Re: Naish Slash on Twin Tip

Not sure about the 12. I absolutely looooove the slash on TT. But I mainly tried the smaller sizes ie. the 7. What are you trying to do? I rarely ride TT anymore so there is that. The slash is ultra stable, predictable, jumps well, but with less initial pull than the pivot. I bet the bigger slash w...

Naish Slash on Twin Tip

Hi,

Have seen a few Naish slash for a pretty good price. Dont really ride strapless and could do with a new 12m for twin tip riding. Was wondering whether anyone tends to ride these on a twin tip board and if there was any particular reasons not to.

I normally ride pivots and rides.

Re: Kite Release Fuse

Thanks everyone for your input. Interesting food for thought - any system would rely on the correct training just as correct kite technique would at any point. I'll let this one bubble away a little more as I am sure there are still ways to make kiting a safer sport - design oriented or not. As for ...

Re: Kite Release Fuse

I highly doubt that 110% figure. Maybe for mowing the lawn underpowered, but anyone that does slightly more than that should easily exceed 2x body weight from now and then. For riding overpowerd and jumping you can go to 2-4x bodyweight. Have a racing testrider of 100kg that easily bends 4*25mm sta...

Re: Kite Release Fuse

Format would be something like 110% when switched on - say for landing and launching and then overridden when normally riding. I weigh 75kg so it wouldn't do anything unless I was being yanked along or upwards with 82.5kg Agreed wouldn't be much use for megaloops etc as this is basically a controlle...

Re: Kite Release Fuse

I would say lofting is the cause of some of the more severe crashes in kitesurfing. If people aren't lofted then the main injury cause then becomes death loops and so on.

Solve crashing - you mean like something to take out the impact of someone into a hard object?

Re: Kite Release Fuse

Yeah was thinking that it would be mostly around launching and landing the kite, I think a situation people want to avoid is 2-4g at this point in the kite session - maybe an override would be used for the actually riding. I haven't done much in the way of sums but 2g acceleration in 0.5s would laun...

Kite Release Fuse

Hi Everyone, Have been thinking about a way to design out Lofting. So ideas have centered around a calibrated release that would trigger should you be pulled with something like 110% of your body weight - no firm figures yet. This would be so you could ride normally but if you experienced large acce...

Re: Naish pivot with ocean rodeo bar

Yeah that's what I thought but the pilot bar and the shift stick appear to have a different split point, so confused me a bit. The shift bar being a fair bit further than the depower lines would have been. Though if both bars work for ocean rodeo kites with no issue I would have thought they would w...

Naish pivot with ocean rodeo bar

Hey just wondering if anyone has flown a naish pivot with an ocean rodeo stick shift bar? Was trying to work out where the V/Y and whether it is adjustable like the North click bar. I can't find much info on it from ocean rodeo. The Naish one is low V on the standard naish bars.
