Re: Difference between Nobile 50/fifty and NHP boards?

I moved from underground 138x42 2010 to 134x42 NHP 2012.. I love it. I loved the other board also, but the NHP is faster, and jumps higher. Landings were softer with my underground, but everything else is better for me. Since i am not riding boots, the underground was alittle to long for me. Boots t...

Re: POV Video Kiter Lofted Up & Thru Tree Canopy

My questions is this.... HOW LONG WAS "THE GUY" on land? I see the video was edited.... But why does it need editing.. how fucking long were you standing there with the kite at 12 with a bunch of trees down wind? It what looks to be pretty strong wind. Nothing crazy by any means. 5 years ago now.. o...

Re: POV Video - Deathlooping Kite Drags Rider Into A Rock Je

Pulling the QR1 was not the answer here. Like i said in first post.

Anyone who thinks pulling the QR in this case would help is DEAD wrong. Dead wrong.

Re: POV Video - Deathlooping Kite Drags Rider Into A Rock Je

In this case like i said before... I dont think releasing the QR 1 was the answer. Watch in the video. from 29 sec to 59 sec is his window to avoid getting yarded, but risks losing kite to rocks. Here he clearly has time to unhook, and hold CL, pull QR 2 off harness. Now you are totally off kite. Ho...

Re: POV Video - Deathlooping Kite Drags Rider Into A Rock Je

Toby To me it looks like he did release..... but the center line bound the bar in place. Almost like it was being Micro looped down, or held down. He releases but the bar does not reach the top of its throw.. So as the lease goes out its just as powerful as being hooked in. The leash might have give...

Re: POV Video - Deathlooping Kite Drags Rider Into A Rock Je

Wow.....Put yourself in his booties. He had plenty of time to act accordingly. From what I see he had to pull the Center lines, with his right hand up, and around the right side of the bar. Something similar has happened to me and sent me flying. Not into rocks, but at least 4-5 kite lengths thru op...

Re: Best way to smooth the landing during a big air

Heres a good one.. Clearly shows the pilot setting himself up for the landings. He's moving the kite so he swings under it a little. The last one is a gust during the apex, it gave him a shot at 3 or 4 loops. Thats what Im trying to do. I just want to float around. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC-...
