Re: Too much power?!

I would agree that a 17m is too much for almost anyone. You will quickly become overpowered once you develop any apparent wind at all, (which you will very quickly once you are gaining speed on plane). I'm 100kg and i can go on a 12m NEO in 7 or 8 knots and a 9m in 10-11 knots. You just have to lear...

Re: Big Guy Kite Recommendations?

I'm 220lbs and my typical quiver has been 7/10/14m Rebels and a Juice 18. The 14 Rebel would get me going in 12 knots on a 134cm twintip (barely) and the Juice 18m in 8 or 9. I also have a surfboard and a foilboard which takes the 14m down to 7 knots . I just refreshed my quiver yesterday and went t...

Re: Foiling with Seabirds

At our home spot (El Jardin Beach , Houston) the water gets super thick with fish, it's actually quite annoying. I usually get knocked off my foil 2 - 3 times per session hitting large fish which throw me over the front. I've never seen any fish killed or stunned by impact, but we are hitting 2 poun...

Re: 2016 North Rebel 16m2 vs Juice 18m2

Then I switched to NEOs as I got more and more into waves. My biggest kite is now an 11m NEO which pulls like a 12-13m. Mr Moon / Bryan: I'm similar, probably older and heavier (220lbs). My quiver for years has been Rebel 10m, Rebel 14m, and either a Dyno 18 or a Juice 18 for super light days. I'm ...

Re: Looking for a good kite for Foiling, any tips?

Pedro - My experience. I'm fanatic North Loyalist, only brand of LEI I've ever owned since 2002. I've been on Rebels since they were introduced in 2007, now on my 4th set (2015 Rebel 10 and 14). I'm 100kg and use the Rebel 14 in 7 to 10 knots, Rebel 10 in 10 to 16 knots, Fuse 7 above that. Rebels ar...

Re: Nobile Zen Splitboard

The problem is that when use it as wave board it is vibrating and high sound from it. There is same space between the two parts he have a carbone splitboard and it is not look the same. He went back to the store and they took a new one to give him but the same deformation on the surface and same 1-...

Re: Nobile Zen Splitboard

Alvaro I've not tried it but I would imagine you could put other straps on the Split Board. It has an (M6?) insert not a machine screw like some other boards. I find that the board works great strapless, so I have just removed them. I think the Check-In bag is constructed of maximum dimensions that ...

Re: Moses T40 board - are people happy with it? Any negatives?

TOM - you are onto something, I think board displacement below the waterline has a huge impact. I've been riding an Alien Air and it is pretty tricky to strapless waterstart. Just got a Nobile Splitboard and it is so much easier to strapless waterstart. Thinner rails, not as wide or thick, less boar...
