SLC, Utah Snow Kite lessons?

Wife has never wanted to learn how to kiteboard (water) but we're heading to SLC to go ski-/snowboard-ing later this week and she is interested in snowkiting! Searching around, I only see Utah Snowkite Center that does lessons and maybe Uinta Kiting (but there's limited info there). Are there any ot...

For 2020 the spreader bar is sold separately.

Do you like this color?
Thank God - I have 3 hook spreader bars just sitting around b/c I get a new one with every harness but I've switched to the Option rope slider and don't need them.

I like the color.

Re: Missing kitesurfer found after spending night on marshland

... And as dave just asked, which GPS sat device do you use, I haven't been able to find one with proper waterproof ratings that are small enough to attach to a harness. You may be wealthy, but for some people, a few hundred quid + sat subscription fees is allot of money... A small marine vhf radio...

Re: new foils Liquid Force

Thruster wings will not fit the new fuselage. This is a shame. The new fuselage (like the OG fuselage) fits diagonally in a large suitcase. The HD fuselage that comes with the thruster, is just a smidge too long. There are prototype shims for the front wing, but nothing for the back wing. Well, let...

Re: kite loop radius for gybe to toe

Leave kite where is it - do nothing with kite - initiate turn /just you not kite/ and ride about 1/2 in to turn. Only then downloop your kite - which will very nicely catch you in end of turn without yank. Point is you leave kite on edge where is really stable and as you go from kite you actually t...

Re: kite loop radius for gybe to toe

As a beginner foiler, I'm always having to remind myself "turn the kite first" and "follow the kite". Heel-to-toe, down loops seem easier to complete without worrying about dropping the kite than "up and overs" but I have issues once I'm through the turn. I'm always getting pulled downwind for a way...

Re: SPI Foiling

Yeah, I'll definitely pick and choose my days on the Gulf. Just trying to weigh the pros and cons for the potential light wind days. Do I just bring a big kite and use a TT/SB or skip the big kite and pack the foil and board? More gear to schlep for foiling than just adding a big kite but it is more...
