Re: How to enlarge the Naish Apex straps? (Neo shoes, boots)

Instead of my previous klunky O'Neill boots that were EOL over a season ago (but still used them last winter), I've now bought Atan madisson 3mm neo/rubber 'socks' that promise a barefoot feeling and certainly feel thin enough to use with the Apex straps. I didn't have the Apex last season but am ce...

Re: Custom Hardshell made in shop.. would it work?

I actually have been thinking about this and I do feel that it could be feasible. Looking at the skiboot-industry, they have been able to make custom fitting available at shops everywhere. Why wouldn't that be possible with a kite harness? Once the harness is really custom fit, there is much less ne...

Re: Kite type and line length % effect on jump height

I have a contrary experience, I'm jumping higher on 21m lines then 24m. Same bar but moved to 21m when ordering new lines.

Re: Hello all help with rigging wipika air blast

The unanswered question is why would you want to fly this kite? You seem to know and understand it is very old and not up to current standards. You have an upgraded bar but how do you know that it will now work correctly with the kite? You don't. You show a lack of understanding of the sport by stat...

Re: High wind kite?

As my highwind kites for TT and SB I use the Naish Slash in 5 and 7. Although a dedicated wave kite it also jumps really good and is a lot of fun with the Twintip. In the larger sizes I use the Pivot. But small sizes of the Pivot (I had the 6 in the past) are also a good option. If you are in Europ...

Re: Affordable Kite - Highest Jump - Longest Hangtime

What's the wind & water like at your location? Flat water, short period waves or long period waves impact your options. Also, what's the dominant windspeed? First advice is of course to make sure the indian is optimized, so if your technique needs improvement, spend your money there for the highest ...

Re: Vision vs. Jaime vs. Monarch 2018

Both 2018. II haven't tried or read about the 2019 Monarch. I do know that the 2018 version is a bit more accessible than 2017 which was a lot stiffer in the mid sector.

Re: Vision vs. Jaime vs. Monarch 2018

Hi Andi, As it happens, I've compared the Monarch and Jaime Textreme just a couple of weeks back in my search for the perfect board. To be honest, I could've taken either and be happy with them. The key word for the Monarch is 'grip' . It just grips so well, has excellent upwind capabilities, pops r...
