Re: Compact size Harness for freestyle?

When it fits your body the Ride Engine harnesses are the best! Nothing comes close and it is worth every penny.

Re: Ride Engine 2018 Harnesses

I'm using the Team Harness for two years in a row and it is still like perfect like it was right from the first minute. I didn't had to try different sizes before deciding with which size to go because I have used the Ride Engine size chart that worked perfectly for me. Nothing came close from other...

Re: Shinn Jackson foil 120

Dear Windmaker, where have you tried the JACKSON 135? There is no serial production board in this size. Could it be that you have tried a prototype with a too soft core? The Jackson I know has some plenty of nose rocker. The board has a typical weight of the boards build in snowboard construction wh...

Re: Dakine C1 break-in?

That sounds funny! Is this a new sport to torture his own body instead with piercings with bad fitting harnesses?

Try a Ride Engine and when it feels good for the first time it will feel perfect forever with or without a wetsuit and it will cause no bruises and abrasions at all.

Re: 2017 Ride Engine vs Dakine C1

For yours I have been using mostly Dakine and other waist harnesses for kiteboarding. The Dakine Pyro and Renegade have been my favorite harnesses in the past. Now for more than one year I'm really stoked by the performance and comfort of the Ride Engines Harnesses. I have started with the Hex Core ...

Re: Looking for a good kite for Foiling, any tips?

I like the CORE GTS4 a lot! On the first sight it may surprise that a freestyle kite works good in combination with a foilboard but the GTS4 does. A freestyle kite has to give a direct bar feel that is very helpful on the foilboard too. The GTS4 is an allrounder or Universal kite (CORE Marketing) th...

Re: Kite pulling to one side

Inflate your kite and hold it on the middle strut in the air like it would fly on 12. The tips have to hang down by their own weight only a few cm above the ground. Than let two friends check the position of the tips looking from the side. Mark the two positions on the ground were the front lines ar...

Re: Harnesses – new tightening system?

We had it already at the end of the 90s. Neil Pryde offered their automatic system which was working. The Automatic System The Automatic Spreader Bar adjustment system is a real innovation in harness design. Stronger, quicker and more comfortable than standard systems, it is made from rugged, hard w...

Re: Freestyle board for lighter riders?

Hi Bruno, try the SHINN MONK! You will be impressed how easy it is to load it up even with only 140 lbs and how much pop you can squeeze out of it. If you have luck you could get MONK THE ONE for less money. The shape is identical with the MONK Gold which was launched a few weeks ago. http://www.shi...

Re: Paipo and Shinnster riders: asking for upwind tips

Mount a foil below and you will fly upwind! :wink: Even without a foil both boards ride really well upwind. But you have to find the sweet spot for your upwind stance by walking around. Even a wider stance can help to get more rail length engaged and to flatten the rocker. But the Cloud kites are pr...
