Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

As a kiter who loves to travel to spots around the world I’m really starting to think about the impact this has on the planet. For example, the amount of carbon produced to fly across the Atlantic is more than my hybrid electric car produces in a year of driving. This can be offset by purchasing ha...

Re: Attached-on Hydrofoil for TTs

Hydrofoils on a TT which would work in shallow water and bring the kiting threshold down a few knots would be interesting.

Re: Ride Engine Rib Jab

Suggestion: try a few different seat harness to see how you get on. I use an Ion Echo which suits my shape and doesn't make my previously fractured left side ribs and damaged lower back hurt. In fact, my back feels better after a good session than before! I've tried several seat harnesses and before...

Re: Ozone Zephyr V5 vs Switch Helium 3

I have a Helium 2 15.5 that I use for foiling. It's a very good kite. Everything from Switch is very good. I'm not sure it's worth going into a long review when there is one truly insurmountable difference between the Zephyr and the Helium. The Zephyr is more than double the price of the Helium. Ev...

I have flown the v4 not the v5 . Not sure how different the two models are.
If you would still like me to break it down for you .
Please contact me at felix@switchkites.com
Regards
Felix.
Appreciate the offer, but I know the V5 is a 're-design' so that's what to compare with. Thanks.

Rig something up to spin the water out of the board.
This ^^^ (a centrifuge) works far better than gravity.

Ozone Zephyr V5 vs Switch Helium 3

Ideally Zephyr (17m) vs Helium 3 16m.

Has anyone flown both these kites and if so how did they compare?

- On TT, SB, or Foil
- Bar width and line lengths
- Bar pressure
- Low end
- Top end
- Gusts
- Position in window
- Ease of relaunch
- Quality of construction
- Weight
- Any quirks
- etc ...
