Re: What does true mean for you?

Truly experienced kiteboarders dont care about brand. Especially brands that design their gear just around their gear. Just want good quality customisable gear. I use different brand model bar, with different brand lines on different brand kites. Whatever works best for my riding style. I agree. If...

Re: What's the problem ?

How could she possible get hurt badly from that? It just keeps the line to the inside or the outside of your bar. If it breaks, that line will just get a few centimeters longer at one side. Which should be easily be compensated by holding your bar skewed. Besides, I don't see how you possibly could...

Re: What does true mean for you?

Haha. This thread has gotten very weird. Boards and More started using the claim "True Kiteboarding" in 2010/2011 Those who claim it's 'marketing bullshit' aren't necessarily wrong, but they're not necessarily right. I actually credit the brand claim "True" as more or less creating the brand you've...

Re: What does true mean for you?

Build quality, Core and Crazyfly. With Ocean Rodeo, Switch, Airush for example close behind. Peformance mostly Ozones, though the new Catalyst really sucks. And they do it without having to fix design issues. North is in the same league as Naish, SS, Cab for me, and I don't consider those the best....

Re: What does true mean for you?

As mentioned, the lines are crap, they still use sleeves, some bar parts are very prone to breaking, bridle lines are crap, and stitching on the kites -although neatly done- is all over the place in areas that shouldn't be weakened. And some of the contruction details are pretty mediocre too, mostl...

Re: Foil Kite tuning tips

Thanks for explanation. I own speed 4 Lotus, specification say PA is changed from 70 to 85%. Thats teorically.

A friend owns Psycho 4. You can adjust profile and flying characteristics by opening and closing an internal zipper that affects internal inflation pressure.

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

I wouldn't talk that dismissively about greatest passion of my life be it foils and/or LEIs. It is sarcasm, Grigorib. Another point of view, to think out of the box about our "passions". A bar is nothing else but a stick with a hole in the middle. Or you can call it like Pete Cabrinha, coming from ...

Re: Tube vs Softkite - an epic battle?

The note written by Groesel is correct, but has its flats. One of them is the express intentionality to say that the singleskin profile of an inflatable kite generates more lift and less drag than (higher L/D ratio) than a double skin soft kite. But this is measured at angle of attack of 20 degrees!...
