Re: Slingshot business - Europe

- pretty hard to speculate what will happen after covid19. 2 weeks to flatten the curve! I am aware that stocks are low all over the world - still I see that e.g. 2020 gear is on sale in German webshops. 30% on kites, and 40-50% on boards. Some parts of sales have seen a decrease in demand too. Lik...

Hilarious.. kitesurfers talking about upwind performance, yet nobody mentions, windshifts, tide - positive and adverse. Here's a tip, learn to sail first then learn to kitesurf it'll be an eye opener. :lol:
It didn't work for pulley.

Re: What influences going upwind

I used to be really proud of my upwind capabilities. I'd get compliments. A Canadian destroyed me. My kites are older and beginner orientated. "There's always a bigger fish" I'd rather be stuck in kite hell only doing downwinders The boringnessiness of a thruster. Upwind ain't everything. Get off t...

Maybe the RPX has too much overlap with the Raptor, and they rather go with the RPX.
The raptor ain't for anyone over 40. That thing will snap you in half. I'm going with a more gentle core xr!

Re: What influences going upwind

You are joking about wanting to teach me something about kite and board handling....right ? No, my offer is sincere. I have used that 3.0m HQ Apex, and a 7.5 before it, to teach a dozen intermediate/advanced riders and a handful of full on advanced riders. And the beginners that have 2 sessions on ...

Re: Bit help please...

A friend of mine and I took some of our old fixed bridle foil kites and made speed systems for them. In steady wind, they kind of worked as depower kites. In turbulent wind, they didn't.

Handles are best for fixed bridle. Bars work. Converting to depower doesn't seem to work(on most kites).
