Maui on Westerlies?

Are there any spots on Maui that are good on rare westerly winds?

Re: how much do the top riders actually make per year?

As a competitive snowboarder back in the 1990s I had friends with board models bearing thier names who didn't really make much money at all even though they had pictures in most every new issue of Transworld Snowboarding or other mags.

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.

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?

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...
