Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

My guess is pure wave kites like the Neo or Slash will turn quicker with less edging... My experience with the evo and the neo was I could turn the evo quicker Waves and breaks are very different and can change with the the tide or the size and direction of the swell. No one would blink an eye if y...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

I can’t speak to the pivot which would be on my list of kites to try. But as far as the neo and evo, I picked the evo for waves. I sold my neos. I personally think some of the new 3 strut all around kites are very good in waves and have some advantages over the dedicated wave kites in real world wav...

Re: Duotone 2020 bar with new lines?

I used q power line pro for years. It would last a long time but I wouldn’t call it the stiffest line. Since it wasn’t prestretched and you would tie knots, you had to fuss some with line stretch. I remember way back there was a discussion with a kite company using and they claimed there just wasn’t...

Re: Big air and waving quiver advice

Hi purdyd! Thanks for your experience. Sounds good. We get storms here where the constant wind is in de high 30ties and the gust easily over 40. The 8 and the 6, what do you think my wind window would be on a surfboard? And you say the 10 rebel That’s a lot of wind. Probably one of the reasons some...

Re: Big air and waving quiver advice

I have the 9,8,7,6 meter 2018 evo’s and pretty much use them only in waves on surfboards or light wind foiling. I had the 8 and 6 neo from the same year and prefer the evo in waves. They both drift well, but the neo has a bit more turning ability when drifting. The evo is faster turning, has lighter...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

This guy never visited Australia. Today, 3 foilers, ZERO beach goers on 2km stretch. Its Easter Saturday evening, BBQ and footy for most. No, no need for quick reload on many occasions/locations. To be fair, fixed rope could be fine. Use a knife when really needed. One might use a knife anyway in s...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

you should always ride in the way that you don't need a QR. That is the safest way possible. Once you need to activate a QR, you made a mistake. Back then we didn't have a QR... Absolutely something has gone wrong. Someone wrapped their kite around your lines. A bridle got snagged A line broke Anot...

Re: No need for a release system/safety?

Given that there are other people on the planet, and beaches and water are desirable for recreation for the vast majority of them, there will be beach goers at potentially every location you can kite at. This guy never visited Australia. Today, 3 foilers, ZERO beach goers on 2km stretch. Its Easter...

Re: easily reset chickenloops

The logic is that all marketing behind the "superior" release will trick people in thinking that they are safe. That is shallow thinking. It is a common occurrence lately with a weekend warriors. Hope the future proves me wrong. isn't your "marketing" the wichard the same thing? and honestly, I'm a...

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

And since everyone wants to foil, they should start with foiling. Not everyone wants to foil. Many people find it boring af. Don't be obtuse, these are completely different topics. OP makes 3 points. 1 most want to use a waist harness so why start them on a seat harness? See the analogy? 2 waist ha...
