Re: Quiver sizes 7/9/12/15 Vs 7/10/13

Not sure if there is a right or wrong answer to this. You will lose some days with 15 vs 13, but how many and how many of those are good days is a different thing. For me personally, SolarSet's setup makes a lot of sense. Even with only LEIs I wouldn't say 15 - 11 - 8 is much of an issue. 15 - 11 is...

Re: Kite for Beginner Switchblade or Reach

Yes. Nothing like riding a 6m in 15 knots. Not that much to add to Herman. I use a 50cm bar from 7m to 17m. For me I miss having a wider bar a lot more on the 17m than having a smaller on the smaller sizes. Obviously relevant for the kites I own and might not be universally true. Personal preference...

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

Quite common for us in QAnon to wear a helmet. So don't blame us.

Re: Kit to progress to bigger jumps

There is definitely a consideration that moving to a pure "big air" 5-strut kite might make you a bit "lazy". No doubt. And at 75kg I would probably tend to share that view - especially if you are jumping 2-3m high - because then you are far from getting close to the potential of the kit you already...

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

Wouldn't wearing a helmet signal to the same employees that kiting is in fact more dangerous than it is? Why would us reckless kiters wear one if it wasn't very necessary?

Kiting can't be that dangerous. Kiters aren't even wearing helmets.

Easy.

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

OK. So what is the end point here? We should not give people excuses to behave in a way we don't think is "correct"? Ummmmm, I guess that sounds good to me. More lives saved, less stupidity getting kiteboarding banned on our beaches.... Kim, wanna play devil's advocate on this one? I guess it shoul...

Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

I'm not sure why the "pro-helmet" users on here have to be so rude and arrogant? Almost so one would think there are some chemicals applied in those helmets making them behave this way? Anyone that is not using a helmet today should think hard and long about that before using one. Do I want to beco...
