Re: Eleveight RS: My Review

If you tell me I can buy a 10m that flies at 6 knots, my only (two-fold) question to you is, “so what is it made of and how fragile is the material?” We always talk about stability vs. agility but equally important is performance vs. durability. But I’m always open to having my mind blown on the wa...

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

Over 20 knots self launch and self land can be sketchy. On self launch a bit of sand on the leeward wingtip can help but at the end of the day the most important thing is to make sure that there's nobody/nothing downwind within two kite line lengths in case everything goes tits up and you have to fl...

Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

all it needs is for a fold to be compressed for a weak spot to be created. I could be taking your statement in the wrong way, but if you suggest a crease created by a fold is a potential weak spot,.......Not on any LE I have ever seen. I even have a 2013 Best kahoona that I got off of Ikitesurf (be...

I can see three struts being lighter and more nimble..

Re: Strapless board shape?

Thanks all for the responses, really insightful. Just to be clear the board in the photo isn’t mine, it’s just the same as the one I rented. And when I look at the various mainstream kitesurf boards, not many are this shape. I was conscious that the local Cape Verde strapless pros are riding boards...

Re: Ozone Enduro v2 ? are we there yet?

I'm 81kg/178lb and going 6/8/10/12. The 12 is the biggest I'll use on the TT and the 10 the biggest I'll use on the SB (for now). Local beach is open sea and a mixture of flat water/chop/small waves (5' max), side/side on/onshore. Can't be arsed if less than 12 knots or over 35 knots Stacks of wind ...

Re: Issue with Naish Kite leading edge, manufacturing defect ?

http://www.kiteforum.com/download/file.php?id=81072 From the picture it looks like there's been a point loaded impact (to the left of centre?) which has weakened the leading edge enough for the bladder to blow out and thereafter tear the leading edge following slightly offset weave (weft?) lines to...
