Re: Better grip before jump in chop?

I'm having this issue also, I often lose my grip when I send my kite and then I have that horrible mini jump that sometimes goes a lot downwind. All that effort to get upwind and then it's wasted because my bad grip :cry: I have a kiteboard from 2005 somewhere, so I might try to improve with a new ...

Re: Better grip before jump in chop?

There is also a lot of difference between sending the kite sheeted out and sheeting back in somewhere near the zenith, rather than just keeping it sheeted in. I also find that even small technique changes tend to screw with your timing and so you have to persevere a bit to see any benefit. However ...

Re: Wareable WOO alternatives

Tried Xensr app for Apple Watch. It doesn’t really work properly - some jumps are not registering and height seems to be quite a bit lower then on woo (very debatable question which one is showing more correct numbers, but still). Xensr app is quite buggy and doesn’t sometimes sync with phone and yo...

Re: Q-power line

Not sure why you'd need it, but it probably won't hurt anything as long as the safety line can function completely. I had Kiteboarding.com do a Click Bar for me with the stuff, and it's really pretty impressive line. My one niggle is the lines are so rigid that when it's very cold, they become comp...

Re: Ozone leading edge bladder failures?

Certainly not normal. Never seen an Ozone-kite fail. The struts do leak though. A bit annoying, but the leaks have never had any practical consequences for me. Not sure if they leak more than other brands? Never owned a kite that wasn’t Ozone. Hahah.. leaking struts - that is definitely a failed ki...

Re: Do Twin tips get softer or flexier over time?

I believe that yes. I know for sure that snowboards get more flex with time as you “break it in”. Many kiteboards are made by same technology and on same factories as snowboards, so completely possible that what you are feeling is actually true..

New Duotone Team Series?

Looks like a new Duotone Team Series board prototype?
Full carbon sandwich by the looks of it and completely new bottom shape. Reminds me of Tona Flow mix with some tip channels like on Jaime or Slingshot Vision boards.
What do you guys think?

Re: What kind of rip-stop should i use?

You should look for a Nylon repair tape, also known as ripstop tape. It should have a kite fabric patter on it. Apply on both sides, push it down properly and wait 12 hours for proper bonding. Here is an example: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F192840...

Re: Big Air/Kiteloop Progression Kites

Have tried all kites from North/Duotone and Core XR5 from the kites you have mentioned. First of all, all of kites can jump and can loop these days. There are differences between them and you are spot on them in your analysis. It comes down to what kind of feel you like. Dice and Evo feel completely...
