Re: WtF man. Will I ever learn transitions...?

Thanks guy. I'll try the 3rd technique a bit more but I reckon you need to be med to high powered to pull that off when learning and I probably need to be more aggressive with the kite too. I was doing patchy toeside before I went strapless and now I'm struggling to get that back again but I've only...

WtF man. Will I ever learn transitions...?

Hey gang I have this dream of cruising around up on the foil doing smooth carving turns, zig zagging through swells and other kiters, big smile on my face and the wind in my hair, the only time my board touches the surface is when I water start at the beginning and come in at the end. Reality, my se...

Re: Ozone Click in Bar

Got my ozone click bar 5 months ago. Weigh 83kgs. Looped the crap out of the kite, probably 60 x 2 hr sessions. The lines haven't stretched / shortened 1mm, very impressive. They are starting to fray though and I have replaced the bungee depower rope today actually with the spare that comes with the...

Re: Shoulder friendly freeride kites?

Bandit and Ozone Enduro have light bar pressure but not freeride kites The Ozone Enduro isn't a "freeride kite"? Have a word with Ozone about that. :wink: FREERIDE: For Freeriders the Enduro excels no matter what board you choose to ride. Whether on a twin tip, surfboard or foil board the smooth po...

Re: Shoulder friendly freeride kites?

Lastly, I also owned the ozone hyperlink and I think the enduro is similar if not lighter but you need long bar throw on a foil kite to control it. I also own the 8m and 12m soul but they have heavier pressure than both IMHO.

Re: Shoulder friendly freeride kites?

Also my wife flies the enduro on the 45cm wakestyle bar which has a short throw (still 4 lines) without any performance issue in sizes below 12m and the kite has a freeride setting which I haven't tried.

Re: Big Air/Kiteloop Progression Kites

Looping the 10m enduro on 20m or 23m lines 8s is my preference. Dont use the standard 25m lines on the enduro though for looping. FX comes std with 22m lines for comparison

Re: Big Air/Kiteloop Progression Kites

I owned FX (2017 and 2018 models) for 2 years and now Enduro v2. I didn't find the FX recovered as quickly to 12 after looping like the enduro does but it did generate more line slack on the load and pop when unhooking.

Re: Big Air/Kiteloop Progression Kites

You'll never get a definitive answer, it's all personal preference. IMHO when looking for the perfect jumping kite you need to decide between height, hang time and looping ability. Kites that have awesome boost and hang time are usually weak in their kite loops like the Pivot, Slash, Bandit and XR. ...
