Re: Twintip board recommendations for people with knee issues

Tried loads of shinn boards including the monk. I personally never found them that great and always ended up going back to my old 2013 nobile 50/50 which always was smoother and nicer and tried many other boards last few years including the raptor Ltd’s and stuff which also were never any better un...

Re: Twintip board recommendations for people with knee issues

I can vouch for the Monk. Had a few generations of these. You don't think much about it while you ride it, but when you get to test other boards side by side - it slaps your on the face. Other boards feel like riding a tree stump. Monk is very lively and easy on your knees while Shin's pads - albeit...

Re: North navigator control bar

Last time I've checked - Ozone still supplies bars with fixed line ends. So here goes your maintenance.

On most other (more sensible) brands you can simply replace your worn line ends every so often and keep going.

Re: Core Sensor 2 bar safety warning

Too bad that this guy isn't riding any Epic gear - that would have been a show not to miss.

OP, you've been having so many issues with Core bars - why are you still using them? You can perfectly fly Core kites from any other high-Y bar. Perhaps it's time to move on and quit bitc@ing?

Re: From which jumping height the heliloop is mandatory?

There is no requirement for a heli-loop. It's just a way to control the kite to make sure it stays above you. Active flying will do the same thing, but more difficult to land reliably as HPR said. It also looks awesome when you get that little lift 1-2m from the water for super smooth landings. :th...

Wasn't there a rule which said : if somebody can't spell "Cabrinha" - they should stick to gardening?

Re: Introducing the IQR from Airush

Actually, props to Airush for maintaining compatibility within their line. This season I've replaced trimmers (along with that pu-covered main line) on my 2015 and 2017 bars with the clam cleat style ones. And - I'm fairly certain that I'll be replacing chickenloops on both bars for next season. Oth...

Re: Pump lube

Get some air tools oil. Good for seals and safe for bladders. Splash of that stuff under the piston along with an occasional few drops on the shaft and your pumps will last for ages.

Re: Duotone Evo 2020

Has anyone noticed that the whole 2020 duotone's line is very monotone in coloring?
