Re: Glassy patches of water on calm sea?

I've experienced this only a couple of times, once when windsurfing and once when kiteboarding. Both occurred when there was a difference between the water temperature and air temperature, but I am not sure if that was the cause. In both cases the wind was around 11-12 knots, glassy smooth water.

Re: What is hot right now in kiteboarding!

It's already April, 2020 gear is behind the corner. I woudn't bother go kiting with 19 stuff anymore. Those kites should be recycled into trendy vintage bags.

Speed 5 vs. Soul

I'm looking at purchasing a 12m foil kite and I have compared the specs for these two kites. I ride mostly TT and surfboard, no foiling yet. Any advice will be appreciated.

Re: What is hot right now in kiteboarding!

In the 80s I used to race monohull sailboats, ones that planed. The only time it was fun was the start of the race, jostling for position with 8-9 other boats at the 2 minute mark. After that it was strategically boring, unless conditions were narly 20 plus knots. "Come sail away, come sail away, co...

Check out Garmin Fenix. It comes with preloaded apps and it's easy to create your own. I created my own app for kitesurfing and kayaking. You can also upload your activities to Garmin Connect and share if you want to.

Re: Learning Strapless, what to do first, Jibe, Tack etc?

Jibe first. I learned to switch to toeside before the jibe. I kept the kite high and would go downwind and switch to toeside then power back up for a carving jibe. Just what worked for me.
