Re: How High can you go with 633-790 Moses wings

For jumping speed is the most important thing as this will give more power to your kite which is the main factor for height and hang time. So bigger slower wing not the best solution and that's without even mentioning landings. You nailed it. Speed! It's hard for me to break my usual habit of keepi...

Stitches won't hurt. But you probably don't need them.

Re: Fatality at Folly Beach

I heard that after they got the body on the beach they tried the QR. It had not be used but when they tried it, it worked. Apparently he just never pulled the QR. Remember to practice using your QR at least one a week or a month. It seems stupid, right? You are thinking "I know how to use the QR don...

Re: Should exist a way to quickrelease a board with Boots!

Yeah sure sounds like a gear failure of some sort. Like to see more footage. Straps are safer on megaloops but I definitely understand. I've always found ozone gear to be well tested and solid. Would not be surprised if Ruben was riding some failed prototype.

Re: Should exist a way to quickrelease a board with Boots!

You absolutely do not want a quick release for boots if they are anything like ski binding releases, pretty much the same reason you don't want them on a snowboard, you get one leg in the bindings and one leg out if they don't both release, so you would end up with more fractures.

Re: Legal Question ! Any Lawyers on Here?

there's raw sewage being dumped everywhere in the world you might be surprised if you went out and tested your local launch. As for the legality of dumping yes it's legal. If the water flow is above a certain amount, everyone is allowed to legally dump raw sewage, and each municipality gets to set i...

Strange concept for you I know, but all my kites work really nice and consistently from 17m to 6m. But hey, whatever turns you on.

Re: does anyone else care about linear bar response?

Why do you care? You should develop muscle memory so it just happens. Your arms do the right thing and it all happens by feel. I ride too many different kites different brands different years c kites bow kites foil kites so I can't really get that used to one brand that might be have some weird han...

Re: does anyone else care about linear bar response?

The recent Kite-Mag tests actually had a section for it called "linear power on sheet" or something like that. https://issuu.com/thekitemag/docs/tkm_ultimate_test_guide_complete_20 But no Ozone kites or boards. Yeah sucks they left out Ozone. I would also take their "best of" summary at the end wit...
