Leave it off centre and you'll find it easier to put your board on: This video covers it (watch to the end to see an example of the problem you described) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zU4VeGuRnc&t=180s +1 IKO determined that keeping...

Re: Line lengths for mega looping

That’s right, Short line kite will catch you a bit better but will be more aggressive. As far as learning I thought bandit 24m line was pretty hard to learn to loop on, I probably didn’t have great body position, it kept yanking me into Superman and tended to stall, I had tendancy to sheet back in q...

Re: Anyone else dodging "flying fish"?

Re: Core xr5 slow

Make sure you sheet in all the way when you steer it, I did notice that you need to be quite powered for it to be responsive since at teh bar it's on / off when sheeting in and out.

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

i have had a bruise over my cheek bones, definitly can't let it hang around your neck on tether, after landing a jump it will swing and hit you in the face and it hurts :o :cry: :lol:

I bring one of those on vacation but usually i try to fit a helmet.

Re: GoPro Head strap

Helmet mount gives much better results.
