Comparing sizes for North Neo, Rebel and Dice 2015

Hello, I currently have a quiver of North Dice 2014 in 6 and 8 and Rebel 2014 in 9 and 12. As I am more and more getting into waves in the smaller sizes and getting more and more into unhooked freestyle in the bigger sizes, I am looking to change to a quiver of Neo and Dice (probably 5 and 7 Neo and...

Re: Did Hydrofoils already kill the Formula 70?

"Shitting bird stance" ? That is what racers do, on formula70 raceboards, but on hydrofoils you have the most perfect upright relaxed stance :thumb: https://scontent-a-ams.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t1.0-9/1238963_633630533374751_2006687548_n.jpg Well this looks quite similar to Formular Racing to m...

Re: North Neo 2014

I am riding a Rebel 12m, 9m and 6m from 2011 and I am going to upgrade this year. For the 12m and 9m I will probably stay with the Rebel, but as I am going more into waveriding I am looking to get a Neo in smaller sizes. For waves, the gap between the 9m and 6m Rebel was too big for me riding strapl...

Re: 2014 North Line Up

Hi Has anybody noticed the big crease lines that come up on the rebel 2014´s in the canopy at the end of the struts? Not a big thing as the kite still flies great! Yes, same for me on my 12sqm. However you can also see these lines in the original North products shots: http://www.northkites.com/typo...

Re: Tacking Technique

I am trying to do roll tacks, but I am only able to do them well when I have enough power in the kite. However I struggle to do roll tacks when I am underpowered. What are the key points for doing roll tacks underpowered?

Re: North LTD Race board 2012

spacemonkey, is the weight of 7.8kg from last year's board with or without straps? My North Race LTD 2011 recently drank a bit of water by leaking fin boxes, and I am not sure if I got the water completely out again.

Re: Those Who manufactures custom Raceboard? survey

I think for the national competitions the national organizations in every country may decide whether to allow custom raceboards next year. However in international competitions, only production boards will be allowed.

Re: GPS for racing. What would you suggest?

I have used my Motorola Defy for some race trainings now. Stored it in an Aquapac and put it under my wetsuit. I used the MyTracks app as a GPS tracking app. Worked fine so far, I could export this to gpsar and have a look at the statistics afterwards.
