Re: How to ruined your vacation with Core

Ive never flown a Fone kite but I didn't name the brand because its not worth bashing them. I've also blown out cells of open and closed cell foil kites and repaired what I could. I have posted where I thought constructive criticism could result in a better design. Some brands are proud of their bee...

Re: How to ruined your vacation with Core

I've split a kite down the middle. It was a reputable non-Core brand. I had a fairly long swim arriving at shore after dark. Pro tip: wash the salt and sand off kite with fresh water and let it dry before you tape it. Even better if you can clean the area with some isopropyl alcohol. Conflict of int...

Re: How to ruined your vacation with Core

Knot Core's Fault. Easy to make a kite more robust, but always trading weight. Lighter kites fly better. Kites, boards and people can all break. Whats new? Just tape it and ride it. Kite-Fix mesh and glue works well too. No need to cancel vacation. No need to slam the brand Core. Conflict of interes...

Re: Ozone Uno for young, light weight rider?

I have the 4 and 6 Uno V2. I use them to fly witk my 3 kids - 10 14 and 16 ranging 60-115 lbs. Great kites to fly with kids both for land training and on water. My 14 year old is becoming independent enough in the water that soon the 10 yo will get to learn in the water. They also make reasonable in...

Re: HQ kites are a bad joke

I definitely would consult the ancient wisdom contained in early posts by PumpMeUp before attempting to fly an HQ hydra.

Re: Open cell ram airs on water- anyone tried lately?

Open cell foil kites and a repurposed wind surf/SUP board would not be the first choice for somebody learning kiteboarding. If you are compelled to try, keep your paddle with you or arrange a down wind pickup. OP is talking about the simplicity of rolling up an unrelaunchable open cell kite if neede...

Re: Ozone Hyperlink vs. Airush Ultra

Regarding 14.5 Flite or a larger Ultra compared to 12 hyperlink: Yes to turn faster. No to have better low end power. The one caveat is if you are driving slow upwind in waves that push you downwind and kill kite power in medium light winds e.g. on a surf board strapless then maybe same power. If yo...
