Re: Naish Hover or SS hoverglide

I have a hover glide and a few friends have ridden it and said it's really easy to ride. If you care about weight at all I wouldn't buy it because it's really heavy, it's hard to even carry while attached to the board. I'm sure it would be more fun to ride than the naish one though, which uses the s...

Why offset it? Just curious. I bought a kite that had an offset repair like this and thought it was a mistake.

Re: Kite choice for foil noob

I think initially the chaos would be a bit difficult, because you will probably end up spending some time fully sheeted out trying to dump power thinking "holy shit im going to die if i don't slow down". Once you can ride with more control it's not as big of a deal, but yeah I wouldn't wan...

Re: need quiver tips

A 10m kite will pull exactly as hard as any other 10m kite, the design will just change how it is flown in order to get the most out of it. If I remember correctly when I demoed a Dice, it flies a bit more like a C kite so you have to keep it moving to make sure you don't just edge it out of the pow...

Re: need quiver tips

What's the Fly, a 15m? 15-10-7 could work fine. There might be a small gap at the high-end of your 15m but it depends on your local conditions, whether you get those 15-18 knot days as much as 17-18+ and some 10-13 kt days

Re: Is 16m too much for me?

Being light weight myself I wouldn't recommend anything over 12 unless it is light wind specific. If you really want to pinch every last knot then get a foil or there are some great light wind specific LEIs now. The 16 you mention is meant for heavy riders in 15+ knots it seems. This means the kite...

Re: Question for Best TS owners

Just FYI your terminology is a bit off when referring to the safety system. The word you're looking for is just the safety line or the leash line - "mini 5th" specifically means that it flags to both front lines. Best kites do not use mini 5th at all any more, it's all single-line flagging.

Re: so i tried kitesurfing, seems dangerous.

Once you get the hang of it, kiteboarding is probably one of the safest "extreme" sports you can do. It's really only as dangerous as the conditions you try to ride in and how experienced you are. If you always ride in <20 knots of wind, the car ride to the beach is more dangerous than the...

Re: Which boots fit liquid force boards?

I use ronix boots on mine and they fit perfect. Board is from 2012 dunno if they've moved the inserts ever so slightly since then

Re: New kitesurfer - need help buying my first kite

The first thing to understand is that there is no "best kite for my weight". Your weight only affects which windranges you can fly different sized kites in, and as a beginner you want to get the biggest kite first in order to kite in the weakest/safest winds that you regularly get. General...
