Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

Finally bought the hydroshort 5.4". Today my first ride and I am very happy with it. Waist high waves and the board handled light, snappy and fun. Saturday will be a day with 30 Knots and bigger waves. Looking forward to try it in those conditions. I am confident the Hydroshort will perform good. T...

Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

Ok, so here's my update. Primary takeaway is don't and I repeat, don't use Quobba fins with this board. No knock on the board or Quobbas, they work fine on other boards. The confluence of a foil-type water flow off the fin towards the tail and the deep channeling through the center of the board made...

It would be great if someone can do ‘blind testing’ of Aluula vs regular fabric.
I have a 12m Aluula Roam on order and have last year's 12m Roam in my quiver (which will be for sale once I get the Aluula). I'll take some comparison photos, weight, overall review once it arrives.

Re: Quobba Fins review

Sweet The 2020 whip has much more aggressive channels than the older north whip not sure on the hydroshort? If its twitchy it might be you want a larger fin. The med quobbas are similar size to small john johns. If you can try the large quobbas in the front :D So, to follow up on this, the Hydrosho...

Re: XTR kite construction for Tomo

I am riding medium fins, so I may try a bit larger of a fin. It's very quick rail to rail. Thanks - I saw smaller fins were suggested for these Tomo boards. At 86kg, would you go size large for Hydroshort in medium waves? Which board do you suggest for learning strapless, Hydroshort or Evo/Whip? Le...

Re: XTR kite construction for Tomo

I have the 5'4" Hydroshort, about 15 sessions on it at this point, all backside, so not a complete review but I have a pretty good feel for it. I'm 78kg, ride it as a thruster and my other directional is a 5'2" Whip CSC, so somewhat relatable to the Evo. The Whip CSC has one advantage over the Hydro...

Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

Hi from france🇫🇷. I just bought a 5.6 hydroshort. I am 75 kilogrammes , only surf , no jump. The board is very light and lively, 3 fins (fcs H4 médium). Positive point: fast, good upwind ability, snappy +++, turns are / can be very tight 👍. Volume allow me not to lose speed in thé bottom zone (curr...

Re: Ocean rodeo razor gen 7 (2019) opinion?

14m? What wind are you typically using it in and what size are you? The Razor is a very responsive kite, it's great for powered riding so powered loops, and has a really quick and vertical yank off the water when boosting. Depending on your level, you may be more apt for a OR Prodigy or Flite. I ha...

Re: Ocean rodeo razor gen 7 (2019) opinion?

Anyone owns or tried Ocean Rodeo Razor ? I'm looking to expand my quiver, with a 14m kite and I found a good deal on a 2019 gen 7 razor. But I never tried a C shaped kite and unsure if it's a good choice for me. I'm intermediate, mostly freeriding, progressing in jumps and enjoying waves sometime. ...
