Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

Bro...1) calm down, I am a Flysurfer fanboy through and through. 2) It's undeniable that the R1V2 was along before the Sonic Race and that it's a winning kite. I didn't say the Sonic Race was built off it, in fact I made a careful point to make sure it was clear that's NOT what I was saying. 3) I kn...

This is great news. Let's just hope Neil Pryde doesn't get involved...
Why do you say that? Have you heard any of the recent feedback about the Foil/Board combo being used for the FR:X project? It's very fast and very stable.

Re: Kitefoiling at the 2024 Olympic games

In 2010 an Americas Cup boat was flying a kite at the top of its mast in the Hauraki Gulf, NZ The Americas cup rules state that an AC boat must be "a yacht or vessel propelled by sails only" Since a kite was not a sail, the use of a kite was not permitted by World Sailing. Much the same as when the...

Re: Ozone and Flysurfer fanboys, tell me why...

The R1V2 was the best kite on the market for about 18 months before the Flysurfer Race got out there and started turning heads. That's not to say it's only good because it built upon the R1V2, I have no reason to suspect it did, but Ozone did get to the podium before Flysurfer. If you compare the So...

His issue was when people stopped racing on LEI kites and saw his revenues drop.

Re: Kiteboarding is officially sailing, gets its own medal for Paris 2024

Will the official sailing body's now help us/fund us to keep kitesail :roll: spots open? I think that's the question, what commitment will US Sailing make to domestically advance the sport. They're pretty tight with StFYC on the left coast, and there are a couple of kiters up in the Newport, RI are...

Re: Kiteboarding is officially sailing, gets its own medal for Paris 2024

I'm pretty suspicious about kiteboarding in the olympics. I don't know the details as well as longwhitecloud and honestly to me kiteboarding is sailing. For me the problem is the olympics is more about politics and less about the the sport itself. Sailing in particular is very political and how wel...
