Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

Although people are right in saying it's the quality, innovation, design, etc. that matter, the brand name also carries a lot of weight. In this case, North has been one of the market leaders in the kitesurfing business for a while now and North sails is practically the most famous sail brand in the...

Re: Kite design software

I was browsing the web, looking for design software used by kitesurfing companies. Since the last post in this thread is from a while ago, I was wondering if someone had newer information?

Any information really appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Kite Harness 2.0, a technical overview from designer

Hello, my name is Mario and I'm the designer of DYNABAR and other JAY company equipment. Some of you remember the effort we made in 2008 to bring to market the Sliding Hook System SHS and after 9 versions and 5500pcs sold we are trying to understand why this solution is not yet well accepted by all...

Re: Ben Wilson announces his new Brand

From the kite info. page: "A great wave kite that also performs in all other disciplines." At this point, saying that a kite is for waves only would be a marketing suicide unless you are able to dominate a niche. I hope we eventually get there as in windsurfing (different wave sails for different co...

Re: My experiences Wave riding with different boards and kit

I just found a thread where they ask Ben Wilson about waveriding and he says that it's possible to ride unhooked in almost any condition. When he explained the exception, I was expecting him to say side onshore but he said offshore! Coming from windsurfing to me it sounded strange because that's the...

Re: My experiences Wave riding with different boards and kit

I stumbled upon this thread just two days ago and though it´s been a while since the last post, I thought I´d write what has come to my mind since reading it. I am a 70 Kg, 150 lb rider, mostly interested in riding waves. I came from windsurfing to surfing and then kiting and ride strapped and hooke...

Slingshot RPM

Hi guys, Nice tips about the RPM. I have been looking for reviews on the RPM as I am undecided between it and the REV 2 for riding waves primarily. Now I use a Fuel 11 but I have wanted to change it for a long time for a kite with more depower that allows me to "wait" for the waves and also a kite t...

Re: Slingshot RPM

Thanks guys for your responses, they have certainly cleared the picture for me. Kiteosphere, you were right on the money, my Fuel 15 is a 2005 and the 11 a 2007. How did you guess they were older kites? I guess the last question that remains is: what kite is more powerful, the REV or the RPM? As I s...

Any comments on the comparable size between the Link 12 and a C kite? According to the Link manual, the 12 Link is equivalent to a 15 C kite? Have you found this is true and does it make a difference when riding with the 4 or 5 line configuration (I would suppose the kite in the 5 line config. has l...
