Re: The Ultimate Wetsuit !?

needessentials.com +1 +1 I was on the lookout for a new winter suit recently.....I usually buy cheap suits but I decided I didn't want to risk getting colds this year and having to isolate/take Coovid tests unnecessarily so I went on the hunt for a really good suit.... I found a lot of websites/bra...

Re: The Gong Hipe Review (Inflatable Wingfoil Board)

Sorry you feel like that Adriatic. I like HIPE, and I was attempting to present my experience dealing with customer service, the boards performance, and other items. My goal is full transparency with all items. This isn’t the first item I’ve made a video of that Green Hat Kiteboarding doesn’t offer...

Re: PIQ Duotone Support Attention PIQ Buyers Before You Buy

I bought mine second hand and it broke after a few months. I contacted them and they replaced but straight away.

I have a new one that hasn't been used in a year and a half.

Re: quiver startup selections - sizing input

I like to have the same model over different sizes where possible.....ie.... 17m Contra, 12m Switchblade and 9m Switchblade. I just find it easier to get used to turning speed and timing.

Knee Braces in 2020

So I have been kiting 6 months now after an ACL reconstruction. No major incidents but my BracePimp Custom brace is toast. It looks like it has been throw the wars, all the straps are worn out, hinges are rusting, paint is chipped, and all of the clasps are held together with tape & zip ties. Curren...

Re: Cheap Radar or ss Raptor for beginner?

Same kite model doesn't fly the same in different sizes. The difference between two kites of the same area but different brands, and even styles, is much smaller, than the difference between the two kites of different size. 12m is bulkier and slower than 9m, no matter what logo is printed upon it. ...

Re: Decathlon Orao Crossover Kite

Hopefully if it is stocked on shelfs in Decathlon there will be a disclaimer saying something along the lines of "lessons needed..... Dangerous sport"

Re: Can I use a Slingshot Turbine with Duotone trust bar?

I have never used them but you can get universal pigtail adapters to fly different brands off different kites.

The trust bar uses a high Y and slingshot don't as far as I know. This will change how the kite turns slightly..... I don't know if you'll notice 👍

Re: NKB/Duotone trust bar front line lengths

I have two trust bars (2019/2020) and I flew a mates 2015 bar recently and there is a massive difference in the height of the Y.

I have never used the 2019. Still new in the box but I use the 2020 a lot 👍
