Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

Another point: When you have to cross whitewater a lot when heading out (like in Netherlands), then a pointy nose makes this much easier than the blunt "nose" of the Vader. Hydroshort will be intermediate here, I guess. And sorry, but I cannot leave one thing about the ProWam unwritten here: It is b...

Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

I´m pretty sure Vader and Hydroshort is too similar / too much overlap. I have a Vader 5.1 and a Duotone Pro Wam 5.10. For me, these boards perfectly complement each other. Vader for tricks and small waves (chest hight maybe), the ProWam for larger waves. In larger waves you (I) really want that sta...

Re: Why is everyone hating on old kites ?

Just recently I´ve discovered the Core Section1 for me (used). This model is already 6 (?) years old and new models are not available any more.
This kite is so perfect for my requirements! Really eye opening… you don´t always have to buy the latest shit to be happy!

Re: Tunnel Vision - Win a Cabrinha Drifter Kitesurfing Kite

Unimaginable what Keahi could do on a proper board! :o :D

Rather revealing that he´s on a Firewire SciFi when without a kite :lol:

Re: Help with beginner setup - but will ride 3 months nearly every day

DON´T buy at you-love-it.eu You will reget it very much! Their prices look super low. But you´ll probably never receive what you´ve ordered. That guys are friendly and knowledable and try their best, really. But unfortunately that shop is very chaotic when it comes to logistics and billing / handlin...

Thanks, this makes perfect sense to me. Still waiting to get my Peak in 5 m² :roll:

Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

The comparison with the 5.1 Vader is interesting for me as well. Anyone? I love the Vader for up to hip / chest high wind swell and particularly for jumping / tricks (sooo light!). For higher waves I have a 5.10 Pro Wam (a little large for me, but still absolutely fine, super smooth ride, very surfy...

Re: Carbon or prime ride engine harness question?

If the prime model is even heavier than the carbon/elite model, I´d choose the elite for this reason alone. I swapped my old 2016 carbon model with the current 2020 carbon model, same size. The weight of the 2020 model is 900 grams higher! Insane! It feels like a tank (weight-wise) compared to the 2...
