Re: Darkslide Variations

Pulling the loop higher or lower is better to get more vertical pull? If you want to go up, your kite needs to be up. Imagine pulling a low loop, really close to the water. How is that going to pull you up? Haha, yes, I kind of thought it..but being Switchblades, if I start the loop high, in high w...

Re: Ilha do Guajiru, Brazil ?

There are two types of opinions: One love it the other hate it. I have been several times and I love it. Relaxed atmosphere, living right next to the water. Stronger winds than in Cumbuco or Paracuru. Some nice areas to play like the Secret Spot and the river mouth. Let's see if you love it or hate...

Re: Canet

I'm from 30km from Canet at La Franqui. Canet's really good when the sea breeze comes in, in summer. Otherwise when it's the Tramontane NW wind blowing it's better to come up to La Franqui. It's packed with tourists anyway in July. Let me know if you want to know anything else. Hello John, Do the s...

Re: Shin Shinnster and El Stubbo first ride!

Ronnie, yes it is possible but the inserts have to be precisely aligned to avoid the risk of cross threading the screws when attaching the plate. pcloud - yes, both boards are very suitable for beginners and the Zeeko foil is great to learn on without limiting your performance down the line (unless...

Re: Shin Shinnster and El Stubbo first ride!

A great start to summer today with some super nice SW winds and first rides on the Shinn foil boards. I'm a big fan of the Shinnster so I was really excited to see that Mark has given it the foil option. The Foil plate is a carbon with wood core that attaches with 8 screws with inserts in the board...
