Re: 14 meter Kite Advise

The Edge will Jump the best but the Pivot will be better in waves and Jump really great too. I have own several Ultra they are not the best for jumping so any of those 3 should be better. The Ultra is amazing for foiling and good in waves but a kite designed to drift well will pull downwind for Jump...

Re: Help finding the Holy Grail of light wind boards

Those are all square door type boards none of them will be smooth in choppy water. Personally I'm heavier than you and I can ride easily in 12 knots with my Axis Ultra it is super smooth in the chop and can do anything a freestyle board can do. I would be using a 15m with a twin tip.... That's if I ...

Re: Kite fatality Lake Champlain

Pretty sad to loose a fellow kiter. Apparently the guy was snow kiting on the ice with a paraskiflex those are like a cross between a kite and a sail they don't float and they stop pulling when there is no tension in the lines, the lines are short and they just fall flat and stay there once on the g...

Re: What to do with e-foil batteries? USA

These are the same as eBike batteries a lot places that build and fix ebike batteries would be able to fix it if you can't get it replace on warranty. I built a few ebikes so I know a few things about those. The cells are probably fine it must be the BMS board that has a burned component.

Re: Foil size for heavy rider

I find that the rider weight doesn't make much difference on a foil I have been out with heavier riders than me on the same wing (Moses 633) and everyone was able to ride with similar size kites in different wind conditions the smaller riders have an advantage in very light wind but the difference i...

Re: Custom bar question

I had a switch bar for a while and didn’t like it. Very heavy. A soft aluminium center wore quickly and resulted in sharp edges that then wore out center lines. It was an early one so they may have improved? Do those Jeely bars have a stainless centers (like kiteattitude) or aluminium alloy? I beli...
