Re: Wave SST - Upwind?!

Just a thought from many years riding slingshot kites, their design ethos and the way they fly. I have been flying and enjoying them since the first Fuels, and the trick upwind has always been good technique and board selection. Its the kind of kite that will let you know where it is and deliver roc...

Re: Waist Harness Bruising Ribs ?

Harness riding up is because you are letting the kite too high above you and not leaning back enough against the pressure. You should be transmitting pressure through the harness to your feet and to the board.

Re: Riding without a (proper) Quick Release

+1 is used internationally you will find it even in AU Freedom is a funny thing, it doesn’t mean you should do anything you want. And while you may think not wearing a helmet or having a functioning quick release and a leash ultimately affects only you, that is not true. this is a ridiculous assert...

Re: Kite Turn Accelerator by Bruno Legaignoux

the fundamental of a tube kite steering system is that they twist the kite by having tension on one front line and the opposite rear line, pulling both same sides has virtually no effect I think it would have an effect. Two line trainers only pull on one side and they turn super fast Well it doesn'...
