Re: Best light-wind snow kite? Cabriha Velocity 18M?

Not to hijack the discussion away from foils (I'd love to try out a Peak too) but I love the old 15m Flite on snow. On water I haven't had as much success staying upwind but on snow there is more range, especially on steep terrain with upslope winds. I like a kite that turns quickly and loops. I ca...

Re: Best light-wind snow kite? Cabriha Velocity 18M?

haha...it didn't survive very well. i got both halves now (plus bar and lines intact) and will have it sewn back together...perhaps it will fly again. if not - no big deal, it's only a kite...and an inexpensive one at that, and after 13 years of kiting it would be the first "total loss" kite. And i...

Re: Why are Kite Lessons so expensive in the US???

....a quick $1000 means nothing.... Yes, quick $1000 means nothing in the grand scheme of things. And, yes, you cant buy kites from switch half-retail price even in volume. However, if you get hold on their supplier... I'm not sure why you didn't like this [alibaba] opportunity. You can order kites...

The other way to look at it, take Switch Kite retail price, and divide by 2. Like I said I only need 8...not 800 ...

Re: Why are Kite Lessons so expensive in the US???

If, on the other hand, you are trying to convince me that you run a kite school and pay 500 bucks for a bar / 2.000 for a kite, then you are either taking the pi$$, or you're a bit retarded. With all due respect. Wholesale prices are around 120$ / bar and 350-400$ / kite. Cool! Ok, Alamos I would l...
