Re: The Safety Topic: please post your experience and advice!

Well, like you said, nothing happened BECAUSE the wind was very light, and while it's no excuse to be off your guard, we do generally understand light wind conditions as safer. I can, however, think of at least 3 exceptions where light winds are more dangerous than strong winds: offshore winds, big...

Re: Pump lube

This has nothing to do with the thread really other than I'm really tired and I read the title as Pube Lump.

Re: S-Mart Protocol (landing and launching procedure)

That is incredibly complicated!
Why do I need a compass? Is it not dangerous holding a compass while launching a kite?

Re: Which is better for heavy weight rider Evo or Rebel ?

I'm a big boi, I inflate my blades to 9psi (which is actually in range for them) but when I had an evo I used to ride at 8psi with little to no drama, I was jumping less back then though.

Re: F-one Bandit or Duotone Rebel/Evo ?

The (now last years) Bandit 12 is what I use now, after using many kites from C kites to Enduro V2, FS Soul, the Bandit is by far the best kite I have flown, the main things I like about it are precise handling, stays where you put it but turns quickly when you want, really nice bar feedback, boost...

Re: F-one Bandit or Duotone Rebel/Evo ?

Love Evo's, I rode them for my first 3 years and are still my favourite all round kite. Conversely, the only time I tried an F-one bandit it backstalled constantly ...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: I still see them

Seen some foil board and foil kite self rescues which look scetchy even when demonstrated in flat water. Attach to your gear while you pack the kite down to reduce stress, free hands. Maybe helpful. I think I did about 6 packdown and swims last month I was really stretching my limits. It's incredib...

Re: Any tips for a heavy and tall beginner ?

Yeah, I'm heavier than you, it's fine. Number 1: Get lessons. Then you want a board a bit bigger than all the "normals"I ride a 145/45 in most conditions with a monster door for light wind, you can drop this down when you know what you're doing but a big board makes it that much easier to learn. 10m...
