Re: 2015 Sector V6 and Slayer V3

Can you explain "wouldn't bother with Sector 60 on light wind days"? Have you tried the V6 in light wind? What was your experience?

Tug Hill

I see from the weather reports that Tug Hill has at least 6-12 inches of snow. Are there sites open to snow kiting for us now? Which sites should we go to?

Re: Ozone Chrono - High Performance DePower Foil For All Sur

Where I ride water there are only very unfriendly shorelines (no beach). Do you think Chrono could be launched and landed from a boat? How would this be done?

If I were an Ozone Zephyr Product Manager:

I give Ozone credit for developing the Zephyr at a time when the market movement was telling us that big kites were dead and that everyone needed only a 12m. And the Zephyr was maneuverable and had a good top end which added to rider safety in the event of increasing wind during a session. Now the l...

Re: Roadtrip

rvrrat BTW can your buddy from the Tug tell us which sites are open on the Tug? I hear that less sites are open than previous years.

Any Tug Hill sites open?

Are there any Tug Hill sites open to weekend riders? Which sites?

Hmmm, do we have to start putting a few dollars in the landowner's mailbox after a good session?

What size of Jimmy Lewis Model 3

I’m wanting to buy a JL Model 3 but don’t know what size, maybe 133 or 139cm? Advanced rider, 190 lbs [86 kg]. I want the board for specific conditions of well powered 20-35 knots in terrible chop, in fact they are more like up to 1 meter waves, very close together and with white caps. With my flatt...

Re: Do Kites Fly Better with Strut Vavles Closed?

I don't think the kite was underinflated. I always use a pump with a guage and in both cases I inflated to 7 psi. I am however dissapointed that I can't find recommended inflation pressure in the Ozone literature for 2013 Zephyr. (Ozone, where is the spec??). My other Ozone does say 8 psi and since ...

Re: Do Kites Fly Better with Strut Vavles Closed?

Interesting comment that the connection hose diameters are too small to help the main LE during a crash. But if you consider the kite as a pneumatic circuit where the connection hoses could be considered a flow orifice, and the strut volumes could be considered pneumatic accumulators, then open valv...

Do Kites Fly Better with Strut Vavles Closed?

Do kites fly better with strut inflation valves closed on a one pump system? It really seems that my Ozone Zephyr shows a difference when flying between all valves open and all valves closed. It seems to go upwind better with the strut valves closed. Maybe if the valves are all open the air in the b...
