Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Same thing? Or something else? Similar but not quite, it. I like the kite to sit back but still fly and respond. What they describe is pulley bridle moving the kite back to the point it's like flying a garbage bag. Is it helpful, yes but doesn't compare to static bridle on the kite designed to fly ...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

I have a feeling that majority of us who actually pay for their equipment are in onshore. All I can say is: if you ever have a chance to test used kites that I mentioned, do it. If you get what I am talking about, the next time the industry releases one by accident, get on it, so we don't have burn ...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Why upwindability is not first on my list in onshore? The best waves are close to shore so if you ride them you will end up on shore. So HTF? I pick the place that will be 45-75 deg onshore, I ride the waves to shore and come back in shallow flat water along the beach right to where I started. Probl...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

I am ready to sacrifice a little upwind with boards too. As I said before I don't like kites designed for Hawaii, but I love pure surf (Hawaiian) board shapes for onshore. I like surf tail, rails and high rocker for tight bottom turn. In onshore, the waves are close together so you have little space...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

I never tried Kahoona's but <2015 Catalyst and E5 are not grunty and they take you upwind almost as good as Edge and Nitro respectively.

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Doesn't matter what you call it. Everywhere I go the conditions happen to be that I ride down the wave with the wind in my back. For this kind of geometry I like the kite that flies back in the window and delivers smooth power in the turns. Flying back in the window doesn't mean bad upwind. Anybody ...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Onshore can be a lot of fun if you have the right kite and you know how to fly it. The waves are short and even if you get the long one the wind will tumble it, so forget down the line. You have to grab a piece and go up and down with it. Here is how I do it with a kite that flies back and turns smo...
