Re: F. One Bandit size

It sounds like they made the kite smaller and advertised it as high upper end. So basically I bought an equivalent of an old 7m :) Yeah, I'm not a fan of the crazy days of the 40knots. I'm more a freestyle rider, and I don't like too much power when I try to unhook. But there are enough nice strong ...

F. One Bandit size

I currently have Bandit 2010 9m. Lately, I've been feeling overpowered with it (Wellington, NZ), and I thought to buy a smaller one, and upgrade on the way. Initially, I thought about a 7m, but after some thought I decided to go with Bandit 2016 8m (found a good deal too). I'd like it to be my main ...

Re: Torn F-One strut valves

Thanks for the additional options. In terms of price, I assume that including shipping it would be about the same as an NZ store and it would take more time to arrive. The complete bladders do look interesting, although they don't seem to have a one-pump valve. BTW, what is the S1 strut? If there's ...

Re: Torn F-One strut valves

That's a good tip, I'll try. Actually, I thought to contact f.one today, but I forgot about it.

Re: Torn F-One strut valves

The valves are torn. Need to buy first new valves, or better yet new bladders if it's a good price (couldn't find compatible ones so far).

Torn F-One strut valves

A flight damaged two valves of strut bladders in my kite (F.One bandit 2010 9m), they were torn and need to be replaced. The valves and the one pump system is similar to the one in slingshot (connected with thin hoses). Currently, I'm considering ordering new valves and replacing them myself: http:/...

Re: Hawaii

Thanks for the further tips. I wasn't clear, though, if it's possible to surf in Kihei in a north wind, or it's only possible to surf in a north wind on the north part of the island (kite beach area)?

Re: Hawaii

I'm debating between: 1. Go to a (shabby?) hotel in Kahului 3km from the spot such as Maui Seaside Hotel or Maui Beach Hotel. Then, if my focus is on surfing, I hope to walk there, and avoid car rental. 2. Rent a nice condo in Kihei (also should be a nicer area), and drive 25min to the spot. Car ren...

Re: Hawaii

I don't have any certification - I've been surfing way before there was IKO... Okay, I'll be in touch if I need 6m and can't find one. Actually, I don't prefer a strong wind. I have a 9m (f.one bandit 2010), which has a low range - upto ~30knots, and above that it becomes unpleasant. But if it means...

Hawaii

I'd like to spend a week in Hawaii in the middle of July. I read a few posts on forums, and it seems that the majority votes for Maui (kitesurfing or otherwise - hiking, etc.). Did I get it right? I have only 9m kite, and I prefer winds up to 30knots with flat water. In case I'll have to get a 6m ki...
