Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

I'm not a huge fan of the name but these are good points, I never chose a kite simply because of its name and I never didn't try a kite because of its name. As long as it's not a racial slur or something ridiculous that I'd have to explain to my kids, it's the kites that matter. Now North/DuoTone mi...

Re: WOO 3: Who has received it ? You Order date ?

My Woo3 arrived this week. Haven't had any wind since. Looks like the charger is different (2 prong, vs 4 on the old ones). Also, the mount is the full plexi box that mounts directly to the board. Not thrilled about that as it makes traveling with the boards harder as you can't lay them flat and sta...

Re: Soloshot 3 - soup to nuts review

@jakemoore - I built a bucket type windprotector for mine. I used a light plant bucket and cut holes for the screen and the lens. I was hoping to mount it to the round metal mount where the tripod connects, but realized (duh) that doesn't spin and since my bucket wasn't completely clear, the bucket ...

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

B&M who manufactures North kites and windsurfing sails uses the name under a licence - it does not own the name. North Sails Group, which owns the name, wants to buy B&M and threatened to not renew the licence if B&M refuses the buyout. B&M did refuse. Simple. Thank you! This was the single most in...

Re: Xensr ? Don't buy! No support

I have a similar issue in that my device failed and was sent back on RMA only it was 11/2016! They have been very good about replying to me using their tech support email. It sounds to me like they don't have any hardware to replace these and I'm not sure if there's any value in holding my breath at...

Re: Soloshot3 a New way to film kiting

The issues are real, but on a good note, the company is working to fix them. There was an update last week (i think) that helped a ton. And everything I've mentioned or suggested to them has either been addressed, is in the next release or they know about and are working on. That said, I do have a g...

Re: How old is your oldest kite you still ride on?

If anyone is looking to replace almost any of the kites mentioned here please Private message me. I have acquired a large collection of old kites that are barely used including a lot of old foils mentioned here. Most are slated for recycling but I’d rather see them used so if interested, let me know...

Re: Lift introduces electric foil!

At $5k, these would have sold like Bacon. At $12,500 they might sell a few to Richard Branson and the rest of us get to wait until someone finds a way to make this at a better price. I would have thrown $5k at these guys faster than the ATM could spit it out. For $12k I'd rather have a waverunner or...

Re: 2016 North Rebel

hm, interesting. It took me some time to find the low-end of the Rebel 12m when I switched to them in 2014. At first I thought they had no low end but eventually figured it out and got used to it. Never needed anything bigger than my 12m Rebel once I got dialed. Upgraded to 2015 with no issues. Rode...
