Tacking after 10 sessions - that's amazing! Been going two years and I still haven't managed one!

I reckon you'd do your back in holding that after a while.

Re: Core Nexus in Gusty Wind

Maybe the nicest kite I have ever flown. It just looks and feels 'right'. Very precise - always goes exactly where you put it. Great for gusty conditions as it's so well behaved and sits a little way back in the window so won't over-fly. Not so hot in marginal conditions, where kites like it's count...

Re: Stop this thing

In fairness, during those early stages, the safest bet is to head gradually further and further upwind, fully sheeted out and kite high. As you progress though, bearing away is the best way to slow down as you will lose power that way. But until you have the balance to do that, it may result in a ha...

Re: Moses Vorace 2016 vs. version 2? The MAST.

I have the same 2016 mast. It's a superbe mast and hard to justify changing for the newer straight one. Plus they look really nice. Yes the only difference might be with the wing being slightly further back, when using in conjunction with newer boards without tracks and using footstraps. I guess if ...

Minor repairs to carbon wing

I'm looking for some sort of black epoxy filler in small quantity to fill minor chips in edge of carbon wing - nothing structural, just to tidy things up. I want something that sets quickly and is easy to sand. Something like Solarez, but I want it in black so don't have to paint. What are others us...

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

One of the nice things about kitesurfing is NOT having a great big sail right in front of you like windsurfing.
