Re: Any reviews on the Duotone Juice?

Just had an epic session a couple of days ago on a Juice 15, in something like 14 kn. I’m into old school, so don’t unhook. All I can say is that I’ve spent the first 20 minutes without my hair ever touching the water. Did not miss one trick, one jump, one loop. Everything just felt natural. Really ...

Re: Big Air/Kiteloop Progression Kites

If you’re just starting out with “2-3 meters” jump I would really not worry too much about what kite is better at mega looping. You can loop with any modern kite, what will be holding you back more is balls, not gear. After a long time I’ve just started some looping and I do it fine on Rebels, and i...

Re: What's the thing with Duotone?

I think that there is no kite brand on the market that is even remotely clearly superior vs competition, and if you think about it, this is also reflected in prices: they are all very similar. Think about the difference vs other markets where you can buy, say, a 150 dollar smartphone or a 1,200 Ipho...

Re: Action Cams in 2019 whats everyone using

I have an insta 360 one x.

It would be a great camera, but it has a monumental flaw: in bright sunlight the screen is unreadable, making it completely useless.
I’m just back from an epic island trip and I simply couldn’t use it because of this.

Re: Kite spots May-August...Madagascar?

I have a bunch of time off and i'm looking for a kite destination(s) for May-August. Most important, I want super strong wind. 25-35+ knots every day. Waves on surfboard is great but I mostly go for boosting on TT. Also, will be traveling alone so cool vibe, nightlife, easy to meet people is also i...

Tulum?

Hi there,
Looking to spend a week in March somewhere around Caribbean, Mexico etc.

I am looking at union island, but non kiting wife would probably be happier in tulum. Anybody has been there for kiting? How is it?

Thanks,

Vanni

Re: Who ride with sunglasses, and where?

tried polarized sunglasses a couple years ago, never went back.

Couldn’t imagine to ride without now, it’s probably the single most important accessory.

I even put some hydrophobic coating on them, not a single drop stays on the lense.

Re: Another casualty in Italy

This is a Darwin Award, Italy is currently being devastated by storms, schools are closed, a port has been devastated, trees are falling, flooding a everywhere.

You just don’t go out in these conditions.

Are forecasts reliable for Daklha?

As per subject,
we are considering a last minute kite trip in October based on forecasts, and Daklha is one of the candidates.

In your experience, are forecasts reliable for that spot?

Thanks
