Re: Flysurfer released Peak 4

Hmm.. 29 cells but they're only on the front 1/3 of the kite. And 11m is the largest now, lower projected area but hopefully faster? How much faster? Lighter than the Peak 3 12m. Not sure how I feel about the cells on the tips. They'll probably get rid of the wear that my current Peak3 has there but...

Re: Ozone alpha

Ozone had a very pretty single skin XXLite paraglider earlier and I'm glad they picked the Skywalk glove on the kite section too. Hopefully Flysurfer will fix the eartips of the Peak which look a bit weird (not clean as XXLite wingtips) both powered and underpowered The main thing that bothers me t...

Re: Ozone alpha

Alpha info has been added to their site now. And it lists the kite weights. https://ozonekites.com/products/water-kites/alpha-v1/ Looks like the Alpha 12m is 2.5kg which is lighter than the Ultra 12m at 2.8kg. The 10m Alpha lists 2.2kg which is close to the Cloud D1 10.4m at 2.15kg but smaller. If o...

Hmm interesting, the Alpha is a single strut kite that looks like a Reo

Re: Will spleene ever make the zone board again?

Oh Spleene! What have you done! :( As a self-proclaimed Zone aficionado and owner of the original 174x44, Zone 5'6 and SurfDoors 5'1 and 5'7 I was pretty stoked to see an update on the site a month back mentioning a new Zone was coming. I was dreaming of a new carbon Zone in a PVC foam construction ...

Re: Ozone Explore V1

Interesting. Doesn't look much different than a Peak3 to me. Most of the video looping shows a 6m. If their 12m is faster than my 12m Peak3 and comes in ultralight at a reasonable price, I might have to give it a try for water. There's a Gin Shaman 12m on eBay but from the landboarding forum, I didn...

Re: New Quick Release System?

Gaastra MQR2 Page 31 https://ga-kiteboarding.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/06/2015gk-brochure-v2-20150304-LW.pdf It just substitutes the bungee for magnets. I'm not feeling the dog-leash QR, it doesn't seem to have as much rotation as would be needed for a kite QR. Seems like the reason you ca...

Re: Custom Hardshell made in shop.. would it work?

Awesome idea! Not sure how well the resin would spread and saturate through the carbon/glass inside the bag though. And if you pour too much resin, wouldn't the structure become weaker? Edit: What I'd really like in a harness, other than the hardhsell and material that doesn't absorb water (have bot...

Re: Do you wash your wetsuit with fresh water?

Throw my suits in the washer after a sesh. Have been doing it for years. From back in the day in the top loaders with agitators and now front loaders. Use a little of regular detergent. Do the same for all my wet clothing/booties after each sesh. Yes, I know it's not recommended. Then I dry the wet...
