Re: Cabrinha Apollo

I like the Velocity for twin tip riding, the Apollo was a bit of a let down since it was geared more directly toward foiling crowds and less for the TT rider. I'd love a refreshed Velocity with a design that gives a little less bar feedback (like the Contra). I know there's limitations on the physic...

Re: Fatality in France

Can we please stop telling people we don’t know how much wind they can ride in safely. If you don’t know them or their local, you have no idea what they are capable of, so stop pretending you do. Thank you. No we can't. 40 knot wind/46mph winds means gusts well in excess of 50mph. I don't care how ...

Re: Fatality in France

The problem here is: 40 knots. That's insane. Feel sorry for the guys family. Totally agree. If it's too windy to use my 8m (north of 30-35mph), it's too windy for me to kite (TT rider). I feel bad for the guy though, most of us have kited in high wind gnarly conditions a time or two, that's rollin...

Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

They both developed big crap as Cabrinha. Success came to them from NP marketing which is or was very strong. It is a pity that new North brand gets into the same vessel. Or may be that guys struck new ideas? Then interesting!! Disagree. Cabrinha makes fantastic kites, never had any issues and they...

Re: Nick Jacobsen leaves Cabrinha team

Nice! Looking forward to seeing the new North brand and gear. I've been a dedicated Cabrinha rider for years but I think I'll definitely be scoping out Pat's designs and possibly making the switch

The LF Wow is 3 struts, Solo is 1 strut
Ah! Correct, I flew the Solo in the past, not the Wow, thanks

Re: Kite for light wind - Recommendations

I can't speak for old Contras, but new Contras have virtually no bar pressure and are excellent for light wind. I don't like single or 5 strut LW kites, I've tried the Velocity (5 strut) and the LF Wow (1 strut), both have more disadvantages than advantages. The Contra's 3 strut is perfect and alway...

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Image Smoothing As A Gimbal Replacement

Hypersmooth is indeed very impressive. I haven't uploaded any videos yet but it is 100x better than my Hero 3 which I traded in for the $100 credit.

I never use the chest mount, it is a terrible POV IMO. I use the headstrap, it works great for me and produces a great field of view

Re: iwatch setting question

I've used the Sessions app for my Apple Watch 3 + Cellular, it is very inconsistent at it's very best, and does not work in most cases. By not working in most cases, I mean it does not track where I went on a GPS map, does not log my jumps, and states that my sessions are 1-5 minutes long when I com...
