Re: Wakestlye board for soft landings that isn't terible in chop and lightwind

Really appreciate everyone's feedback. Has been an interesting discussion so far. I'm going to be riding straps, so needs to be OK without bindings. Thanks to Frank for those 4 suggestions for mid rocker and mid flex boards. I really wish the brands would use standardised metrics on rocker and flex ...

Thanks Frank - really useful.

I would be in straps, though having the option for bindings would be a bonus.

Wakestlye board for soft landings that isn't terible in chop and lightwind

After 7 years on a Nobile T5 (137x42) I think it's finally time I upgraded my board. It has served me well, but I'm now landing railey to blinds and want something that is softer and more stable in the landings. Pop has never been a problem on the T5, so not too concerned about that. From my researc...

Re: North Evo 2012 vs Dice 2015 - Low end and unhooked slack

Thanks Westozzy, When I was reading up on the Dice I saw a lot of your great postings comparing various North kites, so appreciate the opinion. You are certainly right about it being a grunty delta - I did an image search a couple of days ago to compare the 2012 Evo to the current model - it use to ...

North Evo 2012 vs Dice 2015 - Low end and unhooked slack?

So I'm headed to Dahkla for a couple of weeks on the 25 Sep and thinking of getting a new kite. Currently have a 12m 2012 Evo that I am thinking of upgrading. Also have a 10m 2012 Vegas which I'm happy with. In general still pretty happy with the Evo - love the low end, decent for hooked jumping, wa...

Re: North range - unhooked comparison

Wow Dan, thanks so much for the reply - more detail than I ever could have expected - you are certainly flying the North flag in a positive way :thumb: What was particularly useful was the your thoughts on power of the kites vs each other. Based primarily on this I think I am going to go for a 12 Ev...

North range - unhooked comparison

Hi all, Was hoping for a bit of help with picking out a replacement for my 2009 12m North Rebel. I loved the kite, incredibly stable and a massive wind range. I seem to be going more and more down the route of unhooked stuff, though still love waves and boosting. I unhook with it at the moment, but ...

Re: Current state of Greece / Greek Islands??

:lol: Oh crap - I did not mean for my question to start a flame war about Greece!!! :argue: Don't worry, I booked my flights to Kos last night, and I don't actually think I can buy the Cyclades for $100 - although that would be nice :D However, what with this new information from oceansprince, I wil...

Re: Current state of Greece / Greek Islands??

Thanks for all the replies guys - you have all dispelled my fears!! Will definitely head to Kos as a starting point! So now on to Kos itself - has anyone been to all of the spots on the island? As far as I can tell there are 4 or 5 centres spread around the north and east coasts of the island - was ...
