Like said before: self launch/land kahoonas would be a very good one.

There is a reason for that, at least as far as I'm concerned. We don't think most people should be self-launching in high wind, and we don't want to empower them with a "how to" video.

Well we might not have Alvaro on video with the Taboo, but I can guarantee you some Joe and Miguel action next week.

Pulley replacement?

Pump maintenance? (Your pump stops pumping, what do you check?)

Proper way to hold your kite while your girlfriend changes her bathing suit behind it?
Just 'cause I kiteboard don't mean I'm an air-head....

Hi Brian,
How about a bar & lines tuning video for the 2010 (2011) RLP BAR.
Also set ups for maximum performance with the Kahoona V3 in varying winds.
I hate when my kite wants to try and backstall in lighter winds because i haven't got it tuned or set up properly.
Also do you have anymore wavekiting videos in the pipeline coming soon ?
Thanks , keep them coming !!!

Yes we will have some more wave videos coming. I will put the tuning video on the list. If you kite is backstalling in light winds try one of two things. One move the knot one more away from the kite, really lengthening the back lines or it could be just too light for the kite and time to go up a size.

Hi Brian.
Last night I went to a clinic / lecture over here at a local kiteshop for Kite Aerodynamics / Kite rigging and tuning / Apparent wind .
It was very informative and I was able to understand why and how to adjust the performance of my kites and bars .
I never realised that my front lines on a relatively new bar can stretch under load by only a little in a short time to alter the original flying performance, re my backstalling problem.
There is not much info out there to be found but to search,try and tell. ( I don't like when my kite death loops )
Any info for dumb asses like me whether it's on the BEST online manuals or video will help.

How about a Nemesis kite loop off of no less than an eight foot wave?
