Re: On Shore Wave Kites

I never tried Kahoona's but <2015 Catalyst and E5 are not grunty and they take you upwind almost as good as Edge and Nitro respectively.

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Doesn't matter what you call it. Everywhere I go the conditions happen to be that I ride down the wave with the wind in my back. For this kind of geometry I like the kite that flies back in the window and delivers smooth power in the turns. Flying back in the window doesn't mean bad upwind. Anybody ...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Onshore can be a lot of fun if you have the right kite and you know how to fly it. The waves are short and even if you get the long one the wind will tumble it, so forget down the line. You have to grab a piece and go up and down with it. Here is how I do it with a kite that flies back and turns smo...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

So how do the popular wave kites rate in your opinion in onshore winds Best "Cabo" Cabrinha "Drifter" Slingshot "SST" or any others you have experience with?? I had a Cabo before I got E4 and then E5, probably 2014. It was sitting back nicely for onshore with smooth power in the turns. Unfortunatel...

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

My definition of onshore is: wind and waves come from the same direction onshore at whatever angle. What is the difference? In onshore you ride the wave at different angles downwind. In offshore you ride the wave upwind. How the industry figured the same equipment would work for both? I don't know e...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Finally people are talking about onshore kite characteristics like it is an actual thing. Too bad we lost two kites in last 3 years. E5 and Ozone Catalyst <2015. I hope Bill H. comes back. He is sitting on a incredible niche in the market with both E5 and Nitro6.

Re: Shocking Winds!

Svenmark's theories on cloud formation from ionisation of cosmic rays have little apparent effect on temperature. How did you figure? Any study or just your daily dose of DeSmogBlog? Attribution is difficult though for one-off events. You got that right. "The study, based on observations and statis...
