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

@flaps1111 - Not answering for Peter but I can say I LOVE my 6m Ultra - have never had a bad session on it. I am running 12/10/8/6/4 Ultras currently, there is quite a bit of overlap to be honest. I am 80kg. For me on a Groove Skate and 800 or 1000cm2 wing the comfortable wind range for the 6m is fr...

Re: statement from Lou

@longwhitecloud Lack of interest in foil racing? Current event in Italy with 87 male competitors , and 30 females? And a young French ex TT racer in the top 10 after day 1? Sorry to say but case closed bro. 100 racers says you are wrong as far as they are concerned. Foil racing is here to stay, with...

Re: The Duotone wing

@jfoil, its nice to hear some feedback from someone who has actually used this product, thanks. Am i right in thinking it is mainly being used as an alternative means of propulsion to a paddle for a SUP board with a large surf foil , as opposed to a kite foilboard? All the videos I have seen with a ...

Re: Flysurfer Soul vs Ozone Hyperlink V1 - Video Comparison

@prfctChaos, when is the Hyperlink v2 due out? There is zero mention of it on the Web- maybe you know something that the rest of us don't?

Re: F-One Bandit Bladder Nipples are shit

@kjorn, yes I have had a handful of instances of exactly this on my F One Furtives - not complete breaks though, just cracks around 5mm long in the position you indicated, leading to loss of pressure in the strut. Best and cheapest fix for me was just using superglue to seal the crack, replacing the...

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2019

What's wrong with the GKA and IKA - surely they both know something about kiteboarding? Expression-type events and racing events covered between them. I wasn't kiting back then ( was windsurfing) but I distinctly recall the" chicken loops are for sissies" arguments from years ago. Utter BS. Things m...

Re: Raising the rocker

120 - was the only size they had earlier in 2018. I forgot to say that I was also very inspired by Gunnar's videos.

Re: Raising the rocker

Not quite in the home-made vein , but I can say that in my opinion Michele at Groove has absolutely nailed it with the Skate - absolutely frickin LOVE mine, one of my favourite pieces of kiting gear. The substantial nose rocker is so forgiving in heavy chop , waves and when touching down at speed yo...
