Re: Wetsuit neopren boots not holding my foot?

Some booties have a Velcro closure over the top of your foot, to keep them from slipping around. A thicker sole bootie may help. In surfing, you want thin soles to feel the board, not as important in kiting. Finally, back when we used diving booties that were not very form fitting, we used these “b...

Re: Strapless foil aid?

Agreed Way harder with sig volume, but doable and once you figure it out, not that hard. I started out on a surfboard, about 28L. Had to get the board up onto its side.

Re: Car keys and salt water

Rental cars can be a pain, but some designers thought of this issue already. My key detaches from the electronic piece, and I take it with me in the water. It's just a simple key, only opens the door but that's enough. The electronic key stays in the locked car.

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

The QR activation looks suspect, however this accident is primarily (or my take, entirely) user error. Anyone using a kite to reach great heights (big jumps, loops, or soaring in the mountains when snowkiting) must think very hard and make absolutely sure that there will be no accidental disconnecti...

Re: Lowest bar pressure kite?

Some options that I know about: Gong Strutless, Liquid Force Elite, HQ Matrixx.

Re: Strutless Gong Kite Reviews?

Sorry but it’s more about the gusts (one can argue abt the average wind but I still say you have steady gusts so that’s what matters) and with that diagram you cannot really say that the low end is 5mph, ie. one cannot pass the fact that there was constant wind over 10 mph, especially when foiling ...
