Hyde Kite!

Postby Windigo1 » Sat Mar 14, 2020 1:52 pm

I stumbled across this yesterday it's pretty rare I find a kite company I had never heard about. https://hyde-sails.odoo.com/hydekites-1

They have a complete line-up even a single strut foiling kite! We keep hearing that kite companies don't make money and are struggling but yet several new companies lately!

Oh well more choices is not a bad thing!

I've got the Hyde one-strut kite, the Voodoo, in 6m and 10m sizes. Absolutely love them for foiling, waves, and even the random twintip session. The little 6m is quickly becoming my favorite kite I've ever owned. It really does it all. I've demo'd a 7m Enigma, their freestyle kite, and was equally impressed. Didn't have the guts to loop it that day, but really enjoyed boosting with it. I really need to get one!

Good kites at great prices.. can't beat that!

Hyde is a huge sail company so I'd say they are probably have all the manufacturing equipment from that 👍 they just need to get a few designer to create a few designs.

I kite on Gaastra kites. No complaints and they are half the price of other brands.

Hyde kites are designed by dsd designs as Dano was a slingshot designer for yrs.
So like dgd designs i.e. reedin same deal from dsd designs they also makes other brands.
Lots of market direct and they are all pretty good.

Looks like the scene of a washed up kite "designer". All the various wreckages litter the shore. All those "playings" with one struts, just couldn't quite pucker the courage or wits to lose them all. If you look at the massive image of flat water kiting you might know why.

Why do you do that? Complain about something you know nothing about.

If you don’t have anything but negative crap to share without any actual first hand experience with the gear, maybe just keep it to yourself.

I have a quiver of Dano’s wave kites. Their awesome kites with a long lineage of incremental development. Top tier materials and construction. Very refined feel at the bar.

Why do you troll so much. If I knew nothing that would be interesting. But I certainly know something, more than you, so how much does that make you know?

You will find that Dano's kites had the often complaint they didn't turn fast enough for the flat water crowd aka "wave" riders. Anyway what is the kites you mainly use now again?

This might help you, or at least others understand you.

I own three of Dano's kites. Two 8's and a 6. Picked up the second 8 because I really liked the first and the second was the same kite but with a static bridle. It was like new and a really good deal but I also wanted to explore the difference a pulley makes. The static bridle is definitely faster to initiate a turn or correction and has more feedback at the bar, not more bar pressure, but more feedback. The trade off is the pulley takes away from that precise feel but lends greater top end range and comfort in gusty conditions. It's been a worthy experiment that has better informed my kite buying since.

If I contribute on topic experience and you post off topic clips in effort to attack doesn't that make you the Troll?

How many of Dano's kites have you owned? Do you even ride LEI kites? I guess we're just supposed to put stock in what you've heard is the most common complaint?

FYI. When you display the exact traits you accuse others of, it gives the impression that you might not have a very accurate understanding of how you project on here. Calling someone a troll in a purely trolling post, or say accusing someone of poor quality evidence while siting a Joe Rogan podcast is a pretty glaring example of the way you operate. Must be one of those things you can't see clearly from the inside. Like hearing your voice on tape and it sounding different from what you perceive.

also FYI, I use a bunch of kites.

Foiling on clouds and small solos mostly now, but have a few of Dano's BWS designs and a few C kites left.

Hey Jumpy just because you can talk doesn't make what you say right.
