Re: Quobba Fins

Since I've ridden them back to back to my standard fins under similar conditions I can honestly say there's a noticeable difference. Have you compared them to something like the Futures fins with their V2 foil? Quoted from Futures... "The foil enhances efficient water flow with its uniquely designe...

Re: Quobba Fins

I always love how someone who hasn't tried something is the biggest critic. Since I've ridden them back to back to my standard fins under similar conditions I can honestly say there's a noticeable difference. I can feel that difference in my feet. They don't need engineering data to confirm it. I'd ...

Re: Quobba Fins

I have a set on a Firewire Vader. My strapless skills are - ok - so take my opinion fwiw. I really haven't had a great session on them in good surf but have ridden them in HR Gorge swell, & lake chop. I have ridden them back to back to my other fins which I liked really well. They are faster & there...

Re: Kiting specific Snowboard design and size thoughts?

You may not have to go as long with R. camber/R sidecut. Basically an oval shaped board that is very wide through the center. Lib Tech was making a board called the banana hammock & really not sure of other builders of boards with similar shape. If you see an old Ozone board - they have that shape &...

Re: Kiting specific Snowboard design and size thoughts?

Bigger & wider will definitely be your friend. A split board will be your safety mechanism. Mine has probably saved my life at least once & saved hours of aggravated post holing numerous times. It is really easy to get a kit to make a split board once you've found the board you like. The 1st step is...

Re: Switch Nitro 7

Leant Im wondering why youd compare it to 3 slow turning kites ? Check out how much he was throwing down on red bull KOA tv. A park and ride kite does do all that stuff easily.. N-7 (if I get 1) would be my primary snow kite. Edge, Turbine, & FS Boost 2 are great snow kites. I am not into freestyle...

Re: Switch Nitro 7

Yeah, I'm sure they do some minor adjustments but it is pretty disappointing to just buy other designs after all the awesome Bill Hansen designs. I'm yet to see any non-Hansen Switch kites at my local. The spider bridle was Hansen's, so logical it's gone. I had the N-5 14M & 7M & all the spider bri...

Really looking forward to rider reviews on this kite. Especially if someone has a good comparison to Ozone Edge or Flysurfer Boost 2

Re: Flysurfer Soul

The problem with Flysurfer kites lately is they are trying to use very high tensile strength lines but very thin lines to minimize turning drag. The problem with these lines is very poor abrasion resistance. The other problem in the US is the distributor for FS doesn't give a crap about customers. T...
