Re: Naish Pivot 2020

So a friend of mine that's been kicking around new Pivots mentioned Real's review of the new 2020 Pivot. Most interestingly, specifically saying the kite has redone the wingtips making them larger, and making the kite more freestyle oriented. That's a significant change that would certainly garner ...

Re: Foiling lessons: Ouch

Save the 500 dollars and spend it on a surfboard and learn a front foot stance, the twin tip with otherwise trip you up learning to foil. Then... 60cm mast. single front hook. big wing.

Re: Safety issue of connecting kite leash to the back or side of Harness

It should be addressed to the manufacturer's, the provision is often not included or you have to buy an extra eyelet like the new mystic stealth bars. Safety should come before profit.

I connect to the side (not through choice) on a mantra harness with a short ion leash, works out centimetre perfect.

Re: Light wind board / kite suggestions?

If your 14m hangs and is stable, an airush sector 60 will give you more water time without the depth requirements of a hydrofoil and it points upwind just as much as a foil.
A cheap S/H v2 or v3 would make a nice buy.

Re: Foil bag?

I use the combination of a prolimit kite foil board bag (board + second mast) and the stock Zeeko foil bag.

Re: Old/Ancient gear - what is it good for?

Old kit is fine, the marketing department and instructors are doing their combined job if people panic into buying kit under 2 seasons old. If you are going for value for money then he/you should know your brands and models. Recently I retired a 2009 ozone light xc, fixed 3 valves on it over 4 years...

Re: Ozone leading edge bladder failures?

Have you found where they are leaking? I have older catalysts from 2013/14 and I'm now finding slow leaks from the boston valve due to over tightening, replacing the male part hasn't solved it on one of my kites and using ptfe tape had negligible effect. So im now cutting off the valve to replace it.

Re: Development Never Stops - Eleveight 2020

Small and controlled growth with good designers, big name riders are not needed here. Looking forward to seeing their kit on the beaches.
