Re: Research on "High Hook" seat harnesses

I'm curious as why you think a high hook is better in any way. In my experience a low hook near your center of gravity is much better for everything: jumping, wave riding, freeriding, looping, rotations. I know that it takes a few sessions to get used to changes in hook height, but once your muscle...

Re: Naish Boxer 10m 19/20

One more thing: you write that a 9m2 3 strut wave kite is faster turning than a 10m2 1-strut kite? Maybe I could also stick with my 9m2 3-strut freeride kite for both waves and foiling, and just go for a single 1-strut kite for light wind foiling.. That's what I did first and it'S a good strategy b...

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

Here in Canada the ice is receding slowly. I was kiting on the ice last week the water season should start in drysuits next week maybe no ban as far as I know but parks are closed. Individual sports like cycling and walking outside does not appear to be an issue. I think that kiting alone in non thr...

Re: Toby, no wingfoil forum?

toby, at my spot all the wing riders are/were kite foilers, surf board kite riders, twin tip riders, possibly another reason to have a seperate link to wing foiling? I agree it should be a separate forum I personally have zero interest in these things and I come to Kiteforum to talk about kites and...

I did the Diablo mod on my Aurora 2 22M I'll report when I test it. If it's good I'll do it on the Aurora 3 15M.

I'm not really worried about the bug itself the death rate for people my age in great physical condition is almost zero but I'm more worried about the general paranoia and people acting irrat...

Re: Mystic Stealth Bar - Size Selection

It really depends on your waist size and harness. I'm a size 32 and I bought the medium one it was too small for my prolimit medium harness the straps were too short. I sold it to my friend who is about the same waist size and it fits great with his Ride Engine medium. I ordered a large for me and i...

Re: Aluula Composites | Episode # 135

It’s about performance, not the weight. I don’t care the weight as long as I jump high and long in not that strong winds. Well you aren't going to get significant performance boost from just making it lighter. For that you need to have higher AR, lower drag. Currently only foil kites offer this. Ma...
