Re: ? For Bill Hansen regarding 3 vs 4 strut design

Never having used a kite without a center strut, and based on reviews and a kite friend's opinion who has one and likes it, I just bought a 2012 two strut Naish Ride 8m. I have only put it up at a local (Colorado) field where it looked to fill and fly about as nicely as my previous favorite three st...

Re: Qualities of best wave kite well known?

When someone posts a kite is great, without comparing it's advantageous specifics to it's logical competitors, I discount the post as a pimp or from someone without significant experience.

Qualities of best wave kite well known?

Aren't the qualities fairly well known? Fastest turning with least power loss when the bar is cranked. Drift with least altitude loss while retaining best ability to turn on slackest lines. Quickest relaunch. As bomb proof as the bomb proofest. Upwinding important mainly for those who don't have man...

Re: RRD Religion

I wonder if Niall, J-GAR, Andyfly or anyone else who has tried the RRD Religion in waves, can compare with same size Slingshot RPM, Epic Renegade or Wainman __ in waves? Maybe a comparison as inclusive as this between a 6m RPM and 6m Renegade: http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2363142&p=64103...

Re: How is the wind in CC, Texas this time of the year?

I have lived accross the bridge from South Padre Island for four Springs. Historically April is the most reliably windy month from here to Corpus Christie. Today our coast is enjoying 20-30 mph. Yesterday it was about 13-17. Since April 1 I think only one day was kitable in SPI surf. More days than ...

Re: best bow/sle kite w/no pulleys (no C's please)

I'll second what steveb said the guy at the SPI Kite Roundup said about the Ozone Light. It was the only Ozone I tried, and just the 10m because that was about the size kite I was looking for to let me skimboard flatwater, and downwind surf, in lighter wind than would my beloved 05 9m Slingshot Dies...

Re: Where can i found the sync straps (only)

This might interest you, might be cheaper than straps alone. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Cabrinha-Sync-Backless-Binding_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ66Q3a3Q7c65Q3a10Q7c39Q3a1Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a0Q7c293Q3a1Q7c294Q3a100QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem4398697639QQitemZ290319857209QQptZLHQ5fDefaultDom...

Re: What did you think about the SPI Kite Roundup

I live here and am really enjoying the chance to try many kites in a short period of time. Of course sometimes the model and size I wanted to try was out on the water with somebody else. Not a problem if, like me, you can check again later or another day. I was surprised the Best people require you ...

Re: Kima versus RPM?

Why don't you guys go on hypeforum.com? I asked for input from people who have ridden both enough to compare. I fly my 07 9m Eclipse Nano SLE and my 05 9m Slingshot Diesel C kite frequently and can compare them exactly. They behave very much the same! I prefer the Nano mostly with my surfboard in th...
