Re: Eleveight CS vary 2021 vs 2020

The bar looks pretty much the same apart from some durability upgrades, the throw is adjustable with a screw so if you want less throw you can just set the bar at the distance you like, good bar and great lines

Re: Difference between Eleveight FS and Slingshot RPM? Need your opinions

Honestly I tried both and absolutely love the FS much better feeling from it and punchy loops. The gear is also more innovative for example the bar is adjustable for line lengths unlike ss and even I dislike that ss has the old school inflate valves. As I've just ordered the 2021 gear last week I'm ...

Re: What makes the kite "catch " you?

Cheers for the response! Get well soon! I land most my loops and so far no injuries. I know how to send big loops and understand what your saying but my question is what makes the kite catch you faster. For example if your outside lines are tighter the kite will react faster and the loop will be qui...

What makes the kite "catch" you?

So i've been sending big kiteloops for a while now . Took out a friends bandit and noticed that the kite was able to catch me much sooner than my kite which is an fx. What actually makes the kite come back up to catch you sooner after the loop? Of course the shape of the kite will give it a faster t...

Re: New Woo Record by Maarten Haeger

The 8.1g was his hardest landing of the session that day, not necessarily the biggest jump.

These guys are going massive and the skill and commitment is insane! When the wind is blasting 50kts I bet its hard to get a photographer standing in the beach videoing for more than 5minutes 😂

F-one Bullit

Just saw the release of the Bullit from Fone which is aimed specifically for megaloops, how much different can it be from the bandit?

The Bullit will be Liams weapon of choice for KOTA.

Very curious to see what reaction comes from this kite, it could be yet another "game changer"

Re: Lost Board in Tarifa - Cabrinha Rival green 135cm

Take a walk right up along that area around the point it should have washes up somewhere considering the wind direction and the big curve of land. Also post it on the tsrifa kiteboarding Facebook page.

I'd ask the little windsurf centre there too about it

Good luck

Re: The best kite for Teaching?

I know many people are saying forget brand and just 3 strut kite will be fine but after teaching for a few years I do notice the difference between brands and am curious to get a bit more detailed info. The radar is a 3 strut kite - inverts often after a crash Catalyst also 3 strut - while teaching ...

Re: I'm less addicted, kiting less and now i'm a better person because of it.

Interesting post! That's deep stuff, I'm loving kiting every aspect of it being always aware of the weather while surrounding myself with a great crew of kiters in a lovely location. My partner kites too and we visit different countries renound for kiting. For us it's a major part of our lives and I...
