Re: Is Wakestyle dead?

I'll chime in. I've had to back off wakestyle and move to airstyle tricks because I injured my shoulder last fall (rotator cuff). So now I'm all about progressing with board offs, etc which was unthinkable pre-injury. Instead of a kite that's great for load pop I now like to ride kites that go huge ...

I always check on my fellow kiters if they've been down for over a minute. Whether it's retrieving their board or dragging them in I help out and so do...

Is Wakestyle dead?

Is there a quick method to convert a low v bar to a high v?

As i've been riding Naish bars for years but recently purchased a North kite I was wondering if there is a quick and easy way to convert a low-v bar to a high-v bar without needing to splice new lines?

The new South Multi kite is awesome! It’s got twenty struts and is so heavy that it doesn’t fly even in the strongest of winds.

Re: New TT - Regular Raptor/ Naish / North?

Will North Mono fly right with low v bar?

Will the North Mono fly correctly with a Naish or other “low v” bar? Does high or low v make a difference?
