Independent kite test

Postby Guttorm » Thu Feb 08, 2024 10:28 pm

There are very few good independent kite tests, mostly all has their own agenda for selling more kites, so
Let's make a list of the good ones 🤙🤙

1. The best independent kite reviews I have found is from this guy, Jason Montreal he is a +30m kiter so he knows his stuff and tells all the pros & cons on each kite 🤙

Other ones? 🤙

I would love a platform that allows user reviews and recommendations, akin to the system found on Amazon. I understand that this approach has its limits but would be IMO useful.

Too many people are sponsored by brands, you would not be able to tell affiliated person from regular users and I would argue that affiliated people would leave more reviews/comments than actual customer.
Fortunately kite these day are are soo good that its matter or wanna jump higher but big air kite, wanna do some tricks but 3 strut all round kite wanna ride in waves or foil buy wave kite.
