Re: Two quite quiver?

I used to be 100kg an Airush Ultra 15m works well for me from 6 knots to 15 on a low aspect foil and then I can use it up to 20 knots with a twintip. If you don't want to foil you will need a huge door and a huge kite like a 21m Flysurfer. It's way more fun with the foil! I also have Roca 9m awesome...

Re: Learning to foil, advice on short mast and kite.

I learned with the Airush Ultra it was designed for foiling and it's fantastic. There a lot of discussions about it on this forum. I think a 12m and a 9m would be good combo for most folks. I have a 15m too but I'm heavy and I do mostly super lightwind. I learned on a 60cm mast and then moved to 90 ...

Re: Best Foil for Absolute Beginner?

The Shinn foil is ridiculously easy to learn on. With the Jackson 145 board P wing and 60cm most people are riding in less than one hour often 15 minutes. It makes a great lightwind foil after that. You can ad a faster wing and long mast when you are ready to go faster.

Re: Cab Contra 2018 15m, do I need XXL bar to get quick turning?

I demoed the 15m Contra on a 52cm bar it turns reasonably well for a big kite it's not super fast but good for a 15m. A 60cm bar will make it turn faster but it also will require more pulling force so that may get your arms tired faster. I use a 50cm bar on my 15m GTS LW and it's more than enough bu...

Re: Split boards - worth the money?

The Kitelement split board is pretty much the price of a regular board and it's well made and not too heavy. I don't see the point of cutting a good board. All the home made split board I have seen so far were very heavy.

Re: refurbishing control bar handle

I built an 80 cm bar for a 22m foil since I could not find one big enough. I used bicycle handlebar foam tape. It worked great and it's very comfy. It started moving around after the initial install so I had to unwind it and put contact cement on the bar and reinstall it. Now it's been solid for a f...

Re: Kiteboarding in Veradero

This has been discussed many times before. Kiting is forbidden at the tip of the peninsula where the wind is onshore it is allowed further down where it is generally offshore. You have to pay a tax to kite there. This is why nobody goes there for kiting anymore.

Re: Shorten Naish Bar

You can get a nice short bar on eBay with soft molded ends. It's like 50$ (just the bar) Then just swap the bar and keep the long one for some larger kite that may require it in the future.

Re: Kite Marketing's dumbest names list

Might be just me, But Duotone. It makes my skin creep. North is just so strong, meaningful, better. I agree with Duotone being a horrendous name sounds like a cheap paint company. Whoever came up with that name didn't try very hard. I'm sure the kites are good but name would seriously make me recon...

Re: CR-X One design foilboard - NeilPryde

I have not used the foil since November, and did not take it with me South - I was concerned that it breaks when I foil and could cause injury. CRX is done, no more newer versions are coming. My understanding is that Cabrinha is bought by NeilPryde group, but I could be wrong. Warranty info on Neil...
