Re: Slingshot Octane

I have a joyous quiver of Revs and one 11m Octane. The Octane is similar but somehow just not as good as the Revs. I'm afraid I can't quite out my finger on it. Dig out another Rev if you can and if you can find any still in decent condition.

Re: Help a mate launch or land, with your kite in the air

Way simpler and safer to launch your friend first and then self launch..... :thumb: That is fine on a wide sandy beach during a launch. But what if you are out kiting, the wind comes up strong and gusty, and some other guy gets tired and needs to put his kite down? He's on the beach, struggling to ...

Re: witnessed real bad crash today

Well there are more issues here. Saturday was up and down squally rubbish and why I didn't go out. No good for a) having any fun at all and b) for the inexperienced.

He should not have been out in it.

Sunday was the day.

Re: Seriously Strong Wind On The Way?

Here's a question, how many have held up a twin tip kiteboard about 0.5 m in area in such conditions, or even less? What are the highest winds you have held a kiteboard perpendicular to the flow and what did it feel like? A 5 m kite could potentially have at least ten times the force, with moment a...

Re: Moving to NZ from Hood River

Raglan rocks fella. Super chilled out. If you're on the surf board it is the perfect spot with the Magic Carpet whisking you out to the Raglan Bar in seconds. Few people and pretty predictable wind seasons. I love it. Beer is on the up - thank god. The years of drinking piss are on the way out. Plen...

Re: Strapless surfboard - Leash or no leash

yup - there certainly are risks with a leash but for me it's definitely a case of ride without if you can. Our East Coast beaches are fine without but go West and it is GNARLY - dirty waves, vicious currents. I have to wear a leash or the board is gone. I'd rather not but the risks aren't greater th...

Re: Whats the stupidest kiting thing yourve done?

because unless you're insanely lucky - they won't get into it. They might pretend for a while. But they won't. + you'll be nervous as hell when they're on the water and you can't enjoy yourself. Soon interest will wane as chicks rarely have the drive men do. Which means they won't get the 'totally h...

Re: Cost Breakdown of Kite Package - Online Only vs Shop

Also... here is a video of last year's 6m Envy in action in case people want to say that the Envy is "just a beginner kite"... It is a hugely versitile kite.... like most kites out on the market these days. Not to get sidetracked but THAT's your video for showing it's not a beginner kite? Granted t...
