Re: Eleveight kites

What did you prefer about the Rebel? I ultimately decided to go with the Rebel because of the tricks it enabled me to pull off...nothing more, nothing less. I always try and evaluate a kite by simply going out and attempting as many tricks as possible and let this be the basis for how much I like i...

Re: 2018 North Evo Vs 2017

Great review !! I never rode the 2017 Evo so have no basis for comparison but I will say that I love the 18 model. I owned the 2014 which I also loved (except the bar pressure) but did not really like the 2016 Evo (alot of high end but it felt like the low end was stripped out). The new Evo to me fe...

Re: Eleveight RS review

Yes, I had posted a review of the RS awhile back and love the kite. For me, nothing beats a North Rebel but I have to say that the RS is a close second. The range on those kites is insane. The only thing I would mention is that they can improve the bar a bit. The depower strap is kind of weird but I...

Re: Anyone try the LiP Sunglasses (is Zeiss worth the extra $) ?

Polarized is good for fishing and cutting glare, avoiding shoals in boats... Sometimes too good, though - while kiting you need to see the surface of the water accurately to judge wave/chop shape, spot landings etc. This can be harder with polarization. And to me it's a stretch to go for perfection...

The ocean will give you stronger winds and better waves when you sacrifice more expensive glasses. Definitely worth it for you and all of your friends will thank you.
Yes, given the number of glasses, hats, and other stuff I've "gifted" we should have a solid year of 20Kts days ahead.

Anyone try the LiP Sunglasses (is Zeiss worth the extra $) ?

Greetings all, I'm not digging Sea Specs and am looking to switch. Have any of you ever used the LiP glasses and if so which model (Typhoon or Surge)? The only difference between the two is that the Typhoon has "ZEISS" polarization but they are $119 more (Surge = $99 and Typhoon = $218). What do you...

Impact vest for the family jewels

When crashing I try and land on my ass but on a few occasions I have noticed that the groin can take a pretty hard hit as well. I wear 1 or 2mil neoprene shorts under my board shorts for protection but was wondering if anyone knows of a type of cup or impact vest for the family jewels that would wor...

Re: Ultimate Kiteloops Episodes

Hey, Toby! Thanks for sharing! Yeah, the series is now complete. I had a lot of questions on powered loops topic and some teaching experience as well. I had a feeling, that classical approach to teaching powered loops is not really good, so I tried to compose a new type of progression in the 3rd ep...
