Re: Board for choppy conditions

I tried Nobile T5 2014 last summer and it was very smooth and stable on choppy water, it is surprising because there isn't much rocker and it goes very well upwind.

And the new kites are so expensive, they can give you $400 discount, throw your old kite in the garbage and still make big profit :)

Re: Can't get upwind on a.......Ozone Edge!!

If the wind is stronger and I use a smaller kite and it pulls about the same like with 17m, I can go upwind easily. I think a big kite and sm...

Re: Please help Israel

I would like to know what happened, how to hurt a leg so badly and amputation is the only way? IMHO it is not a good idea to kite without a good insurance. You can save money without insurance but this is what can happen I have seen so many fundraising scams around the Internet, I wouldn't send mone...

Re: Why are the majority of kites so ugly?

I don't like the mess of different colors and nonsense patterns on the kites and kiteboards.. I think this is the most awesome kite graphic: http://www.powerkiteshop.com/images/productimages/kites/wainmanmaniacorange.jpg And this board is also cool: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-fNHltqrnK9c/U3YRealw1JI/...
