Re: Pocket board building

Do you know a place where you can buy Airex sheets online in canada or US?
I have been building boards with cheap foam from DIY stores but would like to try Airex (or similar light, high density foam) on the next one.
Thanks!

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Seems like the plan is moving forward. I’m really surprised we have not heard about other brands coming up with a product matching the aluula material. After flying an aluula Roam, i know I’ll get a 10m aluula kite next season... but would have prefered to stick with my Neo :D From latest OR news Le...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I have no idea how the kites I saw got « scratches »... and those are demo kites that probably don’t receive the love they deserve... but I’m sure we would be seeing tons on negative comments if OR was releasing $3000 kites getting cosmetic problems with normal use. So this is where their launch str...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I tested the « Roam 10m black » this afternoon on my Hydrofoil (ketos pocket board 107 and front wing « wave xl »). I first spent 90mn with my Neo 10m and then 90mn on the Roam aluula. Wind was about 12knt average but more 7 to 15knt. On a lake. I must say some of the marketing claims are true and I...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Increased power per meter, increased reactivity/turning, increased power delivery, there will be a bit of a recalibration of kite sizes to wind ranges. Of course it's my hope that the top end is also improved with increased stiffness, and that the depower is enough to keep up so you don't lose teet...

Re: North Kiteboarding Meeting in Daklah

Nice range... but seems quite ordinary. Hard to see if there is any real innovation beyond the usual marketing. I wish they had managed to come up with something really different, like the aluula material. Powerful brand with true innovation would have been a killer... I’d still like to try that Car...

Re: Twintip damage can I repair it? Gash 5 cm

I have a Naish Motion 138 (exact same board as yours) that suffered the same kind of damage in 2 places: front and back fins on the left side. It likely met the weels of a luggage truck when going to Turks and Caicos... I patch it up with epoxy and a layer of fiber glass on top of the damaged areas,...
