Re: 2019 Watches

I have a Garmin Fenix 3 (the one before the 5). I'm sure you should be able to do beter than "other" for a kitesurfing app. I have a "Windkitesurf" app but I didn't lose time looking for one, I expect there will be other/better ones. I'm sure you can also quite easily put together your own, a friend...

Re: 30+m breach??

If Maarten as you said is such talent and jumping always high, more than 20+ m, than why he (or his firends) not recording regulary his jumps and sessions with Goproo cameras, even if he riding in such places where is big chances to do height records. strange. Woo is not proof, video is best proof....

Re: King of the Air 2019 - all info here - riders confirmed

so taking home $400 is possible.. i agree, that prize money for that risk from a yearly $6 billion turnover company is a joke. riders really got to be educated to make the right choices for themselves, not be blinded by todays daily instafame. That sounds a bit patronizing.. I think the majority of...

Re: King of the Air 2019 - all info here

Somehow I'm a bit disappointed. Only two people (PM and CM) that weren't there last year ?

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

I live/kite in Northern Mozambique. In my 50's, spent around 30 years or so closish to the equator. I've tried sunglasses (seaspecs) but I hate them for kiting, except for downwinders. I misjudge distances (landings) and I guess I probably try to be careful not to lose them or slam them hard, like a...

Re: improving upwind angle

I don't have a foil, nor a kite foil. However it appears to me that the direction of pull of the kite is the direction the lines have. So the answer to your question is yes, you will be limited by your kite, a kite that flies closer to the edge of the window (a foil for instance), can improve - to s...

Re: Switch to North from Cabrinha Kites ???

However, is there a general difference between North and Cabrinha regardless the type of kite which differentiates the two brands? I don't think life is as simple as that. For me that question is comparable to asking "is there a general difference between say Renault and Peugeot, or Nissan and Mits...

Re: Small modification to Moses T60 board idea - your thoughts?

My thoughts - probably not to be paid too much attention to - are that I wouldn't risk it. I'd look at bolts such as Grigorib has suggested. Preferably only with thread where it is needed, not necessarily fully treaded

Re: Bandit 8th edition bladder question

Not sure if you're interested but I've bought bladders of older models at wanikou.com, they seem to have a lot. So far no quality issues and they appear friendly enough and communicate well.
