Re: North Kites confusion! On purpose???

Thanks for the links. Good info.

I am a North athlete and the snowkite team manager, and have never seen or heard this info. Good to know.

Re: North Kites confusion! On purpose???

All North kites fly on five line bars, and come with 5th line, to do so free of charge! But generally a surf kite with four lines can have advantages. You do not need a four line bar, but you may want one, I have only flown the Juice, that is based off the Neo, so I have no info to share, perhaps D...

Re: North Kites confusion! On purpose???

I have flown every rebel since 2011 and can feel the difference in each one, well done Ken! I owned every rebel since then. Buying new ones every year, 2015 I will change to another kite. I couldn't care less about the patch, as I switch my kites way to early to have any wear around the valve. What...

Re: North Kites confusion! On purpose???

Dan, When will we get the scoop on the 2015 Neo? BTW, I have 2013 Rebels in 7m and 10m and I think they are great. I had demo'd previous years and never connected until 2013. I guess we are all different. They are keepers but I'd like to add a wave specific kite and want to check out the Neo. My on...

Re: North Kites confusion! On purpose???

So you are changing to a different kite and brand I assume because of an absent patch. Righto :o Even tough he personally has never had a issue.....with said patch.....only that the kite designers ideas about the kite they designed, need corrections....or that he needs a patch so badly that cutting...

Re: North Kites confusion! On purpose???

I was very disappointed with Ken Winners work ethics. To simply forget things like the patch above the valve "protection patch" and later claim "the patch is not necessary". Why do all other north kites have it then? Why does the 2015 Rebel has it?? Anyway. Maybe he lost the ideas for new designs. ...

Re: 2015 North Dyno vs 2014 North Juice.

Cheers billy. Any chance you could get some pictures maybe from behind the kite with lines attached, pulled taught so I could see the interaction of the rear and front lines relative to the bridle? Or is that just asking to much...lol :D Very interesting indeed. You mentioned a mystery slippery lea...

Re: 2015 North Dyno vs 2014 North Juice.

Talked to Danny at Ocean Air who talked to some guy named Craig Cunningham I think (North Rider?) - anyhow he said the Juice 15m likes to fly "back" in the window vs the Dyno which is forward. Obviously more hangtime on the Dyno. Billy - do you feel that by sitting back in the window that the Juice...
