Re: Need help evaluating my Pin Holes

No reason to be concerned with that whatsoever.
Even if it propagated (it wont) it is surrounded by a seam that would stop the tear. You could put a sticky patch on it if it bothers you but will make no difference either way.

Re: Tether Launch - strong wind

I definitely put sand on wingtip in strong wind, enough of it to hold kite there. Takes a fair pull on the bar sometimes to take off, and the sand dumps out then. Also, I have not personally had an issue with kite bouncing up and down a bit, always comes down on same side, this may vary with model o...

Re: How much gear would you bring for 2 months

Typically I will pack two standard duffel bags, a splitboard in each, a kite or two in each, a bar in each, a pump in each. With the remaining weight left for a thin wetsuit, vest, and miscellaneous non kiting items such as spears/fins/mask etc assuming the limit is the normal 50 lbs. Standard bagga...

Re: 2019 Naish Thrust

I recommend foot hooks, then nothing after you get the hang. For kiting only, medium wing would be good, can’t go wrong with either M or L though, personal choice maybe base it on your weight.

Re: Covid vaccine

Goavegas- The virus may be small but is often attached to larger particles such as micro water droplets or dust. Also, particles of this small a size that are unattached to something larger fly around in a more erratic way and thus are actually more likely to get caught in filter than particles that...

Re: 2019 Naish Thrust

Naish thrust surf large - extremely easy to ride, lots lift, intuitive, stable, very pumpable, somewhat more reactive and carvable (than lf impulse I also own). Decent top speed considering the size and low speed lift. The downturned wingtips on thrust surf wings help prevent breeching on a carve vs...

Re: How long is your drive to the Kiting Spot, how long is your Session, how exhausted are you after the session

Distance: variable, I like diversity of spots.
Duration: usually fairly long, 3 to 5hrs+ (including a break or two if its an all-day kind of session).
Result: generally pretty beat, followed by euforia, then feeling like a well-used rubber band the next morning, but regaining normalcy by noon or so.

Quite some difference between “can” and “will”

No difference at all between “nature” and “man”

Evolution of humans in 100 years??? Pffffft!
500 years?? Still pfffft.
Honestly this whole thread is just embarrassing.
Give it up guys, there are more appropriate places to discuss(?) this stuff besides kiteforum.

Re: Happy new year 2021 !

Happy New Year and Stoke be to All!
I traveled to cocoa beach fl and kited the waves yesterday and today in 12knots, Ill take it over freezing rain/sleet back home, any day.
No better way to end the year and ring in the new than kiting the last day of the year, and the first of the next.
