Is it possible they wear the leashes in competition to avoid wasting valuable time in a heat retrieving their boards?

Yes, that IS the very idea of it, as others have mentioned :thumb:

What's the story on board leashes in the GKA? Does the GKA have a rule requiring them? For special situations maybe? Everyone is using them in this wipeout clip.


WOW that is some rad wipeout shots, love it :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

Re: Nice spray pictures - post them!

Last month February in CapeTown, Melkbos, 8 and then 6 m2 kites, on my new Bachshuster board, we had a splendid day, one of the very best:

Re: Foil board as directional? Anyone tried it?

There are other short thick waveboards that works both as a foilboard and a waveboard - go for these instead as it can work really well :thumb: 8) Peter Do you have any example in mind, working as short board? I only knew and tried the earlier models, some worked well, but knowing how Nicolas alway...

Re: Can I use a single control bar for all my kites?

Yes. I use the same bar length for my smallest 3.5 m2 all the way up to the 15 m2. Line length you could choose std 23 m for all your sizes, no problem. Only if the wind is on the limit, you will benefit hugely by having the 3 m extensions. But as such if the wind is in the sweetspot for the 12 m2, ...

The same has happened locally here now, lots of posts in the typical TT and Waveriding forums now, instead o...

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

Hydro foiling is pretty new to the kiting scene.At my local spot everyone was into SBs & I think foiling for this crew will probably be oriented towards surf foiling. There's a completely different crew (at a different spot) who are into jumping - my guess is they were also into jumping with TTs be...

Re: Bar Pressure

I don't think it changes the power, it just feels a little less because you have a longer lever from fulcrum when on outside setting . Some kites the setting are about a half inch apart and I personally can barely feel the difference. True, it does not change the "power" whatsoever... The feel is v...

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

It's worth it, even if you're not in it for light wind benefits. Very very fun. That is the best, and most simple answer, agree fully - it IS worth it, no doubt. Problem is, everybody try to imagine the benefits before they start, without knowing it is because it is a new dimension of fun, IMPOSSIB...
