Re: North Rebel 5th line - any issues?

I have been a fan of Rebels for four years with a full quiver 12, 10, and 7m... Until now. The five line system does feel more direct then older four-line systems, although I think technology has now caught up. The inversions that I have experienced over the last three years have cost me considerabl...

Re: What do people like about kiting in waves?

Flats are great until.... you time the kite across the window and carve a breaking wave Be aware that... you can't do it the first time and the wave breaks you Then when you get that down, try a backroll or big air off a breaking wave that LAUNCHES you like a force you have never felt Experience th...

Re: Warning: if you try sliding hook you will never go back.

So I got frustrated trying to get the dynabar, so I went to West Marine and bought this Amsteel Dyneema line for $4 and a stainless sliding hook clip rated for 1500lbs for $34 and it works great. Toe side and beach walks are easy now. I doubt I will ever use a bar again in surf. :thumb:

Re: Which Cabrinha kites?

I have full rebel quiver, 7, 10, and 12 with settings for low bar pressure on 2012. Love it! Take the time to see what fits you and your preferences best.

Re: 5 line kites...are they any good???

I've had rebel 5 line quiver for about 4 years now and only recall 3 or 4 instances of the inversion wrap. I pull on the 5th line only to flip it back. I am in Maui and wrapped the 5th line right after launch yesterday in blustery easterly wind 22-30 mph. (curiously a day after i read this thread) A...

Re: Shinn Monk for freeriding and kitesuring on waves?

I use my 2011 Monk 130cm in 1-4 ft. waves and love it! Logged about 60 hrs on it. At Emerald Isle point we pop back and forth from flats to surf. The rocker is excellent for dropping in waves and IMO is more fun than a directional in small surf given the versatility. (ie, backrolls off of waves can ...
