Help with stylie boosted very late backroll

There's a cool move that Jessie Richman does where he boosts and after the apex on the way down he throws a quick front or back roll. (You can see this move early in the video where he jumps over the Squamish spit. Anyone out there got tips for nailing this trick smoothly and without the mule kick? ...

Re: '15 '16 North Evo vs Core XR3 or XR4

The XR4 is sweet. I've ridden both at the school up here and it feels like the xr4 boosts bigger. Dont know about unhooked though as I didnt have a chance to try it on the Core. Evo 10m is a nice kite though.

Why do you associate or not with a certain brand?

I ride a mixed brand quiver consisting of 7 kites from 4 different companies and I am curious why in kiting in seems a large proportion of people associate themselves with a particular brand? If you are not a shop owner or you get wholesale discounts what's is the value of being solely dedicated to ...

Re: Switch Legacy 10m review

Ok. Vegas is a great kite (I have an old one and havent flown one newer than 2012), for me the legacy feels a bit more crisp and direct feeling while turning slower which I like for wakestyle. Plus the upper end is better. That said the North bar is definitely nicer and cleaner than the Switch contr...

Re: Switch Legacy 10m review

I have naish and north kites too but I like my Legacy better than my parks, vegas or old rebels. $600 for a new that is durable and flys great is fantastic.

Bring a 17m to Maui in January?

I will be headed to Maui the last two weeks of January and was wondering if I need to bring my 17 strutless for twintip riding? I was planning on bringing just 10 and 14 c-kites.

Re: Switch Legacy 10m review

Hi Scheme,

I had a great kiteloop session on the 10 today and I'm posting to tell you that the kite loops quickly and with a lot of power. So yes it loops fine. Go big!
