Re: Intermediate kiter, ready to buy a new 10m, thoughts?

Look for a closeout air rush lithium. Easy kite to fly, good range, boosts easily, self launch and land no problem and relaunches effortlessly. Perfect kite to start out with and unless you're the unhooking type you won't outgrow it. I use it in the waves and it's awesome too.

Re: High Y vs Low V bars

Low Ys seem to be much more suitable to self landing than high Ys. Also I have noticed than some kites with a high Y don't sit on the ground when tethered to an anchor as quietly as a low y kite.

Re: Cabrinha, Airush or Liquid Force for first kite?

I have had Lithium's for years as well as many other brands. I think this type of kite is great for a beginner because it relaunchs easily, is fairly stable, turns wuci but not squirrelly, has great low end power and when you get better self launches and lands beautifully. Many people think it's a b...

Re: Amundson JohnO or PRO X

Hey Matt. We met at KP (obx) last Fall. You kindly gave me a new style hose for my WMFG pump. I recall you had a cool looking Amundson board on the beach, might have been a JohnO. Thanks for the review, helpful.

Re: Interchanging Bars with Kite Brands

Anybody tried V bar on Core XR4? The Core bar has a high Y. Asking as V is much easier to self land than Y.

Re: Most Comfortable Harness

Sorry but there is no such thing. It is different for every body shape and riding style. You just have to try them. It is like asking what is the most comfortable shoe? That's the correct answer. I will say that after trying different waist harnesses they all hurt my back in the end. Best one was t...

Re: Which harness has the lowest hook?

Got a bad back and use an ION Echo seat harness with a Dynabar sliding rope. Really low, never rides up, never had any issues with back pain. That's exactly why I bought the Dakine Fusion, getting off subject here but the Fusion hook is a little higher which I like over the Nitrous I was using prio...
