Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Lewmt, just curious, why an inflatable for snow?
I've had foils - just seems inflatables are much more fun. Especially in gusty mtn conditions.

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

1st day out on snow on 12M new E6. Very light wind today - guessing 8-15. I only flew the kite for a few minutes & smooth is a very accurate description. Wife - who is a beginner - had a much easier time flying & relaunching the kite in such light winds than she'd had previously on E-5's & E-3's. Ki...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

I have a 12 & 9 coming any day. I bought into the anti-pulley rhetoric years ago when SS Ralleys came out. I've since owned BRM, Ozone, and Switch kites - all without pulleys. I'll be testing on snow but will have a great opportunity to run towards the kite on descents and check the drift. Of course...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

Just not sure about the 6 pulleys? Otherwise looks like a nice kite. Previous kites had no pulleys so ..... why ...... 6? I've flown E5's & 3's + had a couple of Nitro 5's. I really liked the Elements & build quality couldn't have been better. The N-5 was really nice in its upper ranges for size but...

Re: From San Andres Colombia to Panama via Albuquerque cays

Really cool shark story.....well written & descriptive! Way to maintain presence of mind! You wonder how often similar things happen under murky waters but you never know its even happening. Have you found good waves? I was recently looking at San Andres as a destination but all the videos are flat ...

Re: Where to find a snowboard for snowkiting

Keep checking ebay. I picked up a 172 Nitro for $90US that was a great board - super snappy & carvy and floaty on powder days & true twin tip. That included shipping btw. It was brand new & some old model + being 172 - nobody wanted the thing. Craigslist & pawn shops too

Re: Vader performance but tougher?

Had 2 holes (smallish) punched in the top while travelling....impossible to say what happened but 1 was punched clean through my travel bag + Dakine board bag. Maybe its nothing to do with the board & is a victim of strange circumstances. Are the new Helium models much different - other than being l...

Vader performance but tougher?

I have a 5'1 Vader & love the board. Seems to respond in every way I want it to & has helped me progress wave skills since I got it. Only problem seems to be durability. Since I hit a submerged rock I was thinking about a replacement but looking for something with really similar performance & better...

Re: I Do Not Know How Girls Work

Nah, the plumbing is pretty straight forward. It's the electrical that can be confusing. Classic! Its really pretty simple. Guys are always wrong. Even when we admit we're wrong and apologize we are still wrong for doing that....they'd prefer an admirable explanation. So - whichever board you choos...
