RRD Religion MK8 experience

Hi all, I´m looking for a new 9/10 m² wave kite (to replace my old Reo V3 10 m²). It has to fit to my 7 m² Reo V4 and should fly very stable in low winds (for foiling). I´m really interested in the 9 m² Religion MK8. My most urgent question to you Religion experienced: How strong is the "grunt" of t...

Re: Strutless Kites Cloud vs. Gong

I´ve had the Cloud C1 in 10 & 17 m² and the Storm Voyager V2 in 9 m² (on strapless surfboard). My learning: Strutless kites lack depower! Massive low end, but very little depower. Didn´t like any of them. The windrange was very narrow for me. Maybe the later models have increased in depower capabili...

Very good advice by the TO :thumb:

Re: German online shops, info plz !

If you can accept potentially longish / unpredictable shipping periods and sluggish responsiveness from shop for lowest prices: You-Love-It / Lonasport (same owner now)
If you want perfect overall service, instant responsiveness and 100 % reliability for maybe slighly higher prices: Surfpirates

Re: Surf wax recommendations

If you´re honest, pads outperform wax in each and every aspect. But it´s not "original surf style" :nono: :naughty: I´ve tried many different waxes and I´m riding in cool/cold water exclusively (= easier for wax to stay in place). Wax is 20th century technology, let´s face it. And surfing is ultra-c...

Re: Ozone Reo 5m what a mess!!!

Exactly my observation. I have the 5/7 V4 and had the 5/7/10 V3. The 7 V4 is a dream :heartface: But the 5 V4 is useless for me. Either too much power or no power delivery, hardly anything in between. Sold the 5 quickly after some tries. Unfortunately I had sold the 5 V3 before I received the V4. St...

Re: You love it - SUP and kite shop in Dusseldorf - Do not buy!

I live near this shop and have been in the shop quite some times now. It is a real shop (no fraud / fake). However, the whole admin is rather chaotic (partly based on paper notes which are flying around the counter...) and the team seems to be overloaded with online orders. They´ve installed additio...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

Update on the 9 m² SST: I´ve flown it exactly 3 times. Totally useless for waveriding from my point of view! This sluggish monster generates way too much power / pull for me. Veeeery slow, veeeeeeeeeery much pull. Nice drift, though... Sold it again, staying with the 10 m Reo V3. Still searching for...

Re: High Lift Wings like Moses 633 Onda: who is it for?

As it is with current fuse, my 633 on a 105cm carbon mast already floats horizontally for 15-30 seconds when I fall off. I often need to push it down to maneuver the board... As a total foil beginner (2 sessions on my Moses 633 / Groove Skate) I can acknowledge that. The floating wing makes straple...

Re: Corrosion on Aluminium parts (Moses fuselage)

Electrical isolation of the screws isn´t sufficient in this case. Even if you´d isolate the screw heads by e.g. plastic washers, there´s still the strong contact between the conical part of the mast (bare carbon) and the fuselage (the tuttle connection). With the µm-thin Al2O3-layer as the only isol...
