Re: Beginner with ultra long lines - intervene or not?

In situations like that I always ask myself how I would feel if something went wrong. Then I evaluate the probability of that happening. In this case the probability of something bad happening sounds low. I have seen similar things with friends trying to teach themselves to kite etc. - completely cl...

Re: Edje 15m or zephyr17 for light wind

I'm around 100kg and own a Zephyr. At 15-17 knots I would as all the others definitely go for Zephyr over Edge. Trying to jump in 15 knots with a kite that isn't big enough is rather zzzzzz. Personally I don't think it is the easiest kite to jump with, but that is probably more down to my skill leve...

Re: Do Kite Bags Suck?

My last two Ozone bags are great. Nice front pocket. Very good plastic zipper.

Absolutely hate the older ones. 2012-ish. Maybe just been unlucky, but the zippers would all fail.

Re: Kiteboarding Travel Guide: Langebaan South Africa

Only thing I would disagree with is Langebaan being a "beach destination" (or whatever she called it). I was there for almost 3 weeks and I could count on one hand the number of people sunbathing on quiet days on that beach. If you are bringing loved ones for them to have a "beach holiday" while you...

Re: Ozone Catalyst vs Endura and Edge

Sometimes I can´t help thinking that Ozone made a mistake branding the Catalyst as beginner friendly as people end up thinking is a "simpe" kite. I would argue whenever I have been kiting 90-95% of the people on the water are not skilled enough to have outgrown the Catalyst. I have seen some very go...

Re: What's the difference between a beginner, intermediate, and advanced twin tip?

Havre. Imho that's the point. In light wind the expert and beginner need the same characteristics it's just that the expert would be really be aware of the weight of a cheap board. A rich beginner and an expert of the same size could well be on the same board. Arguably no board is too small, it jus...

Re: What's the difference between a beginner, intermediate, and advanced twin tip?

Good post, but it doesn't really prove anything unless, as you say, others have done the same. To me it sounds odd if they don't change the design somewhat across the range. A beginner needs a board that is easy to ride upwind and that "floats" well. More advanced riders will look for other characte...

Re: Kite "Camp" in July in Dominican

I learned in Cabarete so it is definitely possible, but as others are saying it isn't the ideal place to learn. I wouldn't say don't go, but there might be better alternatives until you have reached a slightly higher level.

Re: Help choosing July destination

Cabarete is pretty enormous - is it really crowded all over the place?
