Re: Light Years Ahead - The Airush Ultra V2

I have a 9m Ultra and kite at least 2 days per week in all types of conditions with it (8knots foiling lulls to 26knots TT mega-air sessions) and have yet to drop the kite. It is so ridiculously stable. If it lulls below 8 knots it would fall I think but we have excellent winds that are quite consis...

Re: Surf Foils for Kiteboarding?

I have a takuma v100 and a LF happy foil. I hate the surf foil for kiting, slow and doesn't "take off" or build apparent wind at all...it's torturous. Great for actual surfing though.

Re: Deal on Airush ultra vs. Naish Boxer

I have put the Ultra through the ringer with lots of use now as I kite very frequently and the 9m ultra is the perfect kite for everything I do: foil (8-16kt) -> surf (12-20) -> TT (15+). It is a fantastic kite and very high-quality/durable as I've rolled it, crash/safety landed on beach in high win...

Re: skimboard choice

Just spent a week in Hatteras with the family and could only fit my 9m ultra and a skim. Great time in 15-20knots and chest to head high waves almost every day. Super difficult doing bottom turns on the bigger sets but a great challenge and small package for transport. You can do shove-its on the fa...

Re: The Ultimate Wetsuit !?

Rip curl flashbomb suits are amazing but expensive. I surf and kite in my 3/2 about 2-3x per week all year and no damage for past three years. If you add a 2mm neo hoody you can use a 3/2 all year for kiting down to 35*F water (but not surfing obviously).

Re: skimboard choice

Skim is amazing for super shallow water but for actual waves you want a surfboard.

My idea board is the Nobile Infinity Split Foil, great for travel, foiling, and decent surf

Re: Directional thoughts

You already have a 5'4" surfboard which is a great size. Bigger board won't really be any better.

If you want to have fun kiting in 11-13mph you need to learn to hydrofoil, which you should do ASAP!

Re: old fart round the world tour

I travel with a foil everywhere, you can just drill holes in your TT and put grip on top and mount it whenever and have a dual use board. Also, foils break down into very small package so no worry about bulky.
Or get one of the convertible boards by nobile

Re: Wash or not wash your kites

Ive been kiting for 17 years and never washed a kite or even heard of someone doing it. I guess if a bird pooped on it or you legitimately rolled it in mud you should rinse it. The only thing I am dogmatic about is to never store a kite more than a few days in the bag wet because I assume it would m...

Re: Expanding my quiver with Fuels

Since you are "more into freestyle and jumps": DO NOT GET A QUIVER OF FUELS.
