Re: Mast length and boosting

Anyone got a recommendation on great boosting kites? ive been riding Naish Trip kites foiling and have been nailing board offs on them, but they just don't seem to provide the hang I need to do spinning board offs. Ideally I'd like a tube kite I can ride in surf on a twintip with too.

Any reviews on the new Naish Boxer for twintip riding? How is the boosting? How is it unhooked? Looking maybe picking up a 14m for foiling and TT

Re: California seeks to Criminalize kite-boarding

Yes this looks like a poorly written law that could have detrimental impacts if enacted and enforced. Let’s all call the state senator listed above

Re: Marc Jacobs - Kitesurf365 Podcast

It seems to me that wakestyle has reached "peak spin" with the only innovative moves being those done on Tack flip variations (ie kiteloop double half cab). Maybe KOTA should be hooked in only or have two paths riders can go down with winners for both "Big Air" and "Big Air Freestyle" the latter whi...

Re: Naish Dash 2: Does anyone knows when?

Agree. The current Dash is so good I honestly can't see where a designer would make improvements. It jumps huge, turns fast, rides nicely unhooked with good slack, is forgiving and has great feel.

Re: Best single strut kite for boosting on foil?

Interesting news on the D. I had the .5s and they didn’t jump very well.

Re: Best single strut kite for boosting on foil?

Thanks. I wonder how the north mono, naish boxer and airush ultra all compare for boosting.

Best single strut kite for boosting on foil?

Of all the single strut kite offerings, which one boosts the biggest? I’m looking for a kite which I can foil on in 8-10 knots but is also good for freestyle in 16 knot winds. Right now I have the Dash which is a sweet kite but is a bit heavy on lighter days
