Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

It is banned in Belgium. I got an e-mail from the federation to clarify a decision which was subject to interpretation. They don't give any specific reason but in Belgium you are only allowed to kite in front of a club (and be a member with insurance etc etc). And clubs are closed so that people do...

Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

The number might very well be correct, but how many millions would die from COVID-19 if we treated it just like the flu?

Re: ventilation

Should not be confused with the term cavitation, as this is when the water starts to "boil" locally at parts of the wing at really high speeds, or low pressure. Happening above the typical speed range kitefoilers ride, but it can happen at badly shaped/designed wing profiles also. Isn't cavitation ...

Re: Time for a better pump

Nothing here. I'm just frustrated that the pumps we are all using are actually really crap, poorly designed to last only a season or so (depends on how often you kite). I clean and lube my pumps frequently too! But even with regular cleaning, I'm lucky to get through a season without going through ...

Re: Starting to Kiteloop - advice?

All speaking about that heliloop must donw when kite are above you, but how to exactly know when it is above you head ? Always look up to kite possition with eyes or how ? If you don't feel where the kite is yet, don't start kitelooping. It comes with experience, it's one of the most important thin...

Some guys did before.
Nice and slow the kite will turn....
Kite turning speed is the same, ...

...length of line is typically limited to anywhere from 12m to 30m. Shorter, and the kite flies too fast...

And why ReedIn ? Maybe because LangerREE and GirarDIN --> ReeDin
I'm pretty sure that's the origin of the name.
It would be a huge coincidence if it wasn't that.

Re: How much do top riders make?

Im guessing here... But most likely only one rider is making above 200k. Maybe Kai Lenny makes that or double that, someone mentioned a million annual which sounds like too much even for him. that is most of - if not all from surf and windsurf comp/reppin tho. The same is true in snow sports. The t...
