Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

... cause even after 16 years of kiting, the feel and flow of the SB puts a smile on my kiting heart everytime. :rollgrin: Judging by your nickname, after 16 years of riding nothing but Cabs - you really need to get out of your bubble and try other stuff - just for the sake of it... At the very lea...

Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

a very strange comparison. Might be a Core dealer..... :bye: Doesn't matter, Cores are a lot easier on one's arms, especially the GTS-es. SB has always been a phat elephant in that regard. FYI, GTS <> Switchblade. These are totally different kites. When was he last time you rode a Switchblade, what...

Re: Ozone Enduro V2

Flown c kites since forever, unhook intermittently but generally freeriding, jumping, the odd loop, would like to loop more but get wimpy coz of the c kite wang, strapless surfboard from time to time. Feel like time to move on! Don’t get out as often as I’d like so a kite which is a bit more forgiv...

Re: Ozone Enduro V2

Anyone flown the 2018 Switchblade, and Enduro either V1 or V2? I am about to splash on Ozone Enduros but am being recommended to consider the Switchblade as well... It might be a good idea to specify what are you aiming at? What's your riding style and in which direction you're progressing? Though ...

Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

Not sure of 2018 but my 2017 was hurting my elbows, sold it and got gts4, could not be happier, low end is not as good but overall so much nicer kite a very strange comparison. Might be a Core dealer..... :bye: Doesn't matter, Cores are a lot easier on one's arms, especially the GTS-es. SB has alwa...

Re: How to self land core sensor pro bar

1)It's a bit too much wind to be self landing in that fashion to begin with
2)C-shapes don't self-land too well, especially in stronger winds
3)There's nothing preventing you from walking all the way to the split and doing what you usually do

Re: Ozone vs Core

If you listen to someone who's living is derived from "brand X's" sales (or they wish it was), you can easily recognize it. GraemeF is good example of someone who will tell you everyone else sucks, but my stuff is the best. If you take advice about gear on this forum, don't take it from someone who...

Re: quiz for armchair kite designers

Also, it seems to me that even a few inches of difference between front line lengths don't affect LEI flight characteristics much. I used to have kites which had a few adjustment knots on both rear and front pigtails and on a few occasions I've actually managed to use different knots on front lines...

Dan, while we're at it - does CS Freeride come with a different spreader than other models (Vertex, Apex)? It looks a bit more compact - or it might just be me...

Re: Foot straps and foot injuries

Could it be just strain? Something similar happened to me quite a few years back: first day of a kite trip (after a couple of months of nothing), I went out while it was a bit too light with a board which was a bit too wide (like 47cm wide) in fairly choppy conditions. By the time wind picked up and...
