Re: South Africa first timer

I don’t need to kite all day. A good 1-3 hrs session is enough, then energy is gone. Remember, it’s trick after trick. 18 or chilling in the whirlpool 😉 Where can one go if the wind is too strong in CT ? I guesss with the powerful wind of CT I just need 20 knots. As Exal said Shark bay could work, ...

Re: South Africa first timer

Hpr: anywhere in the world this will happen if you leave valuables visible in the car. Agreed, but it's still amazing how many people leave sunglasses in full view. Also we tend to rush to get on the water and might forget our phone, so just a reminder to always remember to check when locking your ...

Re: North Prototype

Since Jesse's kite was lying on the beach in the middle of the spectator area (not in the competitor rigging area, maybe on purpose :wink: ) for a long time after the finals I took a few pics. Looks like an 8m and will be named R1 :lol:

Re: South Africa first timer

There's been quite a few break inns into cars at Kitebeach parking area this last season or two with kites often being stolen - even on busy days with lots of kiters around, and with 'carguards' around too. It seems the criminals have figured out that the gear is worth lots of money. If you park the...

Re: Cab 2018 bar's black plastic depower line, is the sheet in/out smooth when turning the bar or is it "jammed"?

I have a 2018 and 2015 bar. the 2018 middle insert is stainless and the hole and shape of the sides is bigger than the aluminium 2015 (not sure when they re-designed it, but it was already upgraded in the 2017 models). The motion in the newer models is smooth and does not jam when steering the kite ...

Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

I don't think a former winner of the KOTA has to qualify if he wants to compete. I didn't see any qualifiying video of Langeree The top riders from the previous comp dont have to submit videos. Ok I just checked the KOTA page, the top 9 riders from this year automatically qualify for the next comp,...

Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

So then I assume Nick won't be in KOTA again next year for 2 reasons:

1 He doesn't have gear (I would think he cannot still ride Cab in a comp like KOTA)
2 He didn't submit a video entry (unless I missed it).

Re: Alternative KOTA rules

There is a video on youtube of the Cabrinha design team testing one of the kites in Maui, can’t remember if it was the FX or Switchblade, but anyway they made a small bridle adjustment and when Nick looped it his timing was completely off. At 2016 KOTA Lewis oversteered slightly and it almost cost h...

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

Thanks, will try this. I get kiters elbow in my left arm from mostly looping to the left. My way of dealing with it is to try looping equal amounts both ways which spreads the load to both arms and reduces the overall amount of looping to the left per session. Although it’s still sensitive it does s...
