Re: Kitesurfing New Zealand north island round christmas

You probably won't like to hear it, but leave your gear at home and discover the beauty of the island without wasting time chasing the wind. You do not have much time and New Zealand is huge. We also currently experiencing an unusual early hot summer with no wind at all other than for foiling. I als...

Re: Puerto Rico Recovery Info

I just talked to one of my good friends from PR. He has a house close to Shaks and San Juan. Most of the Island still has no power. Many roads are closed and the main highway from Isabella to San Juan is packed. The usual 2 hour trip now takes 5 assuming you are leaving at 4am. Cell phone coverage i...

Re: This is unfair from Seabreeze.com.au

Hello seabreezecomau, I believe one of the main question was never answered publicly: Do you allow companies that do not use the traditional dealer network and sell direct to advertise on your website? If I recall correctly a few companies like Ben Wilson or Switch have stated that you ignore all re...

New Zealand has more coast line than the USA. With a population of 1 million on the South Island you will have a difficult time finding locals :)

Re: New Zealand

Hello LynchMob, You probably won't like my answer. NZ is huge and beautiful. If you are coming to discover this amazing country, leave your gear at home. 2 weeks is an extremely short time and being in the right spot at the right time will not happen without local knowledge. I traveled for 2 months ...

Re: Switch Legacy vs Naish Torch vs North Vegas?

I had a chance to fly all sizes. What surprised me most is the ease of use. The bar pressure is light, the depower insane and the smooth power development during the turn can probably only be achieved with a true C kite. The water re-launch is surprisingly easy and there is no need to pull on the 5t...

Re: Switch kites Element or Nitro 4?

Since you are coming from a SB go with the Nitro4. It seems to be the kite you are looking for. The Element is a pivotal turning kite that works exceptional well in waves but does not have the same lift as your SB.

Re: Switch bar - controller 2 - tested

Hello Oldnbroken,
Looks like North is using the same approach.

Any Dyneema line will stretch due to creep over time. It is the nature of the beast.
The good thing is that North and Switch addressed this issue and their loops now can be tightened.

Re: Switchblade 2014 vs Switchkites Nitro V3?

Not sure if the Switchblade has more grunt but it is heavier on the bar and maybe this gave you the static grunt impression. I always try to compare upwind performance and correlate this to power. The Nitro3 flies far forward in the window and wins hands down in upwind performance. The bar pressure ...
