Re: Kitesurfing wave spots around the world

Cabarete is hardly a great wave spot, but got some waves. If you are looking for up to 8 different spots around in that time period I´m not sure if you will find 6-7 better than Cabarete (South Africa and Brasil being out of season).

Re: Sardinia kitesurfing in July

Love Sardinia. For flat water I´m guessing Punta Trettu would be the best? Not exactly the most exciting part of the island, but the spot is nice when the wind is good. Might be quite crowded in July though. And because the wind is close to straight offshore it tends to become quite congested. Off s...

Re: Travelling with Flydubai: baggage policy

Are you booking directly with FlyDubai or through Emirates? If through Emirates there should be no problem. Directly I don´t know.

Terrible airline. No legroom. Crap terminal in Dubai. Just a mess and I´m not surprised information is lacking on their homepage.

Re: Large Kite that will relaunch

Catalyst is the easiest kite I have ever tried when it comes to relaunching. Almost bounces off the water. But the 14m is hardly a proper lightwind kite. Never had any issues with Zephyr either, but a bit more tricky than the Catalyst. Still easy though. Even when there isn't wind enough for me to k...

Re: What 14-15m kite feels most like a small kite? Lightness, turning speed, but still has power for LW?

I love the Zephyr, but compared to a 12 it is obviously slow. And not sure how well it works with a surfboard? In flat water no problem, but for more fine tuned riding in waves.... I certainly wouldn't have the skills to ride well under such condition with the Zephyr. When it pulls it really pulls -...

Re: Ozone Enduro V3 Release Date ?

I bought two v1s about 7-8 months ago. They were sold at a discount as the v2 was coming, but even 10 months ago the store was selling v1s as the "latest" Enduro (even if that wasn't really the case). So my guess is that the v3 is not exactly right around the corner. Even more so as both v1 and v2 a...

Re: How fun is kiting in Tarife in Levante?

I never experienced straight offshore in Tarifa, but it is offshore in Levante. Never felt unsafe though as there are so many kiters, windsurfers and a couple of rescue boats around. Quite often it feels like kiting in a war zone when it is Levante. I´ll probably go back because it is "always" windy...

Re: Fatality in France

I do not consider kitesurfing to be especially dangerous, but boy have I seen some stupid behavior around (a general comment - I have no idea what happened in this case). Reminds me about what I see riding my motorcycle. I like to ride fast, but in traffic, in wet conditions etc. I will always be ve...

Re: Netherlands Question

I hate being cold, but I would say no need to invest in anything thicker if you got a 3/2 already. Personally that would be my preferred choice anyway.

Re: Ozone Catalyst V1 vs Blade Trigger

I guess this is why so few kites are marketed as "beginner kites". It is not like the Catalyst is a kite for schools and the first few weeks after. Who would make such a kite? Who would buy such a kite? I have seen very skilled riders doing pretty advanced tricks with the Catalyst v1. I would argue ...
