Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

That is the actual pricing. It's pretty much in line with foil kites, which may be the most direct competition for light wind and foiling. Surf, not so much.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Some more video. It doesn't show much as the wind and snow were bogus. But I had to try the kite.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Somehow Aluula doesn't rely on thread count for strength.

I opened up the zipper and found style bladders in the kite. Must be another factor of a pre-production model. The production kites with the lighter bladders.

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

My first impression video. Feedback from O.R. already schooled me on a few things: That is the bag it will come with (lightweight), as it's pre-production, not all will look identical to this one in the small details, they are using Teijen Technoforce D2 on Aluula kites and 2020 legacy construction ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Not that it makes a world of difference, but the Alpha is 1 strut and the Roam is 3 strut. 3 struts are generally handle the high end better etc. Compare the Ozone Reo to the Roam, those are both surf kites with 3 struts to get an accurate measure of how much lighter Aluula is.

Re: Ocean rodeo 14m razor

It's not really a light wind kite comparable to the Flite. It is faster turning but the wind range is smaller. It's better for pop and slack handlepassing. It can be really good for learning wakestyle and freestyle tricks when the wind isn't so strong that the consequences are severe if the trick is...

Re: Anyone tested the new 7m or 9m Souls

I rode a demo at AWSI in the Gorge this August and immediately bought one. I think this video he was on the 7m I had or maybe the 8m.

Re: Recycle your old TriFin Raceboards

Gunnar, you are a madman! Great idea. Many of us have old race boards around. So, the center fin position Tuttle box was in the right spot to mount the foil -- as far as being a good position for the foil mount? No modifications required? Just as interesting, where was your camera mounted and how? T...
