Re: Dakine option spreader

Re: Dakine option spreader

I'm thinking about ordering a 10", have no way to try one first. I've been using a small Dakine Renegade with a 10" Dakine bar for years. Trouble with dropping from a 10 to 8" is that you loose 2" of travel & I want more travel, not less. Could someone please measure the extra distance needed for th...

If there's anyone that has a Element6 5m (one strut) & could let me know the weight of this kite please ?

why would you take an H3 over a 0 or 1 strutt design ?
More versatile kite for riders who want something for more than just foiling?
I agree with your answer to my question. I'm only in the early stages of foiling myself & a long time wave rider - so H3 seems ideal for me.

Re: Switch Lineup

I think the H3 looks great but at the moment the foiling market looks to be saturated by zero or one strutt designs.
@ Felix, can you explain why Switch chose this path for the H3 please.
So what I'm really asking is why would you take an H3 over a 0 or 1 strutt design ?

Thanks, Top
