Re: Switch Lineup

Recently had my 1st ever real problem with a Switch kite as construction is bomber(this issue wasn't the kite's fault it was mine) - I've just never had more than just a question. So, this was my 1st time to really get a sense of customer service. I have tried a few brands and some I've had a good l...

Re: Firewire Vader Helium

Is there any difference though in the way the Helium boards perform or hold up to typical abuse vs the FST boards? I was wondering if a 5'1" FST vader was perfect for me - should I think about getting a 4'10" Helium?

Re: Holbox Mexico

Hey Billy! Holbox should not be windy or you will only have around 30% of getting wind while you are there, if that. We are over in El Cuyo, just a short drive from Holbox and closer to Merida anyways. In April, we will have wind every day. I would bring the 14-9m and I am confident you will ride y...

Re: Switch Lineup

Designer schimsigner, like you can name anyone from the big name kite brands. I always knew who was designing my kites and this will continue. Please - let the world in on your infinite wisdom & design your own kite. I'm positive they'd be so brilliant no one on this forum would have a single negat...

Re: Switch Lineup

Element 6 is a mistake and it messed up the whole line up. Basically it is a neutered Nitro, but it is not Element, but it retains it's name.... Basically you are saying the previous line up was wrong. Something was wrong with Nitro and Element5? Who told you that? I would prefer for the Element 5 ...

Re: biggest regret purchase

Gopro remote. I used it maybe a total of 3 hrs but it sat for a year. Then next time I tried to use it it wouldn't charge, wouldn't turn on - nothing. Totally tits-up. Customer service guy tried to help but in the end its dead. Since it sat for a year - no warranty left. Wasn't salty, sandy, cracked...

Re: Switch Lineup

But with no Nitro and no onshore wave kite, there nothing here for me.
They still have plenty of N-6's on hand - buy up a bunch of them. Not sure why you think the new H3 wouldn't work in onshore waves?

E6's are all kinds of fun too

Re: How dangerous is this?

3M surf? No life jacket on the kid? Seems unbelievably stupid no matter his skills. Having said that - it's his child & should the worst happen he will pay a lifetime of misery & regret which would be totally on him, she'd just be dead. I wonder what the laws there would have done to him if the wors...

Re: Nosaro Costa Rica Beta

Light wind, great waves. You may get lucky & get a session but I'd only take a big kite you like riding directionals with. Foiling is possible
