Re: Every Major Brand Announcing an Aluula Kite in 2020!

Ocean Rodeo worked with the company who makes Aluula to develop it I suspect they will probably keep it to themselves exclusively at least for a little while that's why you don't see everyone announcing new products with it. If it's really that good it will spark innovation and other companies will ...

Re: Iberostar Playa Pilar Cayo Guillermo

I have been 28 times to Cuba mostly for kiting. The wind gets better as the winter advances. The best months are March and April but you can still have no wind it's not a guaranteed wind place like Aruba. Normally you have enough wind to foil with a big kite almost every day at the end of the day un...

10 knots is a solid super easy day for foiling. 6 knots is when it becomes hard.
Yep totally agree!

Re: foil attached to twintip

It might work but why do it? It is going to flex like crazy it won't be pleasant it won't have much buoyancy it will be really hard to learn to switch your feet why not get a proper board!

Re: Reasons why Toby should delete Climate Change Threads

I don't want to get into the whole climate debate but I don't think this thread or the other super long one bring much value and useful information to the kiting community. It's a good idea to reduce our impact on this planet that feeds us but this is more of a discussion about the well being of man...

Re: Recommendation on cold weather kiteboarding gloves

It gets pretty cold here in Canada and just about everyone uses those: www.amazon.com/Glacier-Glove-802BK-L-Perfect-Curve/dp/B0029YI6QU/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=glacier%2Bgloves&qid=1571762742&sr=8-1&th=1&psc=1 They are brilliant thin enough not to get you arms tired and very warm. Good grip and...

Re: Foil Hi-Rise Lift Cabrinha

I have the 2019 X-Breed it's a nice solid and ligth board. I have used it with my Shinn P and Moses 633 works great with the Shinn not so good with the Moses. It's also a nice surf board too! But I haven't tried the Hi-Rise foil!

Re: Can I still use an old Concept Air 6m Wave?

A lot of people were using those years ago when I started kiting it's a 3 line fixed bridle kite. I would not go out in high wind it's not comparable to a 6M modern LEI kite. It would work fine in moderate wind on the snow but a 6M fixed bridle is a very powerful kite in strong and gusty wind it can...

Re: Buying demo kites - bad idea?

A true demo kite that has only been used a few times is fine but a kite that has been used for teaching that has been crashed hard many times and repaired is not a good idea. Ask them how many times it was flown approximately. Personally I never buy kite with repairs. When I buy long distance I only...
