Re: Naish Pivot vs Fone Bandit

I have only used a bandit years ago, but I have a 10 &12m '19 Pivots and have used them for boosting, waves & hydrofoiling. Hydrofoiling is great, good enough drift and easy to nail gybing - for me the Pivot is the perfect one-kite for everything. If you are on a budget, the Park (not Park HD) is al...

Re: Kevin Langeree Pro model kiteboard

Lol... still have a Naish Flash Mutant !

Nothing wrong with Pro models, as they can offer something distinctive.... i.e. the Flash is the only Mutant I have ever seen with channels on the nose.

Re: From which jumping height the heliloop is mandatory?

V nice thread, I agree with the above comments I would say that up to 12m (as indicated by WOO - so that's 7m in the real world :wink: ), there's no need to heliloop, but it is worthwhile practicing them, as when done well, the landings are really nice and controlled.... but for the "oh Sh1t" jumps,...
