Re: Buying used lightwind kite Beginner Help

The new Flites have 2 pulleys and the older models have 6 pulleys. I have only ridden the 2017 17m (4 pulleys) and the 2018 14.5m. Sorry I can't be more help with the 2014 models.

Re: Buying used lightwind kite Beginner Help

Ocean Rodeo Flite is the best light wind LEI kite that I've ever flown. I have 2 brand new 2018 17m Flites. I only need one. I'll sell you one for 899.00 if you want it. I have a purple/black and green/black still in ribbon. PM me if you are interested.

Re: Lowest bar pressure kite?

The Ocean Rodeo Flite has light bar pressure. I think the 12m would also make a decent kite for foiling in light wind if you choose that rout.

Re: Learning Strapless, what to do first, Jibe, Tack etc?

Not really sure on all the terminology here but I can tell what helped me. 1)Carving: Find some flat water and go way upwind. Then, do a downwinder while practicing going heel side to toe side as you follow your kite through the turns . This will help the most in wave riding. 2) Switching stance: Co...

Re: 14m 3-strut "lighter" wind kite recommendations?

Ocean Rodeo Flite 14.5m is a great light wind kite. The 2018 and newer models now have the same kite bridle attachment configuration ( loops of the kite's front bridle, knots on the back/steering bridle lines ) as your Cab kites, so would work on your Cab bars. I second that. At about 220 lbs, it's...

Re: Is strapless overrated?

But if you choose to handicap yourself by riding without straps, your likely delusional, probably emotional and quite likely a snob. I agree. Beginners should start with straps until they get the basics down. However, there is a balance and flow you lose as soon as your foot goes into a strap and y...

Re: Is strapless overrated?

For me, straps get in the way. Only upside I can see is boosting. However, more satisfied with a 5-10 ft strapless air than big dangly boost on a directional(which is also over rated). Been there done that with the strapped directional sitting on the beach, yet rarely used. Even when it's big, strap...

Re: Cymatic (Tomo MPH) in kiteconstruction?

In regards to Firewires: I would advise not use LFT or Rapid Fire technology for kite surfing (been there done that). The fin boxes did not hold for me, same for my friend. The kite-construction is very strong, but also pretty heavy(been there done that too). I've always used and prefer the FST stoc...

Re: Bridle Tags on a Cabrinha contra 15

Not totally sure, only speculating. I've heard the 15m Contra is a sweet light wind kite and may be the best size in the Contras. :thumb:
