Re: Dakine option spreader

I'm thinking about ordering a 10", have no way to try one first. I've been using a small Dakine Renegade with a 10" Dakine bar for years.

why would you take an H3 over a 0 or 1 strutt design ?

Re: Switch Lineup

I think the H3 looks great but at the moment the foiling market looks to be saturated by zero or one strutt designs.

So what I'm really asking is why would you take an H3 over a 0 or 1 strutt design ?

Thanks, Top

Re: Switch Lineup

As far as I know the H3 has 3 front bridal settings & 2 at the back, so you should be able to tune it to fly how you like.

Re: Switch Lineup

Looks to me like the H3 is going to pick up from where the E5 left off, regarding Switch wave kites.
