Apple Watch Series 2...

I am thinking of getting the new one and I am wondering if anyone has gotten a chance to use it while kiting? I can see a lot of potential for tracking sessions, airtime, and fitness benefits while kiting. If anyone has an aptitude for coding, it would seem like a pretty good niche to get an app out...

Re: All new Switch Element 5

I have played with the settings on mine. It makes a big difference if you put the kite on the "Pivot" knot. If you fully pull hard on a steering line, it still keeps some power through the turn, but it definitely pivots a lot more. It is still not a gutless, no-power, turn in its own radius, pivot t...

Switch Element5 11m first impressions...

Just got a quick couple of sessions in on the new 11m. I also pulled a brand new controller3 out of the bag and used that as well (after double checking the calibration of course). I set it up on the 20m lines only (removed the extensions) and flew the first session with it on the more powerful sixt...

Re: Switch Kiteboarding Launches New Innovative Spider Bridl

I was fortunate to be present when some of the testing of the Nitro5 was happening. I am still just an average-ability rider, and it is really cool when you are handed a one-off prototype, and spend a couple of hours riding and evaluating changes. I am putting the obligatory caveat here that I am no...

Re: Switch Nitro review?

Just got out on my 14m nitro4 the other day. Coming off a nitro3. So smooth! Love the new slippery material. The new bridle seems to keep things nice and tidy even during all types of loops. Great job once again! Keep the stoke! Aloha.

Re: Kauai Oct/Nov 2015

I just got back from a few days on Kauai. Rode for a short time near tunnels and it was awesome. Andre hooked me up with a board and i had a fun session. If only i hadnt spent 5 hours hiking immediately before that! Can't wait to go back over and do it some more.

Re: Anyone else riding their motorcycle to go kiting?

I am fortunate to live just a few minutes from Mokuleia Beach here on Oahu. I just strap my board and harness to the box on my KLR and wear my kite/bar pack. All the tuners get jealous of my downforce! Not really. Parking is never an issue. Just have to watch for pedestrians -- all to easy to introd...

Re: Kite Boarding / Surfing in Oahu, HI

If David (white dude with curly hair) is still working at Windward Watersports, he is someone to seek out. He taught me and is a great teacher. He'll work at your pace and is very no-nonsense. Agree with the above. Make sure the wind is ripping for a lesson. Many of the guys teaching are out there o...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

... and if you designing the kite without the lift-creating wing profile you should warn the potential customers about the consequences, like crappy low end, poor performance for riders heavier than 90kg, lousy performance in the choppy water and very slow turning speed. Wow. Just... wow. I have be...
