Re: Opinions / reviews burton step on bindings and boots

I think it's interesting to give an input here. I do have the Burton step on boots, and to be honest my first try on them was for snow kiting, more precisely on Ragnarok last year. My back ground is water kiting, and though I haven't snowkited a lot, I could try different types of bindings. First on...

Re: Practise landing loops

Doing lots of them currently but not a master yet so take with a grain of salt. In my experience when jumping riding to the left and pulling the back hand for the loop: I will rotate my full body to the right during the loop. My board will point pretty much straight downwind by the time I will land...

Re: We filmed a kite beach for 8 hours ... crashes

unbelievable what mistakes are being made...90% of kiters have no clue about safety. A must for everyone to be safer is the safety video I made: https://strictlyhooked.com/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=2464 Toby, that's a really nice instructional video you've produced, kudos. However, I would add just a c...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar...

I'll probably get fired for this, but when it comes to freeride/freestyle on a twintip, I think the click bar not only is not necessary, but in some ways might prevent the rider to develop some skills that might help you to evolve as a kiter (I don't know nothing about waves or foiling, so can't spe...

Re: Honest advice lol

Vegas actually C kites don't jump as well as modern "open-C"s or modern bow-is kites. I'd recommend a Dice over a vegas. Ridden both I can definitely jump higher on the 2020 Dice. I would assume oksman was aware of this before posting his suggestion. The difference in jump height is less significan...

Re: Naish Torch 2019 & 2020

Can't say much about the Torch as my last model was a 2008, but seems to me that those "legacy" kites hasn't changed much over the years, besides some fine tuning. The Vegas, for example, hasn't changed in the last 6 or 7 years. Maybe C kites have evolved as much as they can with current technology

From which jumping height the heliloop is mandatory?

Pretty straight forward question. As I can see, is impossible to land a really big jump without a heliloop. But from which height it becomes really mandatory? 10m?
Thoughts?

Re: Ilha Do Guajiru, Cumbuco and Jeri... kite size?

If you're staying in Jeri and Ilha do Guajiru, a 9 only (specially a Rebel) will be fine. If you're heading further southeast, then you should bring your 12 too. I usually take only my 9m Vegas, but it doesn't hurt to take a bigger one just in case. In your case I would choose the 12, the 10 doesn't...
