Re: Boosting Kite that Wave Rides

That's an easy one - new Ocean Rodeo Crave. I will agree it depends on how much hangtime, etc. you want, but for a nice mix of boosting and surf it's hard to beat. Pivots really quick for redirecting in surf, but has a quick yank on boosting. Great kite for what you are looking for, especially if yo...

Re: Ride Engine/Slingshot Bat Wing/H4 vs. NF2/H5

As an update to this thread, no clue about the Apollo wing, but I picked up the H4 for that Black Friday deal and it's been great. It took a session or so to get used to as it provided a lot more feedback compared to the H5. It felt stiff at first, but I quickly found it was nice and carvy, the feed...

Barbados/Union Island or Anegada/Tortola

Ok, so I'm looking at going somewhere in February next year for my 40th. I'm an experienced kiter - 12 years or so and basically only ride strapless surf and foil. I'm mainly interested in finding surf (goofy-footed, so trades on the south side would be on my frontside). I'll travel with gear. Barba...

Re: Ion Riot 14 rope issue

Yeah, I have the Ion C-Bar with this cleat, and that sewn part looks new, but......I just go to West Marine and buy Dyneema and replace it when it looks worn. Two overhand knots and done.

Re: St Vincent and the Grenadines

I'm thinking about making this trip next February - but probably only a few days in Union Island, most of the time in Barbados, any tips?

I mainly am only interested in riding surf and I may rent a foil if possible.

Re: British Virgin Islands Kitesurfing Travel Guide

Yes you probably can, but I'm pretty sure there are better places to go surf than the Anegada reef. I'm not a surfer, but (apparently) there is a world class break at Cane Garden Bay but that's only right a few times out of the year. The local surfers usually go to Josiah's or Apple/Carrot bay for ...

Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Foiling in general, not sure why it took me so long. It hasn't taken over my kiting, it's just another tool in the arsenal, makes flat days fun. OR Stick Shift Bar - why you might ask? Not so much because I have short arms to reach depower, because I don't, or the clean lines above you (which is nic...

Re: Any OR Crave reviews yet?

Quick update on my last post regarding the 9m Crave. I've had 2 more solid, pretty lit sessions on it, both strapless surfboard. To expand on my notes before, here are a few more and who this kite is best for: -Surf: The crave is a lot lighter and more responsive than the Roam and Prodigy, more Raz...
