Re: black kites

WTF.
no it's bullshit. Ask how the kite had been protected against UV light. That's it. Everything else is dumb.

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

Yeah pretty much every other company stopped using these. The pulley wheel can be super sharp and cut through a bridle. They aren't made for kiting. Kiting for 700 hours / 350 sessions / 3.5 years that's how long they are good for the pulleys and bridles until it becomes the time to think of replac...

Re: Upgrading to a new board

Wait not sure what you're asking. But for a TT...Naish .monarch You'll go through the same steps we all walked... wanting smaller and smaller boards. Then go slightly bigger. Just make the leap now get the monarch. Its reasonably aggressive, but very controllable and still soft enough to keep contro...

Re: Best bankrupt?

Gen 1 Waroo was a game changer for me. First time I ever really loved the sport. I had dicked around with foils for a bit. Easy to fly, but no direct feel, delayed response. Never quite knew where it was or what it was doing in the sky. Overflew them once or twice on a hard across-the-window tack a...

Re: Best bankrupt?

I'll cherish my memory of landing "Stevos's hellfish" and it exploding in my hands. Those were the days ! And Shogren emulating Ford... comes in every color as long as its silver. They had something right in principle, but instead of proper testing rushed it to market. Now look at Naish pushing the...

Re: Don't buy a Core kite before you read this!

What pulley is this kite using? I remember Cab. had some issues with some ronstan pulleys that cut the bridle a looong time ago. I think issues was that the bridle would get stuck between the wheel and the pulley body. I would see if there is a sharp edge on the pulley or if the wheel on the pulley ...

Re: Naish Pivot vs Fone Bandit

Hi Everyone I am currently flying a 2016 Bandit 9m. I weight 75kg and use the 9m mostly in Blouberg in winds ranging from 16 - 25 knots. I mostly like boosting and started learning to loop a few months back. I am considering buying either a 2018 Bandit or a 2018 Pivot, and I'm looking to buy a 10m....
