Re: Camber fatality

In The Netherlands nobody uses an helmet unless they wave kite or foil. The only ones you see with helmets are students or tourists, they usually create their own danger by not knowing where and how to launch, how to rig for the wind/skill and all kinds of other kook behavior. Helmets do increase th...

Re: Camber fatality

Accidents happen, some people are just kooks, some have bad luck. Even with the kites of today and working quick releases, accidents happen.

Re: Woo 1.0 vs 2.0 vs 3.0

Without reality test maybe the v1 was the correct one...we Will never know... Agree. Seems as though the WOO has got more inaccurate with its later versions. GPS is not the best technology for height especially one made in a $10 Chinese sweat shop. From my observations in the last week with the WOO...

Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

For low level wakestyle the risk of injury isn't that bad I think. It's more when you go in it with full power like the pro's do, they ride with so much power that the impacts can be really hard. I have no ambition to do multiple air passes but landing a nice blind judge or backmobe would be great.

Re: Why kitesurfers are more men than soccer players?

90%+ of the kiters just mow the lawn, sorry, with football you at least get some excercise.

Re: Calling cold water kiters! - Glove me.

Ripcurl flash bomb 3/2 5 finger, not pre-curved but the best I've had and I've had a lot. They are a nice balance between warmth and flex.

Re: Riders announced for Red Bull King of the Air 2018

With some swell the water is glassy with big waves with a large period, this makes cape town kite beach a dream location for this event. Big bay has apartments/buildings upwind which causes the gusty conditions.

Re: feedback on Zeeko

I've had a quiver of zeeko krush 2014, they were ok kites. Nothing special but not bad. I did have several issues with the kites though, in some configurations the kite would jellyfish pretty bad in windy conditions, I had to adjust the frontlines to get rid of this. The 9m which I used the most had...
