Re: Why isn't sliding rope bar more prevalent?

I think the sliding rope is great for riding a directional where you are toeside a ton, I think that's pretty much a given, and yes, use 2 independent ropes. Far as jumping that's the one time I'd rather have a fixed hook. Boosting on a rope is possible, but I'd rather have the hook. With that said,...

Re: Keahi - Cabrinha Spade 5'3 or 5'6?

Which size is he using? Is it a mistake to use 5'3 rather than 5'6 weighing 75 kilograms, wanting to practice strapless hooked freestyle? How do they compare? I have no clue what he's using, but......I had the 5'3" and I''m roughly 78 kgs, fun board to throw around, but definitely needs some wind. ...

Re: Quobba Fins

Has anyone tried these? They are reduced in price right now ($110 USD), looks like they had solid reviews over on the aussie forum - Seabreeze. I'm interested in them for kiting and SUP surfing.

Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

I will say - the one piece of gear that I have fun on every single time out would be the Ocean Rodeo Mako Duke. It's probably not the best board for really critical waves/conditions, but for just sheer fun every session, and most typical conditions, it's a great board. Basically the longboard of my ...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Roam feedback wanted

How is the turning speed of the 12m ROAM ?.. I am thinking of getting a 12m for light wind wave riding and skimming.....I have a 12m flite and Prodigy and love them both, but they still feel like 12s....is the Roam noticeably faster turning?? Roam 12 turns like a 12. I borrowed a friend's Prodigy 1...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Roam feedback wanted

Any feedback from those of you riding Roams would be appreciated. Im thinking about replacing my Solos (9 & 6.5) with Roams in order to gain some flutter free top end, keeping good drift.. I adore my 12m Flite and am leaning towards Ocean Rodeo for my surf oriented kites as well because of that, bu...

Re: Ocean Rodeo: The Next Gen Bars Are Here

I'll say this, I was a bit skeptical at the added value of these next gen/rear-line depower bar/lines. I'll preface this by saying I rarely ever use the QR on any bar, just no real need. I'm thinking I've pulled the QR maybe 3 times total in the past 6 or 7 years. In any case, I've been using the OR...

Moorea

I know there's a few threads here and there, but does anyone have any kite experience or information regarding Moorea in Tahiti? Thinking about heading there for my 10 year anniversary next year, mostly to SUP surf, but I'll take the kite gear along as well, probably in the October/November range.

Re: How to pack a travel bag

I wouldn't worry about a twintip, it's like a snowboard it's not going to get banged up. Here's a few tips though: 1. Take the fins out (yeah no sh!t) 2. Put your harness open under the board on the bottom, it fits well, and keeps your harness from getting bent over. 3. Pack your kites at the bottom...

Grand Cayman - Barker's - Surf/Reef

I visited Grand Cayman and kited Barker's back in 2013, I loved it, one of my favorite spots I've visited. At that point, I was strictly a flat water/boosting on small bumps kind of kiter. Now, I'm more into waves and ride a surfboard 90% of the time. I'm just wondering if I visited in February, wha...
