Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I do find it odd that we're not see videos of a 17m Aluula kite hanging along side a foil kite in very light wind and video showing how much faster it turns. Time will tell but it seems like a lost opportunity to market this stuff. I don’t think that’s odd- does ocean rodeo make a foil kite? If the...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

A lot of talking about the tearing properties of the material and little demonstration in flight....a little annoying to tell the truth, it would be more interesting to see the kite flying in very little wind and seeing how it reacts. I only hope that the other brands will develop similar matials a...

Re: Big rider looking for new harness

Try on a 2019/20 Mystic Majestic with a stealth spreader bar. They make XL and XXL and the stealth really stays put, the wings do work.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Is black the only color possible with this new material? Black kites are kinda ugly IMHO. The price is steep for the first generation which essentially will be an experimental testing version using the public.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

What's the latest on cost estimate for an Aluula kite vs say a 2019 made with conventional materials? 20% more, 50% more? Even more? Any news or best guesses?

Re: Newb 1st time B2 practice

Don't overdo flying a trainer. There is little carryover to a lei kite of average size, 9-12m. In fact, I think you should stop now. The end goal is to be comfortable flying real kite, not a whiz on a 1.8m.

Re: today's best universal bars?

I agree with matth, SS bars are built tough and are durable. their lines are excellent too. a bit on the heavy side but an excellent bar.
