Re: Rebel 2012 on 2014 bar?

1. Yes 2. I have 2012 and 2017 Rebel (the last real 5 line type). 2017 depowers less (a big negative), has more power (positive) and remains easy and comfortable to fly in strong wind. Now I use the 2017 80% of the time and break out the 2012 when we have onshore wind and waves (the depower is criti...

Re: Kiting into trouble on an otherwise excellent day in the Bahamas

Seems to me that it boils down to never kite any further than you are willing to swim, factoring the current, waves, wind and temperature. That, and ditch your gear and start swimming (paddling if you have a surfboard) as soon as things go wrong... don't delay! Especially don't hold on on a kite in ...

Re: Auto-Zenith high performance kite

When I used to ride PL Arcs and Venoms, eating it on a wave and resurfacing to find the kite waiting for me in the air was the best feeling in the world Great, auto zenith can give some options never seen before except for the old Peter Lynn Arc kites. On a surfboard or a hydrofoil you can let the b...

Re: How much tension really is on the lines?

Great! This seems to confirm the values dimensions of the other video. Screenshot_20190207-124449.png Green line probably is the combined tension on the power lines and the lower two lines are the measurements on the steering lines. I wish they would make the data publicly available. I would guess ...

Apply a thick coating of Ion B2. If necessary, 1 cup of Dakine Nitrous after meals.

Re: Classic Idiot...

Hmmm, Toby, this is exactly why I do not want to be here any more. Remember, we did see your vid's in the same situation or even worse. You were lucky not to injure yourself. Sorry, you are not right on this occasion, imo. The recent changes are subtle but... PS I do not see the lake? Who is seeing...

Re: Ozone Enduro V3 Release Date ?

I respect a brand that does not push out a product just because 'it's time' and instead pushes out a product when they have something that's actually BETTER

Re: Line lengths for mega looping

I just heli loop (both down and normal loop) because I'm old, fat and a chicken. It's looping for fun, not as a challenge.
Looping on 27m lines is a blast. So easy, relaxed and easier landings than 23m lines. Try it!

Re: Making launch safer - learning from the experts

https://youtu.be/U76QW8nUWhM This is a short video of myself doing unhooked assisted launch. Wind speed was 18, gusting to 25 kts, super gusty and shifty, 6m kite, had no problem holding on to the kite. This is our landboarding spot. Spot on Alex! So many people would be alive today if they had lau...
