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

In the UK we only have 9m left, no other sizes (maybe one 15) original production stopped and the next production is delayed so excess stock is hard to come by - and also - airush are a normal kite company - ie they don't manufacture for closeout, so I doubt there will be much clearance going on... ...

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

What do you think about your airush wave 12 ? It's nice, and holds good power too, but in really light winds wave riding, generally I find frustrating - I would rather foil. If there is enough wind for the 9, which is not that much, then you can ride wave properly. I tend to throw the kite around a...

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

I've had Airush Wave in 12 and 9 nearly every year since the first ones, and use the 9 Ultra exclusively for foiling. I struggle to keep a 12 Ultra in the van as it always gets sold from under me - they have sold really well in this size. They go out for demo and never come back. A 1st world problem...

Re: Airush Vantage 2016

Hey Fred. I've been searching for a woo advantage for a while and came across the vantage 2016 in a clearance list early in the year. I bought an 11.. It didn't feel like it ripped off the water like the union II, in fact the Union III feels like even more of an uplift, but when you check the hang a...

Re: Shinn Jackson foil 120

My personal experience , I would say that you sound like a very advanced rider - the majority of kiters getting into the sport are not your level - it's a hard sport to master, with no end of used super aggressive kit (that the majority cannot ride). We've seen two seasons of an impossible learning...

Re: Shinn Jackson foil 120

We've done so well with the jackson and the Shinn foils this year in the UK. The F foil is pretty quick and well liked by those who are high level, but for us the market has been dominated by the P wing. It's been like the depower kite revolution in foilboarding - gets up and going at 7 kmh, and it'...

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

Here's another vid... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzwAvxtq1BQ this was last week in Brand Bay - Ireland. We didn't have the 12 with us (sold out in the UK again) but did have the 9 and 7 - this vid was shot on the 9. Rider is Mark Shinn. He's not officially tied to Blade anymore, and for all foi...

Re: Airush Union III: Throw Loops, Throw Spray, & Throw It Down

Couple of words that may help :-) The bar is neater - yup - you need a tool now, but you know, I didn't adjust the bar at all last year - best to disassemble and clean to stop it clogging every few months - but most people don't touch the bar length. 14m+ may need the bigger bar, but it flies fine w...

Re: Airush Union III: Throw Loops, Throw Spray, & Throw It Down

I currently ride a 9M 2014 Varial X. Im well overdue to changing my kite, I love how it rides, but its starting to show its years and Im considering the Union. Like you, I've ridden unions mainstream since 2014, with a dabble on razors for half a season.. The 2014 was a good year to those who can r...

Re: The New Airush Lithium Series - The World Favorite Freeride Kite

I think it's a lovely video, makes me want to kite... The Lithium is one of those kites that has evolved around those who love it over many years - it's consistently one of our best sellers in the UK, year after year. If your pushing the sport in terms of aggressive riding then it's relevant to the ...
