Re: How to turn a topic about a fatality into an absurd helmet discussion

Lmao, those helmets look absolutely ridiculous, around here they are mostly worn by stereotypical older guys who also wear a board short and a fluorescent shirts with a seat harness. Not going to wear a helmet on the water, have my head banging around, yes on solid surfaces I can deff understand, or...

shorten depower line instead of adding pigtails to steering lines?

Hi all, i bought a secondhand flysurfer soul and the depower line needs replacing. the steering lines have shrunk as well. i cannot add any more length to the steering lines because the previous owner already has done so, and am out of line to adjust the knots. Could i instead of adding pigtails to ...

Re: Warning - Mystic stealth hook SNAP!

How do you know if you have the old one?
Imagine this happening when on a 10-15m jump....Christ
Would you die from a fall that high?

Re: Does a high performance SLE have more power?

SLEs are more of freeride kites - with looping you can squeeze more power out of them. Yet if you want more loft and glide you’d be looking for high aspect SLE which don’t loop as nicely. I switched to 11m because I considers 12m a “slow size” yet my favorite jumping size is 9m. Classic Rallys, 205...

Re: Does a high performance SLE have more power?

High aspect kites, like rebel/orbit/xr, are easier to go upwind with but I would not say they have more power. Actually they are generally very forgiving to ride on their top end because they sit so far forward in the wind window. So enough skill at 95 KG you probably do not need any smaller then 9...

Does a high performance SLE have more power?

Hi all, I kite Northern Europe (North Sea) alternating between 2 locations, one location with easy riding and no current and one open sea with strong currents and messy onshore chop/big waves (making it very difficult to go upwind or keep consistent speed) Been kiting 2 years, have a flysurfer soul ...

Re: Why is Reedin Kites so damn expensive

Exactly the reason why I either buy used/secondhand or cheaper brands like Ventum or others.

I refuse to pay those exorbitant amounts for almost little to no increase in tech. Absolute madness some of these amounts

Re: Bigger board or bigger kite?

Well damn, you went out on a big wing you have zero experience with in wind of 18 knots. I don't know why have you decided to ditch your 12m LEI for that wind, because for me I'd rather grab that kite for such wind. Hell, I'd grab 12m LEI if there would be 14-15 knots. It just looks like you're aim...

Re: Bigger board or bigger kite?

Small update, bought a 15m and took it out today in 17-18 knots, gusts around 22-23, completely depowered and it was just awful. Launching it was awful, landing it was awful and it’s just way too big and powerful. I got completely ragdolled on the water, the kite just keeps going and going, you get ...
