Re: wetsuit shortage

In March/April lots of brands and retailers cancelled orders that would have been delivered end of summer/fall. And many of the manufacturing facilities closed for 2 - 8 weeks. And demand at retail was extremely strong for suits last spring and through the summer due in part to travel bans. Stock le...

Re: North Launches The Reach

A couple of recent observations about this kite (flown the 9 and 12) from an intermediate freeride rider: Pros: - The kite flies very intuitively. Don't need to spend much focus or energy keeping track of it. It always is where I think it is (almost -- see below for timing jumps). - I find it very ...

Re: North Launches The Reach

Are you trying to go out in the very bottom of their low end? Maybe the wind is less on the water. What size lines you using? I'm using 20m so there is a little less drag from that. Are you inland or ocean, humid or dry air. Just trying to figure out what could be this issue. 12-20 mph on a foil is...

Re: North Launches The Reach

i recently got the Reach 7M and 9M. I got to say I'm on the fence about these kites. They do have the right amount of bar pressure for me, which is very little. So far, I've just used them for foiling, and it's been a bit of a struggle. They really do stall out quite a bit, and when you get them 'r...

Re: North Navigator Loose Swivel

Hi Mitchell, I haven't seen that before so we should take a look at it. We have that part so it can be an easy fix.

As it happens I'm just down the road from you in Toronto. I dm'd you and I'll help you out.

Seems La Nina is associated with strong easterlies at the equator. Good for souther portions of Hawaii and the Caribbean (eg Cabarete and points farther south).

Anyone else have thoughts on the topic?
Is it forecast to be a La Nina winter?

Re: Mystic Brand wetsuit review

So anyone actually use a Voltt? How about durability? They look nice but the zipper is small and reminds me off the small ripcurl zippers that blew out all the time. Do they have warantee on the suits? Hi, this suit has now been on the market for a year. I can say we have had no issues/warranties, ...

Re: Mystic Brand wetsuit review

Anyone have any experience with Mystic "Brand" wetsuit (not Star or Marshall line)? How does this compare to surf brands? Are the sizes pretty much the same as the other brands? I dont have the opportunity to try them. Hi Gator. The Brand series suits from Mystic are the entry level (lowest) price ...
