Re: Kite.quiver

Looks like you've been pretty active on this forum lately looking for advice on building a quiver with a compatible bar(s). Well, you came to right place for advice. It would be more useful however, if you listed your weight, where you plan to ride(waves, chop, flat, snow, ect...), and what your pri...

Re: Xr5 15m lightwind? Or

For L.E.I.'s, you might want to consider the 14.5 Flite. They list the weights on the O.R. website. I have the 14.5 and the 17 and they are the best light wind kites I've flown to date. A very efficient kite for our San Diego Winds, especially in beach breaks were Foil kites aren't very practical. G...

I'd be forwarding those new test results to BWS.
Easiest (and most effective) way to do that is to send them the link to your findings and the discussion around it.

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...
