Re: Is strapless overrated?

I've ridden strapless in a shit ton of conditions..up to triple overhead. My take is I bring straps when I want to jump, and when the waves gets above 2x overhead....or any time at OB. Because that beach just has too many waves in different directions and currents. Conditions should really dictate. ...

Re: Is strapless overrated?

:D :D haha that aeticle falls solidly into the who cares category. Ride what you want. Once thing about kiteboarding I like is to ride a variety of styles...I'll never be a pro at any of them, but I still love it. The only piece of information the author got right is that strapless does not fit ever...

Re: marc jacobs kota - pushed harder than anyone

in an interview with a judge it was not only 70% height, it was 70% height and extremity.. so marc should def be scored higher because it was surely 10/10 extreme.. same with jesse 70% Height “Go as hard and high as possible. The height in combination with extreme moves is priority, but we will als...

Re: new naish kite Triad

Be good to see... but 99% !... The Pivot was marketed as a "do it all", and is a a great kite, but it is bad at unhooked freestyle IMO. I don't unhook on a regular basis, so no problem for me if that is true. :-) It does everything else really well. I do think it has gotten a bit more aggressive in...

Re: Sam Light backstage at the KOTA

Yeah, i thought the same ... I guess it's obvious to them who's the best. It is kind of weird. I think they are rooting for Jessie, but they also say the Kevin has the height. Sam is also saying if he was a betting man he'd put his money on Kevin. I guess no doubt that they knew who was going to be...

Re: new naish kite Triad

Oooo exciting!!! Always fun to see new products coming out.

Btw if this is a 3 strut ride....or at least taking the spot / positioning of the ride it will be more geared towards sheet and go style kiting then what the pivot is.

Re: marc jacobs kota - pushed harder than anyone

Was marks trick impressive? yes. Did it get high scores. I guess not. Why? It didn't meet the main judging criteria which is height. It lacked height compared to the others. Its no RB's fault that Mark chose to showcase a lower level technical trick in a boosting comp. The rules are clear and well ...
