Re: marc jacobs kota - pushed harder than anyone

I'm no expert, just your typical arm chair critic. Some incredible performances this year and amazing tricks, so inspiring. Reminds me of the leap FMX took when Redbull, Monster, Nitro circus etc came onto the scene and suddenly people were throwing double back flips etc. I could never call it as a ...

Re: Time for more stoke stories.

I cruised past on the foil in deep water further offshore. Came back with my twin tip.

Re: Predictions for Ram Airs in 2019

Lol. Looks like everyone is sick of hearing the same loop from the broken record. Later bro.

Re: Time for more stoke stories.

I live in a city of 4 million people where the isn't really such a thing as a secret spot anymore when it comes to kiting. However, when crossing the bay recently on my hydrofoil I hugged the coast, looking out for new areas I hadn't been to and found something interesting. The spot isn't accessible...

Re: Ozone Enduro V3 Release Date ?

I asked Ozone direct about 3 months ago. They said nothing imminent. Seems they update every 18 months or so and I think v2 has been out for 8 months now.

Re: Duotone Line Test - wtf?!

I have 4 bars I have been using for 1-2 years now. 2017 Cabrinha 2017 Ozone 2018 Ozone 2016 North The new 2018 Ozone lines feel awesome and look good but after just 10 sessions (lots of kiteloops) are already fluffing up and showing wear where they cross in the centre. Not sure how they will last......

Re: kingofwatersports.com review

Mixed feedback for me. I've spent about $10k over the years with them. Great prices and speedy delivery but: 3 x incorrectly picked orders Both warranties have been horrendously slow to process and approve and I was forced to pay freight on one of them ($180). Nowadays I just buy small, low risk ite...

Re: Line lengths for mega looping

You are correct! Short lines= powered and aggressive yank due to the kite looping more downwind. Long lines = less aggressive pull and the timing of the loop is less important. Also with shorter lines you are not going to jump as high (on average) so you will have less height to work with... keep t...

Line lengths for mega looping

I'm still learning to mega loop. I'm still staying below 10 meters until I get confident. I've been experimenting with different line lengths and kites: The Vegas 8m and 10m on 22m lines Bandit 9 and 11m with 24m lines Ozone enduro 10m with 23m and 20m lines Fx 8m and 10m with 22m and 19m lines Seem...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

I use 19m lines on the 12m to speed up the turns a bit. I took mine to a lake last week where the wind was blowing 5 - 20 knots and occassionally gusts were coming from 30 degrees in another direction. It was at this point that my soul behaved like what you have described. It never inverted though a...
