Re: The most amazing crashes at Ponta Preta during GKA Cabo Verde 2019

Watching the board flying in the air with the leash attached looks pretty scary to me. Great video thanks for sharing!

Re: Shoulder friendly freeride kites?

I think the three strut north/Duotone evo is on the light side especially when flown with the most rearward knot attachment point for the steering lines. I don’t think it is a short throw kite. And I have found some kites to be quite light when on the powered side and can be a lot of work in the lig...

Re: Safe Jump height

There is no safe height.

That being said, the best way to get really big air is to fly very powered and there is more potential to get hurt or killed.

Anytime you put up a kite, you assume some risk of death and injury.

Of course anytime you wake up you have some chance of dying too.

Re: Duotone Mono 2019

Ha! You beat me to it Toby. I just saw it aswell. They removed the dirt from the design. The big sticker like logo is really ugly in my opinion, should've kept the dirt. They might do it on purpose who knows :lol: :lol: Edit: ups that sticker logo was there before, didn't even realize it that well ...

Re: Magnet Wax

I've used sticky bumps punt wax and it is way stickier than any pad in water with booties on.

Re: Duotone 2020 bar with new lines?

The problem though is not the clickbar or the lower lines but the flying lines. It's also a problem on the Trust Bar. After 2 years, these lines show much more wear than other lines/bars. I am done with Duotone/North lines. I am replacing mine now with lines from Liros. I think it is both but the f...

Re: Is strapless overrated?

i used to have an underground 110cm? tray. it was a lot of fun! I recall it cost more than $2.98. I rode a skim board, strapless for awhile. I wasn't really good at it. We are getting off topic with the Tomo shapes but stub nose, stub tail, with rocker in the channel design is meant to allow you to ...
