Re: Speed of kitesurfing vs. windsurfing

Making up lies that I stated flat area was directly comparable in terms of power production, between wind surfing sails and kites is more than “a correction” It’s to deliberately mislead and discredit. Something I won’t stand for. It is a simple fact that to get equivalent power of a 7 m sail you ne...

Re: Speed of kitesurfing vs. windsurfing

You want to turn this into a shit fight clearly....

Not wanting to burst anyone’s efficiency bubble but when we’re windsurfers last seen using 21m sails? Yes that’s an extreme but if it’s 12m kite weather then they are on 6.5m sails recreationally, racers maybe 7.8m The board to sail, board to kite ratio is so far out it’s not even funny. We use tiny...

Re: Speed of kitesurfing vs. windsurfing

If the quote is down to a perceived lack of detail then yeah I couldn’t be bothered, if it’s because I should have written water conditions not wind conditions? Then sue me.. Anyway it’s not been until relatively recently decent performance foils were capable of sustaining speed not just peaking, th...

I love riding without a leash when the right opportunities arise.
What additional freedoms does this offer? Genuinely puzzled how no leash enriches the experience? Especially given how unobtrusive modern set ups are.

Recreational gear for both? Windsurfing is quicker especially in any kind of chop On race gear up and down wind, kite hydrofoil easily Windsurf slalom gear fastest all around again especially in chop Kite speed gear and big speed boards, fastest if it’s flat by a good margin I suppose the best way ...

Re: North Kiteboarding Meeting in Daklah

I suspect most of the previous North dealers stayed with Boards&more so the new North dealers are mostly new to the game. It would be interesting to know what the proportion between new and ex boards &more dealers is. OR they are one of the biggest in season discount stores that were never allowed ...
