Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

. Loops are smoother and quicker, Is the 12m2 that quick, that you can do powered kiteloops and the kite is gonna catch you on the upstroke!? ...or is 10m2 still the maximum size for megaloops for an average rider? Agio, with respect to looping, I'm talking downloops on a surfboard. Ha, my days of ...

Re: Aluula? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

I was holding off my review - I've only got three sessions on it and none of them have been light wind. So, I'll just give some really quick observations based on the sessions I have on the 12m Roam Aluula. I've flown it back to back on the first two sessions I had it to the last generation Roam (be...

Re: Where to travel Dec - March? Covid restrictions?

Barbados - still have to bring a negative test record, but no other beach restrictions and really no cases there right now. Correction - you have to stay in your hotel/rental, whatever until you have a 2nd negative test anywhere 5 to 14 days, pretty much kills a vacation. I don't blame them at all, ...

Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

Finally bought the hydroshort 5.4". Today my first ride and I am very happy with it. Waist high waves and the board handled light, snappy and fun. Saturday will be a day with 30 Knots and bigger waves. Looking forward to try it in those conditions. I am confident the Hydroshort will perform good. T...

Re: Firewire Hydroshort kite version

Ok, so here's my update. Primary takeaway is don't and I repeat, don't use Quobba fins with this board. No knock on the board or Quobbas, they work fine on other boards. The confluence of a foil-type water flow off the fin towards the tail and the deep channeling through the center of the board made...

It would be great if someone can do ‘blind testing’ of Aluula vs regular fabric.
I have a 12m Aluula Roam on order and have last year's 12m Roam in my quiver (which will be for sale once I get the Aluula). I'll take some comparison photos, weight, overall review once it arrives.

Re: Quobba Fins review

Sweet The 2020 whip has much more aggressive channels than the older north whip not sure on the hydroshort? If its twitchy it might be you want a larger fin. The med quobbas are similar size to small john johns. If you can try the large quobbas in the front :D So, to follow up on this, the Hydrosho...

Re: XTR kite construction for Tomo

I am riding medium fins, so I may try a bit larger of a fin. It's very quick rail to rail. Thanks - I saw smaller fins were suggested for these Tomo boards. At 86kg, would you go size large for Hydroshort in medium waves? Which board do you suggest for learning strapless, Hydroshort or Evo/Whip? Le...

Re: XTR kite construction for Tomo

I have the 5'4" Hydroshort, about 15 sessions on it at this point, all backside, so not a complete review but I have a pretty good feel for it. I'm 78kg, ride it as a thruster and my other directional is a 5'2" Whip CSC, so somewhat relatable to the Evo. The Whip CSC has one advantage over the Hydro...
