Re: Near fatality at Hermanus today December 12 2018

I'm just wondering why it's commonly acceptable to do do kitesurfing without helmet and impact vest. If you drive a car you buckle up, if you ride motorbike you've helmet, but 99% of expert kitesurfers do it without any protections. So inconsiderate. IMHO a conventional helmet reduces risk when on ...

Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

North will come out with 2020 lineup in mid 2019 Have you ever thought why they actually introduce products half a year or less before the actual year? Many countries and big markets have their kiteseasons over new years. New products have to match with their seaons too, so they could prep for seas...

Re: two board quiver

Sounds like you already know the answer: 3 boards, 1 kite. Rig for the surfboard mid range. If wind increases, grab your twintip and go do some jumps. If wind drops, go rip around on your foil. Having all 3 on beach allows for quick changes. If you're travelling light, you can drop 1 board by havin...

Re: Help a student out and load up your Karma account

I did the questionaire. I did dozens before, they are always coming from the marketing discipline of business. Have never seen one from product development and innovation. I find this is unfortunate for obvious reasons.

Re: Vote for 7 Kiting Wonders of the World

Nothing that has crowds can be paradise! I'll take my windy, bleak, crowdless, wetsuit-wearing spot any day over those heinous jam-packed tourist kiting locations. 1146983_10152165603689832_960119416_o.jpg Well said. I fully agree.. @Toby, the topic title is 'kiting wonders of the world' not ' kiti...

Re: Moses W873 2100cm wing discussion

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Marlboroughman, there are lots of articles claiming that there is global warming as well. How do you choose which articles to believe ? And the ratio between articles confirming and denying global warming is changing rapidly. Question is: will the Marlboroughmen believe the very last scientist that...
