Re: List of highest boosting kites on the market

Give Jacobsen a Drifter in 45 knots and he'll boost 25+ too

Re: Switch Bag Any Good?

I can fit my Helium 18m in standard size bag, so 2 Solos in expanded bag should be no problem at all.

Bag is fine. Some people don't like the small pocket, but IMO it's big enough for some tools and a drink. Has a separate bar pocket, pump straps, board straps, repair kit. And it won't break on you.

Re: all kite reviews are garbage. What really matters.

There is one company that is honest about their product. There you'll find total area, projected area, AR, so you know that their 12 m kite is actually 12.5. Unfortunately, weight is conspicuously absent from this data sheet, so when they say "new generation" lineup weights 20% less you have to tak...

Re: Ozone releases R1V3...does this crap ever end?!

It also mean you can pick up an R1V2 at a big discount and have an amazing kite! I don't think so, they are made on demand if you want a Ozone race kite you have to wait 28 days. I meant second hand. Nah, foilkite prices are still held artificially high in the 2nd hand market. Won't last for much l...

Re: How does your bar handle center line Twists?

Sorry what is the point about sheeting and sharp turning? This is not at all affected by the swivel system. If you're hooked in it's not swivelling at all, except if you're doing a rotation. There is no difference in resistance to sheeting in or out that on any other bar system. It's an effect of t...

Re: How does your bar handle center line Twists?

In the short time I've had the North Click bar I can easily say this is by some distance the best centre line system. It doesn't auto-untwist - it never twists in the first place as the chicken loop itself simply rotates below the far, and the centre lines don't twist. The bearings are ope n so eas...

Re: Safety Alert: Cabrinha 2017 Power Bracket Seat Replacement

Are Cab bars overly problematic or do other companies just not do recalls/safety bulletins? This is a serious question, and I'm not trying to start a flame war with Cab. I just really would like to know? I've had a couple Cab bars in the past. 2014 was total trash and the 2015 was fine, but did hav...

Re: How does your bar handle center line Twists?

I'm done with atb swivels. If they work, it's for a limited time. Then you have to rince and lube them all over again. They also don't work that well anymore when you have a slight length difference between the two front lines. My Switch swivel worked pretty well for a limited time, but I don't both...

Re: Let’s Make Kitesurfing Safer… There is an Easy and Effective Way!

Good write up. But it completely misses the root cause of most server accidents! That is a fundamental lack of understanding of weather and wind conditions. Kite selection is key. you cannot select the appropriate kites without in good understand of weather patterns and how that affects the wind. T...
