I did that the last time I needed to use a leash and it worked fine, didn't have any problem with the switch feet.

Re: Leash for Kite"surfing"

How ldo you keep from tripping over it everytime you switch feet?? this was really the biggest problem I encountered, along with trying to water start and having the leash wrapped around you it's kind of a pain but it's not something that would keep me from using a leash when the conditions call fo...

Re: Upwind capability

Hi y'all How would you compare to other kites the BRM Cloud upwind capability (for the same board of course)? Let's say what Cloud size you are talking about. Thanks I have the 17M and 13M and they both go upwind great. I use a surfboard with them and I used the same surfboard with my previous kite...

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Instead of making gear obsolete my hope is to provide something like a software update so riders can continue to get the latest and greatest in the gear they already have. Now that would definitely be revolutionary in this industry. BTW I'm loving the 13M besides all the great things about it like ...

Re: Normal surfboard for kitesurfing

I currently use the Hynson Black Night fish (which I also surf with) for low wind which is made out of Thermal Epoxy Compression and I have not have had any problem with it, I even jump it. I have also used polyurethane surf boards but I don't jump with those.

Re: Surf weight

I have a 5 kg 6' Caution Trespass for the surf, great on the surf and smooth on the chops. If it is 14 mph wind and up that is what I use, if it less then 14 mph then I use my 6' Firewire Potatonator surfboard (3.5 kg), which I also use for surfing when there is no wind. I have tried it in winds mor...

Re: Strutless kite trend

I would have less worry taking a cloud in marginal conditions, than any kite that is less stable or heavier. Last weekend I rode my cloud 17 with friends who had a turbine and a zephyr. The cloud was more stable at the lowest wind (7-8 knots) than either of the others. As to waves, the cloud could ...

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

Anyone tried their kite going down the line? I am really curious to try it in more wind and waves. Today we had huge surf, but not enough wind for the 8.. Well I finally got to try the 13 Cloud on a solid 15 mph winds gusting up to 18, the waves were only 2-3 ft. and I was a 6' ft surfboard but I h...

Re: Strutless kite in development on Maui

I have self launch the 17M several times with no problem so I would think it would be easier with an anchor.
