Re: The Wind Window Explained

Someone needs to explain lofting to this girl. The majority of accidents and deaths over the last 2 years were from lofting. You do not " chill out" with the kite at 12 :angryfire: .

Re: Core GTS3 vs Airush Union

The Union is NOT a 5 line kite. Airush kites today have fairly light bar pressure. Check out http://www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/Kite ... -Union-9m/ for a good review.

Re: Site Visitors - How About Speaking to the Locals First?

Politeness and common sense has seemed to be thrown out these days. At my site we have a local verbal truce with the surfers so that we launch/land and kite about 300 yds down wind of them. Not a problem since we both have a great parking area. Well people visit and instead of asking locals what to ...

Re: What is the value of trainer kites? I don't get it.

Gee, that pic is quality. Full kite, on land, no helmet, no impact vest and power lines down wind.

Re: Advice on being kiteboard gear dealer?

I too will agree that Graeme is spot on. I teach AND work for a shop and the retail side does not do much for us. The internet sales kill us, especially the closeout sales. Someone/Shop will pony up a lot of money to buy out the season end deals from the importer and then turn around and sell them f...

Re: Core - I'm giving it to you straight

Just an FYI on my personal issues with the bar. If you untwist your lines by manually twisting the spinner be careful to not twist the release by accident. The manual spinner is right above the release and I have by accident had the release go. I am not a fan of the bar where it relates to everythin...

Re: The Duke - A Nobel Addition To The OR Mako Family

NH, I own Vanguards and have about 2+ hours in on a Duke. The VG is a surf machine and loves waves. The VG will outperform the Duke on good waves for a true surf style rider. The VG was designed for surfing. On flatwater conditions both my 5'4 and my 5'2 VG go upwind better than the Duke when ridden...

Re: Test Naish Ride 9m 2014/2015 (version III)

Hi, can you please giver us your background? I've been kiting for 12 years, teaching full time for 10 years and riding naish Ride's I, II and III and they kiteloop pretty darn good. I actually enjoy looping them better than the Park.

Re: Shinn Shinnster vs Spleene Zone 5.3

I agree with NEKite....I think he hit it on the nail that comparing the 2 boards is very very difficult since they are 2 different beasts. I have not ridden a modern Zone but have a lot of time on the old zone, and a Litewave DV8 (in the same ball park). The Shinnster and the BRM Paipo are totally d...
