Re: Airush vantage 17m review

I think Mike's on his honeymoon, so may be a little while before any response from him. I was very pleasantly surprised by the top end of the Vantage 18, didn't seem like one of those lightwind kites that you're afraid of using just in case the wind cranks up a few knots. I remember on the day I tri...

Re: Interesting Judging Discussions

I don't know if the summary footage is representative, but going only by that, it looks like you were missing out on some height compared to the other guys - sure you had loads of float, but your peak height didn't seem to match the others shown. So on a comp which is judged as 70% height 30% risk f...

Re: Airush vantage 17m review

I had a play on one last week - seemed very nice to me, even though I was trying handlepasses on it, which it isn't really designed for! Was no slouch in the turn, even with only a 52cm bar, very nice low end, refined, pushes well upwind and super floaty (as you'd expect) in the boost. Wasn't windy ...

Re: Cabrinha Velocity - bad product quality

Its happens, not just with kites with everything, cars, TV's whatever :) I've seen kites explode on their very first inflation. Doesn't happen often, but does happen. Newness is no absolute guarantee of reliability, in fact things are actually quite likely to fail when new - hence why companies offe...

Re: Landing Blind ??

I presume you mean unhooked blind as you talk about the bar being ripped out of your hand... If you're landing fine, with your board pointing downwind/toward the kite it sounds like you've got the hardest part nailed :) Ok, a few questions... What kite are you using? How powered are you when you're ...

Re: 2015 Airush Team Series

Really getting on well with the razor, love the comfort it offers from what is a hardcore C. Loops like a beast, pop, slack and feedback is awesome. The bigger sizes fly like a size smaller which is just a real stand-out feature of the razors, but you can tune them to however fast/slow you desire. I...

Re: Airush Vantage 18m?

I tried one of this at a demo day a few weeks ago, and really clicked with it. I liked the way its got a bit of race DNA to it, to allow it to progress further forward in the window and although it is a huge kite for sure it flies like something a few sqm smaller - with more agile turning and the ab...

Re: sector 60 max speed

I found i got the most out of it by tightening the straps up super tight to get your feet well windward, riding flat by pushing the fins. Was amazed how fast it could go in non-flat water and marginal winds :)

Re: Airush Varial X 2014

I had a go on the 12m VX this weekend I normally ride hardcore C kites, but have had plenty of experience trying lots of other kites of all shapes and sizes :) I found it a really nice kite to boost with, I downloop as standard from a high jump and found the airtime and landing to be great for 12m w...
