Re: Stomach muscles

My stomach hurts much less now that I jump better without forcing on bad timed jumps

Re: Which kite is the easiest to re-lunch at low winds?

My next LEI for hydrofoiling will be a 1 strut. Strutless is just not my cup of tea. I seriously doubt you can easily relaunch a Cloud after the canopy is filled with water, unless the wind is super strong. This sounds amazing! yesterday i tried to follow your instructions at about 8-10 knots in cho...

Re: Which kite is the easiest to re-lunch at low winds?

I seriously doubt you can easily relaunch a Cloud after the canopy is filled with water, unless the wind is super strong. When a cloud gets water on the canopy or simply messed up in some other way, I pull in a couple meters of one rear line. When that tip becomes the most upwind part of the kite, w...

Re: Which kite is the easiest to re-lunch at low winds?

True but the reason I got a Cloud 13.5 was to go out in super light wind, and it's super super light wind when my Cloud can't stay in the air. So maybe it's my skills, but I find it really difficult to relaunch when the wind is just marginal, and worse than a struted kite that will at least drift, m...

Re: Which kite is the easiest to re-lunch at low winds?

Thanks for sharing, but I won't characterize this as easy relaunch. Slingshot Rally is easy, no need for all these maneuvers. stopping a kite's one wingtip from stalling the whole kite onto its back is a real issue with super light wind relaunch and has everything to do with early recognition and ap...

Re: Which kite is the easiest to re-lunch at low winds?

For anyone who take the time to figure out how to get a cloud to catch wind, they are pretty easy to get back up in really light wind. I have reverse relaunched in deep water many times in winds that were just not enough to get the kite up on a wingtip. For anyone who does not take the time to deve...

Re: Sweat shop kite manufacturing

No, they are doing it for long term strategic reasons, but normal people benefit from these projects, instead of all the colonist crap and slavery. Now are you juvenile, or do you just sound like one? China is colonizing Africa, really? By building roads, rails, power plants and other infrastructure...

Re: Sweat shop kite manufacturing

China is colonizing Africa, really? By building roads, rails, power plants and other infrastructures since the 1960s? Let me guess, you never been to Africa, nor China. Matteo: West rose from the poverty or built its prosperity using horrible methods: conquests, genocides, slavery and colonies were ...

There is this one too for a similar price. It has a trim but no safety / flag out line... thoughts?

Another question: how do you get a BRM bar if you're not in the USA?
You can use comGateway.com with reasonable rates.
