Re: Increasing Turn Speed, V Distributor Location (Dice)

... hey CALencioni, Short answer, the MacKite guys are right! Higher V position can enhance the feel of tighter turning radius on some kites and I believe the Dice falls into that category,,,,,, but you can also loose a bit on the static power along with upwind.

I've rescued many while twin tipping or riding a surfboards but it was very tricky now seeing as I was riding a ...

Re: Why does Core xr 4 fly better on a core bar?

You always have to think both ways; what impulse comes from the bar and what impulse comes from the kite. Bar development is rocket science, trust me, working 15 years + in the game....it is! Good bar feeling over a big wind range / kite range is rocket science, 100% !!! Endcap/ winder geometry is ...

G'day Kitenight11, I've been lucky to have a go of the new Spirit Carve 950 with the 90cm mast mounted on a 4'10" Pace board recently. I was using the Speedster with the Freefoil board before and its the one I learnt on. I haven't done a back to back comparisons on the same day yet, but hopefully ve...

Opinions wanted on Duotone Spirit Carve foil

G'day,

has anyone had a ride on the Duotone's Spirit Carve hydrofoil yet, I'd like your opinions please.

If you can compare it to the Speedster that would be even better.

Thanks,

Robbie :) :thumb:
