The 14 Razor is for a heavy weight to use when others are on 10 or 12 m kites. A light wind kite for the average weight rider would be the Ocean Rodeo Flite. 14.5 m kite.

The 14m Switchblade is not a lightwind kite, is used by fat boys when the rest of us are using 12m or less. At 70kg a 12m (or 13m) is the right next size up from your 9m Switchblade, and as said earlier, preferably a 3 strut kite.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I may be completely wrong, but with my Flite 14.5 Aluula I felt pretty much the same thing about not needing to use much trim, but put it down to the more rigid airfoil combined with the pulleys which automatically adjust the AOA. I normally fly Ozone Enduros which have no pulleys, which I really li...

Re: Kiteboard Size 136 or 138

Imo the board is still to big for your weight.. What's the width of the X-ride? Consider keeping the X-ride and get a smaller board, like 133x40, and see what you ride the most.. And yes going smaller is a huge difference. This ^^^. I have Lieuwe Shotguns so unsurprisingly I would recommend a Shotg...

Re: Control Bar Advice

Primary setup: Slingshot kites with a Slingshot control bar (2015 era or so). Butttt...I just bought a Duotone Mono. I was told I could use the slingshot control bar (low-V) with the Duotone kite, although it is not ideal. Is this true? If no, I feel like I have two options: 1. Buy a Duotone Click ...

Re: NKB/Duotone trust bar front line lengths

All this mucking around with line lengths, split heights, and all the rest of it merely confirms that low V equal length 4 line kites is and always was the way to go.

Matt from REAL did such a comparison here. of course REAL is a dealer, so that must be kept in mind. nonetheless, i found it informative.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but (iirc) Real Watersports only became Ocean Rodeo dealers after having demoed OR Aluula kites.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

2- out of the bag, small frustration... knots and loops are reversed compared to my click bar... i installed some pigtails directly on the kite to be able to keep the bar compatible with my Neos Please don't take this as a personal attack, but I find it hilarious that a part of your feedback about ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

7. Compatibility with other bars than OR: besides pig tail configuration and single front line safety, are there other specific details to watch for in a bar/line sydtem to work well with the roam kite? Bar throw, depower system length? I run on Flysurfer bars and a modified snow/HF bar which can b...

Re: Ozone Enduro V3 Release Date ?

I recently sold my November 2017 Enduro V2 6m/8m/10m and replaced them with July 2020 Enduro V2 7m/9m*. I was surprised to find that although they are obviously the same design, the 7m and 9m fly even better than the older Enduros. I have a serious doubt that they would make modifications between v...
