Re: Cabrinha Contra vs Ozone Zephyr 17m

Badgb21....You nailed it with comments on the Contra 17 and 15. Could not agree more. Love these two kites.

Re: 2018 Neilpyrde harnesses?

I purchased a Proton. The Atom felt too hard when I was trying on. I have used the Proton for 20 plus sessions now and it has broken in nicely. Straps are too long so I will cut 6 inches off these and reseal. It is a nice firm hardness on the lower back. I had an NP softer one from circa 2016 but th...

Re: Video of Ram Air Inversion Disaster

Wind looks very marginal and most kites would be unstable.

Re: Kite sizes

Really subjective. You can get away with another 11 or 12 as you can vary board sizes or knots on the lines to adjust power required. I had a 14M Switch but now love the 15 contra.

Re: choosing twin tip size you give more importance to your weight or how much you are overpowered or underpowered?

Really good questions. I started with a 12m and 144 TT and as I progressed I bought larger and smaller kites. 8-19 I also experimented with boards, shapes/sizes/thickness. I now have 136 to 170 boards and can mix and match depending on conditions. Always take a couple of kite sizes and board sizes t...

Re: Fireball & Swivel Danger

I also attach my kite bag when kiting ...
