Re: Soloshot3 a New way to film kiting

I think there is quite a few of us that have been waiting that long. How is the weather proof protector. Does it function ok with it on. I was considering adding it to order. (Wish they threw in s free one for the wait)

Re: Safety release on Ozone Reo

Did you hit your safety with your kite high? Always rig your kites safety line to be the top front line. Ie if your landing to the left it will be your right line. Fly your kite forward to edge of window until wing tip nearly touches and hit release and pull your safety line low at same time as taki...

For some it's a skatey board that breaks the fins to slide easily. For others it's an alive board that is super responsiv...

Re: Your Kite Pump is Killing you (WMFG Kite Pump Review)

I have the same problem with the hose with new ozone kites. Keeps popping off, as it does with others who have borrowed pump, even with the twist method. Definetly needs a hose redesign. I'm going to try taping adapter nozzle onto hose, and a layer of tape on nozzle as well, before I hack it to bits...

Re: Tried different bars but my kite STILL drifts to the rig

This is an interesting one. I launched my kite today and noticed that it was slightly pulling to the right, not to hard but enough to be noticeable. I brought the kite up to noon and let go of the bar completely and even when the bar was completely horizontal it would drift to the right. So, I land...

Re: Kite not flying straight, what to check for?

My friend had this problem with their 2015 drifter, which may be similar to yours, or at least worth checking. (They are a sponsored rider) The swivel was also not working as well as new. They figured out it was caused, not by uneven line stretch but from looping the kite one direction a lot. This h...

Re: Serious pinholes issues on the 2014 Ozone REOs

I am the original poster of this post, and I feel like I need to add something. I just spoke to a local kiter-friend here in Miami. Turns out he bought a brand new Ozone and the kite has leaking problems. He contacted Ozone and requested that they replace the kite. (It is brand new) He got the same...

Re: Kiting in 50-60 knots

I walked (the dog) in two separate storms this year that it blew 60kn. Trees and branches were snapping, it was full on leaning just walking. Wet sand was being whipped down the beach. You had to yell to hear someone right beside you. We went up to a small creek that runs into the ocean in front of ...

Re: Ozone Reo 2015

From what I've heard base colours available for the 2015 reo are yellow or orange or blue. The base colour is in the middle of the kite with panels of black and white on wing tips. They have some printed colour around logo & size of yellow and red. They look good. Be interesting to see what bridal o...
