There’s a lot of variety in the sport and I think it is healthy, I’d like to see it show cased.

Re: Cheaper options for new-style surfboard pad (flat & grooved ala Duotone)?

I have used one of those for a front foot pad. Grip and durability seem to be fine. If you have coarse sand at your spot, it will get stuck in the grooves. I still prefer the diamond pattern grips.

Re: BRM Cloud vs Ozone Reo

Alright... I'll clarify my reasons for asking. I have been on the Cloud since the first generation. I love them as a wave kite, but I also love my heavily rockered surfboard. I don't ride hydrofoils, putting me in the minority for Cloud fans. Some of my favourite waves around here have really holey ...

BRM Cloud vs Ozone Reo

Hi all,

Interested to hear from anyone who has flown both the Cloud D or E and the Reo v4 or v5. The thing I'd be most interested in hearing about is which goes upwind better.

Thanks!

Re: Deck grip

Hexatraction was not good enough for me barefoot on a surfboard. I kept slipping off. My friend who owns the board rides it with booties, and that works for him.

Wax Mat sounds pretty interesting!

Re: Splicing kite lines for beginners

I used copper wire to make a lineset. It bends back onto itself nicely without breaking, but is plenty stiff to push or pull through as you are making your splices. I rounded off the ends of the wire to prevent it catching on strands. As others have said, definitely spend some time practicing before...

Re: Could someone please invent a better way to self land a kite in high wind.

I'm in the 90% self launch/land group. It's always a tether for me, unless the wind gets so ridiculously light that it won't pick the kite up off the beach (Cloud). Tether works great in high wind. I carry a spare tether line made from flying line with me in case I end up having to come in somewhere...

Re: North Nugget as foilboard?

A lot of people over here converted the nugget and similar boards (such as the space pickle) to foil decks. It works well. You need to reinforce the board around the box for the foil mast, though.
