Re: Inexpensive long-term Kite destination Feb-April

Hey guys, thanks for all your replies!
I will focus my search on Cap Verde, Columbia and Dakhla.
Thailand sounds very nice, since I love the food. But I would like some stronger wind consistency.

Thanks again!

Inexpensive long-term Kite destination Feb-April

Hi guys, I've had an accident (not kite related) a while ago but am fully recovered again. I was able to work and put a little money on the side. I have basically time off from early February until late April since I am switching jobs in May. So for the time off I am looking to travel some place whe...

Bindings/Boots for women

Hey girls, I am male and I have a question regarding bindings. I have fairly small and slim feet (eu=41, us=8.5) and usually can shop in the womens department for shoes :P. I also have trouble with bindings when it comes to kitesurfing. I never quite feel that I have proper footing on my board. Any ...

Re: Teamrider conditions

Thanks. I wasn't looking for exact numbers. Just a general idea. Came home from a trip a couple of days ago where I met a teamrider whose conditions weren't as good as I thought. But makes sense that there are different rates. As a sidenote. I always talk with my peers at work about how much I make....

Teamrider conditions

Hey guys,
I was just wondering if anyone knows how big a discount teamriders get in buying new gear? Was doing some research on the web but couldn't find much information.
Maybe one of you has some insight. 8)
Best regards!

Re: Boots Vs Foot Straps

I kind of want to hijack this thread with a question related to boots. If i don't get responses I'll start a new one.

I am thinking of switching to boots. What are different things to keep in mind?
It seems to me there is not much choice. So do I just get a pair or are there big differences?

or can't edge and pop after unhooking because of pressure?
Basically this. But all your answers helped. I wait for wind and keep on trying! Thanks again :)

and don't ride around unhooked all day nobody is that buff to hold a kite down forever. You just want to be unhooked for long enough to throw your trick.
Haha, no I didn't plan to ride unhooked all day :D

Unhooked - Bar Pressure

Hey guys, I try learning unhooked, starting with Raleys and Sbend. I ride Cab Switchblades and feel like the bar pressure is quite strong. I am not buff, but not weak either. Still, I feel its quite difficult for me to hold on to the bar and edge as well. Is a different kite like the FX better suite...

Cabrinha riders are well covered, the Cab shop in Big Bay has tons of stock and spares.
Awesome. Thanks for the info. I've decided to get my gear while I'm down there. Unless I find a great deal before :)
