Re: Blade Kites

Thanks, no specific questions really, I think you'd described it fairly well.

My interest was only really peaked because the 2018 model is currently £400 less than the equivalent North. I guess my best bet would be to try it out, difficult where I live though!

Thanks for the info though.

Blade Kites

Anyone got any experience with Blades?

I'm looking for a new kite (I'm always kind of looking for a new kite) and these seem well priced, I don't see much discussion around them which is either good or bad I suppose!

Re: Anton's tips on surviving a squall.

I think the advice about keeping the kite low is good for that as well, it's all situational though I guess, if you're out at sea with space, your kite is low and a massive gust hits you will (hopefully) be able to eject....if the kite is high you would get lofted. Nothing covers all possible eventu...

Re: Anton's tips on surviving a squall.

Did he not mention to trim the center lines or did I just miss it? (For me lowering the kite to the edge of the window makes sense but in very overpowered conditions I would also trim the center lines) Yeah, probably goes without saying though I'd imagine. If you're overpowered that's going to happ...

First flatwater experience!

I was out the other day in my "second" home spot, it's a u shaped beach set 90 degrees to the angle of my primary beach and has a harbour off to the side. I'd never thought of kiting in the harbour but last weekend the wind was weird and there was a rock hazard downwind of me making me uncomfortable...

Anton's tips on surviving a squall.

Found this today (apologies if it's already been posted)

I love Anton's advice, his edging / jumping vids are quality.

Re: 2019 Duotone Click Bar

100% agree. After everything that Duotone put in to their kites and bars to make them one of the top selling brands, they absolutely over look the quality of their lines. One of the worst on the market and has been for a while now. I can't understand why Duotone hasn't fixed this issue because real...

The Click Bar stands strong as the only bar on the market that trims via the back line, not the front.
Psssst ... have a word with Ocean Rideo about the above claim.
I reckon that marketing shpeil was written before OR stol.....borro....came out with their own version.

Re: New Quick Release System?

I could do with one of those but with a magnet so strong it drags the little shit back from a mile down the beach :lol:

Re: Harness Position

I'm pretty sure this is what most people do, but at some point I started keeping it slightly looser (just a bit, still fairly tight overall) so that it's easier to move around. Basically, the harness WILL move up at some point, whether you fall, are body dragging, or just have a lot of power when t...
