Re: Near fatality at Hermanus today December 12 2018

I'm just wondering why it's commonly acceptable to do do kitesurfing without helmet and impact vest. If you drive a car you buckle up, if you ride motorbike you've helmet, but 99% of expert kitesurfers do it without any protections. So inconsiderate. Wearing a helmet kitesurfing is always a trade o...

Re: ozone Hyperlink V2 wishes

I struggle to understand why Soul is compared with Hyperlink? It is similar to comparing a C-kite to a allround-freestyle tube. Both are great but for different things. Is it a marketing thing from FS, or where did it come from? Its because both kites are marketed at the cross over point from LEI t...

Re: Ozone R1 V3 is out?

Hmmm, and V3 is not anymore exists in Ozone home page? Strange story, second time. Anybody know why? Ales It was never up on the site officially. hence the "hide" at the end of the URL. Some people decided to share the link of the unfinished page prematurely. The main background picture was of the ...

Re: Got my hands on the Quark!

After a lot of badgering, Noir Matter have agreed to practically replace (huge discount) my Quark. I think they are finally starting to take their customers a bit more seriously. Let's see how long it takes to get here.

Re: Hydrofoil Videos

Take a ride with me on my Foilboard Racing setup through my local spot. As the new R1V3 kites are arriving soon, I found this a fitting sendoff to the R1v2 after almost 3 years of successful racing.

Re: Got my hands on the Quark!

As my Quark is gone and Noir Matter will not replace it, I tried my Go Pro Fusion 360 in my U-Go Line mount. Works pretty well. Takes a bit more work in Post to get the result, but better than buying a new Quark and dealing with bad customer service from Noir Matter. Also the Fusion is 100% Waterpro...

Re: GoPro Fusion 360 on kite lines?

Here is a video of the Go Pro Fusion in my U-Go Line-mount using Final Cut and keyframes on the Roll Axis to Level the Horizon. Worked great. Super happy I will not need to buy another Quark from Noir Matter. Click on the Video to start playing it. https://www.facebook.com/kitechino/videos/204611100...

Water Sport review of the Go Pro Hero 7 Black

Hi everyone, I had to get the new GoPro 7 Black as my Hero 6 is at the bottom of the ocean thanks to Noir Matter. Here is a short review on the action camera and see that Go Pro has improved and what they have screwed up again. It covers mainly how the new features stack up for use in Kiting and oth...
