I like with flexi strike 2 alot. Great feel, impressive lift, little bar pressure. I was on 2005 fuels till I switched to flexi. Fuels are good and this is not a put down to SS & I miss the one pump, but I like flexi's approach to the 5th line attachment point and bar set-up better. If you test it o...

Once you notice the potential of an "oh sh*t" moment, line break, line tangle, lines reversed, crazy gust...whatever ... you need to pull the release ASAP. It is difficult to release during the event. There is a small window of opportunity to save yourself. Some people will only learn from mistakes ...

Do-able. ******* Most of the season (water temp 45F and above), I am comfy in a 4/3 and wear thin but warm gloves (called O'neill fluid seam weld 1.5MM). That works on the milder days pre and post , but I think you are refering to Dec, Jan & Feb. the more extreme days (typical winter 35F degree wate...

Like RickI...I also have been getting some water time with my skimboard. With each session I learn something and enjoy it more. Slick waterstarts, pure fun in the smooth bay or out in surf. A totally different feel or style as far as leaning, foot work and edging. I've been out in light wind for mos...

have we really come that far?

I bet if I flew my Naish 11M AR5 from 5 years ago it would still be equal to most of the kites flown today. Think about it, have we really come that far? I wish it were true that every year a new kite would come along with more power, more lift, more range... could you imagine where we'd be today if...

Snapper is on message. more power+ more lift = more hype. this year's kite has subtle changes over last year. I am sorry I brought up the topic of design. Why does this discussion get clouded & bogged down with brand bias and personal attacks? That's the true meaning of parasitic drag. I am learning...

"How much of a loss in power is there between an '04 17 and an '05 15?" +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Yes, there is a loss in power between the two and you will notice a difference. I do not agree with Fatfish. It is misleading to say the 05 has a lot more power this year. I currently ...

I recently bought a 2005 Fuel 15M & 13M. I have always been a big fan of SS kites, especially the one-pump & splitstrut innovation of 04, but besides the new ATR, there is not too much new to celebrate with the 2005 fuels. *ATR relaunch system... (all terrain relaunch). Still waiting for any info on...
