Re: Diversity in the Kiteboarding community

Poverty is the barrier of getting into this sport and many other sports. Really any activity requiring even basic equipment, plus transportation and plenty of free time, will unfortunately exclude a massive chunk of this world as things stand today. So the answer to the question is the same as the a...

Re: Towing a rider

He means to kite with enough power to get a regular surfer up and riding behind him using a tow rope. I haven’t done it. But If I were to try I’d say you'd want to be good-n-powered and have the level/ability to hold it down by yourself obviously since the passenger drops off and into the wave or wh...

Re: Duotone Rebel 2020 vs RRD Addiction 2020

Depends if you want reactive/lively steering or not. One or other is not better just a personal preference people have. The addiction will have more reactive fast and playful steering, and the rebel will be more of set it and forget it thus less likely to get away from you if you’re not paying atten...

Re: Flotation

not only should you be prepared to swim/drift back to shore, you should be prepared to swim/drift back INJURED and WITHOUT your gear.
Wear a flotation vest of some kind.

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

In the Real vid, they say aluula 14.5 flite is 5.8 lbs (2.6kg) however weight is listed at 4.9 lbs (2.2kg) most other places including their description page.
Thats a big discrepancy! Which is it?
Stafford maybe you can clear it up?

Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

Its telling that Real + Mackite got on board with this. If it wasn’t the bees knees they wouldn’t have added it to their catalogs considering they have business deals with a bunch of other major brands who maybe are not too happy about it. Personally if I was OR I wouldn’t let Real sell Aluula with...

Re: Good seat harness for narrow waist?

Try some different ones on (if possible) and try to touch your toes / mimick trying to put your board on - Big differences in mobility will show between different designs. I mostly use ride engine waist harness but when I use a seat harness its the dakine vega, it has much better flexibility than th...
