Re: Trimming kite position deeper?

You have three potential solutions: - attach front lines a bit more backwards if that is possible, - pull in on the bar, - change kite if in fact this model has the tendency to go quickly to the edge (I do not know your kite to make that judgement). Just on a side note; when jibing in a strong gust ...

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 ...

On the German kitesurf forum (surfforum.oase.com) Gong is quite intensely discussed (experiences / reviews, build quality, price level) since some months, particularly in terms of their extremely attractively priced foil kit. The reviews are all ...

Re: Kiteboard Gong Lethal

Thanks, I have seen the videos but wanted some independent opinion on a specífic board, the Gong Lethal, and more in general their build quality.

If in the meantime somebody has made some experience and wants to share it, perfect!

I cannot find anything.

Re: Sometimes straps are the right choice

The action on the video looks really good to me. I cannot see what should be wrong with the style, I see absolutely no "stiffness" anywhere. On the other hand in some of the footage I saw in the GKA in Mauritius of the initial sessions the conditions were apparently quite rough and in my opinion the...

Re: wave kite with excellent low end?

No Question that would be the Neo. +1 My Neo 8m goes from 17 or even a bit less all the way to 35 knots at the absolute limit for me with SB. I weight 74kg. How do you hold on to an 8m neo at 35 knots on a surfboard? That's when I am getting overpowered on the 6m :o I am very overpowered, true. But...

Re: Wave Priority? My ass!

I think you bring up two interesting points:
- when is a wave a wave....some people have a different opinion as to if or if not wave rules apply.
- insistence on right of way by some sailors even if they could easily avoid a situation.

Re: Back Roll Advice needed

Thanks, taking my back hand off the bar right after take off is the first thing I will try. The reason I had not done this before is that I thought this may affect rotation or cause the kite looping the other way.

Re: Back Roll Advice needed

Thanks for all of the comments.

I do have my hands right in the middle but still pull too much on the rear hand.
Try to do as you said and accept some beating.

You are right, I meant kiteloop.
