Re: Join the cause - stop kite theft

Yes I'm in touch with the developer. He's a kiter from Rio de Janeiro and the English version it's almost ready. There's also a few improvements.

Re: Join the cause - stop kite theft

Online register would also help people who lost or forgot their gear on the beach. There was some situations, like: One year ago a friend had to release (brand new slingshot) and the leash broke in that moment. There was a few kiters on the beach and nobody catch his kite. His kite just disappeared ...

Re: Sometimes I wish I knew my speed

Depends on your budget. You could try Polar M430 or Garmin forerunner 35, both waterproof costing around U$130. But I didnt tried it, so I cant recommend. I have Garmin Fenix 5, its an expensive watch around U$450. Its suitable for any sport including kitesurf. I use it in downwind to know how many ...

Fone Mitu's Waveboard: don't buy it

Since the first model in 2015 (white/blue), I observed the large number of damaged fone boards in our spot. It didn't changed till nowadays. 2018 version still very fragile. All the boards got damaged in the same spot. Around and under the front pad it's very fragile. There's a different constructio...

Re: Havent been kiting for over a month..... Dont care!

I cancelled all other sports to not injure myself...if I get injured kiting I accept it. But not from any other sport. I sold my motorcycle cause of that. It was a very nice hobby btw. I had a dream to own a 1000CC super naked. Not anymore. Maybe I'm getting old? Maybe I'm getting a coward? Maybe I...

2019 Slingshot Material

2019 slingshot already available. They say in the website terms as "bomb proof surf tough construction" (sst kite) which is very common nowadays among the manufacturers. But looks like the canopy material it's the same... The same as always to be honest. This way they're one of the only major brands...

Ozone Reo 5m what a mess!!!

I'm a fan of REOs V4. Really good kites for wave. I own 5m, 7m and 9m V4. 8m and 10m V3. My quiver are basically all Ozone. But Ozone did terrible with the 5m. For me it was obvious that the ratio wasn't properly made in order to keep the performance of the bigger brothers. The kite is extremely fas...
