Re: Switching from RPMs to Fuels

I rode the following kites back to back this weekend: 11M RPM 2014 12M RPM 2013 11M FUEL 2013 After only riding the Fuel for a couple of months now, the first raley I did on the 12M RPM I sent the kite as well. It is harder to control the RPM for unhooked maneuvers. Also, I was super lit the entire ...

Re: Light wind kite testing!

How can a 12m kite be considered as a performant light wind kite!?!?!? Last monday, I saw a guy launch his 12M Ozone and whip out a hydrofoil (must have been MHL cause they launched right in front of the shack where they manufacture them) and do the most awesome light wind kiting I have ever seen. ...

Re: Switching from RPMs to Fuels

I got a FUEL because of a great deal... $800 bucks for a FUEL2013 vs $1350 or more for an RPM. But I have really enjoyed flying the FUEL. You know all the talk about how C kites are this or that... Its plain and simple: The FUEL is harder to relaunch and has no depower The RPM's bar is so sensitive,...

Re: Red Bull King of the Air interviews

I don't know, tuff call from you. Jessi did good last year, no? I haven't seen it live, but didn't hear any voice that another rider was better than him. If no proof, don't take away Jessi's honor. Just playing, wasnt' there either. I said it more because of the post about Langeree, but he is one o...

Re: Red Bull King of the Air interviews

elliott george: video please, really want to see that! Not my thing there...I love big kites, don't like Kiteloops (don't need to break anything). Wind too strong for that (I enjoy up to 25 knots, not 25+), wind from left, cold water, big fish (I do too much bodydragging ;-) ) And I don't enjoy com...

Re: WTF

Earlier today had my center lines snap on the outside break. Was just stuck out there floating for half hour attached to kite trying to make it back but could not and was only getting pulled out farther and farther. So made decision to ditch the gear and swim. Hardly made it back, only made it back...
