Re: That is what got me into kites

True, with all these low cost drones, kids dont learn to fly with anything "real" nomore :cry: In fact, many dont really go out to explore the nature or play ball in the garden - because of their mobile smartphones :( I dont like this trend - and am somewhat going along myself, but try not to use th...

Re: When do you start wearing boots and gloves?

I am amazed to see one vote from some who freezes without boots in 15 to 20 degrees, but this just shows how different we are :naughty:

When do you start wearing boots and gloves?

This is just for fun, to see how different we are around the world. At what temperatures, and below, do you put your boots, and gloves on? Assuming your water and air is around the same temperture that is. And I know it depends whether raining or sunny, but just as your best average personal choice....

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Why a Peak4 5 m² has more power than a 5 m² Lei? What I have notice is that Foil kite doesn't have that "C" shape, they are more flat, they tend to have more area perpendicular to the wind. Is it this that make them more powerful for m²? All foil kites has more power than LEIs per m2 surface area, ...

Re: New Wetsuit Arrived Today

Ha haa, funny :rollgrin: But this is exactly how most warmer wetsuits have been the last 25 years. When a zipper that is, because most use zipless suits, or a short chest zip. These are the warmest suits, but too difficult for me to get into and out of :roll: For your suit, jump into your suit, let ...

Re: Directional with straps for small Waves / Not for lightwind, not for freestyle

I might be wrong, but I dont think many of you understand what the desire is? Most boards are too wide, some are for strapless and often even more useless, more square and straight edges, or simply wider, or too light (fragile) or no inserts, and if, they are just put on afterwards, so the board is ...

Re: Directional with straps for small Waves / Not for lightwind, not for freestyle

I like your honest relieving post. I ride with straps also now, a few years strapless was used, but made no sense really, so around here almost noone ride strapless - no advantages, only disadvantages really, unless you are bored and want to make it more difficult for some odd reason... Wont get int...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2021

Very true, Horst was the man to share his stoke of this very different type of ram air kite, eventhough not riding waves. I was from nature sceptical but curious, but got convinced to try, from Tom and Horst, still being sceptical though, but have never looked back ever since, NOTHING compares to th...
