Re: which is the best upwind bodydrag technique to recover the board?

I do a doggy paddle swim can pretty much go straight upwind (one hand on the bar, paddling with my other hand and kicking with my legs). In my experience it is the fastest way to get back to your board.

Not if you win.
The looser pays.

Lawsuit in the US...gonna be saving kiteforum financial situation! So he spammed the forum with some fake accounts? I have always taken the view that the only people who win in court are lawyers and would only go down the path of litigation if there was absolutely no other option. I would not assum...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

but these total tanks of boards that were not too fun to ride. :thumb: I wonder how many guys bought cheap Funny foil and quit because of lack of performance and weight. Or on the other hand bought one to test the sport and oh so quickly out grew it and found it hard to resell because word got out....

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

With all of the discounting and NOS inventory, I predict Slingshot will be the next to get out of kiteboarding. Slingshot have produced some of the best kites in the industry although their market share does seem to be in decline. Liquid Force probably decided to cut the kitesurfing side of their b...

For me it is kiting.
Insane kiting 😃

Just please, no one else try this...so many things can go wrong.
Totally just because you are landing on water doesn’t make it safe. If he jumped in the water from that height without a kite he could die or be seriously injured

Re: Full face helmet for foiling?

Correct. All this gear is making us feel invincible. Far from it. One might wear a helmet with cage and never ever tell us about a nightmare of catching bar end in a cage. Or a line. Impossible? If someone wants to look like an ice hockey player while kite surfing, I can only imagine him driving a ...

Re: Should Toby start a crowdfunding to save KF?

Yeah FB is not really a good alternative IMO. FB is "free" but they have no obligation to keep the information. If we all contribute to KF I would like to see a model where we can be sure that the data is kept, backed up, and maybe a few trusted players have access to this data in case Toby is unab...

Re: Should Toby start a crowdfunding to save KF?

There is some truth that forums are dying because of social media abit like how he old bbs system died when the internet came in. Kiteboarder in the uk died out and its content was probably replaced by facebook etc. Kiteforum is a more resiliant because it is a global central source for kitesurfing ...
