Just to make sure, she wears a watch on her right arm, and not one of those Powerbalance scams?! Awesome day..

Siick, can't wait to see videos of the boardoff comp.
Seb Garat has shown a nice boardflip the other day, so it seems like Toby gets some competition in his domain :wink:

Re: High boosting kites

I second the 09 Nemesis.. Goes both high and also glides pretty long. Generally speaking, high aspect, forward flying kites should do well. A high aspect c-kite will whip you up faster and drop you quicker, whereas a high aspect flat kite (like the Ozone Edge, Cab Crossbow etc) will be more like a p...

Re: BWS Noise ? why so deep silence ?

BWS Noise and silence, you gotta be kidding.. On Seabreeze you find a new video/snippet every two weeks where some dude is shredding up 3ft ripples with a Noise. Also "reviews" from people who coincidentally just happened to create an account.. Obviously there is a lot of talk about Epic as well, bu...

Re: high wind (30knots+) SLE kites?

Generally speaking, kites that fly far forward in the wind window have a good top end. In the gusts they punch even more forward, rather than just staying there and deforming. So a somewhat flat high aspect kite with at least 5 struts to make it rigid enough should be good. Examples are the Crossbow...

Re: Light Wind Challenge 2011

2) SELF RESCUE from 500m offshore in simulated wind dropouts or line breakage. I guess it's for a reason that you emphasize this point so much.. Question: When someone flies a ram air in super light conditions (knowing potential relaunch/self rescue issues), why should he kite 500m offshore? It wou...

Re: Trailing edge battens?

I guess I meant to say trailing edge battens! Like the ones on the Nemesis.
But apparently some kites have cam battens as well, like the Vegas.

Trailing edge battens?

E.g. the Nemesis HP has these battens, one each side near the wingtips at the trailing edge.
Just wondering what the pros/cons are, and why only a few kites have those?
I suppose they are meant to smooth out the canopy for various angles of attack, whilst durability is probably a concern.
