Re: Recommendation on cold weather kiteboarding gloves

It gets pretty cold here in Canada and just about everyone uses those: 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...

Re: How much wind can a single strut handle

I have 3 single stuts 2 Ultras and one Boxer but when the wind starts cranking I find the the weight advantage of losing 2 struts is far outweighed by the benefit of extra stability and wind range that you get with them. For very light wind on a foil it's a big advantage it helps keep the kite in th...

Re: Single strut kite comparison

I have owned 3 different ones. The Liquid Force Solo was a big disappointment mainly because of the weight it was heavier than many 3 strut kites. I sold it right away. There was a lot of flapping on it too but it was decent for jumping and powerful. Not very good for foiling it would Hindenburg lik...

Re: Board Recommendation

I was almost the same weight as you last year and I am also from Canada. My regular board is an Axis Limited 138x42.5 and my light wind board is an Axis Ultra 148x47 I lost a whole lot of weight this year but I am holding on to those boards because they are amazing. I could go smaller now but they a...

Re: Next foil - Armstrong 1200 or Moses 633

I haven't tried the Armstrong but I have the 633 it does everything smoothly you can't go wrong it's probably the most popular carbon foil on the market for a good reason!
