Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

.... How about other company names such as Cabrinha, Gaastra, Wipika, Takoon, and Naish. These are all kite companies with strange names that we have gotten used to. Haha strange names?! Most names are iconic people in watersports with major achievements. Or you think Cabrinha or Naish or Gaastra a...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

Here is another related question: Do all of you riders who use a board leash also wear a helmet? My thought is that one of the risks of using a board leash might be diminished somewhat by wearing a helmet. [Disclaimer: I have never used a board leash. I can't imagine that I ever will. I sometimes w...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

http://kiteboardleash.com/ Pretty sure I recall this website is registered to Ocean Rodeo despite finding nothing on a whois lookup. They wouldn't have any reason to discourage leashes would they? /s ;-) Oceanus has been making those reel leashes since at least the mid-2000s, they were hot garbage ...

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

Just to set the facts straight for both of you and all the rest wanting to bash Oceanus, sendit, are you speaking of the Reel Leash by Oceanus and have you set it up in the proper fashion according to their instructions? It seems odd that you sendit are saying that you got ‚tombstoned‘ which should ...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines fail

Sorry not making that stuff up. Read it somewhere and was told it too. Sorry for not having a source but I travel a lot as a consultant and had a few issues with luggage and my suitcases being shredded etc. Anytime you think as normal person they should replace and compensate as you would’ve done in...

Re: Who has Crazyfly kite? Are they durable ? How is the quality?

Also bought a CrazyFly Sculp last year (2017) as I wanted to try something new. Came from a f-one bandit, moved on to a north neo (hated the kite) and finally contemplated on getting back onto a f-one or just tying my luck with something new. Then by luck, saw a guy cruising and jumping around in Ca...

Re: Moving from F-one Bandit V to... Dice, Evo or Rebel?

Interesting.. I never heard about CrazyFly. Buying a kite nowadays is much like buying an android phone.. there are too many manufacturers and models, difficult to research them all. Anyway... their website redirected me to a US online shop and the price for the sculp 9m is 1990usd with the bar.. n...

Re: Moving from F-one Bandit V to... Dice, Evo or Rebel?

I went from f-one to North (for the same reason as to just try another brand) and there were so many North kiters and reps where I live that I sort of got convinced to get one. But I wasn't too happy about my choice at the end of the day. Afterwards I got myself a CrazyFly Sculp and was pleasantly s...
