Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Over a year is a long time. it gets shorter as you get older (even though 2021 kites are only 6 or so months away before dealer showings etc. ) but that wasn't the question: I wonder, how come no other brand even mentions that they will be making aluula kites? they probably could buy the same mater...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Aluula is a separate company that will be selling material to all kite brands right? I wonder, how come no other brand even mentions that they will be making aluula kites? they probably could buy the same material today just like Ocean Rodeo. Perhaps waiting to see what happens in the market, perha...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

That brings up another point, aluula appears to be highly water repellent in some pictures with water beaded up on it vs absorbed somewhat like dacron can do. Can anyone confirm that this is the case? Seems like another potential benefit, although I think someone mentioned the possibility of water ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

But I thought a lot of kites this year were being designed to allow them to twist to help responsiveness and yet this material is claiming to make the frame stiffer? Something just doesn’t add up. Be good to demo one once they are in UK, but I’m not convinced you will get a 12m kite as responsive a...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

... No gnarly footage yet sorry, mother nature is not playing the game, but hopefully the West Oz crew can put something together for us. You should send some demo kites here the East OZ (Melbourne). We get wind almost every day (in between the fires and floods and hail storms). PS Don't care about...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

https://vimeo.com/387205039 A video I found on the internet. These are going to be the bomb for foiling. All the low end without sacrificing the top end. I could see myself needing only one for 80+ % off my riding. Wind was very very light. We actually only put the kite up to see if it would fly. O...

Out of 1000, this is how much this material will effect your riding > > > You will be poorer.
Agree in most cases mate, but with this one I have to disagree.

The confidence you have in this kite in staying in the air can help you in those times when you're usually "will I - won't I"

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I've had the Aluula Roam 10m here for a few days now, albeit in light winds, and a few peeps have had a run on it now, twintippers, SB and foilers. All the feedback is the same, light, quick and responsive, super smooth, fantastic kite. Wave riding and foiling is going to be crazy on this kite, it ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

my 10M's are plenty fast (turning) enough, so i could never justify that price for them. but i've never flown a fast 12M, they're all dogs, and here's where the aluula might be worth it. would have to try before buy though, so hope they do some demo tours with the stuff. Yeah there's some bigger gu...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Been using kites that "float" since forever. Welcome. Never new you couldn't see something in a photo,but do continue. Have you thought of a career in climate science? I'm not arguing foils vs LEI or climate change. :remybussi: You can see it in a photo sure, tbh I was a bit under impressed when I ...
