Best Drysuit

Things seem to have changed since the topic was previously discussed. The Ocean Rodeo Predator seems to be the best drysuit out there for kitesurfing - merely because of the snug fitting and flexibility. Any other suggestions based on fitting/flexibility, ability to keep you dry and strength in tear...

Re: F-One Bandit III review

I ride the Bandit III for freestyle and waves and have the 7,9,11 quiver. I am 180lbs and this covers me from about 14mph to over 30mph. The 15 is probably too big for you, especially in waves. For your size, I would probably go 8, 10, 13. I know another guy who is probably over 240lbs and he rides...

Re: F-One Bandit III review

By the way, any input to choice of sizes for a three kite quiver for both wave and freestyle. I'm 95 kilos (210 lbs).

I'm thinking 8 / 11 / 15, but I'm unsure whether I'll need a smaller kite for waves and wether I'll ever need a 15 m2 due to the bandit's perfomance on the low end?

Re: F-One Bandit III review

Oqion - what is up with the need for an adjustable stopper ball??? The F-one bar does have an adjustable stopper ball!

I don't know if other changes have been made - maybe they fixed other issues as well?

Re: Board: What is Gun?

FredBGG - I understand that you're Aviso-carbon fiber-strapless happy - I totally understand that from just looking at it (and because carbon fiber seems to be taking over the world of exclusive sports gear). However 1400 USD + 25 % Danish VAT and delivery is a bit more than expected to begin with :...

Board: What is Gun?

Several brands have a "gun", which seems to be a somewhat bigger board than other board surfboard-categories. Especially F-one have a large 6'9'' gun. What is the purpose of a long "gun" (don't get me wrong :lol: ) compared to more standard kite-waveboards? I'm about to go from twintip freestylre to...

Re: best waist harness money can buy

It seems that Mystic, Pat Love TFMK (TFM for Kite) and Dakine Pyro is often mentioned. Funny enough they are also some of the most expensive harnesses. Would you be surprised, if the best harnesses are also the most expensive ones? :cool2:
