Re: Any Takoon Icon 2017 reviews?

Hi, I don't speak very well Italian, but I think that most of arguments are explain in this video : https://vimeo.com/141009531 I'm also riding with this board (Icon flaxbiotek version) since mid-2015. I'm riding strapless since 2011, freestyle way because there is not much wave in mediterannean sea...

Re: Gruissan/Leucate end of march

Yes, there are some kites on their way to tunisia, not all kite has been saved ;-) I personnaly have to release my kite on this spot (death loop after failed trick), it has disappeared on the horizon but I found a fisherman (it was summer, more chance to found a boat on the coast). I don't know how ...

Re: Gruissan/Leucate end of march

Hi Bernie, I can imagine that you get amazing flat water conditions, but do you not have lots of problems due to the conditions? Some rules to follow : do not ride alone and release your kite if situation go wrong (deathloop, broken line,...).Do not obstinate to self rescue because wind push you ver...

Re: Gruissan/Leucate end of march

Thanks for all the info. Honestly, doesn't sound that great for kiting, but you take what you got. I agree with you but I can tell you that if you can ride on Tramontana on these spots, you can ride easily anywhere over the world :lol: Tramotana is gusty but blows almost everyday , check this profi...

Re: Gruissan/Leucate end of march

Hi, I'm riding in gruissan and some spots around. You can choose between very different spots in a small area : - Vieille Nouvelle, great landscape, no man's land except kitesurfers. Quite difficult to go there (road can be flooded , you have to use dirt roads and drive on the beach for 4 kms...). O...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Looks super clean. [...] Having that smaller opening on the ring makes it much harder/ impossible for the ring to rotate around and get levered against the body of the carabiner body and gate at the same time unclipping itself. Thanks :-) You are rigth about rings, I have switched them. Any issues ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Hi RZBO, I used a wichard like yours some years back. Problem I had with it was that it could get easily knocked and released accidentally. The travel is so short. Hi TomW, I agree with you, maybe replacing the halyard by a bungee (with correct elasticity) might avoid accidental release? With this ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Hi, Here is my contribution : original bar is an Takoon Onyx (or BWS is the same). Chicken loop was removed and replaced by a wichard. IMO, this configuration is better because it is easier to release the wichard (by pushing the PVC ring) even if lines are not stretched (preventive action). PVC ring...
