Re: Cabrinha Omega HD 12 anyone? for beginner

Depower in 1:1 is good on the Omega- I don't miss 2:1 at all. You can push through the trim strap to pretty much double your depower throw if necessary.

Re: Cabrinha Omega HD 12 anyone? for beginner

My wife and I are still flying a full quiver of Omegas, and I think they are a great kite for a beginner. Because of the age, you need to make sure that everything is in good condition (pullys, lines, etc). The Omega's biggest selling point was that it was convertible from 2:1 to 1:1 (make sure you ...

Re: What kites to try - RRD, Ozone, Cabrinha, Ocean Rodeo, E

Thanks for the info Elliot. More than likely the cat would be the right choice for us in the Ozone lineup. I'm intrigued by the idea of doing the 13m Edge for a lightwind kite just for the float and jumps and maybe considering the 10m C4 or the 10 M Cat for the nice steady medium winds we get. With ...

Re: 2013 Kitty Hawk Demo Days

Regarding bar pressure on the Obsession, you guys are probably right about being powered up. Mark, the 13.5 fell out of the sky on me from a neutral position, slightly overflying me and then dropping. Could have been a lull as well given the weird wind shifts that day. I'd still like to try the 10.5...

Re: 2013 Kitty Hawk Demo Days

My wife and I also had a really good time yesterday at the demo days. We weigh 150 and 120 lbs and have been flying 07 Cabrinha Omegas since 2007 (7m, 9m, 12m for LW days). The only kites that I've briefly flown since then have been the 2012 Epic Renegade and the 2010 Switchblade, just to give you s...

What kites to try - RRD, Ozone, Cabrinha, Ocean Rodeo, Epic

I'm going to be testing some new kites this weekend- will be buying a new quiver sometime this season. I'll have access to RRD, Ozone, Cabrinha, Ocean Rodeo, and Epic's lineups. Have been flying a quiver of 2007 Cabrinha Omegas (7m, 9m, 12m)for the last 6 years in the 1:1 configuration (like a switc...

Re: How do you know if a bar fits with other kites?

Does this apply to the Cabrinha IDS bars too? I thought I remembered reading that the cab IDS bars and kites don't work with non IDS bars and kites.
