Re: Relaunch Trim

nice video. but +1 on reverse launch not applicable to really light wind. opposite front line or you swim. front/rear line ballet also needed to keep kite from falling on its back . downlooping also key to keep kite flying .

Re: surprising development with booties, need windproof type

i have a pair of 7mm oneil heats. in combo with a bootied drysuit my feet are perfectly warm. my hands get cold way faster. the water here is like 42F, air around the same. my hands get cold due to wind chill just like your feet.

Re: iKitesurf scammer

i agree. i wish ikitesurf had a higher barrier to scammers. they ruin it and are on there a lot. i have found forcing a phone call early is best way to filter them.

Re: repurposed slingshot guardian bar for foil

this is a good point. i already had to do re-engage with gloves , it was hard, but luckily i could stand. if you were floating and kite was pulling it would be harder, no doubt. the SS bungee on the quick release could be made thicker, its a little too feather trigger.
