Re: RRD obsession 2015 compatible with global V7 bar?

their latest bar have a low V design, and the previous ones had a higher split point (around 4-5m), which makes the whole kite feel a bit more direct (low V) and a bit more slack on the back lines (better for freestyle) but you might want to shorten the front pigtails (or put an extra few cm on the...

Re: Best Roca vs TS - which one to choose?

Thanks for your feedback guys! I´m still not convinced whether I should go for the Roca or the TS. I´m not doing unhooked tricks, but on the other hand I often loop the kite (downloops and heli-loops), so perhaps will the TS be a better choice. I´m thinking that the best would be to try them both an...

Best Roca vs TS - which one to choose?

It's time to replace my RRD Obsession 9m and Airush Varial X 10m with a Best kite, I just can't decide if I should go for the TS 9m or Roca 9m. Personally I like hybrid kites and bowkites. I have a North Vegas 8m as well in my collection, but I feel a bit more comfortable with my hybrid and bowkites...

Re: How to pump through universal repair inflate valve

Well, small valves usually have a wide channel and a little plastic ball inside the valve, so pumping through them is still quite effortless imo. Or they have no ball at all so you just have to be quick when putting the plug back in place. But these universal valves have neither, but a small cut in ...

How to pump through universal repair inflate valve

I have mounted one of these inflate valves on one of my kites. It sticks and fits perfectly , so all good there. BUT, it´s so damn hard to pump up the kite throughthis valve! Is there some trick to pump through this valve or is it suppose to be harder than as if you were pumping the entire kite with...

Re: Front or back heli loops for soft landings after jump?

So the conclusion is that there is no specific loop that makes landings softer, but it's all about getting a feeling of which type of loop that will give you the softest landing in different scenarios.

Front or back heli loops for soft landings after jump?

My knees are worn out from years of kiting. Still I love to jump in strong wind... I know it's not good for my knees but the feeling of feeling alive can't stop me from jumping high. To make my knees last as long as possible I try to aim for as soft landings as possible. I pretty much always make a ...

Re: Best board for boosting jumps?

Does the pad position matter? I see that this guy with his modified board has taken things to its extreme, but on a normal TT do you place the pads in the middle of the board? Or do you put them one screw hole closer to the edge?
