Re: Kite for waveriding

No I did not had the chance to trie a Ultra but it would be an option with the upside that I can use the bar I have. Over the years I figured the same brand bar works the best.. Can you give me some more infos on the Ultra? like windrange and your weight, what board ..... I am no such a North fan e...

Re: Kite for waveriding

Hi, I use North Neo 11m which is grunty and versatile (and you may actually be able to use a smaller size). I have been able to surf decent size waves with it and although clearly not as quick as my 8m it is quick enough. I think it is all about the kiter adapting to the lower turning speed and some...

Re: Quiver Simpicity

+1, keep it simple. But this requires knowing very well what you need and that the specific quiver actually delivers what you expect. If you are spot on on both you do not need much. I have the impression that some people seem to like their quiver to always be more or less around the sweet spot and ...

Re: Harness with Sliding spreader bar

I own a Manera Exo harness with a classical hook which I use for kiting and windsurfing. To relief stress on my body when going switch stance or when surfing I let the harness rotate around my waist. It makes a considerable difference. I always wondered if this was an intended trait of this harness...

Re: Nugget or Pro? (North)

I used to have a Nugget and switched to Slingshot Celeritas after several months of parallel use. The Celeritas gets on a plane fairly early (noticeably better than the WAM) and there is not a big difference in comparison to the Nugget in marginal conditions but it turns much better and is still goo...

Re: New Foam Pad for my Slingshot Celeritas Surfboard

Thanks a lot. All of the sites have something that suits me. I would go for diamonds shape pads.

New Foam Pad for my Slingshot Celeritas Surfboard

Hi I am looking into the possibility of refurbishing my blue Slingshot Celeritas. The original pad is starting to look ugly and I was wondering if anyone has been able to find the original blue/green Eva pads somewhere? I have not been able to find it on the official web nor on any other web. Any su...

Re: Inverted Kite

It has happened to me a few times but not for awhile. I suspect that most of the times it is the pilot's error or pushing it too much. I am no expert but most of the times I have found a way to reverse the inversion without going back to the shore nor punching out. Maybe I was just lucky. What I hav...
