Re: biggest regret purchase

Gopro remote. I used it maybe a total of 3 hrs but it sat for a year. Then next time I tried to use it it wouldn't charge, wouldn't turn on - nothing. Totally tits-up. Customer service guy tried to help but in the end its dead. Since it sat for a year - no warranty left. Wasn't salty, sandy, cracked...

Re: Switch Lineup

But with no Nitro and no onshore wave kite, there nothing here for me.
They still have plenty of N-6's on hand - buy up a bunch of them. Not sure why you think the new H3 wouldn't work in onshore waves?

E6's are all kinds of fun too

Re: How dangerous is this?

3M surf? No life jacket on the kid? Seems unbelievably stupid no matter his skills. Having said that - it's his child & should the worst happen he will pay a lifetime of misery & regret which would be totally on him, she'd just be dead. I wonder what the laws there would have done to him if the wors...

Re: Nosaro Costa Rica Beta

Light wind, great waves. You may get lucky & get a session but I'd only take a big kite you like riding directionals with. Foiling is possible

Firewire Vader Helium

Any change in the performance of these boards vs the standard FST boards last year? Claims are that they are stronger & lighter so I'm curious if you were - say - riding a 5'1" FST should I be thinking the 4'10" in helium construction? Any other thoughts or insights? I have my old 5'1" Vader but I d...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

For those who tried the Element 6, could you tell which kites of other brands are similar in terms of performance and flying characteristics? They remind me a lot of Slingshot Rally's - only better. Anyone having issues trying to order from the website lately? I wanna give them my money and order “...

Re: Element 6 what size?

Wow, Not sure what version your referring to in the Nitro, for me the Nitro 6 is anything but slow & doggy in any wind,even the Nitro 5 was not slow & doggy. I had N4 & N5. Never tried the 6. I had them in 7M & 14M & flew the 14 mostly on snow. I was never really thrilled with them & flew the E5's ...

Re: Element 6 what size?

I agree with Faxie. The 12 turns so fast & smooth. Boosts while snowkiting with my 12 have been super floaty & fun. Kite redirects so nice, landings are sweet. I can't imagine you'd need larger unless you are flying frequently in really light wind. The 12 E6 will fly a lot more lively than your N12 ...

Camera & Acsessory Quality

Which camera seems to have the best overall quality (gopro type)? Also if you like the quality of product you use do the accessories match with that quality? The reason I ask is - I have a GP Hero 4 silver. I have no issues with the product quality of the camera even though I'm not super techy. Howe...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Its pretty easy to be totally stoked on a new kite in its 1st few flights. All crispy and shiny & something different than what you were flying before. I was like that with a few different kites in the past & then you start to notice the nuanced things you don't like. Maybe there's an incident that ...
