Re: New Wetsuit Skunk stink....

Tried everything ,,this Skunk is not going away..It infects everything it comes in contact with..Trust me ..you will know when you have one of these suits...It will even make you nausea...... A funny detail I noticed was that the smell went away after washing machine wash, but got back after while ...

It’s nice to have the live feed, but seriously, what the hell is going on with the camera person?
Must be the first time he sees kiteboarding :D

Re: New Wetsuit Skunk stink....

I had this in my Mystic battle jacket... gsus, the smell is so STRONG. I tried everything from washing to freezing it, but nothing really helps, finally threw it away. One local store stock Mystic stuff and that part of the store smells terribly. I tried to ask about this issue directly from Mystic,...

Re: Frustrated with an NV in lightish wind and foiling, am I just bad?

At 170lbs you should be able to ride 12m NV/Envy in 10 knots, especially with a foil. Liquid Force kites have been traditionally on a heavier weight which much be one of the factors. Another factor is if average is 10, the lows are less than that and it would take some extra kite control skills, si...

Re: Frustrated with an NV in lightish wind and foiling, am I just bad?

It should be ok in 13mph, but in 10mph you really need expert level flying skills to keep it going (like with almost every 3 strut 12m kite I suppose).

Re: King of the Air speculation and predictions

I’d like to see a change in judging from 70% height/30% extremity to 50%/50%, but it is not going to happen. (IMO Jesse’s style of riding should be awarded) I think that many riders were pushing their own style of big air last year and maybe didn’t pay enough attention to judging criteria. Liam Whal...

Re: Eleveight FS 2020

Hows the hang time on the 2020 8m FS - has it really improved or is it just marketing? That was the only thing I disliked about the previous years... Can't comment 8 but with my 12 it has got slightly better. I would say that the hangtime is quite impressive for that kite shape, but of course it's ...

Re: Eleveight FS 2020

I got to try the new 2020 FS 9m this week here in Tarifa and man this thing really elevates you! Rock solid construction (I always pump my kites around 8-9psi) which can handle 25-30kt gusts and I really like the different settings for the bridle. For me the "Pivot" mode was the sweet spot with the...

Re: North Orbit - iksurfmag less than glowing review

related to the pulleys... look at the product clip of the doutone dice, the designer says he removed the pulley because it was causing instability when looping on the height end of the wind range https://youtu.be/Hc3em8HbgPA?t=44 pulleys just suck I find it interesting that so many big brands has g...
