Re: Airush Ultra 12m as Main Kite for Twin-Tipping

I have a 9m Ultra that I ride as my main kite all the time, 8 sessions since Sunday actually, it's literally the only kite I own (other than a bunch of old kites). It's an amazing kite for everything except jumping, although I was actually just jumping off 6-8foot waves last night and sending it hug...

Re: Apple Watch Series 2...

I kite more than most people (3-4x week all year long) and I always wear my apple watch series 3. I also surf several days weekly, shallow freedive, and fish (and do whatever else I want) with it on. You do not have to worry about water coming in, it is fully waterproof and very impact resistant. If...

Re: 2019 Watches

So now I've done well over 100 sessions with my Apple Watch (probably a lot more). Standard velcro strap or Carterjett aftermarket band is best. Sport band is horrible and you will lose your watch (maybe first session). I have never used a case and I kite with it regularly, I also surf with it and f...

Re: Bigger board or bigger kite in light wind?

6 knots is very very light wind and will be rough with a LEI. One of the major problems with ultra light wind is that it can be very unstable and drop to 3 knots temporarily etc. I am quite experienced and have an Airush Ultra single strut kite and a number of hydrofoils and my low end for a consist...

Re: Best surf kite wave in Florida

Having kited all over Florida and now living in Florida and kiting most days (including this morning) I would say that Cocoa/Melbourne area is probably the best overall for wave kiting. -Central Florida in general gets the best combination of waves and wind. Weather is always pleasant, good swell wi...

Re: Cheap mast and foil recomendations

I have 5 different foil setups and I believe the Neil Pryde is best overall because it is so versatile and inexpensive. Medium and Large wings are great for surfing and wakesurfing, Medium is great for low wind kitefoiling, Small is great for regular kitefoiling. Very durable and high quality.

Re: Hydrofoiling in 10 knots - Is it that hard?

10 knots is fine foiling conditions. Of course the lulls can absolutely destroy you if they drop too low in these conditions.
9m Ultra and Cloud 9 s24 (LF Impulse) and you are good to go. I ride those exact conditions at least twice a week.

Re: Recommendation on cold weather kiteboarding gloves

Rip curl flashbomb mittens. Insanely warm, gaskets, fuzz, etc. I have ridden in 32 degree water and 20 degree air with these and warm fingers. Forearms wear out though because they are made for surfing.

Re: Introducing the IQR from Airush

Not game-changing or really that innovative but seems like a very nice modern QR/chickenloop package.

Re: Apple Watch Band

I have the velcro band and it's awesome, even if the velcro comes undone it still is a big loop and won't just fall off, although I've never had the velcro come undone and I've surfed/kited/lived with it for a few years now. My brother in law has the CarterJet brand NATO style band from amazon (~$25...
