Re: heli loop not providing lift

Let’s find names so we know what kind of loop it is, because you can either forward or backward loop it. E.g.: Forward Heliloop: Your kite is BEHIND the zenith, and the kite would stall since you under jump it and the kite would be flying behind you. To get the kite back above you you pull hard on ...

Safety shall come before pretty for bars.
If someone cannot learn 'bright color on the left' not sure making it red it will help him.

However if im not mistaken bars can be used both ways right ? it just helps to stick with one to avoid confusion. Or am i wrong ?

No change to the bar? What about changing the color for instance? Some red on left side will be morr than welcome
Please no red on the left. Airush bars are the most beautiful in the market imo and keeping the bright color to the left is very clear.

It's indeed a much better discussion than the covidshit.. so why anyone hints in closing this topic isn't clear to me.
Parking near a kitespot is a somewhat interesting topic. The manner this discussion is taking place is not very healthy however, as the tittle indicates as well.

Re: Bindings - How well do they keep your feet in place?

Hey thanks all for your replies! It sounds to me like you need to work on your technique (we all do). You can pop and jump with loose bindings because done correctly the board is pushing your feet up. It should not be your feet pulling up on the board if timed correctly. You can use the wind age on ...

Bindings - How well do they keep your feet in place?

Hey, many thanks for your input guys, i really appreciate it! I spoke a bit further with Tom, who gave me some more guidance on the matter, and currently im investigating deeper on shaping PU-foam. We had some extreme wild-fire disaster here in Greece so it has taken my attention for the time being....

Re: My first kitesurf board! Eps Foam okay ?

Hey downunder, thanks for your tip. Will definitely look into starting from a simpler shape like an Alaia, but for my reference, is foam usable or not? what kind of coating would require to make it withstand the forces?

Shall i forget foam and move into wood? why is that ?
