Imagine what that's going to be like when something goes wrong.

Yeah, they just changed their website... looks like there are some bugs. Forum doesn't work either.

Don't worry about the customer service :thumb:

Yes their website is probably done by some kiter moonlighting as web designer. Can't even order a kite from Android phone with the new interface.

But so is Zeekos website, but I'm happy with my purchase.

I am considering Helium for light wind. I am riding TT, 80kg. Have 12m as biggest at the moment. Can someone with experience advice which size of Helium would fit better for TT in lets say 10-15knots. 16 or 18m?

I also had some problems with the order I made last week. UPS called me today and should arrive on Monday or Tuesday.

It's a fairly minor thing, but I really like that Switch supply their kites with a minimalist draw string bag. I did a short road trip recently and it was easy to put 4 kites in the car in the same space that 2-3 kites would take in normal backpacks.

When setting up I can simply stuff the bag into my pocket while pumping. It is very convenient. I kept a backpack when I discarded my old kites, but I have had no reason to use it so far.

I see they have added a shoulder strap and compression straps to the draw string bag. Hopefully that will add to the functionality without decreasing the minimalist convenience.

Im 100kg with wet gear and I ride a TT 140x42, got the H3 16, had the H2 15.5 before.
I can use the H3 down to around 10kn, not feeling any lag of power. :D
