Re: Switch Kites

Any chance that wave orientated combat will be reverse launchable? When is it due?

Please?

I dislike the "new" kites every year. Why not keep a good design for more than a few months?
I've still got a 10 in good condition.. never letting it go, well until it dies an honorable well used death. Wish i had an 8 and 12 to go with it...

Re: Switch Kites

Couple more questions.. if you guys really wanted to shake the market up did you look at the delaminating valve phenomenon all kites seem to have issues with? Are they all one pump? No single pump options? How does the combat work unhooked in waves? (i prefer wave riding but haven't been able to giv...

Re: Switch Kites

Good point, is the fifth under tension on the combats? do they work on four lines? Will it work happily in all sizes with the naish fifth line setup where the front lines split 13.5m from the kite and the fifth is under tension from that point?

Re: Switch Kites

Just looking at the bar.. can i ask why you guys went with those type of bar ends? I've always noticed and disliked the feel of bars that have the rear line connectors at the top of the horn. Its obvious that its probably easier/cheaper to manufactur but are there any other reasons? The Naish system...

Re: 2011 C4 any good for Megalooping?

I've flown and looped torches for years. Been hoping for something with four lines to that could match it for quite a while so demo'd a 12m C4 last summer.. personally i think just like every other flat kite... (deltas aside but they loop weird).. no power in loops at all.. mushy bar.. all front lin...

Re: Kiteboarding Wave World Championship 2011

Can you explain how a bunch of boaties are going to judge a wave riding competition? Personally i think people doing long drawn out carves with the power of the kite is boring as hell, you're not riding a wave you're kiting off it then on to it again... it can be done toeside with a Twin tip. Unstra...

Re: Naish Park vs Ozone c4 for unhooked?

The 5-line 2011 torches might look identical to the 2010 ones but something is different, havent scrutinized it so not sure what is though. I I flew both and the 2011 back-stalls a lot and feels really weird. Anyone who tried the 2011 torch vs 2010 say it flies really bad. I am not a dealer so not ...
