Re: Firewire Vader

I have a 4' 10" evo and 5' 6" celebritas more a classic surfboard shape. The evo is more slashy. So you can shove it sideways to change direction. On the longer celeritas board you can really bury the rail and nose and power throough a turn so you can just let the rocker turn it. It toook me a coupl...

Re: FCS II fins for Slingshot Screamer

I am partial to the neo glass construction. The hollow core fins are very fragile. One hit on a rock and the are gone.

Neo glass also fit better out if the box because the are molded.

The plastic molded aren't very good, too flexy.

Re: North Kiteboarding 2018

Hmmm, video is now private. Looks like they might have jumped the gun on the video as it detailed some of the 2018 kites which haven't been announced yet.

Re: FireWire Evo KiteSurfBoard

For what it is worth, I am finding the 4' 10" evo to be just right for my weight 75kg (165 lbs) on a good day. It stays on a plane very well, and is very balanced in volume. Compared to say my 5' 6" celeritas, which has about 3 liters more in volume but you have to lean forward to use it all, it is ...

Re: FireWire Evo KiteSurfBoard

20170828_155055.jpg How do you like the Reactors? They seem like a good all around fin. I notice more of a difference in the materials of the fins vice the subtle change in shape in this series. The plastic fins are too flexy. The fancy hollow ones, one hit on a rocks and they are toast. I like the...

Re: FireWire Evo KiteSurfBoard

I just got my 4' 10" HEVO It seems really light, like surfboard light, but I have no reason to believe it won't last. There are a couple of cosmetic blems around the channels. I went smaller because I have a 5' 6" Slingshot Celeritas and running a thruster setup, medium fins. Tempted to go smaller a...

Re: What happened to "Twister Tech" ?

So whats better twisty or rigid LE? Naturally you want both! There's no free lunch, . absolutely you want both - the waroo pro had the most cuben in the leading edge and it felt like a rigid piece of aluminum in the air and was absolutely fantastic and jumping but didn't' turn worth diddly the HP 0...
