Re: Where to stay in Hatteras for a long weekend. Watermens

Don't stay in the Waterman's. That place is an overpriced bad joke. Even if you stay there you are not allowed to use their launch site unless you take lessons. Very frustrating. Take your Mom to Ocracoke for a day-trip. It is a magical place. You don't have to take lessons there. Just go in the sh...

Re: Kite for a giant...like 120kg! Please help!

I'm just a little guy at 100kg...

I ride a 17M SS T3 and a JL Flight Deck. Awesome lightwind set up and the relaunch on the T3 is really good, even in light winds.

Re: schools and helmets...

\ No Dutchman wears a helmet. If we see bicycle+helmet, we know there's a German or US-er. Flat country. No head injuries. that is absolute ludicrous. http://www.bhsi.org/dutchrep.htm Have you ever been here? Your bhsi is a US group that cuts and pastes delusively: "Approximately 18,000 children pr...

Re: best board for chop

I ride a JL Supermodel 140...love it in the chop :thumb: I'm heavy (100kg) so I need to be pretty powered on it, which probably won't be an issue for you in Maui. It's got quite a bit of rocker so it's not the best board at slicing upwind, but given your local conditions it's not a huge issue. Turns...

Re: Jumping Help - Swinging /Pendulum under kite

I guess a question that I have is if you are cruising at a decent speed and send the kite quickly (I.e pulling hard on the back hand) how do you make sure that it doesnt go past 12? Or does it goes past 12 and once u tkae off quickly pull a little to get it back to 12. It's ok to go past 12. I thin...

Re: Jumping Help - Swinging /Pendulum under kite

No worries... I meant to stress not looking at your kite....you really need to feel where it is. If you are always looking at your kite to make sure it is where you want it, you lose your edge, and your jump will suck. Your head will control your direction. If you feel like you have to look at your ...
