Re: An existential doubt regarding pop!

I still don t get it.

Might be the language issue, sorry for being so slow...

What do you do mechanically?
Do you lift your front foot? Do you lift both of your feet?

Thanks again

An existential doubt regarding pop!

Hello there! I ve been kiting for almost a decade now, and meanwhile I can jump quite well using kickers or throwing the kite, i just realized how much I suck at doing a clean pop on flat water without moving the kite. The pop sequence as I know it is the following: 1- Build speed - slightly going d...

Perforated tympan: the hazzards of breaking waves

Here I thought that I should share my story and seek for advice. Last sunday I went kiting: 15knots and some choppy waves, what appeared to be ideal conditions for kiting. Just leaving the beach, I faced a wave (not too big: 1m20) and miscalculated its speed thinking I would be able to jump over it ...

North adjustable footstraps for surf sucks. Recommendation?

I KNOW it is a clear sign that I should go strapless, but we were not all born Mitu Monteiro and besides straps are convenient for jumping and when it is totally choppy. I have a North Nugget (model 2012), and the adjustable straps delivered with the board are indeed adjustable, except that they do ...

Re: Favorite movie

ANTODROY, you can find it on f-one website, and it comes for free! I watch a couple a kite movies every day, and I haven t come to find something even remotely close in terms of quality to that one. I showed it to many non-kiters, of all ages and gender, they are so stuck to the images that they can...

Re: Travel bag to fit the north nugget

It is the north quiverbag, it does not fit in the combi to provide enough protection.

I think the size is 165cm, model 2012.

Re: Tips for Jumping

One thing I do not understand.

If forward speed is so much important for jumping, how do people jump from the beach to the sea for show-off beach start?

Is it a totally different technique with a kiteloop?

Thanks for the most experienced kiters to share the trick here.
