Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Does anyone know for certain that kiting will NOT be allowed inside the jug handle bridge? There appears to be a large area of water on the inside of the bridge, and I'm sure kayaks, SUPs, fishing skiffs, etc. will use that area. My guess is there isn't a kiting prohibition (yet). It's possible the...

Re: 30.4m Jump on Woo?

Usually Woo registers waves as jumps of 1-1.5m. I believe so is here. But what is weird if you look jump timestamps of 20+ meter jumps you see wave jump at the same time. For example 30m jump there is 2s wave jump 2s before high jump. And this pattern is with all over 10m jump that very weird 'over...

Re: Got lofted once

Reminds me of my first powered session on C kite lol. You didn't really experience lofting, more like being slingshot in the air. Diving a 2008 C kite through in upper 20 will result in some real human slingshot experience. Here is my first experience with it and that was after 2 years of kiting, wh...

Re: Launching your kite in +25 knots fully depowered

probably depends on kite but tends to agree, I never depower when i launch when it's really strong i will depower a few inch but not fully to clam cleat else i would probably rig smaller kite lol. it's way easier to control a kite that's fully powered than fully depowered. No problem keeping kite in...

Re: Tried a backroll, broke some ribs!

did that too :lol:
The one that was most painful wasn't a loop, it was just landing flat on rib when attempting backroll with a lot of speed, kite too low, didnt complete rotation, landed flat on rib with spreader bar punching me. It was also first day with impact vest.

Re: Whose lost a kite at sea?

some friend of mine lost one on a crazy day.
big wave with sand bar 1 mile off, made crazy current, combined with sunset and cold water, rider had to eject to make it back to shore.
He was last rider to come back to shore so took us a while to get back out to help out.

Re: Core and German engineering meme

when i demoed core kite the other day, i noticed that tons of sand was stuck around the PU line. According to that French kitetool constructor the sand in US is very coarse compared to wherever he kites at in Europe. https://kitesurfvoilier.fr/en/ I did get a few of his tools and they pretty much do...
