Re: Cabrinha Fireball update

With my kids kiting we have three harnesses and 6 bars for our 7 Cab kites. Switching to the fireball would be very expensive, to fix what?

Re: What don't you like about foiling.

I switched to kiting 11 years ago because the gear is so easy to travel with. I am so not getting into foiling - expensive as hell, huge gear, just not what I signed up for. Watching people swim in with kites, lines and foil board is not a selling feature. And btw, you aren't pissing off the wild li...

Re: Core XR Vs Cabrinha Switchblade

My 13 year old daughter is 110 pounds and can fly a SB for hours and doesn't seem to have any bar pressure issues (my SB's range from 2013 to 2016). The biggest Cabrinha kite she flew this summer was a 13m Contra, again no bar pressure issues. But then she is definitely stronger than most of the ele...

New Shinn Lineup

Just saw the new boards at http://www.shinnworld.com/, they look great. The ratcheting straps look awesome as well.

Re: mako 150 or 165

Had the 165, 140, now have the 150. Definitely go with the 150, it is the most fun of the bunch in my opinion.

Re: Cabrinha Switchblade 2016

I will elaborate just to be clear. Too many people don't approach this as a sport and aren't athletic enough to be safe on the water. Take some pride in yourself and get in shape, there will be situations on the water where you will need it. I have had one long swim in the ocean myself with a side ...

Re: Cabrinha Switchblade 2016

Bar pressure is perfect on the SB's, has been since 2013. This is just ill informed hating, I have flown lots of other kites with the same or more bar pressure including the Airush Lithium and Airush Varial X. As for high wind, the SBs have a bigger wind range than anything out there. If you don't l...

Re: Cabrinha Contra 2016 in 15M review ?

Just picked up a 2016 15m in blue and orange. Beautiful kite, construction looks really good. I was a bit surprised that there were no pulleys, have the new genegation of Contras (starting 2014 I believe) all been like this.? I'm sure it will fly well, just curious. My other kites are all Switcblade...
