Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2019

its not just the fact that you dont have a potential large floating object to help you get back if something goes wrong, itsthe simple fact that the likelyhood of not being able to relaunch is way higher, and if you live anywhere where there are always waves, you can forget it. yup with foilboards, ...

Re: Day 1 Finished - King of the Air 2019 - all info here

kota doesnt exactly have transparent scoring when it comes to the maths of 30/70 - too open to personal opinion. The WSL are doing a better job at scoring these days.. an organisation to learn from.. competitors know exactly how the scoring works down to the details, can talk to judges, and properly...

Re: Day 1 Finished - King of the Air 2019 - all info here

when you see this huge "first ever" and compare it to the paraglider dangle kiters with a handle on things, it is clearly as embarrassment to kiteboarding that this did not get the recognition it deserves by the judges. Even aarons dangle kgb won a few year ago.. but this side ways! It has become a ...

Re: Day 1 Finished - King of the Air 2019 - all info here

does anyone else see that with 70% height and 30% trick scoring that inovation with difficult risky tricks is a waste of time... if you do the maths based on scores out of 10 for height.. 10 being the biggest you would think anyone could go in that much wind for the heat ( relative scoring a la wsl....

Re: Kite for waveriding

i rode the cabo - easiest kite i ever rode - to extent i got bored, but in the right waves - real good - fast and stupid amounts of depower. Had worlds worst quick release at the time that clogged up with sand or salt, think they use a north one now? I may be the last person on earth left riding mai...

Re: Day 1 Finished - King of the Air 2019 - all info here

Very entertaining, great to finally see a new generation of sick riders. Do the judges do this maths? It would seem pretty much impossible to make of use of progressive tricks in order to win, so why even bother is my question - just do the same thing each year? 16m Jump /Best Trick Height 6.23 + Tr...

Re: Fastest animals in the ocean are...

Cool idea

I can see a reduction in my collection of surfing bruises.

Do you need a rash vest to retain nipples?

Re: Kite for waveriding

I went recently and rode canggu in cross off (only just cross off) the wind was up and down - more lully actually - pretty tough at times as you need a bigger kite to get up through the lulls and get upwind to the waves but when you get on them you just cant slow down easily as the angles the wave p...
