Re: Why not more canards ?

This thread from 2017, what is the latest regarding canards? Lots of stoke about these, they turn more like a surfboard with rear foot pressure (stated, I dont know), more efficient and safe. We dont see any around here, so no local feedback, and I rode the first small one for one and a half month, ...

Re: Action Cams in 2019 whats everyone using

I just bought a Rylo. Have not gotten it yet but seems to be sweet. I have a go pro 6 and cannot stand it. It never works. either the battery is not charged on the remote or it switches mode mid kiting session. And the software is not intuitive. That is odd, and amazing we can have so opposite expe...

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.

Re: Nice spray pictures - post them!

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?

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, ...
