Re: Evo vs Vader?

Yes, I was a bit worried at first.

But it seems to be the same strength as before.
Have about 35 days on it.
Looks about the same as FST before after that time.

My Helium Vader does hold up pretty well.

I recently got myself a 5'3" EVO in Helium. I didn't bother weighing it, I'm anal, but not that anal.
I made it a habit of weighing all my boards when they are new and writing the numbers down.
It is the only way to know if your board has taken on water after a ding.

Re: FireWire Evo KiteSurfBoard

I got a Vader in Helium tech.
Weight is pretty insane for a kiteboard.

No dents after 10 sessions or so.
So it seems to hold up to my abuse.

Re: How do you rig your lines ?

I was actually thinking "no other kites" = likely to self launch. ;-) And the other two spots down here (Sunset/Karmers) I frequently go to, do not have enough room to lay out the lines to the side. Guess I simply never go to spots where rigging to the side is required. Almost all spots I go to get ...

Re: How do you rig your lines ?

You are right - I would have been thinking the same - but the poll shows (till now) this is apparently not the case, as 60 % dont change even if crowded/other kites on the beach ? No your wording is just bad. If you meant "crowded", you should have written that. You mentioned cape town, so for exam...

Re: How do you rig your lines ?

I do C and D mostly. A if needed. If it is windy, I almost always do D. After reading the other thread I tried to do A in very strong winds again and seriously it is a huge mess. If you have a firm sandy beach and 30 knots, the lines get blown over each other creating additional tangles all the time...

Re: Reinvent the kite comp

Is there any specific reason why kitesurfing needs competitions? I have not seen competitions work for any boardsport in a natural environment. Watched a few surfing competitions and that was stupidly boring, watching everyone paddle around. Snowboarding has the same issues kitesurfing has, if you h...
