Re: Fatality in Lanzarote, Spain

Any instructor worth his salt should have explained that the water is a safer place to be because it absorbs impacts. IKO trains instructors that virtually all of the injuries in kiting occur on the beach or on land because thats where there are obstacles (like rocks) and hard surfaces that can hurt...

Re: Guys, need help with Duotone kite size

From 10-14 kts the Rebel is not the best kite, wait for one of the new Aluula 15m Juices. It will make a huge difference in wind that light. The Rebel is well supported but the extra struts make it heavy in the air, which starts to kill performance in wind speeds below 14 kts. In 14-20 kts, a 13m Re...

Re: Adding a Big Air kite to my quiver

I thought the Orbit was awesome but its too far out skill wise for this poster (7m jumps = pure vanilla boosting). You need skill to utilize the Orbit - even instructors who tested it lacked the correct skill level. If a kite REQUIRES good kiteloop knowledge and skill as well as solid loading/poppin...

Re: Adding a Big Air kite to my quiver

If you get a Duotone Rebel simply buy the Duotone Click Bar. The high Y can be changed to a standard low split while you are on the beach and it only takes 60 seconds. The V Distributor is very easy to take on and off to switch the bar between Duotone and non-Duotone kites. The Rebel is super friend...

Re: Adding a Big Air kite to my quiver

At 100kg a 144 Spectrum is neither super huge nor heavy. The Mako King can jump HUGE but those landings are going to take it out in your knees. I used to own one and was impressed with jump height however its not ideal for landing impact. I hit my all time highs on 142 and 145 boards jumping up abou...

Re: Adding a Big Air kite to my quiver

Would recommend you a Duotone Rebel or Core XR7. The Ozone Edge can also be made to work. I weigh ~96 kg at the moment and love Big Air, hitting jumps in the 15m-16m range. If you are hitting 7m jumps, an Intermediate booster kite like the Rebel or XR7 will help you progress alot while giving you a ...

Re: mixing Bars and Kites

The Duotone Click bar can be adjusted to work as a standard low V bar.

Using a Duotone high V bar with a different brand may impavt the kites flying performance.

Re: T Handle?

Ahhh what a shame

I jury rigged my own approach - see pic - but would have liked a high end solution.

T Handle?

Hey Toby,

Are you planning on selling more T Handles anytime soon (oe ever?)

I jury rigged my own raised handle with some small wood blocks and drilling a hole thru them to raise the handle an extra inch, but your t handle is a more elegant solution.

Re: Duotone 2021

Here I can offer some feedback as I recently got one of the mew trust bars with the newer line materials. I put about 10 sessions of 1.5-3hrs each loading up full power (40-50 ft jumps with powered kiteloops) for a 214lb man. Lines were crispy, responsive, did not stretch and did great overall. Asid...
