Re: Show me your ..... quiver.

I ride with RRD Hyper Type 7m & 12m y2007 / boards RRD Pro Wave 5'9 y2008 & TT RRD 5X Limited 130/38 y2007 and with this quiver I cover windrange from 10kn to 30kn and had a lot of fun for 3 years, but now is time for change :D

Re: What are the most durable/reliable kites these days?

I saw very fiew comments on RRD regarding quality as I am now to choose between the Visions/Religions and the SS RPMs.
I am currently on RRDs and I am impressed with the kite durability but not the bar which is desintegrating having 3 seasons behind.
So whats your oppinion on the new RRDs??

Re: Kitesurfing inTurkey?

Hey Istanbul riders, I plan to go kitesurfing at a spot near Karaburun, west of Istanbul on the Black sea shore, which looks great and unhabited on Google maps. The road to the beach seems pretty tricky to me though!? http://www.windguru.cz/bg/index.php?sc=90214 Can anyone give me more info about th...

Re: Unhooked on a strapless board-advice needed!?

Very useful info - 10x again.
For the next session I will shorten the lines with 2m as they are too long anyway ( now 25m), I will change my hook for sure and trim in a little bit more the kite and we will see what's happening.
:D

Unhooked on a strapless board-advice needed!?

Hi all, I am trying to improve my wave riding on a surfboard so the next step will be unhooked riding. I have some questions before I give it a try - I don't want to learn the hard way and have my kite or myself torn apart. 1. Do you use one size smaller kite when riding mostly unhooked? 2. Where do...

Re: Russians have passed Bering strait on kites

Ballsy to say the least, but I wonder why they used twin tips instead of directionals. Yeah, I ask myself the same question, you will have more wind range and therefore safety out there in the cold water with a surfboard for example. You have also a better upwind ability. But maybe they wanted to s...
