Re: Best one peice to wear under drysuit ?

I really like the Ocean rodeo zip free fleece - though I don't have a lot of things to compare it with. It wicks sweat so well. I have tried it with wicking garments underneath but found they don't wick well enough so I have to layer on top when it gets cold (though I find I'm good down to about 7c ...

Re: Liquid Force P1 - taking on the Edge and XR5?

I had a Blade trigger (v9 2017) and it is the same Max Flow valve. I was under the impression though that the Wow was a particularly skinny leading edge. I didn't think the trigger had a particularly small diameter Leading edge (though I haven't had an opportunity to sit one next to the other). It d...

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

The ones that don't look like a snorkel (e.g. official gopro) fold and hook over the harness hook when not in use a lot easier. You can also use them as a tripod stand if you want to film stuff from a stationary point.

Re: Do you disassemble your foilboard after each use?

Yes. Absolutely. I disassemble and clean my foil and all parts after each use. I also reapply tefgel at regular weekly intervals as per the manufacturers guidelines. And you won't find me expressing any other sentiment on a forum that a manufacturer might or might not frequent just in case I ever ne...

Re: Are forecasts reliable for Daklha?

Based on solely one weeks worth of experience (last week) so take it with a pinch of scepticism - not really. The best you can get is a feel for which kit to take with you. GFS (at a massive 22km radius) seems to get updated fairly regularly (maybe every 6 hours) but the other forecasts seemed to be...

Re: Which bar should I use with the BEST TS V7?

The best TS will use a low V, single line release, all equal length line bar. Thats most bars on the market currently. The ones to avoid include (but not necessarily limited to) - North (excluding click bar), F-one, Core, old Ocean Rodeo. I happen to like the Best bar. I like the stretchy depower ro...

Re: Review Duotone Dice 9m

Source: http://www.wetestkites.com/2018/08/28/duotone-dice-2019-9m/ Another -less impressive- statements is the “2 cm longer pig tail at the hard setting for making it the perfect set up for Freestyle/Wakestyle moves, offering massive slack”. How about we just depower our kite 2 cm? Same effect. So...

Re: A whole lot of looping.....and some hangtime.

:thumb:

Nice edit. Looks a nice spot.

I've seen a couple of other people looping edges but I think the shape makes them less popular as they presumably don't pull so much through the turn.

Re: The Perfect Kite Event - how would it look like?

I always thought that changing (and publishing) the points scoring based on the conditions could be fun. e.g. if its a choppy bay - boost the points scored by people doing Jesus walks or darkslides. If its butter flat water - then boost the points for massive air. For racing though - I always though...

Re: My Xensr doesn't work

- Have you noticed any moisture leaking out (e.g. when left standing on the side)? - Does it get really hot when plugged in to charge and left plugged in for a while? - Do you see any evidence of corrosion around the edges of the charging terminals? Answer yes to any of those questions and its likel...
