Re: China copies of big brand kites?

I don't think this is the thread for discussing tax policies. I got friends living in the US and when you add it all up including university fees for their children, health care insurance etc. the difference isn't necessarily that big. VAT is quite intelligent in the sense that it is progressive - w...

Re: China copies of big brand kites?

......then you (unlucky Swede) are going to pay 25% tax + import fees..... Wow that would be a ton of money considering all of the products that are imported! I wonder who gets to keep those import fees? VAT or I guess "sales tax" in the US. In Europe that rate is usually somewhere around 20% in mo...

Re: Height or weight more important for board size

Why would height matter?

There have been some reflections around width related to foot size on here. In theory that sounds like a reasonable point at least - if it matters much in reality I wouldn't know.

Re: China copies of big brand kites?

I would never buy a copy as I find that immoral, but take for example high end wheels for bikes and they are excellent quality wise. Not the fake ones necessarily, but the best Chinese brands are absolutely top notch. Would be great if we got some cost pressure in the kite industry. I'm looking to g...

Re: Kite - Surf - Stay on Zanzibar Island @ Airborne Kite & Surf Village

Airborne is a cool place.

Only thing I didn't like was the noise level from B4 on the beach. Not sure that is still an issue?

I haven't checked lately, but I don't expect Tanzania to have any issues with Covid-19 come January when the wind arrives in Zanzibar.

Re: Core Sensor Bar 3 release

Randomly saw someone out with a XR yesterday. He was definitely not on a Core bar flying it with a Low V.

Should have asked him why, but didn't think about it.

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

And leaving the Paris Climate agreement helps to reduce carbon emissions... how? Your argumentation is so overly simplistic and clearly also has been manipulated by Trump and Fox (China!). Not sure if you are aware, but Trump would love nothing more than to have authoritarian rule over the US... Go...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

It’s not about what Trump says or believes, it is about what he does. Withdrawing from the Paris Climate agreement kinda speaks for its self. So you think that the Paris climate agreement would have actually reduced carbon emissions in the future? Many have rightly pointed out that while the West w...

Re: Duotone 2021

Depends a bit on the size I guess. And personal preference. Fair enough not wanting a faster kite of course, but I don't think it is so strange looking for a faster Rebel. Even if I definitely see the point with you having so much "sheet in" power in them it might get a bit difficult to control if t...
