Re: Squall Lofting Fatality In Normandy

BKSA training (or at least the BKSA kite school I took lessons with) includes discussion of weather fronts and safety.

Its not as fun learning in cold water and thick wetsuits though so a lot of people still holiday somewhere warm to learn

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar...

Hi I own both and I am a bit more sceptical with the Click Bar than most users. There are advantages and disadvantages for both and in my mind the high price for the Click Bar is not justifies at all. The only reason I have one is that I got it for 300 Euro semi new (looked completely unused). Quad...

Re: Anyone tried foiling with a wing?

Thanks @Adolfo!

Its one of those things that I'm trying to see how it would fit into my particular situation. The only person who I have met who has one says it works for him foiling in cross offshore wind as he is more comfortable with a swim back in with one of those and a floaty board

Re: Anyone tried foiling with a wing?

Am I right in thinking they might work well as a high wind setup for a kite foil for those not chasing speed? E.g. for your low wind setup you'll have a little buoyancy in your board anyway. Then once the wind picks up (and invariably gets more gusty) then instead switching to a 4/5m kite, you chang...

Re: ON Kiteboarding (New Wings)

Hmm. Seeing that in the snow is interesting. Its always horribly gusty whenever it snows here so its never really that much fun with a kite and snowboard. Might actually be more fun with a wing thing

Re: New Woo jump record: 33.9m

He rides Core kites in all of his videos.

As an aside its an entertaining set of videos he has on youtube. They are all about drumming up business for his kite coaching business but still worth a watch if you have some free time.

Re: Honest advice lol

I want a high jumping ,mega looping kite. I don't want some watered down sissy looper. The issue with my current kites is its hard to get to the height I would like to achieve. There is your issue. Kites that pull hard in the loops often need more work to get the big height. Easy to jump kites are ...

Re: neoprene boots/socks recommendation

These are my favourite boots so far: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/500-3mm-neo-surf-boots-black-id_8403244.html Cheap. Don't cut up in the stones. Haven't stretched as much as some of the bigger brands. Easily available. Buy a really snug pair and wear them around the house with socks on to stretch th...

Re: Hydrofoiling in 10 knots - Is it that hard?

10 knots is fine for my cold(er) climate temperatures for a rider of low to moderate skill. Relaunch isn't a problem at that wind either although you may need to wait for a gust. 8 knots however is hard. At 8 knots you need good relaunch technique or more hydrofoil specific kites (lighter - capable ...

Re: Eleveight RS 2020 review

No, I didn't get around to changing any of the settings. I'm just a typical free rider so the stock settings seemed the right ones to try and I only had a moderate time window to ride. It looked fairly easy to change the settings and aside from a quick check to see they were both on the same setting...
