Re: Cabrinha Moto

Mmmmmm, I would say with either of them you will not regret ...That said i'm hooked on the SB feeling ...my search of a 5 strut platform kite ,not to high not to low AR , with more projected área than a bridled C kite and kind of crossover it narrowed to SB's at the end...

Re: North, back in the fold.

The only similarities with Eleveight are the choosen colors . The kite itself from this picture and from the vídeo of the designer ( ex cabrinha) posted in another thread, IMHO it looks like a Switchblade , five strut platform ,one pulley ,bow style kite. It makes sense because it's a proven design ...

Re: How to place a front pad on a surfboard?
