Re: As high as a kite...

This fits the topic's title more :wink: No, all but you know that your pic is a perspective trick. You are not even half the height of the kite behind and the topic is "as high as a kite". With "proofs" like that I can show you that I can jump about 400m high as tower below me is 135m. And on the l...

Re: Jyvaskyla (finland) area in December

There are active kiters in Jyväskylä area. One way to get in touch with those guys is to send private message to Youtube-user Laneohra. Ice kiting around New Year is always a question mark. It depends a lot what kind of November/December we have in southern Finland. Last year my season started Jan 1...

Re: spleene x19 v fs 15m sp 3 dlx who can compare them?

My home area is a friendly rival zone of X-19 (3 owners) and Speed3 15DLX (5-6 owners). I must say that 100% of loft accidents in my area has happened to X-19 riders. The kite does not take the gusts as Speed3 does. It's wind range is much lower, lower than 21 wind range. But of those two X-19 is a ...

Re: Kite Companies You listen!

I also like bars that have plastic covering the depower line no exposed rope that needs changing after 20 or 30 sessions. :argue: What is fine for you is not fine for me. I snowkite and usually plastic depower tubes freeze and then crack. Also chicken sticks might freeze and break. Use wax (bow str...

Re: Flysurfer speed 12m vs 15m for low end?

Sure the board means differences as well. The wind chart publisher "teabagvic" said the he uses Spleene Door which is supposed to be LW board. I published my board, my weight compared to his and my years of experience with Speed3 12DLX what kind of wind I need to start crusing. Now I also have Speed...

Re: How to make a solid GoPro backpack mount in 15 minutes

Nice instruction. I'd add string/line from gopro mount to backback. And I'd route line inside the tube. Just to prevent camera loss on hard landings :)
