Re: Stop this thing

In my experience, riding underpowered as a beginner is hard: moving the kite to generate power results in uneven power surges which are difficult to control without developed balance skills on the foil. Having more power allows you to park the kite & have more consistent pull. Od course, too much po...

Re: Stop this thing

Hi all. Full foil ride today - yeah. I had that click moment. So my question is how do you stop the foil. It just seems to go faster and faster. I tried to head straight downwind and straight upwind and did not sense that it was slowing. The only thing that seemed to help is when I brought the boar...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

I can’t speak to the pivot which would be on my list of kites to try. But as far as the neo and evo, I picked the evo for waves. I sold my neos. I personally think some of the new 3 strut all around kites are very good in waves and have some advantages over the dedicated wave kites in real world wa...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

I ride Cabos. They are "dedicated wave kites". I have also ridden a 10m Pivot in waves. I would choose my 11m Cabo over the 10m Pivot for wave riding any day. However, Cabos suck for jumping, whereas the Pivot is great for jumping & also surprisingly fast turning for kiting in waves. I really think ...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Duotone Neo

OP what you describe is how I use my Pivots. Jumping and waves. Not sure if i believe the any kite smokes the pivot in drift as even kites built specifically for it are just marginally better. I think you'll hear people who has north kites recommended their kites and people who has naish kites reco...

Re: Moses 2019

I live in Hood River and like many here, support our local brand. That said, the LAST thing I want is for any brand to dominate the market. Innovation suffers, prices go up, and we lose. Talking of which ... what happening with LP? They don't seem to have come up with anything new for a long time. ...

Re: Moses 2019

Moses will be out of the market soon. Slinghot has stopped the cooperation with them, so it will be interesting to see the new developments being released as almost all of the wings were Slingshot designs. Moses makes one of the best foils you can buy. Slingshot is already behind Cabrinha in neat a...

Re: Trying to get into Kiteboarding is this a good deal?

Thanks everyone. I'm passing on this setup and found a local guy who is on this forum who is going to help me get a decent setup. There is a lot of good used gear available on ikitesurf & other online sources. What you need is the knowledge to pick what is appropriate for your purposes. That takes ...

Got some photochromatic glasses cheap from AliExpress to try on the water, but I just realized they might need direct exposure to UV to darken and I tend to wear hats ... anyone have experience with them?
There will be enough light hitting the lenses to darken them even without direct sunlight.
