Re: O'neil Hyperfreak vs NP Mission ?

Thanks for the input guys Now to see what deals I can score I am leaning towards the Hyperflex as this year's trip to CPT is only for 2-3 weeks and I live on Maui most of the year (warm water, no wetsuit required for me). If I dislike it I can just sell it. I wonder if I can get away with a Hyperfle...

O'neil Hyperfreak vs NP Mission ?

Hey guys, trying to decide on a wetsuit for a trip to CPT and am wondering if anyone has tried both of the following models: O'neil Hyperfreak 3/2+ FZ vs an NP Mission FZ 3/2 I have an athletic build (48" chest with a 36" waist) and big shoulders. Last time I went to CPT the best wetsuit I found was...

Best wetsuits for kiting 2020

Thoughts on the best wetsuits for kitesurfing in 2020? A few years ago I had a positive experience with a NP Mission 4/3 full suit while in CPT. Abit warm for my tastes though so I was thinking of doing a 3/2 full suit this January for a trip to CPT. Things I liked and things I would look for improv...

Re: Naish ditches octopus system.

guess Im not the only one then. Until last year my 2014 Torches were going strong. I recently cycled my entire quiver and while figuring out my new kites, I decided to try to get my 2014 8m and 10m TOrches back up and working. Neither will hold air :( I kept them in climate controlled storage althou...

Re: Duotone Rebel 2019

Found a better link to that vid: https://youtu.be/6xBlCF3qVt0 He had two loops that could be discussed as potential megaloops, the first around 1:05 (which he crashed) and the other around 1:34 which he landed. The first one needed a late loop, looked to me like he just did not have the height to fi...

Re: Duotone Rebel 2019

The Rebel does a great job with kiteloops and powered kiteloops. Megaloops on a newer Rebel is something I am working on atm in terms of a competition grade megaloop with a Rebel - I specifically mean bringing the kite to the same horizon level as the rider (so the rider as at the same height or alt...

Slingshot new model reviews?

Is Slingshot still a going concern? They introduced a new design, the Raptor, and modified their flagship kite, the RPM< to gear more towards the big air market. Is anyone riding these newer variations of kites? I have not seen newer RPMs or the Raptors in the air here on Maui and we see just about ...

Re: Best lines on the market

haven't owned liro lines but have had slingshot lines last a decade with 1000's of powered sessions on them Once upon a time Sliongshot lines were the best OEM lines; back in 2014 I LOVED my SS lines. I used to consider them the standard for a good lineset. Nowadays they are behind the times as mos...

Re: Need advice - Bridle line sheath worn out

Wow its been like five years lol I do recall the weirdness of this issue. It actually does not matter so long as you do it the same way on both sides (and yes I tested it). As a result, it does not matter if you are setting up upwind or downwind of the kite, so long as the red line is on front on bo...
