Correcting for pulley length with say a level mixer like Flysurfer advise will usually make a kite fly wrong because of other bridle changes.
Does the long mixer test introduced in the soul account for these changes?

Duotone Project TETA



Let's see if this allows them to improve at a faster rate. And hopefully some day we can see more technical data available before purchasing a kite.

Re: What makes a good strapless kite

In this case i am talking lightwind riding - 8-12knots, no waves, also not much wind for tricks either.
I am just replacing my 160 door with a strapless. Later maybe some waves, but probably with onshore wind, rarely i have sideshore.

What makes a good strapless kite

I am learning strapless now, however my main kite is a Soul 15m, and while great for twintip, it is way too powerful most of the days for strapless riding( i have to ride with the bar pushed all the way, and the depower at max). What should I look for in a lightwind strapless kite. I am not yet ridi...

Re: Action Cams in 2019 whats everyone using

Is the go pro 7 waterproof enough without housing? It is rated at 10m, however with kiting there may be some extreme crashes and I am not sure if it will survive.

Are $200 glasses 200% better than $1 ones?
A small correction, the price increase is not 200% but 20000% (or 19900% to be precise).

Yeah, for prescription lenses check the typhoon RX line, just 490USD, or if that is too much for you, the surger RX line, merely for 480USD.

I myself wear daily contact lenses so i don't have to worry about losing them or having to clean them after the end of the day.

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

The China Export stuff doesn't work in retail, especially in big chains. If you really think the production costs differences are 10000% then i have nothing to say. But the prices will keep rising if people keep paying so much. Look at snowboarding googles, for 90 euros you can buy an Oakley mask, w...

Re: We should be wearing sunglasses throughout the day and especially while kiteboarding! Why aren't we?

Primark is selling CE certified(100% uv protecting) sunglasses for 1 euro. How much do you think they cost to manufacture. The materials are incredibly cheap, also Grilamid TR90 sunglasses can be found for 2 usd, and i believe the material itself is around 10-12usd for 1kg. You can buy a working and...

I am amazed how much people are willing to pay for something that costs cents to manufacture...
