How will Covid impact kite brands and shops?

I was thinking about purchasing a new quiver this year of Ocean Rodeo Aulula kites, but due to the shelter at home orders and severe contractions in my business I am going to forego this purchase. I’m likely not the only one in this position. I’m wondering how many brands and shops that are over-lev...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Yeah my buddy flew one and although the wind was too light to work with even a foil, the kite still stayed aloft and didn’t backstall when nothing else, including a larger Cloud, would fly.

Re: Next big thing (Boards Off)

I agree. I focused on wakestyle for years, but now I just love going big and working on various board off tricks which contrary to what other wakestylers may think are not easy. Go big!

Re: Introducing the Aluula Project - The Evolution of Light

With a 3 strut 12m Flite weighing in at 1.8kg there seems to be no reason for a 1 strut kite with Alulla as shaving .4kg or so won’t make substantial difference in winds you can ride, plus one struts lack the performance of 3 strut kites once the winds pick up.

I can’t wait to get a 12m flite. My new home spot is at 5100 feet elevation in the mountains and is typically somewhat gusty. Having a kite that can still fly when it drops below 8 for periods at a time yet be stable in gusts of 20+ will be a game changer for me.

Re: Best boosting light wind kite

The new Ocean Rodeo Flite with alulla is looking like a pretty good candidate too. It's supposed to be much lighter than this years flite (in the range of a cloud of the same size).
