Re: pre or post kiting routine to limit soreness

Stretch before and maybe try coconut water before riding. (I find it helps me.. maybe its the potassium or placebo). Beer immediately after (always! :) If that's not possible, water and carbs help recovery. Get a foam roller and roll around on it (because you'll look funny doing it, and the pain is ...

Re: Drop Your $&@#ing Kite!

Yeah, steer clear and get yourself away from those who can't/won't play nice. Crowds suck, and some locations have general etiquette issues (bunch of beginners or pros hogging the one flat spot, or the entrance/exit). Having a negative experience with people really spoils the fun, and sometimes take...

Re: Pain at the Elbow - Kiter's Elbow: Treatment & Prevention

The problem, in my experience, yours may vary, comes from muscle imbalances in the arm causing misuse of the joint. Not so much overuse but inappropriate use. Sometimes the muscles themselves are the underlying problem, sometimes it is the facia, sometimes it is the nerves, sometimes it is the tend...

Re: Are You Progressing as a Kiter? 8 Water Checks. How did you fare?

Thanks for the video and do keep it up. I agree with Matteo that watching these helps us advise those who are trying to learn. This one is probably good for those who only get to ride a few times a year, or are early in their learning, so great reminders. As for me, yeah, still progressing. Nailed 2...

Re: selfish short term kite industry

Well, I wouldn't worry about it. The general populace keeps generating 40-50 year olds at about the same rate as 15-25 year olds.
