Re: Adriana Harlan killing it - Current issue of The Kiteboa

I didn't realise, hooked in strapped in was "killing it"... There's lots of girls around who can ride unstrapped unhooked. Don't get me wrong, it's great that your wife is getting amongst it and it's great that more women are getting involved in the sport... but lets not get ahead of ourselves. :D ...

Re: Self Launching

I'm going to start using the achor method in where you attach your CL to the anchor... That is NOT A SELF-LAUNCH. It can be a handy method, but you need to learn how to do an unassisted self-launch and self-land of your own kite. You may drift downwind and need to land somewhere that you hadn't pla...

Re: Paragliders walking on Kite

Some nice shots, but I had to quickly peruse this video. When posting videos to youtube, etc, you must ask yourself... "Am I showing something different at three minutes in than I already showed them in the first minute?" If you take a hard look at your video footage when answering this question, yo...

Re: 2011 Ocean Rodeo Leashless Board Recovery Device, Go Joe

Nice engineering. But as others have said, simply too expensive for what it is offering. Sure, you will sell one to Richard Branson, and maybe he will mount one on his girlfriend too to keep an eye on her when she falls off his back. But I can't see something like this selling in great numbers until...

Re: Shit happens. With BP this time...

One thing which makes me chuckle is the American peoples rush to abdicate responsibility. It's simplest and most charming attempts come from trying to distance the USofA from the incident completely by changing the name of the oil company. We've already had one American do it in this thread. The co...

Re: schools and helmets...

You come up with bicycling, good example. Holland must be one of the top bicycling countries. At every railway stations there's 100s to several 1000s of bicyles. We have separate bicycle roads everywhere. Kids start at 5 and elders continue into their 90s, daily use. No Dutchman wears a helmet. Irr...

Re: Board bag for daily use?

Most kite bags have a way to strap the board to your back.

Re: schools and helmets...

Some wakeboarders I have spoken to say that there are pros and cons to wearing a helmet for water sports where you land on water very hard.l Yep, the wakeboarders have been facing this dilemma much longer than the kiters. But if you start googling for articles about wakeboarders wearing helmets, yo...
