Re: Ozone Zephyr V6 boosting tips

my guess is it's not the kite but your edging technique and timing. every kite is different and it's normal that you need a couple of sessions to get used to the model and find the specific sweet spot. for a good jump you need a clean as possible pop. that gives you height and control in the air. it...

Re: 14 meter Kite Advise

love my ozone edges but not sure it's the right kite for your needs. the edge flies super far forward into the wind window similar to foil kites and if you come from more all-round kites can feel initially a bit weird and might need some time to get used to. it's great for boosting especially on th...

Re: 2021 LEI kites for airstyle

as you plan to use the kite in lower winds i would rather recommend light wind kites. both the edge and rebel are great for boosting and have great hangtime but they are not my favourites for light winds (heavier 5 struts and tricky to relaunch). you might wanna look at light wind specific kites suc...

Re: Kite quiver for TT and Foil suggestions

i currently ride 15m ozone chrono v4 for sub 15kts TT and foil. really enjoy the foil kite for hangtime on TT and being able to kite in practically no wind on my foil. 8m + 11m ozone edge v10 for TT and foil >15kts amazing depower, lift and float. 8m also loops very well and i love it on foil in med...

Re: Newbie - advice needed

would recommend a bigger size probably something like a 13/14m . look for a kite with good depower which will allow you to handle the high end of the wind range better. buy used only from someone you know how he handled the kite and ideally try it out before buying to see if you like it. you can als...

Re: Help Finding the Holy Grail Light Wind Boards

Great infos here from the others. I started out foiling first and then convinced with my wife to join after initial hesitation from her side. I can tell you now she loves it even more than riding on a TT. It's much smoother especially in choppy water and can really be a meditative experience once yo...

Re: First kite for a very, very beginner

Think about taking a vacation/trip to a reliable wind location where there is a good kite school. I suggest at least 2 wks so you will have about 1 wk course until you are independent and then have enough time to practice for another wk under the same conditions. IMO this will prepare you better to ...

Re: 11m faster kite vs 12m better low end

i had 6/8/10/12 as well as 7/9/12 and now 8/11. now i would say 7/9/12 is ideal but it's also a lot of gear if you use it alone (vs sharing with partner is different story). if you want to reduce costs or you can/have already a foil the 8/11 is a nice combo. from my experience the limitation is mai...
