Re: Airush - Any recommendations about the products?

Kites: among the most durable on the market, if they suit your needs. For me they killed the Union as of V4 - so I'm on something else now. Bars: not the best in terms of gimmicks - but very solid, dependable, easy to service and maintain. I've been running a pair of Airush bars for the last 4 seaso...

Re: Ozone Enduro - user opinions

Had some bad experience with a used Enduro V1 12m (the typical used Ozone issues like shrinking webbings, etc...). Managed to exchange it under warranty - ish for a brand new V2 12m.   Totally loved how it flies, totally  hated how it aged. -Don't get on if you're planning to keep your kites for lon...

Re: Lieuwe Shotgun 138 x 42 twintip - review

I've had Monks. (iirc) the Monks were more flexible than the Shotgun but among other things lacked the clever channelling which gives the Shotgun its huge grip. I also own a fully-channeled Axis Vanguard, which is my go-to beater board for spots with really bad rocks and when it gets too cold to ri...

Re: Lieuwe Shotgun 138 x 42 twintip - review

Anyone had a chance to ride the Shotgun against the Monk - back to back? These seem to be very close in their marketing speech. I've been riding Monks for the last few seasons, test driving everything I can only to realise how good it feels to get back on the Monk... but i've been curious about Lieu...

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...
