Re: Kiteboard stiffness and how to describe it?

+1 for Peter
It’s not how much flex alone but where the flex happens. Really hard to quantify.
Sadly, You have to ride them and talk with people who have ridden lots of boards and you know and can trust

Re: Ozone kites 12m low end experience

Since you are talking about Reo’s I assume you are riding waves? If so, you might want to be off the 12 as early as possible and the 10 would be better for that. But in the waves a jump from 10 to 7 might be to big. Where you ride most, how often would you overpowered on the 10 and how often would y...

Re: Cabrinha Trimlite OD bar 2017 and Naish Pivot 2017 Kite

First thing to check is if the Cab bar is tuned right. Or fly the Pivot on the old Naish bar and see if it is the same on both bar setups. Can go from there.

Re: Anyone else dodging "flying fish"?

In the Sea of Cortez east of Baja California we get needlefish jumping and ‘trying’ to stab you. Usually the second person through so maybe the first one scares them and they jump? Not really sure of the reason but if they hit you it’s a major problem. The needle nose breaks off in the muscle(or whe...

Re: Which Kites and lines lenght are most people using for 30 to 50 knots

Riding in the gorge, it is possible to ride in higher winds than most places because in the summer the current is opposite the wind direction so in 35-45 the water does not become ‘Victory at Sea’ chaotic. It can actually get huge river ‘swell’ well over head high and smooth out in between nicely an...

Re: Controlling Speed

Don’t just go back and forth across the wind. Either point higher into the wind and lower your kite or run downwind deeper to release some of the pressure and then lower the kite and point higher upwind. With the kite lower and knees bent edging the board hard you can move/force the kite forward to ...

Re: Best Lightweight Versatile Surfboard

I ride a FW Vader and love it but you should know that there are no inserts on the FW’s. If you want straps you have to use the NSI pads with inserts which work quite well if you attach them right. Liked the Evo too but the Vader is better fit for me.
