Re: Introducing the World's Lightest and Strongest Kites - Aluula

The video suggests that the 10m is not a particular grunty kite. So that does not confirm the stories that a 10m will be pulling like a 12m. it says he has been out on the 10 when 12m where falling out of the sky... I can confirm i experienced the same thing when I demoed the roam aluula on a foil ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Well... being part of the few people who actually got to fly the aluula roam 10m last fall (on an hydrofoil), I must say I’m very eagerly waiting for the general availability of this material. Based on my few hours flying the kite it will be a decent replacement for both my 12m soul and 10m neo. So ...

Re: Ketos Foilers - What boards are you riding

Pierrot Sounds like you would not give up the 130 and go with the 107 only, is that correct? If I had to keep one I would keep the 107 over the 130. I was not able to try before buying the 107 and was afraid it would be too small. But it is definitely not an issue. Also i built 2 homemade boards - ...

Re: Ketos Foilers - What boards are you riding

I started to ride the 107 last season and it is an awesome little board. For me stance is great and you can actually have quite a wide stance without it feeling weird because of the rocker/scoop. It is so light that you can really feel the difference when riding. Also very good when touching down an...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I wonder why at the moment only OR seems to be really into the game with aluula. If I'm not wrong it's not something they own exclusively, so why none of the big fishes jumped in? Are they waiting to see if it works at OR expenses (maybe OR in their vision is not a "dangerous" competitor)? Other co...

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...
