BRM Clouds arbitrage opportunity

Since Greg stopped selling Clouds outside of US has anyone considered reselling BRM Clouds to other countries? I am sure there would be plenty of customers interested worldwide and there are probably some money to be made considering discounts 35% when you purchase 5 sizes at a time. Perfect startup...

Re: Best Wetsuit for kitesurf? 4/3

For me the best are Ripcurl wetsuits especially the flashbomb range and I like them for the quality of E5 neoprene, warmth and fit. Zipless version provides better range of movement but frontzip is easier to get in/out so it is personal preference. I do also like Ion Strike Select range for its warm...

Re: Foil tangled in lines

During last session had a situation when after a crash I ended up with a foil between my lines. Kite was still in the air stable when I was holding the bar with one hand but I could not unwrap the lines from the foil with the other hand. When I tried to use both hands kite started looping and had t...

Re: The Ultimate Wetsuit !?

Biggest disappointment over the last few years has been O'Neill wetsuits. I had Psycho 1 3/2, and Psychotech 4/3 and they failed on seams and leaked badly shortly after being wet. Also, the thickness of the new Technobutter 3 neoprene is a joke. 4/3mm Psychotech is thinner than my old Ripcurl 3/2. T...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Looks like in 2018 RE wants a piece of the hydrofoil cake as well. They now have rebranded Slingshot Hover Glide foil on offer http://www.rideengine.com/GEAR/surf-foil/Futura-Surf-Foil.html and it looks very similar to this Chinese knockoff with less sexy paint job if anyone is interested https://xm...

Re: Storm voyager 4

The hight of Y is relevant in regards to overall front lines length. From a simple trigonometry point of view angle of attack of the kite that flies on the high Y setting will be different than on low V setting assuming the front lines are of equal length and the bar is positioned the same. This can...

Re: Storm voyager 4

That one looks much better then the Light-Speed i had, which the guy i sold already sold it again... Hi Pedro, It is me who you sold the kite to. And indeed, only after a short period of time, I sold it as it was not good for me for what I needed. I was looking for a kite to use below my 9m Gong st...

Re: Freeride, strapless foil advice

...Before Spitfire, I had old MHL Lift 2013 foil with low aspects wings... ... ... During my first sesh I was surprised when instead of foiling I entered mechanical bull phase and I could not figure out why. Then I realised that I needed to forget what it was like on my low aspect foil as I could t...
