Re: Drysuits circa 2018

go Soul. Can't go wrong.. I got mine on sale for $450 3 years ago.. and still using it after 200 sessions..
It does start to develop slow leaks at the seams (easy fix with aquaseal).. so I think I'll change it for next season.
Gonna get another Soul for sure!

Re: Core Xr4 vs Xr5?

I tried 12m Xr4 and 5 in one session about a month ago... I'd say they are pretty much the same kite..
XR5 seemed a bit snappier, but that was probably due to it being new vs my old Xr4 with 60+ sessions on it..
Can't say anything bad about both kites.. the Core bar is a different story :-D

Re: Piq, Xensr or Woo?

You know the difference between a man and a boy? - Only their toys! :-) For 99.99% of people kites are recreational equipment. Unless you are a pro kite boarder, making money of it - they are TOYS. Same goes for Ferrari-es.. If you are not a pro racer or use it as a commute car - it's a TOY. WOO is ...

Re: Piq, Xensr or Woo?

i think its silly to buy something for $250 just for jumps measurements. i live in nerd valley and al the nerdlings i talk to think those devices are yesterdays news and apple and others are the future. it might have been state of the art a few years ago but now there are apps that do jumps and gps...

Re: Cabarete this season ?

I just got back from Cabarete on Saturday. Out of 10 day stay it was one decent/consistent 15-20kts day, 2 sort of ridable on TT days, a couple of ~9-10kts foiling days... The rest was rainy and unpredictable - if you rig fast you get 10-15minutes of riding in highly questionable conditions while st...

Re: Piq, Xensr or Woo?

Well, to be fair, I'm still waiting to read "how can a gadget improve your kiting?". Any gadget. The only proper 'gadget' is a camera, which can tell you a lot. Also, let's not forget our kiting buddies. One buddy with a camera is worth 100(0) sessions with a gadget. Have you all forgotten "an pict...

Re: Piq, Xensr or Woo?

While the standalone watch can work for jump height measurement in theory, on practice the task is way more complicated than in comparisons to "on the board" sensors. Basically, the non-military GPS will not give you desired precision and using accelerometers attached to your hands - that will give ...

Re: Piq, Xensr or Woo?

The watch just does so much more beyond measuring jumps, and it has GPS tracking. This comes from official Apple support page (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205000): "Apple Watch Series 2 and Apple Watch Series 3 shouldn't be used for scuba diving, water skiing, or other activities involving hi...

Re: Beastmount breakage, your opinions?

I have beastmount and it survived at least 15 sessions.. even one when the kite popped the strut after the tomahawking.. maybe I am lucky.. but I usually use it in "melow" conditions.. Never want anything on my lines when I am crazy powered... I also remember hearing someone complaining about one.. ...
