Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

Think the EVO is to powerful and not as good in the waves, I don't like that. Hence my search... I will test, but it is good to know other peoples experiences so I am better informed, hence my question. ; ) The NEO is even more powerful than the EVO. There is no such thing as a best kite for doing ...

The new click quick release is also the safest on the market currently way safer than the pin type iron heart ones.
Yeah... we've all seen that. :-? :-?

Re: Duotone Spirit Foil Range 2019

Hendrik- Sorry for the delay in response, been out of the office and just noticed this (you're always welcome to PM me, thanks Toby for the heads up)... 1. Yes, we found that the injection molded fuselage was not up to the stresses of SUP/windsurf foiling and would break more easily than we liked i...

Got it. There is no reason to be suspect and it's a great product. Thanks.
Let us know how the splitboard works out for you :D

Re: LEI power comparison with closed cell foil.

A myth that foils are more powerful than LEI It's not a myth. It's a fact. Foils allow designs with more projected area as just explained by Kitexpert. Otherwise I continuously been riding smaller sizes than guys on foils around me and they were on modern Souls, not something archaic. You are mixin...

Re: LEI power comparison with closed cell foil.

It has little to with LEI or Foil kite but more with the kite design (profile), your weight and your skill. Most modern LEIs and Foil kites in the size of 12m have enough depower to handle 22 knots or more. The more experience you gain, the more safe you will feel with bigger kites in those kind of ...

Re: North kiteboarding 2020

You are right, Toby. But the situation is quite different now than what it was like when Cabrinha took a share on the market. The Sport was still rather new and there still was innovation going on that companies could use as a unique selling proposition. He was there at the right time. Now, the mark...

Re: North kiteboarding 2020

I still wonder if a lot of people that have North kites today will buy the new North stuff. Duotone/old North is one of the most popular brands here. EVERYONE I know here who used to ride North kites switched to Duotone. No exception so far. The reason is always the same. You just know what you get!...

Re: Duotone 2020 bar with new lines?

well i was just talking to the North America Duotone distributor this weekend at the Fort To Battery race and he said if they changed the lines they would have to charge 800$ a bar and that it was not happening..... Don't believe that BS for a second. I replaced my North lines with Liros. They were...

Re: statement from Lou

Define a kite first? A kite is a wing surface that reacts against the wind to create drag. See, how blind are we. The 'thing' we call a kite is, well, a LEI. The 'thing' we call a foil kite is not a LEI but still a kite???? And than a single skin foil is a KITE as well? So a hard shell or skin will...
