Re: No map on se.kiteforum.com/spots

Mapbox is cheaper and very powerful www.mapbox.com looks good, but still if I have 125.000 users I would pay 400 USD. Cannot. The question is, what they count as users...IPs? Visits? That number varies a lot... prices.png They don't count visits but Map requests. A map request is when a Map shows u...

Re: No map on se.kiteforum.com/spots

Since Google changed their API usage few months ago, you need a linked credit card to your Google Cloud account.
The pricing has also increased but nothing prohibitive for a site like KF.
Check the capture attached or visit https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform/pricing/ for more detailse

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

$+4000 for a foil kite? :lol: :lol:
My brand new 24m Ozone paraglider cost me les than $3000. Needless to say that the quality is top notch (same as any other brand) and there are no issues related to construction or performance.

Re: Switch kites current state of the union

The solution I got from them was to send the kite, plus control bar (custom made) to another continent (so they could "test it"), and requiring me to take care of the shipping costs. Nasty solution to discourage a client to use the warranty. BTW, their website has the perfect example of bullshit mar...

Re: Switch kites current state of the union

Last year I purchased an Element 6 12m (I had already owned two Switch kites previously). The worst piece of sh*t I've tried in years... Slow, heavy (5 struts) and poor performance in light wind (needed at least 16 knots to barelly stay upwind). Long and floaty jumps when powered up though. Since I ...

Re: New pro Gong foil wings?

I am also looking at Gong foils but their kite wings range is very limited. The standard wing is 712cm2 while the big one is 1092cm2. Do you think the 712cm2 is a good option for a beginner? The equivalent wing on other kite brands is about 800/850cm2. By the way, Gong naming convention for their fo...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Dumb question... If a 65g/m2 Aluula fabric is x10 times stronger than the current 150g/m2 Dacron, why don't make the Aluula even lighter?

Re: Airush 2020 Collection

I’m pretty sure you can reduce number of bars and kites from your range and to your surprise your sale figures might go up, too much choice is causing people pain & confusion. Take a look at flysurfer both LEI and foil kites or new North line up three kites one bar that’s more than enough to cover ...

Re: Airush 2020 Collection

5 bars? These guys at Airush don't know what KISS means.
