Re: Deal on Airush ultra vs. Naish Boxer

One thing that Airush has going for it - in the long run - the load frame. Having experienced canopy stretching - the hard way - I'm a firm believer that it does make a difference.

Re: Gear advice for 6’2” 210lb guy

All this hate for SBs....Their great kites with lots of power and a good fit for big folks IMO. Yes they have a little more bar pressure than some other kites, but have gotten much better and not an issue for a 6'2, 210lbs , guy. And they have great range. Nobody sais they are bad kites, but if you...

Re: Gear advice for 6’2” 210lb guy

Bandit, Rally, XR4/5, Lithium Basically whatever you can get your hands on other than SB and you're comfortable with the price.. Lot of people seem to like them. They don't like them, just lack the imaginations to go try other stuff outside of what the local Cab's sales rep shoved up their throat...

Re: Gear advice for 6’2” 210lb guy

Lol, anything will be better than Cults... Though with the majority of winds being 10-18 I'd look for something with a lighter bar feel than SB-s. What brands and models are available to you? Your riding style?

Re: Duotone

It's more like this: Everyone who ever kited knew who and what Best was. Elivate? Ain't never going to hold a candle to what Best was. In sales, size, or brand awareness. It might just be me, but I find that Eleveight have really done their homework and turned around quite nicely. Superbly-looking ...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Ive been enjoying my 12M for about 6 months now, exceptional kite, unlike anything I have ever ridden in light winds. I put the kite to the harshest of conditions a few weeks back in Sub 10 kts @ 8,000 ft elevation lake. Tried first with a 13.5 Core XR4 and it could not stay up in the air, while th...

Re: dynamic differences with seat and waist harness

My harness evolution: 1)when got into kiting - got a cheap waist of local classifieds. Obviously when I've got the the "omg! I can stand on the board" stage - started having back pain issues. Waist harnesses and riding in "penguin taking a dump"-stance do not mix well. 2)got an older windsurfing sea...

Re: bar compatibilty

It will work just fine. One would really have pick his nose to find a difference in performance when flying a 9m kite on a high-Y-split vs a V-split bars. Sometimes the kites can fly well in both configurations. I can name at least 2 brands that are designed for a low V that fly awfully with a high...

Re: Bar and kite compatibility

Just wanted to ask if anyone has some extra knowledge on bar and kite compatibility. A friend of mine had a 2017 Cabrinha switchblade 7m and a 2013 Cabrinha bar. We shortly found out that the kite doesn't depower. What do you mean by "doesn't depower"? It doesn't flag or you can't control power by ...
