Re: Good hooded 5/4mm wetsuit?

I use a Hyperflex Amp 4/3 Wind series. Have you had it long? I bought an Amp a few years back because it was cheap, but it wasn't as warm as the NPX zealot I had before that and it only lasted half as long as the NPX. I got just over a year of use out of it and then every seam on the entire suit st...

Re: 2014 Zephyr vs Flite?

Quick note regarding the OR bar (Disclaimer: I've been riding OR for 4 years now.) I'll agree it's a very basic bar, and have actually pointed out things that could be improved, however, I really enjoy the simplicity and have never had issues with the QR or the rollover. The bar gets the job done, ...

Re: Next Gen Mako - Timeless Design

I am a loyal OR customer and have owned a couple of Makos - but I now ride one of these:

Rides great (like a Mako!) and it's a work of art!

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite: Join the Light Wind Revolution

XL recommends Flite 17 because it is a business decision He is not going to recommend Core 19 7 You're over the line here. Talk up your kites all you want, but impugning XL's motives with zero evidence because they don't like your kite the most is whiny, petulant, and makes you sound like an jerk. ...

replacing lines before they break?

I'm interested in peoples' opinions and experience on when you should replace flying lines. My bar has ~90 sessions on it and there are a few places on the front lines with some minor fraying. Is it best to a) not worry about it till they either break or start looking really bad b) replace them as s...

Re: Average Joe Kite Review- Light wind kites

My compliments on an interesting and informative set of reviews -- very well done! Could you comment a little more on how the kites acted at the 20 mph end of your test wind range -- particularly the extent to which they depowered using bar trim (your reviews emphasized how well they went to the edg...

Re: Recommendation on cold weather kiteboarding gloves

I have moderate Raynaud's syndrome and my fingertips start going numb before most people's. I also don't like to kite unless I have enough dexterity to fix and adjust stuff on the water, and I'm susceptible to forearm cramp from gripping against stiff gloves or mittens. After years of trying many of...

Re: Friendly kite for gusty conditions or when overpowered

I find my Ocean Rodeo prodigies work incredibly well in gusty, holey conditions with big peaks on the gusts.. Very stable, quick and predictable depower on the bar, and a very nice characteristic of not turning fast from small bar movements but turning pretty darn quick when you yank the bar hard. G...
