Re: North: The Champions of One Eye

Some great riding from both the men and women. It seems like North is doing a good thing by sponsoring the event..all of their riders are winning. I wonder why other brands don't sponsor the event? The answer to that question is simple... Because north hands down has the best GROUP of wave riders i...

Re: Cabrinha IDS malfunction

With all due respect I don't care about models as it will be very different depending on kits size and wind speed and position of the kite when the IDS is activated What I do feel is that I was mislead by cabrinha advertising videos etc Just watch for yourself. The IDS rarely functions how it does i...

Re: Cabrinha IDS malfunction

I'm thinking of starting a new thread called " Cabrinha please free upgrade my 2011 IDS " It's like having a 1 year old car with factory defective air bags and the manufacture is aware of it. Rather that fix the defective airbags they tell you not to drive your 1 year old car over 5 miles an hour an...

Re: Cabrinha IDS malfunction

I have 4 (8,10,12 and 14 ) 2011 cabrinha switchblade kites. I love the kite, but think the IDS is dangerous and misleading. The swivel does not work so the centerline wraps around the IDS line and does not allow the load to transfer to the IDS line. Warning if you like to do tricks one way and have ...

Re: Cabrinha IDS malfunction

If you have any more than 5 twist in your lines your IDS most likely will not function correctly And your kite will still pull like a truck. The center line will wrap around the IDS line and will not let it slide and deploy. The swivel is worthless and it's common knowledge that it does not actually...

Re: Top Windsurfers said to take up Kiteboarding for Rio 201

All this hype is overrated. I mean all there is going to be is ONE PERSON from each country racing. Yes correct me if im wrong but only ONE person to represent from the USA in kite racing

Re: Cabrinha Switchblade 2013 vs Chaos

10M kite in 30 knots converted to horsepower

Ok so I was wondering just for fun .. I was jumping 30 feet the other day and I was wondering just how much power my kite had to yank me 30 feet into the air in like 2 seconds. I was wondering if anybody had a guess as to just how much horsepower that kite must have to do that. I was guessing it cou...
