Board for Kickers and Sliders

I am looking for a board as I begin to hit some kickers and sliders. How should this boards size compare to the twin tip I usually use? Bigger, smaller, same size? I found a good deal on a 133 cabrinha custom and I generally ride a 132 slingshot misfit. I weigh 145 lbs (65 kg).

Re: Light Weight Rider 10m vs 12m or other “Big” Kite

so I am wondering this, if wind is low, 10/11 knots, is there any kite (besides for a giant foil or racing kite) that you can actually jump with? I would guess that the only way you could jump is if you build up speed and then a 15 knot gust comes along. In constant 11 knot wind, even if you build u...

Re: Light Weight Rider 10m vs 12m or other “Big” Kite

Mitaka, youre the man. That's the exact information I'm looking for. A couple more questions for you. What type of surfboard/size are you on when you are riding in 11 knots with the 10m? What is the water doing under you when you go upwind at 11 knots? How about wind direction? I am amazed that you ...

Light Weight Rider 10m vs 12m or other “Big” Kite

I am looking for a “big” kite that I can ride in sub 15 knots with a twin tip and have fun. Fun to me is simply being able to get off the water, do some fun transitions and ride in waves. Leaning towards a 3 strut, medium-high aspect kite. Something like the slingshot rally, blade trigger, naish rid...

Travel Bag for 62 inch (158 cm) Kitesurf Board

I have recently purchased the 5'2" slingshot trex kitesurf board and now I am looking for a good travel bag for it. It seems all bags are either too big or too small. Any suggestions? I am open to a full size travel bag that I can also put kites/gear in or a nice custom fitting bag that will provide...

Re: RPM vs C4

RPM is a good all around kite but the thing I don't like is that it doesn't have the best jumping ability. So if this is important to you, then I would look elsewhere.

The catalyst has much better jumping ability and is good all around.

I have not ridden the C4 but from what I hear, it boosts sick!

Re: Cuyo Island Phillipines info help

Does anyone know about the quality of wind in cuyo town? I am debating between taking a 6m RPM or 7m fuel for my small kite. If the wind is smooth, I'll go with the fuel. If it is gusty, I'll go with the RPM. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
