Re: Bar Pressure

On the wingtips, no, in fact because the kite turns faster on the lower bar pressure setting, you can usually get more power since you can turn the kite faster.

On the front line bridle, depending on what the setting does, it could make the kite more grunty by making it sit deeper in the window.

Where'd you steal it from? Might be able to just phone them up and ask.

Re: Hydrofoil, Worth it for me?

I'd almost say go for the slingshot setup just because you can get the flight school masts to make learning trivial. Dunno if moses also sells a half-size aluminum mast, but if they do i highly recommend budgeting for that because it makes things so much easier (and less dangerous) to get started.

Re: Foil board as directional? Anyone tried it?

Never tried it when I owned my alien air, but just going by how huge (thick) the board is... I can't imagine it being too much fun. Skimboards are kind of fun because they are super thin and easy to manipulate. Having no traction under an alien air doesn't sound too worthwhile to me. Just imo. Btw i...

Re: Importance of a lightweight kite for non-foiling

For twintip riding in normal wind, kite weight is not really a big deal. I've always found that when the kite has enough power for me (145 lbs) to ride, the kite will stay in the air and fly just fine. Riding with a surfboard is different, as pointed out above, it may not drift as well or hang in th...

Re: Core bar - correct trim

And yes, making a knot out of steering line pigtail will make it shorter by another CM... THis is exactly why I tight them together when I calibrate with my "pigtails on" method. This basically simulates the lengths when attached to kite's bridle. Unless the kite's bridles come set up to account fo...

Re: Beginner kite line question

Assuming nothing is actually wrong with your lines or stretched brides, you can try adjusting the bridle/rear line attachment points. Make sure the rear line is as close to the end of the leading edge as possible, there is probably a marking there for "least bar pressure", or "fastest turning" (or b...

Re: Looks like trouble

Very good critique. I have forwarded your points on to the creator of the show in hopes that he can correct these deficiencies. Personally the show was ruined for me due to the portrayal of kiteboarding being so unrealistic.

Re: Sometimes I wish I knew my speed

I went with the cheap watch option, bought a Garmin Forerunner 15 on Amazon for like 50 bucks. It's one of the cheaper ones that is waterproof. Used it kiting for 2 years or so and it's still holding up great. Personally I'd rather take an inexpensive watch I don't mind smashing around than a $1000...
