Re: climate change /unpredictable weather

Things have indeed always been changing, but never at this rate, things are moving ridiculously fast when you zoom out on the timescale. And people should really look at the bigger picture also from a global and social point of view. Killing off wildlife diversity and over-extracting our limited nat...

Re: gathering experience Ozone Reo V4 or V5 VS F-One Bandit X or XII or XII

1 is a dedicated wave kite that will drift nice and be excellent in waves, while the other one is an all rounder that will do a bit of everything but will outperform the other one in boosting and freestyle. So strange comparison to make - better to compare Bandit and Enduro...

Re: climate change /unpredictable weather

The weather and wind patterns are definitely changing. I remember in Belgium we used to get plenty of strong West winds/storms during the season with nice waves, but these are becoming rarer and rarer. Instead, we seem to get a lot more southerly winds, which are weaker and off shore. There is a gra...

Re: Duotone Mono 2019

Looks super low AR. Gonna be grunty with drift but doubt that it will get you upwind easily on a TT or surfboard in it's lower end... Less important on the foil though.

Re: Naish Dash

There's been a few posts already describing the Dash in detail, you can research those. I personally am a big fan of the V1 8m. When powered up, it's a boosting machine. Compared to the Pivot, you need to get your timing right on the Dash. But when you do, you will go at least as high. Less float/ha...

Re: What lightwind kite should I choose for a small rider?

@Peter, yes it is where most of us end in our light wind journey, and we almost all go through it. I too went TT, bigger TT, surfboard, 17m Fat Lady, nugget, foil. And now multiple foils :-). Now my biggest kite is a 12 (but mostly out on 9) and the 17 and bigger TTs have been sold. Nugget is collec...

Re: What lightwind kite should I choose for a small rider?

I know it's not what you want to hear, but forget about riding TT or directional in less than 10 knots - you won't be doing decent jumps or tricks, and it's just not fun after a while. All you can maybe do is mow the lawn. And if you do enjoy just cruising around, you will love flying. So save yours...

Re: Whats happening with King of the Air?

Firstly, they should just have camera's at the water line - why they film all the action from up on the parking lot goes beyond me, the jumps look way less impressive than they really are. Secondly, I think they should organize a second, smaller, very last minute event, called "Man of the moon" or s...
