cheap one for about $50 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=...

Re: Cork Sheet for Traction?

It's alright. You need to ensure that you have glued the whole surface well. Any unglued pockets will swell up when wet and become weak.

Re: Peter Lynn Nova

Is it just me or does that look like a blatant copy of a Hyperlink?? Ha ha you could say the same about most kites/products targeting the same market. Consider the Hyperlink against the HQ Matrixx which came out in the first edition in, I think 2011 - maybe even 2010. Long before the Hyperlink. The...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

Sounds like challenging conditions. How hard is it to self land these kites? The Matrixx is super easy to self land. Never had an easier kite to land. The CA Wave is a little trickier because it doesn't backstall well and also it turns easily. My best bet is to bring it low to the side and grap bot...

Re: Concept Air Smart Wave 6.5 & 4.5 & 3 and now 8.5

I tried something different yesterday and went out on twintip with the wave 6.5. Wind was average 16m/s but quite gusty to the point were water was being blown away. It didn't really work very well. The kite is too sensitive to lulls and is not very enjoyable riding powered up. But as soon as you go...

Re: Will we see the first foil kite at King of the Air 2019?

I guess we see what we wanna see... Then I see what looks like a foilkite going to 5th line safety with instant powerloss. Ram airs are DANGEROUS!! Even if what we're seeing here is a deliberate flag-out on the 5th line (rather than a completely uncontrolled ram air collapse), it begs the question:...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSmG9xK_8Vs Back in 2009 with Psycho4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSmG9xK_8Vs What a disastrous advertisement for ram airs!! Check out the ram air kite collapsing and deforming between 28s -> 34s. This could've easily ended in tears, injuring the rider and/or the...
