Re: Unhooked - BRICK WALL

I'm flying Switchblade 10/12 - Also I know a C kite is better for unhooking but there's plenty of unhookingness been done on switchblades so let's not blame the kite.

Unhooked - BRICK WALL

Hi everyone, just a bit of background to my skill level. I've been kiting about 10 months and am in a position where I can get out a lot. I'd say for the time I've been riding I've learnt a lot and have got most of the hooked-in (freestyle) tricks pretty much dialled in...kiteloops, back/frontrolls ...

313 leash troubles

Hi, just a quickie!

My outside lines I obviously just spin at the bar but the centre lines are an absolute nightmare to un-tangle next time I l...

Kite Quiver range. Go big, go small or keep it tight?

It's that decision you have to make. What size kite to go with next? I've got a 10m switchblade as my base kite and to be honest this covers me pretty well but I can no longer stand sitting on the bench when the wind creeps over 25 or under 14 knots. I'm looking to get another two kites, bigger and ...
