Re: Wave riding styles? Kite powered vs wave powered

When I ride waves with my kite my style is dictated by the conditions. If the waves are smaller,faster and with no push than I use the power of the kite more working it to get up and down the face and line.

Re: Rippen high speed on waves

On smaller days when the waves are fast and closing out I love to speed slash waves. Its like tow in surfing except you control the tow and never have to ditch the bar. It outs a big ol smile on my face :D

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

I find it very interesting that none of the kite magazines include Switch in their kite review sections. It is almost like if you don't play the game like the other company's you don't get any recognition. But it doesnt matter. It is so easy to demo one that Switch doesnt need a kite magazine to pus...

Re: Wakestyle: Bridle wraps are pissing me off on the 2014 P

Low kite wake style trick=C Kite. Any other type of kite and your wasting your time. Love the feel of a torch but mine always tore up after 1 season. Try a Combat XXX. Half the price twice the kite :D

Re: Best kite for unhooked tricks between 8 and 12 knots?

Been doing alot of unhooked light wind surfing with my switch nitro 14m V2 on my LF kite fish. Not only a session saver but a super good time in small waves. The nitro surfs good unhooked. For where I live it is a must have in my quiver.

Re: Switch MJ Comp Twintip Review

Got a chance to try the board fin less in a slick and it was amazing. Got to imagine that it would be even better with boots!
