Re: 2017 Ride Engine vs Dakine C1

Does the RE get bigger after use? I've heard the C1 becoms a bit larger after a few sessions due to the memory foam moulding to ones shape. My waist is 34 ins ht 5ft 9ins I've got the medium 2017 RE with the fixed bar. For the first few sessions with the harness I felt the foam on the sides was mak...

Re: My Full 2017 North Kiteboarding Kites Review - Jeremie Tronet

Great kites and excellent overview of each kites uses. However IMO still too many kites to specialized and to much overlap in the North portfolio. I change my kites every 1 to 2 years I have bought Rebels in the past but this year with the choice of Dice, Evo & Rebels I was confused and bought anoth...

Ride Engine Hex Core 2017 medium harness review

Me - 34 inch (86cm) waist 5ft 9ins (175cm) tall. Bad lower back normally aches after a 2 hr kite session. So took out a second mortgage on my house and bought the Hex core 2017 medium harness. Tried the small in the shop but felt there was not enough coverage of my lower back so got the medium. This...

Re: Review F-one Bandit 9m (10th edition)

Dave, I went from V8 to V10 and noticed a big improvement in the way the kite performed in terms of reducing the sideways pull when jumping. V10 sends you vertical & has better hang time and upwind ability. Also V10 feels more solid and does not flutter as did V8. Has the squarer tips on the V10 mad...

Re: Favourite Foot Straps & Pads Combination

I have got the Sneaker SRS ratchet foot straps on my Sinn Ronson and together with the pads I think they are brilliant. My foot size is a 9UK (43 - 44) and I wear T3 Atan boots. For the first time ever I have the correct foot pressure due to the incredible micro click adjustments, which means a cons...

Re: WMFG Pump 2.0T

I'm already really satisfied with the previous version WMFG pump (except for the stiff hose which is kinda annoying). This new version has some great improvements though! Just pumped up my kites with the new pump. The new flexible hose was great I didn’t need to pre-twist it, no pop off’s and the s...

Harnesses – new tightening system?

Year after year the harness manufacturers bring us their latest ergonomically designed miracles but with the same old inefficient strap and buckle system. Half the ergonomic benefits are lost because we can’t micro tighten the harness when sailing. In my opinion SP Boarding has transformed foot stra...

Re: Shinn Ronson review

Thanks for the info Ian, very interesting. By coincidence I also have Atan 3mm boots* (round toe) which look identical to yours but I think are size 10-1/2 (45) or 11 (46), and I just can not get them into the straps properly. :-( Are you on the UK south coast? I'm in Chichester. * On the back of t...

Re: Shinn Ronson review

John - my feet are size 9 uk(43 EU) understand the straps are good for sizes 7 (41.5) to 11 (46). Boots are Atan Mistral 3mm not split toe. I am delighted with mine as I said I wish waist harnesses had the same system.

Re: Shinn Ronson test

I really like the (ratchet) Sneaker SRS-1 with bare feet but when it got cold earlier this month and I had to wear 3mm wetsuit boots I just could not get my feet into them properly (I tried for 5 sessions). I have EU 45, UK 10-1/2 size feet. I now have the Apex straps because I can (just) get my fe...
