Re: 12m and 15m chrono wind ranges on a TT in the ocean.

My choice would be the new 15m, when you do get a foil then re evaluate your needs, the 15m is a great size for land boarding in lighter conditions too.

Re: Airush Varial kite collapse while looping it.

From your post you sound like you are a pretty advanced rider so you may have tried some fixes already, do you know what year it is? I would also check the trimming and maybe let some of your friends ride it and see if they have any ideas on it. Good luck, I have the new 2015 Varial X ( 12m) and lov...

Re: What's wrong with airush Vx???

Apart from your unhappiness re the name etc, did you get to fly it and what do you think of how the actual kite performed, I have the new 2015 Varial X 12m as my personal kite and really like it, but am also looking to see how others are rating it performance wise.

Thanks

Re: Why are Kite Lessons so expensive in the US???

We set new riders up with instructors in the St Augustine - Jacksonville area for a lesson plan which lasts about 8 to 10 hours. This can be done at your convenience ( weather dependent) and the cost is $500.00. That works out in the region of $50 to $60 an hour. Once someone has done lessons and wa...

Re: Airush 2015 Range Now Online

This is what happens when you put boots on a Airush Board. The board could not hold the inserts for more than two sessions. Poor quality boards that are falsely advertised as boot compatible. Airush does not care about the safety of their consumer and continue to make false claims about their produ...

I work for a kite shop and most of the same factors that the rider looks for pertains to how we also choose what brands we want to sell /represent, the top two most important factors we look for (among others) are quality of product and customer service. Good quality in any product we carry is a mus...

Re: Freeride/All Around Kite for Beginner/Intermediate

Lithium is a good choice for you, I also recommend seeing if you can try a kite out to see what you like. At this time of year a lot of the kite shops and manufacturers start dumping the previous years models at a great price to make way for new gear. Where in NE Florida are you, our shop is in St A...
