Re: Is strapless overrated?

<warning - petty rant ahead> For the last few years as strapless has become 'popular' (yeah yeah I know, but since the mags have shown it on every other page) we've had a huge influx of noobs standing in the water trying to find their boards. Or body dragging in to waist depth then waiting for their...

Re: North Prototype

I asked Nick about a three-strut kite to complement this five-strut one and he said they would have it for testing soon, but I'm no longer in Cape Town so someone else will have to break that story, and don't know if Nick is still there. I can guarantee that if there had been a 3 strut or 5 strut C...

F-One Bandit Bladder Nipples are shit

Any other F-One riders having issues with the one pump bladders? fone.PNG I've had so many issues. The nipples seem to get yellow and hard, then break where the dots are. I'm sure this is because it is a totally shit design with a weak point. The Bandit flexes a lot in the sky, I think F-One need to...

Re: marc jacobs kota - pushed harder than anyone

Totally agree that Mark should have got through. But more impressively was that riding out was switch for him?! And he's still booting twice as high as I'll ever get! [edit] Toby we should have a kiteforum award for KOTA most coolest trick or best session. Make an actual award (or buy a nice one) th...

Re: Slingshot bar on Fone Bandit?

I do. It's fine.

I replaced the below the bar depower with a clamcleat above the bar. But it is still a low V with slingshot swivel. Works on a 10m bandit and 7m bandit. Flags to one front line.

Review. Bought some items as Christmas presents. One of them was broken on arrival. One email later and I had a replacement delivered the next day. Very impressed with their customer service :D :thumb:

Buy with confidence :)

Re: Epic Screamer 6G - any reviews?

My brother is looking to upgrade either his 12m screamer 4G or 7m screamer 5G to the new version 6G ... which should he upgrade? Which will he get most bang for his buck?

Merge them. Less is more. "Board Construction".
Or DIY kitesurf? Kitesurf Construction?

Put the kitebuilders in there as well. I love it all! I made my own kites, boards, hydrofoils, repaired my bar and lines. I'm interested in all that stuff.
