Re: Big Air advantage to being heavy?

So I have a simple understanding why small kites are more difficult to land softly and its to do with the speed that they fly. In order to soften a landing you need to keep the kite flying in the air above your head - note flying and not stationary. Hence a heli-loop slows the rate of descent as lo...

Re: Big Air advantage to being heavy?

I lost a lot of weight a few years ago personally I feel like I boost higher now with less weight. I also needs less kite I rig smaller often it took some adjusting I used to go out with big kites in strong wind and it was fine now I have to size down. Smaller kites take off more aggressively but yo...

I second that. The Mako is as close to a surfboard you are going to find in the twintip world!

Re: Pansh Aurora III vs A15

Don't really have the money for a $2k kite right now. Was hoping for something $850 or below. I want a 15 because I already have a 13.5 and I think that the end range of the 15 may be enough to keep my 13 in the air. I think my light wind kite skills are okay, but nothing special. I'm hoping for so...

Re: Pansh Aurora III Vs A15

I have a Aurora 3 15m but I haven't tried the A15 I think the A15 should be more stable because it's lower aspect but the Genesis would be even more stable for foiling. Normally and inflatable kite should be more stable than a foil kite in super gusty wind however Liquid Force kites are very heavy s...

Re: Wanted: Liquid Force Mission Control Surf Chicken Loop - US

It's the same one used by Ocean Rodeo and probably many others.

Re: Pump Hose Replacement

I modified my WFMG to accept a regular black plastic hose from the small pumps that was like 5 years ago it's still going strong.

Re: Buying larger kite 15m vs 17m (Contra, Emotion, Juice etc.)

The high aspect ratio is a kite that the length versus width is a higher number you don't have to measure you just look at the kite and you know. A race kite like the Ozone Edge has a pretty high aspect ratio for an inflatable kite the reason that's good is because the portion of the kite generating...

Re: Buying larger kite 15m vs. 17m (Contra, Emotion, Juice etc.)

I have owned many 15m and 17m single struts 3 struts 5 struts 7 struts.. like the TheRussian said 15M is big for foiling on a large surf type wing but it's goof for freeride. Single struts are nice because they are ligth but they are almost always lower aspect kites so the wind range rigidity and tu...
