Best offered you the 3 for 2 deal on the '04 kites even after the deal was done on the same day that you put up this post. It wasn't for the '05 kites because it never was. If you had really called Best then we would have sold you the kites. Don't come on the forum and outright bullshit everyone int...

I have talked to a few people with their opinions on the s/s and best. Not many have had the chance with the w/w. Yarga has better upwind tack and higher jumps but has a little higher aspect ratio. S/S turns a little faster though. All are made with high quality. Just depends on who you talk to.

cas, Start out with a 9m kite, in a medium to low aspect ratio and start to ride in the 15 - 20 range. I suggest an inflateable kite but that is really just a preference. Inflateables have alot of plus on their side especially for begginers. If you have a problem with your line or something, it will...

Some will say Best copied the Contra and Cabrihna copied Wind Wing. That's a bunch of bull shit! It's a newer concept or design. I guess that would be like saying every other kite manufacturer copied Wipika and the original LEI kite inventor Bruno. Come on. Lets get real.

I'd love to here from anyone that knows of anyone that has been bit by a shark while body dragging. Been teaching for 4 years all over the US and have yet to here of it. As for the buoy thing. I don't let anyone drag around buoys. But I have heard of "experienced" kiteboarders crashing and getting t...

The word that best discribes why you have trouble going fast is the word uncomfortable. At first, everyone is. Don't need to be nukin at speed but just as you are gonna do a wake style trick, bare off your edge a little and then throw down hard. The more comfortable you become at riding with speed t...

Hey Arcsrule (Jacksonville guy). Maybe I wasn't talking to you but to the rest of the posting people. We're talking about body dragging and sharks in the water and you jump in about land sharks. Many do exist but sometimes just a myth. Don't assume everyone is the same or what you might have experie...

local, Most wind ranges are based on a 170 lb rider. Though you are right about board length and line length. Most bottom end numbers are usually the minimum wind needed to fly the kite and still have adaquit control. (no luffing or overflying) BFK states 6 - 15 knts. which is accurate but for a pre...
