Kids kite

Looking for advice on a kite ideal for young kids. My boys are 5 & 7. I've got a 15 year old 3m best 2 line trainer which they've flown before, but I don't find it ideal. That things been through the ringer, it doesn't relaunch, and tends to stall out, bridles maybe messed, I dunno. I'll be teaching...

Re: Rip curl flash bomb or e-bomb 4/3 for capetown?

I was down there mid nov. with a 4/3 Flash bomb. It's plenty of rubber. good for Bloubourg & Witsand, a bit overkill for Langebaan.
Never even close to cold.

Re: Kite apparel

the fourlines tees are pretty sweet.
Simple 1-2 word slogans that only kiters can relate to without looking cheesy.
"Donkey Dick" is my fav :lol:

Re: Foil board advice

I'm in love with my Airush team foil board 121 (3'11") 14.5L It's Carbon Innegra, bomb proof and super light! Perfect size, small, but not crazy pocket small. Still has a bit of volume to help in low end. comes in at 6.2 lbs, which is lighter than the dwarfcraft 110, and the airush has more volume t...

Re: Name Labels for lost gear

'Fourlines' gives away free customized lost board stickers when you buy a tee shirt or hat.
I use them on my board, never comes off. They look sweet too. ... e-loop-tee

Re: How to slow down the foil

Put the kite high and go straight downwind (usually folks think they are going downwind when they really aren't). Put the kite high and point as high to windward if you can. If your kite is lifting you and the foil out of the water you are flying to big of a kite. Unless your aim is to race, then p...

Re: Manera Magma Gloves vs Mystic Supreme Gloves

Last season I used 5mm Mystic Supreme gloves and while they were okayish warmth wise, the durability was abysmal and I had to throw them away after maybe 20 sessions. So now I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with Manera's Magma gloves and especially how they compare to the Supreme glo...

Re: Which Twintip?

Airush Apex for the win. fast, skatey (if you put smaller fins), cranks upwind, handles chop well. History on me and why I like it: I learned to kite on a wakeboard (coming from a wakeboard background). Then I got a liquid force Mission (which is practically a wakeboard!!!) Kept that for way too lon...

These lines were new this year, however, they have 100+ hours on em Haha(Dedicated bar/lines for foil, so low stress) I’ll try experimenting some more and keeping tabs what’s going on so I can...

Re: Airush 20-21 Collection

Session is good for hooked freestyle and soft kite loops. Put the fixed bridle on and it’s solid for unhooked. Would you say the new Session is closer to the former Wave or the former Diamond? I thought the Diamond was pretty good for unhooked freestyle, with decent boosting, light bar pressure, go...
