Re: Fatality in Germany

You will continue to do what you do. I have simply written all this shit out so anyone reading it can judge for themselves. Thank you starsky. You and a few others spend a lot of time on here and it's valuable to people. I teach. When I'm teaching, I go over safety fundamentals (QR, downwind space,...

Re: first time I tried backroll I did landed a backloop...

Backroll and backloop are the same thing just called differently in some areas. You did a backroll with a kiteloop as I know it. This has always confused me. I am guessing that the terms backroll and backloop originated from wake boarding where they mean the same thing. However, in kitesurfing, a k...

I can't believe this forum has become so dull you've resorted to comparing tethers. The sad part is you've almost had as many replies as the bloke getting eaten by a croc! :lol:

Re: Best Boots for Kitesurf

Having said that, even if the system did work flawlessly I still wouldn't want it as bodydragging for boards is the shittest thing ever!

Re: Best Boots for Kitesurf

Sounds like you are not familiar with ski bindings and DIN settings. You can tighten the settings, so you can make it so that they wont come off at all or you can ease them so that a certain level of force will pop them off before you suffer injury. I used to keep my skis at a DIN setting of 14 - u...

Re: Best Boots for Kitesurf

So I was checking out the new Hyperlite System Pro setup with the different boots. I had an idea - with this setup you could create a DYN system like downhill snow skis have. This way, you could have a release in the event you had too much upward pressure, ideally an adjustable setting to make it h...

A solution to what exactly? He's just described a standard assisted launch.
For a compromise regarding hooked vs unhooked launch ;-)
No not really. In this instance hooked or unhooked is irrelevant until the point of launching the kite.

Re: Just another death loop

I think the best way is to do an unhooked pre-flight check and then hook in and launch. So, just connect your leash, tell your helper to put the kite in the launch position, one hand on the chickenloop and the other on the bar, when the lines get tension check for tangles and crossed lines, then ho...

Re: Need for Speed

i mean, i'm aware airbunny is a female but does that mean she can't also be a douchebag? can you be one if you periodically have to use one? HAY-OH! Haha, yes she most certainly can. I meant I was impressed you managed to single out only one absurd comment from her post/s, not that you singled out ...
