Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

-Jumping in front of the camera and trying to mesure from the take off point is far from accurate because depending if you go to the camera or away from it while in the air, even if the jump is the same height, one is gonna look higher than the other... because of perspective. No, the camera at cer...

Re: Another casualty in Italy

Sorry to hear and condolences to his family. I've started thinking if tragic accidents are indirectly because of certain jump game with measuring device. I mean ppl go out in crazy weather with crazy big kites on crazy locations. I don't know about this tragic case but I'm mentioning it for awarenes...

Re: Woo3 and Xensr compared

Nice video with effort - and finally some used camera-horizon -plane level (with a drone). But with mast plane-video would not have battery issues and they would have got more jumps.. ;)

Re: A case for full face?

Well with kayaking helmets like Rocker people huck higher water falls coming down in freewall than nobody can jump with kite. World record is 186ft / 56m. "Woo" that, you jump 56m and eject kite & leash. So definetly Sweet's Rocker is capable of that and there is no bucket effect. Carbon fibre paddl...

Re: Ozone Explore V1

Well the earliest goes back to NASA, with the Nasa para wing or better known as the nasa wing kite. Well Nasa-wing is more a parachute than kite and not good upwind. Norwegian skisails are old and looks&behaves much more like a single skin kite. This company states developing since 1993. I cannot f...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Reduce backline tension to slow down reversing. Also remember that if you "lift up" backlines from frontlines, the pivot point is different causing relative line length to change when kite moves. You can more or less hover foilkite anywhere in the wind window at any LE direction with accurate backli...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

On snowkiting we attach kite to an ice screw and carabiner with back lines pulled to center like packing the bar. I also have umbrella-type sand screw with carabiner for the same purpose but not every year I use it. On I usually back stall and walk the lines and after one span flag out the kite to o...

Re: One kite for old school AND foiling

Foil kites could serve both light wind and boosting but unfortunately it’s not possible to launch them in 3 out of 4 places I kite. Moreover as I’m still learning a lot with the foilboard, I prefer something that floats… This may be surprise to you that foil kites do float as fabric is less dense t...
