DuoTone Juice vs Mono weight?

I am considering upgrading my North 12m mono which weighs 3.2kg to the new DuoTone Juice 12m and I’m wondering how much more (or less) the new Juice weighs. Thanks for the intel as this will be my lightwind foil kite

What do pro kiters do once kite career is over?

I’m curious, since there is not a lot of money to be earned as Professional kite boarder what do these althletes do after they are no longer paid to travel and kite? What careers besides teaching kiting do they persue? What happened to guys like Yoori Zoon, Flash Austin, Lou Wainmann, etc?

Re: Day 1 Finished - King of the Air 2019 - all info here

I think the KOTA demonstrates that there is no reason to own or manufacture 5 strut kites. Can anyone see any benefit of flying a non-C 5 strut kite? 3 strut kites (ie Pivot, Dice, FX) boost bigger and loop in high winds just as well as any 5 strut kite.

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

How does boosting on the Ultra compare to the Mono? I currently own a 12m Mono and love boosting on a foil but I'm underwhelmed with the boosting ability of it. Would the Ultra provide better height and hangtime in 12m winds?

Tulum kite sizes - 9m needed?

I’m heading to Tulum and have a 12m mono, a foil and a twintip packed. Is there any need to bring a 9m? Does it ever blow over 22mph this time of year?

Re: Kitesurfing Maui - early February

Good luck with February in Maui. Last time I went in winter for 16 days and had wind to only kite 2 days (of course it was windy before I arrived and after I left :)). One day I was on a 14m and the other on a 10m and twintip. I'd say April through early November is much more reliable. However, brin...

Is it true no kiting on Playa Del Carmen beaches?

Can one kite in the hotel zone at Playa Del Carmen? My friend told me the police were cracking down including at cocoa beach. What’s the word with kiting there?
