Re: Pivot Unbaised Review. Good Kite For Surf?

Totally disagree w Bartolo and agree w Xray. I'm coming off Neos, probably the best wave kite in the world and Pivot is right there. If Naish's marketing department didn't tell you there was a better drifting kite, you'd never notice the difference. I've slacked the lines tons of times, bombing down...

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

I hate self landing in high wind. 5th line is the best method I've used so far. But even this will leave the kite floating upside down in the air while I try to climb up the fifth line. Line cutting into my soft, girly hands. Best method I've found when hopelessly overpowered and no one around, not...

Re: Update for me once dead kitesurfer

Joe, you are a true inspiration. A lot of people would give up and just feel sorry for themselves, but you obviously get it. Seems like you have a wonderful family and network of friends, and that is the most important thing in the world. Best of luck in your continued recovery and keep up the posit...

Re: Ride Engine 2018 Harnesses

For what it's worth, I tried the 2017 RE harness and it created a weird pressure point on my back. Based on the reviews I expected it to be a slam dunk. I'm back to riding my 8 season old mystic warrior - problem is the Velcro is dead. Anyone else have this problem? I hated the 2017 RE. It pinched ...

Re: North Zippers

Agree, the older bags are still holding up, but new zippers are shit. I have a bag from a Rebel 2007 that's still perfectly fine.

Re: More and more riders on less and less spots?

Opposite...less and less riders...same amount of spots...from what i see....in the waves...they all gather in flat water like sheeps....yippie ! :jump: Same at my spot and I wouldn't want it any other way. Once in a while a bunch of kooks show up from D.C. area (about 2.5 hours away) and we hate th...

Re: The new Ocean Rodeo Mako featuring Bliss air Pads and Straps

Somebody please tell me those straps/pads are cushy. I STILL haven't found anything remotely close to the original OR Bliss straps and pads. Mine are pretty trashed and you can't find them anymore. I've wasted about a thousand dollars searching for equivalent pads but nothing even comes close to the...

Re: North Rebel 2018

Think this will kill resale for 5-line Rebels? I'm looking at a 2017 on closeout right now.
