Re: Eleveight CS vary: v3 2021 vs old model

I think the diff between the plus and the normal model is the PU coating around the rope and the quick release is upgraded.

My guess is that 90% will buy the Plus and just Schools will buy the simpler and cheaper model.

Re: TheKiteMag Ultimate Test #3 | free to read

I know you have to be complimentary to brands, but a 10/10 should be for something exceptional. It weakens your message if I see several boards with a 10, eg build quality, one with Innegra heavier and one with carbon lighter, Im confused why they both get a 10?

Re: Surf board weight

I think most companies are a little shy about the weights. They push how light and high tech their boards are, but ultimately there is a weight/strength trade off.

Re: Dakine chameleon harness

DaKine Harnesses are great. They have been taken over by Pete Cabrinha in Maui and I believe they are rebooting the range. It should be good to see what they release soon.

I would pay for it if it was free.
In New Zealand that is logical. Don't judge :D

Re: Kite to replace my Best TS 12m

Eleveight RS would be logical and a good choice.

Re: When will Aluula make it to other brands?

They were saying it was 10 times as strong, yet I don't get why they don't half they thickness and weight of it so it's only 5 times as strong, lighter and cheaper?

Re: Hyde Kite!

Dano lived in China for many years managing production of kites and bars, so he knows both design and manufacturing better than most kite designers.

It'll be great to see what he comes up with in the next few years.

Re: Difference between EPS and PU core?

EPA can let in a lot more water than PU or XPA.
XPA is way more likely to delay under your front foot.
EPA is lighter, but also softer (often).
