Re: New Kite Time: Cabrinha Contra vs. Naish Pivot vs. Liquid Force Solo

I agree with rogue. Very different kites. For light wind, I like the Contra. It boosts well, is super stable and predictable. It performs well in gusty conditions. My experience with the Solo in gusty conditions wasn't great. It doesn't have enough structure (rigidity) to handle gusts well. Your ins...

Re: how much space to launch 15m Pansh A15

Hey, opie. I just went through the same process with my new Pansh Aurora 15 (first foil kite). I'd suggest taking your A15 out to a field or other open area, away from other people, just to get used to launching and landing it. You'll have more confidence when you get ready to ride with it at Sherma...

Re: kitesurf in Turks and Caicos in May

Naty, your kite sizes will probably be too small. Although there are no certainties in life (!), you would be better with a 11-12m and your friend would be better with a 14-17m. TCI usually has very consistent, but lighter east trade winds. Best kiting is Long Bay, and you can do downwinders on the ...

Re: Kitebar suggestions for air style

If someone knows of a method of adding a reliable hook above the CL without using North (or Core) parts, I am interested. I considered the windsurf-loop modification for my bar, but couldn't figure out a way of making it work (and still flag the kite with the quick release when hooked to the mini-lo...

Re: Kitebar suggestions for air style

Following up on the safety discussion, there is a significant difference between Downunder's buddy's bar and the North parts bar that Toby has described. With North quick release/Iron Heart parts (even if you add them to a non-North bar with a micro-loop kit), your kite will flag out with the CL qui...

Re: Bit of help needed to choose first kite

Is there much variation in kites between what size would best suit a rider or if 12m is best for my weight and local conditions in the Catalyst that would likely be true for any manufacturer? Hey, Rob. Generally, you'll find that the size of a kite is fairly consistent across manufacturers. There i...

Re: Horrible experience from H2O-sports UK

If i see "free delivery" I would only assume that applies to that country not to international shipping. Really? I dunno if I agree. But if a company operates in the online marketplace and sometimes ships internationally, then that company would do well to qualify "free delivery" very explicitly if...
