Re: Better kite compression bag? Hate the single strap

Has anyone seen something like this with two straps like a backpack? Or does anyone have suggestions on a bag that can fit a kite or two, and a pump and harness strapped outside? Here ya go! https://ozonekites.com/products/accessories/travel-gear-bag/ or https://ozonekites.com/products/accessories/...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

LF kites are run of the mill, But LF top of the line boards are some of the best on the market. Sad. I think LFK would be smarter to focus on what they're best known for... twintip boards. In the US the only kiteboarding "twintip only" manufacturers (that I'm aware of) are Litewave Designs and Jimm...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

The big question now is: who is next ? I think it's a US business problem! Dakine is out of the game and up for sale (H2O devision) and now LFK is out of the kite game. With all of the discounting and NOS inventory, I predict Slingshot will be the next to get out of kiteboarding. Established Hawaii...

Re: Carbon or prime ride engine harness question?

Ride Engine harness: is there much difference in the real world use between them or is the carbon one just more as it’s carbon and you pay to say you have the best. Is the prime one just as good but cheaper? Anyone have real beach feedback? Elliot It's a difference in the flex profile caused by the...

Re: Dakine harness with mystic spreader bar

What concerns me is the locking system on the shorts I would recommend avoiding the C-Bar Slider 3.0 and getting the Hook/Slider 3.0 version. The Slider only version has a simple QR buckle attachment (two hooks) which just snap down and lightly lock into place without tensioning. The Hook version c...

Re: Dakine harness with mystic spreader bar

What about the ION C-Bar Hook / Slider 3.0 2020? Is this compatible with Dakine Nitrous? Yes! The C-Bar3.0 has a quick release buckle that locks into place, so it will not come unlocked or unhooked as long as the straps are tighten. Ion has a new C-Bar indicated on their website (2021 version?) tha...

Re: What do you think about a plywood surfboard?

Check out Litewave's DV8 G1 board. It was a full paulownia wood core board and weighed a ton. Fun board though.


The G2 was lighter due to (if I remember correctly) a change to a wood and foam core.

Re: Ion C-Bar 3.0 Hook Spreader Bar vs Mystic Stealth

EDIT: I spotted one other major difference - ION states that the hook can be easily removed/added. This is definitely a plus, although can not find a video how fast/easy it is. Mystic's hook is also relatively easy to add/replace like Ion's. Here's their hook... https://www.mysticboarding.com/produ...

Re: Ion C-Bar 3.0 Hook Spreader Bar vs Mystic Stealth

Personally I don't like Mystic's "pillow" shaped padding vs. Ion's "dog bone" shaped padding on their s-bars. The "pillow" shape I find too bulky and is restricting when doing some tricks. I've found the wings on the Stealth bar offer no real benefit if using a rope slider. It does however offer a b...

Re: boardshorts versus waist performance

Something you may like is a Hybrid type harness that blends a waist with a seat/short harness. Check out Mystic's Star Hybrid harness and Prolimit's Kite Seat Combo harness. Ocean Rodeo also offers their Session3 waist harness that has removable leg straps like a climbing harness. I'm in my late 40'...
