Re: climate change /unpredictable weather/wind

Why nobody with rudimentary critical capacity takes climaterish predictions seriously? Because they are quite easy to debunk. But let me raise one concern, that I haven't heard in the press. One thing certain with elevated levels of CO2 is that there would be more green stuff consuming it. That is ...

Re: climate change /unpredictable weather/wind

Winter storm with 2 feet of snow, but in the first half of October...? Does that not fall under "extremer than usual weather", which is a consequence of climate change? Fall/Autumn has barely started and we're getting a full on blizzard. How ever you twist or turn that, that is not a good thing.

Re: Single strut kite comparison

Own an older 12m Mono and a 9m Ultra v2. The latter is awesome, nice and responsive. Big surf wing pocket board 78kg and I'm going in 8-9 knots no issue. Also use it on sb in waves, perfect drift and good upwind. Haven't had any issues with relaunch.

Re: climate change /unpredictable weather/wind

What I don't understand about people denying human made climate change is what do they believe is the narrative of the 99% of the world's scientist that confirm it. Like, why would there be a conspiracy with all these people involved? Who would have organized it, and why? Who would gain from making ...

Re: Getting past ocean breakers

Also consider the gear risks. A big wave pushing you to the beach in light onshore foilwinds can send your kite hindenburging down in the dumping shore break and could destroy your kite. Lose the foilboard in the same washout and it can get slammed on the beach by the shorebreak as well. Could becom...

Re: Getting past ocean breakers

Onshore light wind with waves/shore break is always a mission. As mentioned a short mast will get you going less far out so less body dragging. Another useful tip is to ride a big surf wing with loads of lift that pops up on the foil immediately - if you have only a few seconds between breaking wave...

Re: Kite/Megalooping 9m vs 10m

If you have the skills and balls to ride and loop well powered up, the 10 of course. A responsive and direct, quick steering kite that catches you after the loop is what you want - check out the Naish dash, it's superquick and direct. The 10 is definitely loopable.

Re: Travel - Cape Town / Great White shark cage diving

+1 for the seal swimming thing, it is awesome! Guaranteed interaction with the seals because they are always there, and they are curious and come check you out and jump around etc. It's in Houtbay so a lot closer than Gansbaai, and you can combine it with Houtbay market in summer to get great food a...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I hope Naish gets their hands on it ASAP. This stuff combined with the Naish quadtex will make such a crisp kite.
