Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

No issues - I haven’t noticed anything heavier, the bar seems light to me on my 9 and 11 2018 Switchblades, they turn faster and feel more direct, and I really like them! I finally replace my 2012 Switchblades, nothing was wrong with them either, they last forever, just thought it was time.

Re: Waterproof cell phone recommendation

If in the U.S. then all cell phones are required to make a 911 emergency call, even if they have no plan or prepaid time, they just need to be charged up to make the call. I put mine in the waterproof bags with a lanyard around my neck, and the bag goes under my rash shirt. But I think it isn’t nece...

Re: CrazyFly Raptor LTD 2017 vs 2018

I have the regular, not LTD, Raptor in 2016 and 2018. They both are great but the Nano Glide Skin on the 2018 seems to edge better than than the 2016 without it. You might search for a second, or board that has a blemish that is discounted. Also, call Crazyfly and talk to them about the years, they ...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

Someone here once said they used thinner plastic zip ties to act as a pressure release on the leash connection to the board.

Re: Do you need to rinse kites?

Check with the manufacturer but I don’t think I’ve seen a recommendation other than dry and no sand. Also some reported problems using compression bags. Bars - I’ve seen recommended fresh water soak or rinse. Harnesses and boards - never seen a recommendation. Then there is rolling or folding... I t...

Re: Best split boards 2016

I’ve been interested in getting a split board for years. But the prices seem to be about double a normal boards price. Also, I love my Crazyfly Raptor board and haven’t had to pay extra traveling with it in a golf style bag.

Re: what's better? 2 old Cab SB kites or 1 new one?

I just got 2 new 2018 sb 9 and 11, replacing 2012’s, and really liked them. Rode the 9 almost every day. I would go for a new kite.

If you wait a month or two, next model year will be out, and you can a new 2018 at a discount, or get the newest model.
