Re: Surviving a death loop

Are you ever unhooking? If not, get a hookless setup (eg slider rope with stainless steel ring). Like this, you avoid the issue with tangling lines on hook systemically. ^ This. Was looking to get one for a Dakine shorts harness but not sure what I can get for that? Anyone can recommend what works ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Lighter kites fly better ;)
Those who kite a bit longer already probably remember Wipika and Takoon kites, which were so much ahead of the competition in the mid 2000, with the competition typically building kites like heavy trucks instead of fast and nimble racing cars...

Re: Kitesurf holiday with kids club/ childcare?

Boavista, Hotel Riu

We used to go there when our daughter was younger. Had a very nice kid's program, and really nice kite conditions during the winter (especially if you are into waves).

Re: Is strapless overrated?

tomo style boards are so terrible for kiting unless u go super small, even then the wide tail gets easily out of control and front end in the way of turns. I can explain this statement only if you either did never ride a Tomo shape (like a Vader or Vanguard), or you did try one that was sized for p...

Re: Ozone Catalyst V1 vs Blade Trigger

Re: Kalpitiya / Sri Lanka report 2012

Hey Leo,
I know the Kalpitiya lagoon and Kapalady lagoon of course...
Actualy, you and I were throwing Kiteloops together on Kalpitiya lagoon back in 2012 ;)

But I thought there might be a place on Puttalam Lagoon suitable for kitesurfing as well, that's why I was asking.

Re: Kalpitiya / Sri Lanka report 2012

@ Ruuk : Amazing news :) Looking forward to some fellow kiters on our beach! Btw, I'm in Kandathoduwa at the moment. Last week, we had some quite epic surf conditions with nice, strong wind :D @ Ruuk : in a week, a friend of mine will join us. He's an intermediate, so I want to take him to a lagoon....
