Re: Skis for all-round riding

There are a lot of options. Really nobody makes a bad ski these days and skis that used to be "wide body" (100mm+ under foot) are now pretty average and extremely versatile. Here's a link to which explains some of the details to look for in a ski for kiting. http://www.hardwaterkiter.com/skis-boards...

New England Snow kiting equivalent to foil boarding.

When you get hit with a warm spell and 2" of rain, you make the best of it. :D If you like riding hard water, the conditions are great. Looking forward to getting more snow again but this is pretty fun too. http://www.hardwaterkiter.com/uploads/5/9/9/5/5995762/snapshot-138b2_orig.jpg http://www.hard...

Re: Sonic2 vs. R1V2 vs. Speed5...

2nd Socomms opinion on "bad things" that foils do. Ask the people who complain most about bowties and tip curl, how much foil kite experience they had before they bought one of these "problematic" foils. Of the options you've presented, the Speed is going to be the most user friendly, durable and ha...

Tough call. UL will still make it faster turning and more compact. And less weight is always good IMO.
For sure UL would gain a bit, but I'm not sure that it's worth to sacrifice durability.
Nor am I. ;-)

Re: Another New Kite from Ozone.

Side note. The AR on the Blizzard is 4 I'm told. Slightly lower than the Frenzy V10. Should be a snappy turner and good gust muncher. :-)

Re: Another New Kite from Ozone.

Being a complete layman on foil kites, Ozone clearly states: "The Blizzard V1 is a completely new design dedicated purely for Snowkiting " If so, does it have any features that avoid water pouring into the cells (when kite is in the drink) like foils for kitesurfing have? Nope! Strickly a land/snow...

Re: Another New Kite from Ozone.

Hardwater , thanks to share this new kite . So no more Frenzy but what about the summit ? still available ? or the Blizzard replaces both ? Blizzard replaced both. I was a bit surprised to see the Summit discontinued a while back given the V4 came out last season. There are a few leftovers availabl...
