Re: Wave Kiting – doubt about specific quiver vs. technique

Wave kiting with a Nugget...hmm..Tried other boards?
I too own a Nugget and like it a lot but for wave kiting it's just not that great. I only use the nugget when the wind is too little for my (real) surfboard.

Re: Slingshot SST compared to 2012 Rally in Madison, Wi.

Thanks for your review. Could you give me your opinion on the upwind capability? I suspect it to be less than the Rally since the drift-ability will come from a position further away from the edge of the wind window. Also wondering about the size difference. In my opinion the rally feels 'big'. Thou...

Thanks Toby,
It says thermal winds 15-20 knots. But then windfinder is reporting only 8 knots.

Anyone with the wright info would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Razor vs catalyst vs rally

Don't know about the others, but i own Rally's.
Perfect kite for me (strapless surfboard) and overall just a very good kite. But a Rally for kitelooping? You will be better of with other brands or the RPM.

Re: Foilboard yes or no?

Thanks all. I am now convinced I should get me a foilboard. Will try it first with the Rally 10 and if that doesn't work in the lowest winds, maybe i'll get a 12. And sell the 17 and the Nugget... Any specific details I should look for in the foilboard? I've been kiting since the first Wipika Classi...
