Re: Copenhagen in a NW wind

Would join you if I wan't working. Pynten should be fine but double check that the storm front has passed. Sunday to Monday is supposed to be shit according to current forecast but I don't know how long into Monday it will continue. Have a great time! https://app.fcoo.dk/ifm-maps/#domain=denmark&zoo...

The timing of your loop is crucial, Try looping your kite just before you reach top of your jump.

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

For those whining about prices, I live in one of the most expensive countries on earth and kiting is anything but cheap here. The following is from one of the largest surfshops in Denmark. 12m kite with top of the line bar incl. pump. Core vs. Duotone vs. Cab Note: Duotone even adds extra cost (75 U...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

This is why people should always take unsubstantiated claims and accusations with a few hundred kilos of salt. At least. are you referring to the original post? I don't really see anything unsubstantiated in it. I sort of went through the same hurdle, replacing my bridles a year before this post (a...

Re: Quite quiver question, should I add a Core XR4/5 15m

Yup. Do it for your wife's sake if she's really getting into the sport. I'm on the same sizes as you for the XR5 and if I could go back and do it over I would switch out my 6 (which mostly collects dust) for a 15. The 9 can handle so much punishment and the jump from 12 to 19 is fine for me. But th...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Then Core should not have appointed a lousy distributor in the USA. In the UK Core has appointed a distributor that many in the industry will have no dealings with. Seems that Core need to sort their international act out. I'm sympathetic to OP's issue but to conclude that as a trend would be, oh I...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Long story short, if CORE is gonna charge $1700 to a kite but - has bridle lines that goes off really quick - has terrible service trying to blame customers - CORE USA being unresponsive and just using sleazy salesman tactics to charge you more. - CORE USA has no spare parts and you are depending t...
