Re: wind range 9m hyperlink

I'm 78kgs on a P foil. I fly my 7m LEI from 14 knots to low 20s. I don't like to be uncomfortably powered on a foil. I think you'd need to go down to a 5m (or smaller) from 20 knots on the P-foil. Out of interest, you might find that changing to the k-wing might be cheaper than a kite and get you th...

Re: Action Cams in 2019 whats everyone using

Yeah. Sorry about that. GoPro seem to be the only company doing waterproof action cameras without requiring an external case so the fusion might be an option (actually it seems the Garmin virb 360 is also an option) if you can find the extra cash. I'm not aware of the fusion really lacking any featu...

Re: Action Cams in 2019 whats everyone using

I am curious about the Insta 360x cam. I just saw a really awesome snowboard clip on Youtube shot on the Insta. I could see some kite applications there too. I have the insta 360 one (previous generation so limited feedback I know) and the main problem with that one is getting the case to map prope...

Re: Prevent body rotation

Don't put your kite at 12 whilst you are putting the board on. Leave it off centre and you'll find it easier to put your board on:

This video covers it (watch to the end to see an example of the problem you described)

Re: Big Air/Kiteloop Progression Kites

Out of interest, whats wrong with your Neos? I haven't tried the latest versions, but the '14-'17 Neos jumped pretty high. The loops aren't powerful but thats not a problem when learning the timing. They are poor in terms of hang time so you need to be a bit more precise with your timing for soft la...

Re: Duo-north-tone :)

Yeah. Similar things all over the place. The PIQ app has been rebranded for Duotone but the emails that are sent out are still North Branded with the old colorscheme.

Re: Foils that don’t sink. How much of a problem is it

Haven't noticed a big problem with foils that sink very slowly. Bad points seem to be that you have to body drag upwind more as the foil doesn't drift downwind as quickly (until it sinks). They still get in your lines so try not to let go of the board. The ones I have tried are all lighter which is ...

Re: North Prototype

Looks a lot like the peter lynn navigator control bar. I'm interested to hear about the dealer network. I can't see NTG deciding that online is sufficient for their brand? B&M have built up a good dealer network that they retained when they rebranded (and you wouldn't want the hassle of dealing with...

Re: How big of a problem is this? (Cut in plastic cover of flag line, Core)

Difficult to say from that photo. But the questions I would be asking myself are: 1. Can I see any evidence of damage to the rope inside. Or more importantly - Can I see that there is NO damage to the internal rope (ie the rope is definitely undamaged) 2. Is there ANY danger of the bar sticking when...

Re: North Prototype

I wonder what the names of their models will be. Judging by their marketing behaviour (North Kiteboarding has been a global market leader and one of the world's favourite kiteboarding brands since 2001. ) variations as close as they can get legally with the Boards and More names ;) Any more Suggest...
