Re: duotone nugget vs pro fish in light wind

Hi Schluck Ive ridden the 5'2 TT nugget since it came out in light winds in Darwin , Oz . 85 kgs and commonly on 12 neo or 17 Zephyr . And a few months ago I bought the Fish 5'5 . We only use gear which works best in our light conditions 8 knots is just doable on Nugget but on a big kite with a smal...

Re: Duotone Pro Fish

Just saw this so though it might be useful to others to post , expecially as I have the 5'5 ... most seem to go for the smaller one I have spent a fair bit of time on the 5'5 now over the last few months and I can understand where both Lucas and Metteo are coming from. This is my journey so far with...

Re: The Most Powerful Kitesurfing Wave Kite - Duotone Neo Review

Love my Neos . We are based in Darwin Australia . Light skinny tropical winds are standard . Many of us ride surfboards and foils and the go to kite is 9m Neo. Then a 14 or 15 m . The 9 seems to be a magic mix of grunt and speed to get up on the foil at the lower end of its wind range and you can du...

Re: Duotone Juice 13m - how's the real low end compared to 12m Rebel or XR6?

I am similar the Baxter , I have the 15m Juice , 12 Neo , 9 Neo , 7 Neo for surfboard and foil You are asking about bottom end ... I dont have any experience with the XR6. The rebel would more likely have a better bottom end than the Juice design as its made for boosting and freeride , the Juice is ...

Re: Duotone freefoil 2018 vs Duotone spirit carve 2019

My 2 bobs worth , and I agree with my learned friend Puetz kindly gave me a good go on the new carve 950 . :-) . I had really good fun on it , much moreso than if it was the speedster . I have ridden both the North Speedster and I currently ride the Jshapes cruzer and freestyle foils with 120 board ...

Re: Flying footswitch learning time

I can now change feet on both sides without any problem . On jshapes foils around 800 to 950cm2 For me , the keys things are ; Kite fairly neutral feet and hips pointing forward to take out extra movements. Start with more weight on the back foot so the front foot is unweighted. This makes it easier...

Re: Gath Helmets with Visor

I have worn gath helmets since they came out . Is it 30 years ? :o Windsurfing and kiting. So far 4. The first one had an adjustable visor and the others with a partial one. The adjustable visor was a bit restrictive when down , you can’t see through it that well as it gets covered in spray. But you...

Re: WtF man. Will I ever learn transitions...?

Bigger foil will certainly help. For me ... I gybe first and go toeside My focus is then on getting comfortable , level out the board , kite high but not much line tension , fairly upright body, feet pointing in same direction as the board ... and step off the BACK foot to the front from above the m...

Re: Changing the way you jibe?

If you want to change , you need to figure out what you do on your strong transition side against your weak transition side. I had a big difference on either side. And I come from windsurfing , which requires a more balanced transition of both sides. But i think it’s really important to be able to d...
