Re: Board shorts?

I wear long pants at times and there are quite a few others who do too.
Why...
1. protection from the sun
2. some cuts and scrapes protection for those times riding in shallow water or reef

Don't care what is fashionable; Don't care what's cool.....just go kiting already

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

BTW don´t use a seat belt in your car. It might happen that it will break your neck in an accident when belt sits too high. Super dangerous! ;-) And also deactivate your ABS in your car. It will only make you drive more risky because it makes you feel invincible. ;-) Or approach it from the other s...

Re: Skydiving with a kite

Yeah.....let's celebrate this ridiculousness of this stunt of self-promotion that has absolutely nothing to do with kiting..

"It worked!"...Yes of course it did you stupid...gravity always works

Nice .... Tnx Vol!
But that's a regular kiteloop and not so much a megaloop.

Anyway I'm sure it's just a matter of time
what is megaloop 😃
10 or 20 meters?
If you have to ask, you are not MEGA looping it yet :thumb:

Re: light wind twintip (but not doors)

Maybe a Ocean Rodeo Mako?
Never ridden one, but a few riders here have one and they all say it's a good light wind board too, especially the bigger sized board

Re: Wing thing any fun without proper waves?

So I live in Oslo Norway and have a longish drive to the nearest kite spots. I've been intrigued be the possibility to jump in the water with a wing anywhere close to the city for evening sessions after work. But is it any fun without proper waves? We'll get small wind waves here, but how big must ...

Re: Harness hook broke during kiteloop

What is the big deal here....stuff breaks; get used to it or don't use it!

Accepting the above will leave you two choices: you ride it until something breaks and deal with it or you periodically replace old gear so you hopefully don't have to deal with it.

Personally I ride it till it breaks

Re: Kites for foil freestyle

Would love to ask you guys to recommend a solid kite for freestyle foiling. I've been flying strutless BRM Clouds for four years and just realized that while they're epic for wave riding, they just do not stack up when going for bigger freestyle stuff on the foil. Lots of kite inversions during hig...

Re: Looks like Kite racing is back in play with IOC

That's how it should be! Making a relay race is a joke. Men's racing is pretty close between the top competitors but not so in the women's. The result of a mixed relay race would be the same as the result of a women's only race. I agree with that, but I think that the number of medals for the Olymp...
