Re: Nobile Kiteboarding lies lies lies...

As from the official website: http://nobilekiteboarding.com/index_en. ... em&id=1079

Re: Bladders failure in major kite Production.

well the facts are: 1. I first found out this problem >6 months ago, it's caused by using wrong material for the bladder. Yes, someone did not test out the new source enough... And yes it's terrible with thousands of small cracks after using the kites 2-3 times. 2. The factory which produced the kit...

Any wind at Los Angeles in this lately season?

Hi all Californian Riders,

I'm coming for conference near Santa Monica this weekend.
I've been checking windguru there is no good forecast around the area...
I wonder if it's true that no good wind lately, and it's now in the bad season for wind....???

Thank you for your feedbacks!

Re: New Brand: Epic Kites

had a chance to check out the epic kites in the KTA event in Xiamen & test out the 14m screamer, I can say that Construction: no doubt one of the best and v detailed Performance: tried in lighter wind condition around 11-12 knots, it's fast as far as 14m concerned, i can jump higher with it and pull...

Re: Mark Shinn leaves Nobile Kiteboarding

hi S.A.,

can u share that why the board would be nicer with the mid-section thicker?

it's interesting to know as i thought the thinnest uniform (thickness) rail has better upwind performance, cut like a knife.... and better in popping????

thank u

Re: Cabrinha Switchblade 2009 Vs. Liquid Force Havoc 2009

haven't tried the new SB, but i reckon 8 pulleys in it's bridle system is not a smart design... and x8 times more risk of pulley failure!!!

and the IDS system is nothing new, just following Takoon or Nobile 08' design...

thanx for the reply, mates. My friend further mentioned that "My IKO instructor recommended the 17m": that's v sad! How come the instructor introduced the high performance kite that Len10's using to a beginner, and with such a big size!!!???? I reckon he is v irreponsible & not professional. It's wi...
