Re: 2016 North Evo backstalling

All lines have a tag on it with a length, and I compared my measurements with these. I only use this bar with this kite, as my other kite is a 2015 rebel and it has a 5 line setup. On the bar itself, at full power all lines are the same length, that’s what I meant ‘perfectly tuned’. I have to pull ...

Re: Stupid Big Kid

I used to own 2 Best Waroo 2013, they had revised graphics but were the last incarnation of what was for the time, a great kite. The bar that my kites came with worked fine but the safety (flag out) with the leash clipped into the chrome ring at the chicken loop was what was known as a suicide syste...

Having a standard is the right step forward.

Now can we agree on colors too ?

Break lights on cars are all the same color too...
yes on both sides too ;)

Re: Hatteras closed. Who will get the money back?

10th year our group has booked with “surf n turf” but as of now no refunds for us and their cancellation insurance won’t pay.... I remember some years back Dimitri suggesting that they be avoided, should have listened.

Re: Older guy learning to kiteboard

In our 50ies we are just “in training” to be able to kite in the decades which are to come. If we keep weight under control and look after strength and flexibility then with a little luck there are many more years of aquatic nirvana to be enjoyed. Injuries are of course a caveat as you heal slower i...

Re: Foiling gear, upgrading.

Thanks for both replies ....... it seems to me that choice of gear is very personal and folks who have theirs really dialled In often have a few customisations. I should perhaps spend my time my time to practice, and demo whatever I can. Save my money for when I am more able and understand more........

Foiling gear, upgrading.

I am progressing quite well in my quest to become a foiler, the gear I started with, Nobile G10 Freeride, has served me well but it's heavy to travel with and I'd like to improve it. I am aware that Nobile make newer Freeride wings and stabalisers which would seem to give more lateral stability and ...

Re: Vacuum bag to travel with for kites

I use this type of system when I travel, I have found with my 5 strut kites which use lots of stiff material it's hard to expel all the air and the bags do help save space, my 3 strut kites are less complicated and easier to manage. I have never had issues with valves being damaged but I don't compr...

Just an FYI , if you fly to Cuba from Canada the flights transit through US airspace, Dept of Homeland Security is given a passenger manifest.

Re: Best waroo year

Agree with you, 2008 had the multiple positions on the back lines , in 2009 they changed all the graphics, in 2010 they redesigned the kite and ruined it. My first kite was an Utter POS called a Slingshot Link which fortunately I trashed. The 2008 Waroo which replaced was night and day different, gr...
