Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Aaah, then I understand. I dont need 1 m2 steps, only below 7 m2 it is almost a must for good waveriding sweetspots. But when having 1 m2 steps, the total cost is about the same, as you wear half as much on the single kite now. Having +200 sessions per year I ride quite some I think. The other advan...

Re: How to describe the windstrength

27 to 31 knots average - the gusts are probably pretty normal in this wind, so I would only mention this if extreme, otherwise the average wind is what we share around here. Usually describing by what size I use, if shared with friends, then they will know exactly which size to pick depending on whe...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Hi flaps1111 I am not the right one to answer this one. I rode the Ultra 6 m2 two and a half years ago, when it came out. Regarding size span, yes it is possible with 9 and 6, definitely. Not on a surfboard where it is too much, no doubt. But on a hydrofoil you can stretch the range somewhat more. W...

I was told that adding a front foot strap will help completing 360, do you agree? (currently strapless)
Yes, it is super easy if having a strap, can almost not go wrong, compared to strapless.

Re: Self landing and launching

''Waveriders usually always launch and land alone around here, even if not alone on the beach, for many reasons.'' And what are the many reasons? I totally do not understand why you do not let someone else do it if there are any. Here in the Netherlands everyone always helps each other and that is ...

Re: Self landing and launching

Guys my background is windsurf. I am new in kitesurf. Why everyone does not like to self landing and launching? Are kites fragiles? No, kites are fine to self land / launch...I do it on a regular basis, its just that getting help is both safer and easier. Indeed yes, you can easily launch and land ...

Re: similar hydrofoil boards to groove skate

Think you are right jakemoore, Ketos apparently started the trend with this extreme scoop on shorter boards long time ago, and Groove and others followed. That is great, if some finds something that works really well, others go that way too of course, this is not copying (unless a china direct copy)...

Re: Different Kite and Bar Brand

It doesn't matter if some bars or kites got a bit different length rear versus frontlines. You adjust your rear lines/pigtails at the kite, and any bar will fit any kite :thumb: It is not rocket science.... Of coarse, if you are a beginner you should have someone trim your kite, and check things - b...

Re: Is it just me or does pumping a foil...

True, looks "odd" indeed when surfers do this :-?
Amazing but not aesthetic in any way :roll:

Luckily we don't need to pump when using a kite, no matter how small :rollgrin:
