Re: Best bankrupt?

Even after knowing this I still ordered a third Roca (with a huge discount) those kites are awesome. If the bladders can't be repaired there are generic one like Airtime bladders that will work. You can get valves and bladders from most of the kite fixing companies. I have been kiting for a long tim...

Re: 30m lines flown thoughts

I tried longer lines on several of the 17 I have owned and I don't like it. It gives you more power in the down Stoke but it slows the kite down when you bring it back up. I prefer a faster kite and getting most out of it by flying it skillfully. However on a large foil kite it works because it's​ m...

Re: Lightwind Kite recommendations (Big guy)

My absolute favorite is the Best Roca 17 it is flawless fast, powerful, huge wind-range light bar pressure crazy hang-time. Best is potential...

Re: Best bankrupt?

I just ordered a 9M Roca from a dealer I know. Now I will have a 17-12-9 I figured that was a safer move than online. That is such a shame Best going under the Roca is a phenomenal kite for Big air/ Old School. I have been riding Best kites for 10 years almost I also have fond memories of my waroos ...

Re: Axis aluminum foil coming soon

I have 2 Axis kiteboards and an Axis Surf and they are brilliant everything I have tried from Axis so far has been top notch! If they make a foil that may be what's needed to win me over!

Re: Best bankrupt?

I wrote to someone who works for Best yesterday and that person did confirm that there is no plans to close the business but they acknowledged that the company is going through rough times.

Re: Better kite to Jump Higher and tricks old school

In terms of LEI The Best Roca is amazing it's designed for Old School Big Air keeps you up there forever and brings you don't super soft almost impossible to have a harsh landing! As far as the foils go the FS Sonic V2 is the real deal!

Re: What's your favorite lightwind kite?

Best Roca 17 amazing kite perfect all the way. Turns fast huge wind range 7 to 20 knots for me (210) goes upwind like a rocket, light bar pressure jumps easily even with little wind and the hangtime is phenomenal. Super stable in the air feels like a 5 struts kite even though it has 3 struts. Relaun...
