Re: Anybody with a review of OR Roam HL ?

The HL is just not as light or stiff as the A-Series. The upstroke is a little slower on the HL etc. Same with the Drift. The A-series is just a little better. Sorry, I haven't taken an Enduro in the waves.

Re: Anybody with a review of OR Roam HL ?

It feels a little lighter, faster, and more solid than the previous generation Dacron Roams. The wind is always on-shore with crappy, messy, small waves here so I've never even seen a barrel. So, take my wave reviews with that in mind....

Re: OR 12m HL-flite vs HL-Crave

I have ridden both, more of the Crave than the Flite, but still a bunch. I don't know that the low end wind ranges are that different. At the very low end of any kite I find a lot has to do with the current, waves, air density, lulls vs. steadiness, skill, board, etc. The differences for me were mor...

Re: 2022 Ocean Rodeo Aluula Rise: first hand experience?

7m Rise test. It's feast or famine -- it's either too light or too strong for the 12m. But I loved the ride on this 7m. It is the most stable, solid, and precise 7m I've ever flown. I'm never going back to Dacron.

Re: 2022 Ocean Rodeo Aluula Rise: first hand experience?

It bums me out that all we've had is light or no wind since the 12m arrived. Actually, we've had other 12m's, but they were preordered so we couldn't take them out for video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7DiJ6KZgkc I regret to say, I'm 190 pounds, the wind was 7-17mph, and the board is a Stylus ...

Re: 2022 Ocean Rodeo Aluula Rise: first hand experience?

Wish I could review the 12m, but they sell out before I can ride one. You may have seen this video from last fall of the 10m already, ignore it if it's a rerun:

Re: A-Roam vs A-Rise?

The two biggest differences I have found from riding both are these two things: 1. Power in turns. The Rise pivots around it's wingtip with a lot of power. The Roam turns around a point somewhere in the canopy with little power. Powered kite loop vs. changing kite direction on a wave without getting...
