Re: Reading wind Apps

Gusts are not a feature of atmospheric models. They are predicted by statistics based on how gusty it normally is with the predicted wind direction and the wheather system that is passing. As such, gust indications can be very misleading and it's often better to plan based on the average wind. PS Of...

Cabrinha meaning + other kitesurf brand names?

Just heard from my roommate that Cabrinha is Portugese for little goat :lol:

Makes me wonder if there's hidden meanings behind other kite brand names. Does anyone know of any?

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Saw the 14.5 on the water yesterday. It turns very, very fast. The wind was light (10-15 knots) and on the beach the guy had no problem at all keeping the kite in the air. On the water, it was looking like he was having a great time, especially looked awesome on the way down after a jump, since stee...

Re: What's your favorite wind range?

20-25 knots. Usually the wind is not too gusty then, with not too much chop or waves. Gives confidence to try some new things and my 9m loops nice and fast.

Re: flysurfer soul 15m ?

I love my Soul 15m. Already had quite a few awesome twintip sessions on it. First one on the water and when other people are mowing the lawn I can start doing some nice jumps and I can practice some surface tricks. It's my first foil kite so I didn't even consider a Sonic, and I'm quite happy becaus...

Re: Duotone Neo size

I would try to avoid gaps in your quiver, it makes it difficult to choose in gusty or changing wind conditions. Also, in most locations, lighter winds are just more common. So if these are the only options, I'd choose the 8. However, I would seriously consider selling the 7 and 11 and just completel...

Re: Any Vantage kite reviews?

i need to be convinced that vantage is a game changer, so convince me.................... It's a very nice kite, but I wouldn't say it's a game changer in any way. If ever this method of designing leads to revolutionary designs, then that will probably also take some development cycles to fine-tune...

Re: My first kite

I want to start in flat water. Maybe on the Zandmotor if it's not too crowdy or on the IJsselmeer. I see you know the Zandmotor in your profile. I had a 3 hour lesson yesterday for kite control and body dragging and next week I have 2 lessons on the board. Or at least with the board haha. The advic...

Re: Reedin Supermodel?

Saw one flying this weekend at the beach. The owner was really happy with it. He said it was more comparable to the Naish Dash than the Pivot. He liked how the kites boosted, looped and he also enjoyed them in the waves, sounded pretty allround.

Re: My first kite

What kind of winds are you going to ride in? Waves/flat water? How is the waterstart going so far, are you picking it up fast or are you having a hard time to get up on the board?
