Re: 13m Kites..... why so few?

Core makes a 13.5 that is pretty fun, rode the nexus 13.5 on an ocean side downwinder and loved it. I’m 210lbs

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

I lost pair after pair for years till I finally found these Chums Halfpipes. The have a strong hold, don’t slide off easily, and float if they ever do fully come off https://www.amazon.com/Chums-12110-Halfpipe-Eyewear-Retainer/dp/B003CJWBVC Lately I’ve been wearing polarized knockarounds because the...

Re: H4 batwing and space skate wing

In 210lbs, and I am just currently borrowing a foil from a friend. I’ve ridden the impulse, the space skate, and a Shinn model P. I’ve only been out twice on a kite, and I foiled behind a boat two times too ( beginner just getting up on foil )

Re: H4 batwing and space skate wing

Anyone tried the new Apollo wing? I haven’t seen a review yet but since it is similar to the popular 633 onda wing it may be a cheaper solution for an upgrade to a carbon moses. Apollo is similar and cheaper than 633 but it is also smaller and with Hoverglide fuselage makes a pretty heavy combinati...

Re: H4 batwing and space skate wing

I have the h5 and h4 space skate along with the whole mast system. Some people might go out and learn to foil in one session, not me. The h5 is a relatively small foil and put that on a short mast and you can learn where to stand and place foil. How to position board, how to get up, how to taxi, ho...

Re: H4 batwing and space skate wing

I'm about to buy my first foil for kiting (I'm 210lbs , been kiting 3 years on both TT and directionals). I'm leaning towards the hover glide system for the price and flexibility. Any guidance on getting the Space Skate 65 (w the fkite package) or the Infinity 76 (the fsurf package). Seems like the ...

Re: 2019 Watches

I've got about 60 sessions on an Apple Watch 4, but only about 20 on this one... Do not trust the sport band, mine came unclasped on a particularly hard impact with the water an is now at the bottom of the Agean sea. I switched to the sport loop ( not the band) and that has saved me a few more times...

Getting skunked in Paros, should I try to get to Rhodes?

It's not blowing here, seems to be off for three days then on for two.

Was wondering if people recommend Rhodes, as the forecast looks like mid 20s every afternoon. What's the best way to get there?

Re: Ended up choosing Paros , Greece

Thanks! Naxos seems like a no brainer, because it'll probably be worth a change after a week. My wife is leaving after the week in Paros, so I'll be on my own and I just wonder if its worth the effort to get to some of these other places to see different islands and different kite spots? I'd like to...

Ended up choosing Paros, Greece

Thanks everyone who commented on my previous post about where to go in July ( https://kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=2403126&p=1059200#p1059200 ) I ended up choosing Paros, Greece, and I'm going to go there for a week with my wife at the beginning of July. She's taking off after that first week,...
