Re: Dice 2020 vs Evo 2020 for kiteloops

I think the answer to this will depend on how far along learning to do kiteloops you are already. If you are already looping the kite in other circumstances (during transitions, landing loops etc) and regularly hitting 10m jumps then probably the dice will be better. If you are just starting to get ...

Re: Duotone Juice 2020

I have never used a Juice or a Mono. But it is confusing for me that two kites with very different shape and design (3 struts, High Aspect Ratio / 1 strut Medium-Low Aspect Ratio) are directed toward the same rider for the same use and marketed as a "Low Wind kite / Foil kite". But it is the same t...

Re: Boosting Kite that Wave Rides

Maybe take a look at Blade Triggers. They have a wave setting and also boost. Out of interest have you tried them on waves? I had one that I enjoyed riding with on a twin tip and it boosted fairly well but it didn't drift as well as I expected (at least on a hydrofoil). The wave setting seemed to c...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Just ordered a pile of seeds etc to grow my own food hopefully will have some kind of crop in 4 months. DO NOT underestimate what might be coming. What did you go for? It's on the late side for a number of crops to get a high yield. Most of my peak season crops went in a month ago but then we only ...

Re: Boosting Kite that Wave Rides

Do any of these wave kites have good hangtime?

The neos I have ridden tend to drop you (particularly in the smaller sizes) if your technique isn't quite right. The eleveight RS was better but still short of the best (rebel /xr5 /edge)

Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

that no one has any resistance to. False. :nono: FAKE news! :angryfire: I am not a medical professional but from what I understand Covid 19 is a totally new virus, only people who have caught this and recovered have anti-bodies for it. I also have an idea that because it is something that has recen...

Re: freeride board for boots?

Take a look at the shinn ronson. Nice board. There's a size chart for choosing boots or straps but at your weight you'll want the largest size anyway. But it doesn't have a grind base if you want to ride obstacles. Mine has held up well but I have to be careful to walk into the water before putting ...

Re: Products you need !

I need a much easier to disconnect set of line extensions. Took me nearly 10 minutes and a set of pliers to remove the set I currently have :oops:

Something that doesn't tangle and is front line bar trim compatible!

Re: Jumping and understanding the takeoff

^^ a good succinct explanation, although I find the concept of holding the edge a bit of a weird way of looking at it with respect to jumping imho! The only time I would just hold an edge would be doing it as an exercise in control and I think it would feel lame to me. In real terms I would always ...

Re: Jumping and understanding the takeoff

In answer to your question (and I'm not that good anyway), the kite control is more difficult when not popping. This is because I'm generally travelling at a faster speed when loading the lines and holding the edge, so the kite tends to travel further behind and I end up swinging off the kite (Len10...
