Re: Red Bull Megaloop in the Netherlands

NJ broke his board in the second round when he borrowed a 7m kite.

The megaloop competition was not 'woosted' so I'm not sure what theprevious poster is on about. Woo comp was extra. Akkersdijk won highest of NL by 0.1 from a local at a different spot 😁😁.

Re: Best height reached on a 9m Naish Pivot according to Woo

I got my '17 Pivot 9 last week, and have flown it 3 times now with waveboard (1) & twintip. Happy to get a new PR yesterday at a meagre 8.3m 😂. Still a lot left on the table so I should be able to move up soon. 19.5 will probably not be on the cards soon. Or ever 😂 Also a new hangtime record at 6.5sec

Re: Best hurricane ultra high wind 40 plus knot kite

Indeed Plummet. And then there's the issue of what we're actually talking about, gusts or steady wind. I've been out in gust Mid-40s. No issue whatsoever for my 85kg & Pivot 7m since steady wind typically is in the high 30s. I've been out in gusts in the low-50s on my Pivot 5m. Steady wind mid-40s. ...

Re: DSD Stallion 5'4 - anyone rode it?

I have seen a number of Stallions on the beach that don't look dinged up like the board above. Today I finally got to ride a V2 5'2". I have a Vanguard 5'2" myself. Only 10 minutes but I have a few things to share. The Stallion is a confidence inspiring board. through the chop it felt muted, as if i...

Re: 2018 Naish kites

The balance between front tube and trailing edge is going to be different when the latter weighs less. So unless the front tube is lightrr as well, the centre of the kite will be in a different position compares to before. I assume that will have an impact on the drifting capabilities. We'll see whe...

Re: 2018 Naish kites

I have put my new 8m Pivot on top of the 2017. The only difference seems to be the trailing edge. No dacron anymore, but doubled with canopy cloth in that shark teeth fashion. Looks like that this year it is about weight optimization. I am curious if I will feel any difference when flying. Keep us ...

Re: 60 feet jump for a 15 year old kid

It was a windy day indeed in the Netherlands, 38 knots with gusts up to 46. Good kickers as well.

Re: New Naish Dash

Thing is, my 'big' kite is a Pivot 10m 2015, which I like for its low end but I find it slow turning, especially for waveriding, even on the fastest steering line setting. So I was wondering whether I can get away with an equal size Dash in terms of low end and gain a quicker kite for the small wave...
