Re: How to Kitesurf: Front Roll

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnnKSLsUqKM One of the basic spin tricks that is fairly simple to learn. I tend to find the biggest issue people have with this trick is that they try to go for the roll before getting the pop. To perform this trick, you want to go into it with a little speed in the b...

Re: Twisted fuselage?

I beat the crap out of my LF foil, lend it to friends, hit sand bars. A little twist isn't going to do much. Maybe some vibration when you're riding along smoothly in flat water and not changing your height out of the water for long periods of time. Beat it like it owes you money and have fun on it....

Re: How to slow down on hydrofoil?

you can also come off foil and touch down on the water briefly to let the kite fly to the edge of the wind window and then just foil back up again. Another option is edge harder, throw the kite back and boost.

Re: LF Element vs Carbon Element vs Legacy

You really need to try them both. Different rides for sure. I had the Element and now I ride the Legacy. In flat water the Element performs amazing but with the chop and crappy conditions, the Legacy throws almost zero spray in my face and is super smooth. Both are great boards.

Re: Who Wants A Broken Neck/Mangled Body This Time?

Also a reminder with these storms. Check your gear before showing up to beach with a kite that you never use except for storms Had two people show up this morning with parts not fully working on their kites or with a kite that hasn't seen the light of day since the last big storm we had. Keep in min...

Re: Landing after big jumps? And controlling rotation?

To stop the pendulum effect, take your back ahnd off the bar and go for a quick board grab. You can hold it longer if comfortable. Taking the back hand off while the front hand is near the middle of the bar will get the kite to fly slowly across the top of the wind window giving you a floaty jump. F...

Re: Liquid force Envy or Wow

I'd go with the Envy. The WOW is great but the Envy has a quicker pop to it which is nicer for unhooked. Both drift well and will not fall out of the sky when you go down the line. If you're going to go with a quiver then do a solo 17.5 and then your smaller two kites as Envy's. I love the solo 17.5...

Re: Kiting and shoulder pain

Get Some Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections done and you'll be all good in a month. I've had both shoulders, knees, ankle, hand, hip and spine done and it makes a huge difference. Handle pass tricks and hard crashes over the years tore my shoulders apart and the hard hits on my knees ate up the c...

Re: Walkie Talkies for Teaching

Those will work fine, I recommend attaching them to the helmet tho. When on the vest they can tend to be submersed a lot while getting on the board which then the student will not hear you.

Re: Any info on Kiteboarding in Equador ?

stay with ocean freaks. They also have the old kitehouse down in front of the wave. It's been remodeled and is a sick spot to surf in the mornings before the wind comes up
