Re: Jesse Richman's Terrifying Snowkiting Incident - Pushing the Limits

This is not really anything new, Ruben and many others have taken LEIs over cliffs / steep edges and basically paraglided down. And don’t tell me this was a massive surprise / scary emergency - he would have known the wind conditions and prepared specifically to do that. Not that it doesn’t take lot...

Re: now foil kiters are saying their kites drift better

Not much point telling us about a 3m / 4m wave kite - this is only useful for hydrofoiling...so it’s not a wave kite....

Re: now foil kiters are saying their kites drift better

Drift is all very well but for a good wave kite you also want (or at last I do) a fast responding kite with good positive bar feedback. When a foil kite comes out with all of that then maybe LEIs will have competition in waves. Not sure it’s gonna happen though.

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12 difficult to handle at the top end

Good luck finding any 12-13m foil kite or 14-15m+ LEI that isn't a handful above 20 knots. It's just physics innit!

Re: Speed Record for hydrofoiling ?

Seems strange that since you can go faster in lower winds on a foil board and obviously there’s massively lower drag - the logical conclusion would be that you should be able to reach a greater maximum speed.

Re: What to replace enduros with?

Yep they’re lovely in waves, had my best sessions ever in strong wind and waves, one thing I have noticed compared to the Enduro V2s I had before them is really precise bar feeling, bar pressure might be a bit heavier than some might like but it works great when you’re doing rotations, downloops and...

Re: What to replace enduros with?

I can recommend the new Bandits for low end, boosting and looping but not sure about the unhooking bit as haven’t tried that yet, I think they work ok for unhooked stuff but won’t give great slack and are sensitive to trimming unhooked.

Re: High Modulus Carbon

I did want to watch it but he talked so slowly in the first 20 secs and then I realised it was 30 minutes long so I gave up!
