Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Hmm. I don’t think there’s one company that’s miles ahead of the competition. Most make a great booster, looper etc. I threw some savings at new XR kites and Fusion board last summer and love all of it. I don’t doubt there are other all-rounders that are just as good but I’ve not tried anything bett...

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

I've read this. Still would buy a Core. Thanks. Me too. Learned on used Core gear and for the last 3 years have ordered through their online shop (I live in Denmark). Never any issues and always quick to respond with whatever questions (or even suggestions) I send. Of course it's not a problem for ...

Yup. Try the app. Provides ECMWF, NEMS and ICON models without charging for it like some other apps.

Re: What does true mean for you?

The “true kiteboarding” thing is exactly what my previous comments have addressed. This is the branding game at work and those who think consumers behave rationally just don’t know the facts. If we were all homoeconomicus then economists would be gods and clearly, they’re not. Let’s take an obvious ...

Re: Launching a kite when no one is around

It’s not worth it to drag your lines through sand and debris just to do a pure water launch. If you’ve got no space or anchor for a simple self launch then you should be asking yourself why you’ve chosen to kite in that spot. The clip above is a perfect example of what to do with good side-on wind o...

Re: What does true mean for you?

ION wetsuits are not top quality but I've never had a problem with mine. Decent value for the price you pay. Agree that the build quality of North/Duotone bars is not what it could be.
