Re: Cape Town safety and riding convention basics

. Imo CT oceanside, with its nuking wind and massive waves, really is an experienced-only spot. Beginners just get punished by the conditions, endanger themselves and others, and take up space of those that do know what they are doing. Everything else being equal, if you're an adult, make up your o...

Re: Cabrinha Moto

oh man can you please stop repeating same on same on "best to test gear before you buy it" great advice from cabrinha dealer, one of the biggest if not the biggest kite manufacturing company which has loads of demo days. It is virtually impossible to demo all kites you consider to buy as most of th...

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

If you have limited time and can only go out once every so often, than investing in hydrofoiling is definitely worth it. By adding a hydrofoil to your quiver, you greatly decrease your dependence on the conditions, while you increase your flexibility which will result in more fun on the water for su...

Re: Jesse Richman leaving Naish

not in the kite business...but in the energy drinks business ! I gotta ask: does anybody actually drink that stuff? :-? I only drank it a few times in my early twenties, mixed with vodka while going partying. Guaranteed black outs and heart-racing hangovers the next day - that stuff is pure poison ...

Re: Jesse Richman leaving Naish

I've always wondered how much these guys make. Probably schandalously less than a professional surfer like Kelly Slater, who are treated like superstars and receive millions. Shame, really...

Re: Accident at Kite Beach, Bloubergstrand, South Africa

Although I'm not a local, I fully agree with the above post. The number of people I see in CT that shouldn't be on the water in those conditions in the first place, is staggering. So many people out there that are teabagging their way across the water, completely overpowered, no edge control, and no...

Re: Felt like I Nearly Drowned

Pounding waves with probably strong currents, and winds where you need to go out on a 14m sounds like a bad idea / not fun session to begin with. If the kite was backstalling like that, you were probably choking it by indeed pulling in the bar too much, and light winds make this even more likely. Ne...

Re: 2018 Naish Slash

Talking about last year’s Slash & Pivot, but without having flown a 10m, there are clear differences between both kites, they definitely fly and feel differently. If you have to chance to test them back to back, you should. I think there might be a chance that the Pivot is the most efficient size he...

Re: Vietnam Kiting, Please Share Your knowledge

I did a road trip in April 2013 from HCMC up to Hong Kong, was pretty sweet. Great food, parties, and everything cheap. Spent 12 days in Mui Ne and was out almost every day - beginning of the day 12m, afternoon 9m. 2 days with winds too strong for my 9. This was in april, end of the season, so it do...
