Re: Airline Baggage Weight Experience - pls add yours

Thai Airways - Dubai to Bangkok/Phuket I nearly ended up paying in Dubai (my start destination). For a family of 4 we had 3 cases, one kite bag (with 2 Flysurfer kites) and one board bag (with a 140 cm board). We were under our weight allowance overall (76 kg vs 80 kg). However, the officious dick ...

Kitesurfers NOT banned in Dubai

I see a misinformed poster has put up a thread stating Kitesurfers are banned in Dubai. This is not true. Surfers (i.e. people on surfboards who ride waves but not using kites) have been repeatedly found in designated swimming areas and quite rightly kicked out. I sympathise with them as Dubai has l...

Re: Speed 2 19M in 6.2 MPH Avg. or Pipe dream??

demo demo demo. A good local dealer of any brand of kites will have a selection suited to the local conditions that you can try. My local FS dealer let me try out a Speed 2 19 and 15 and a Door 64 and 54. I spent a couple of hours trying them in various combo's before plumping for the S2 19 and the ...

Re: SUP Lessons

Who gives a rat's arse? Surely is available for you SUPpers to all bore yourselves to death with stand up plodding? And can anyone tell me why the UK kitesurf mag has decided to contribute to the destruction of the rainforest by including an SUP magazine for free with each edition? ...

Re: Spleene Door question

Borrow a Monster Door and ride around on that for a while...then when you go back to the 64 you'll think it's agile!!! :D On a serious note; I spent a lot of time practising basic edge and release technique again when I got mine. Holding the kite low and just trying to get as much air as possible wi...

Re: Who has actually flown a big bow

I test flew a bunch of gear before settling on a Flysurfer Speed 2 and Door 64 combination. I did fly the Assault 2 19 (a friend of mine is a local dealer for both brands). The Assault 2 was slowwwwww and heavy. It had very little difference in performance vs the Assault 16. At the same time I tried...

What's the deal with light weight boards?

Thinkin' about getting a new board...I like 135-138 cm x 38-40 cm in general. Anything shorter feels..well..too short really. Anyway: Should I get the lightest board I can afford? Why is light weight an advantage or not? What are the weights of some boards out there? Will be using it in 14-25 knots,...

Whoops...can see why my mail might have come across the wrong way there! Not trying to be evangelical at all. RE and HT both nice kites to fly. I guess I got a bit caught up in the 20 footer info request. It's not BS but I don't have any pics of a windmeter and me on the kite to prove it. Try it you...
