Re: Newbie looking for the right kite

Just to be clear about this 'kite sitting still' issue (we're really getting off post here). - I'm not saying I have'nt had this happen. More than once I might add. What I'm saying is that in my experience it's not the kites fault. Everyone that has tried to back stall a foil kite to bring it to the...

Re: Newbie looking for the right kite

I'm with Brian on this one. I've been on Ozones since 2004. I own a bunch of kites from Ozone, Flexifoil and Flysurfer. Only tuning I've had to do on my kites is because of line stretch, and that's Flexifoil lines - not Ozone. 90% of the time I'm on a Manta I 10m (snow) and 06 Instinct 13m (water). ...

Re: Looking for tips on how to jump high...

#4 forgetting to redirect.

I see this all the time with beginners. The panic of being airborne - makes them freeze on the bar, pulled all the way in. (Gives them that elavator feeling but with the cost of dropping like a stone)

Re: snowkite trip in northern europe

Hi agin dutchy, Of course I'll show you around and come ride with you. We locals always welcome visitors. Most of the time we're only 2-4 riding together so anyone is always welcome to join. We've pretty much nailed down the best spots in the SV area (around Reykjavik) regarding snowkiting and kites...

- Population about 320.000 of which active snowkiters in the SW area (Reykjavik): 5-8
- Geographic Area: 100,329 km²

It's pretty much yours.

Re: snowkite trip in northern europe

Hi there, desember, pitchblack - yes! Not sure about other places but feb/march would be safer at least in my location at ca. 64° north, regarding snow/daylight. Although we locals take everything we get. Not sure I dare to mention it but Iceland might be something else for you. A bit embarresed to ...

Re: Looping Kite - Safety Discussion

Regarding corrotion; why not just cover the blades in Vaseline. That's what I do. Funny thing, all this talk about slicing fingers. This is probably one of the only things I have in advantage of you guys - not an issue for me. Being member of the one-armed kitebandit club I'm only worrying about fiv...

Re: Looping Kite - Safety Discussion

One thing I think hasn't been mentioned regarding knives in this thread is an idea I read about long time ago in some other thread. Securing the knife on an elastic band/rope. I carry two knives standard mystic one in the harness and a second one on my chest attached to my impact west. I made a pouc...

Re: Most Influential People in the indusrty?

sburlo is so right. At least for me on my isolated island in the north of the Atlantic. We got maybe 5 kitesurfers around here and every once in a while someone that doesnt have a clue tries to become an importer (without any success). (There really should be rules regarding that!) This forum gives ...
