RE: [ksurfschool] Re: 4 season kite???... LIBRE (com)
- Since everyone is trying to suggest some kites..
Libre Bora is an excellent kite for land, but designed to be flown with
handles and by experienced riders. We are JOJO and Libre North American
distributor and we have lots of hands-on experience with these kites. For
kiteskiing you should also consider the fabric characteristics - regular
Skytex (one side coated) absorbs water much faster than Chikara (two sides
coated) and sometimes ( at least here on west/wet coast) snow gets slushy
As far as Predator or Blades go - JOJO and LIBRE are even cheaper, better
made and for sure provide much better power and upwind. I have no problem
saying that - our results in both kiteskiing ( 2001 WISSA world champion)
and kitebuggying (1-2-3 USA 2000 & 2001; leaders in Europe since 1997
including 1-2-3 in 2001) speak for itself.
(We have replacement bridles for 3-line bar kiteskiing modification for all
JOJO kites and we should be able to offer this option to Boras as well)

Hi, Apologies all for talking about land based kites
here - delete if not interested
Rob sorry if I gave you the impression that Libre
Bora's can be used on water. They are designed
specifically for land. They do not work well with a
control bar, due to a fancy reactive bridle system.
If money is not an option then a couple of the best
land based kites would be a Predator mkIII, or Libre

heres a link to some of the manufacturers
Now, I have never flown an Arc, but, I have heard that
kites such as the Rhea foil have better handling
characteristics, its worth investigating. There are a
number of other manufacturers who have water based ram
air foils out this year, they are based more on the
shape of land based kites and therefore more efficient
than the inflatable or inflatable shaped kites (such
as the arc)

Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5 people
in my family, so it must be one of them. It's either my mum or my dad. Or my
older brother Colin. Or my younger brother Ho-Cha-Chu.
But I think it's Colin. --Tommy Cooper
