Re: Big air kites vs all around kites

Also don't forget that high aspect kites have some benefits in bigger usable wind range and handle gusts better (not yanking you around) So its easier to keep riding with a bigger kite (& easier to get upwind on the bottom end). This helps with jumping since you can be out on a bigger kite. Also, yo...

Re: Custom Sail material

Kite companies don’t use enough fabric to have it built exclusively for them, it will be available from any sail maker (yacht sails) that use/supplied by tejin. They may have an agreement no to supply it to another kite brand but that’s it. When you go into a contract to co-develop a product, it ca...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I am not offended since: I don’t own either of the bars so I don’t have any stake in this. It was really a genuine question/remark: I never heard people snapping kite lines that where not worn in some way. So I don’t see how these numbers are that relevant: at some point they are strong enough, anyt...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Just to let you know Ozone lines are SK99 and as far as I'm aware we were the first to switch to high modulus SK99, and are the best lines I've used. They are rated at 500/300KG breaking strain which makes them one of the strongest or the strongest on the market. As a matter of fact, the 500kg Ozon...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Anyone in the uk managed to get an aluula kite, ordered mine just over 2 months ago, still waiting, seems that retailers waiting on stock from factory, is there stock in the us? I got my kite 2 weeks ago in NL. The shop had a few coming in. Not sure when the shop ordered them but I put myself on th...

Re: Which tipe of board to choose

I just started out foiling and my local shop recommended the groove skate board. (They also sell the Moses boards) I got a 130cm slate with a Moses 633/90cm. The board has a nice nose that will bounce of waves or bounce you up if you go into rodeo mode. https://www.groovekiteboards.it/boards/foil-bo...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Today I finally managed to do some proper foiling with the 10m roam. I am still a beginner (2nd session) but I had a great time and am now able to go left and right now on the foil. Wind started out at about 10 knots and went up during the session to about 15, maybe 20 knots. I am really happy with ...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Has anybody else experience the flying overhead and dropping especially in light wind, starting on 1:52? I have a 10m which I used to about 6 knots. Did not have any issues parking the kite at 12 although I did not try to pull the frontlines for intentional front stall test. I did need to downloop ...

Re: Shared Kite Range Him & Her

High aspect kites are relatively flat (so wide, not tall kites). Example is the Core XR range since you are familiar with those. They tend to fly more towards the edge of the window which makes them easier to control in lots of wind so they have a larger wind range. They also tend to be fast in a st...

Re: Shared Kite Range Him & Her

Hi, It depends a bit on where and when you kite in NL. If you only kite in summer on lake spots (IJsselmeer) you probably want to look at 15-12-10 first. On the coast line spots 12-10-8 would be my recommendation as a first set. Note that at 75KG+ you won’t need a smaller high aspect kite in NL most...
