Re: how to self land using the lower center line method

I do this all the time, including this morning. If it's under 20knots I usually just pull the front line to get it to fall leading edge down. When it's windy I use this technique: Make sure your flag-out line is on the bottom when at the edge of the wind window (next to the ground), then release you...

Re: Kiting prognosis after heart attack

If you're on an actual blood thinner (warfarin, xarelto, apixaban, etc) you are likely going to be recommended NOT to kite. Post-CABG is however not an indication for long-term therapeutic anticoagulation so you are probably going to just be on aspirin and plavix or brilinta. Your CT surgeon will li...

Re: How many of you do yoga exercises for kiting?

I do a 1 minute stretch routine every single morning for the past decade. Interestingly, that "malasana" pose is how I end every time for what that's worth. I was having neck pain from doing so much wakestyle and regular wakeboarding getting whiplashes all during my teens and twenties. Now I have no...

Re: What a piece of shit town

2 feet is not much relative to an RV but that's about 20% of a normal car length so it's definitely ticket-worthy in a coveted parking zone. I would just keep the RV parked there, get a good session in, then leave and pay the ticket later. ------------------------------------------------------------...

Re: Airush Ultra vs Cloud for Foiling?

I have a 9m Ultra V1, excellent for waves and foiling. I go out when the lulls are 8knots or greater, so it's very good lightwind. TT jumping is not very good. Can't comment on Cloud but it is nice to have a strut for relaunch and self launch/landing. I'm trying to hold out for an Ultra with Alulua ...

Re: Airush Ultra 12m as Main Kite for Twin-Tipping

I have a 9m Ultra that I ride as my main kite all the time, 8 sessions since Sunday actually, it's literally the only kite I own (other than a bunch of old kites). It's an amazing kite for everything except jumping, although I was actually just jumping off 6-8foot waves last night and sending it hug...

Re: Apple Watch Series 2...

I kite more than most people (3-4x week all year long) and I always wear my apple watch series 3. I also surf several days weekly, shallow freedive, and fish (and do whatever else I want) with it on. You do not have to worry about water coming in, it is fully waterproof and very impact resistant. If...

Re: 2019 Watches

So now I've done well over 100 sessions with my Apple Watch (probably a lot more). Standard velcro strap or Carterjett aftermarket band is best. Sport band is horrible and you will lose your watch (maybe first session). I have never used a case and I kite with it regularly, I also surf with it and f...

Re: Bigger board or bigger kite in light wind?

6 knots is very very light wind and will be rough with a LEI. One of the major problems with ultra light wind is that it can be very unstable and drop to 3 knots temporarily etc. I am quite experienced and have an Airush Ultra single strut kite and a number of hydrofoils and my low end for a consist...

Re: Best surf kite wave in Florida

Having kited all over Florida and now living in Florida and kiting most days (including this morning) I would say that Cocoa/Melbourne area is probably the best overall for wave kiting. -Central Florida in general gets the best combination of waves and wind. Weather is always pleasant, good swell wi...
