Re: Eleveight RS 14m 2018 review

Trailing edge weights - Really? Is this the alternative to 'Bow Kite' scalloped TE to avoid the patent I wonder. According to the Tkb review they're referred to as "battens". I couldn't find a good photo on the interwebs although you can almost make it out in the main photo of their review (those c...

Re: Eleveight RS 14m 2018 review

High bar pressure on 13.5m, 2010? It has lightest bar pressure i had felt. Maybe your 12m from 2017 was with high bar pressure? How mk9 obsession compares to RS? We must have different kites or a different setup. The bar pressure on my Obessions is second only to the 17m 1st gen Cloud that I have (...

Eleveight RS 14m 2018 review

I've had this kite for a while now and feel I can give a decent review. This review is not sponsored but for full disclosure I picked the kite up for 15% off during the Eleveight promotion for being one of the first 200(?) to buy one of their kites. For those interested here you go: I'm an intermedi...

Re: Suggestions for 2018 July EU destination?

Toby, thank you for taking the time to respond but.... Insufficient data. Was hoping to get some short personal feedback; something along the lines of: "I was in XXXX over the same time period last year. The beach was not very crowded, kite-friendly, and good for all but the N direction (there's a b...

Re: Drysuits circa 2018

For those who have a drysuit with integrated "socks" how do you try the suit? Inside out? Seems like there could be potential for funk if you can't blow air through it....

Re: Drysuits circa 2018

Thanks for the feedback. Regarding the wetsuit sizing, do they take into consideration additional layers that will need to be worn in the sizing charts or is it wise to "size up"? I suppose I should confirm with the manufacturer of whatever suit I decide to go with but it would be good to know for p...

Drysuits circa 2018

While I'm OK kiting in my 6/5/4 wetsuit into the teens (oC), I'd like to be able to stretch my season here in the great lakes just a little bit further. Doesn't seem like there are many up-to-date reviews around drysuits suitable for kiteboarding. I would like to get one if I can find something for ...

Re: 2018 Naish kites

Could someone tell me how much the 14m and 9m Pivots weigh? 2017 model is fine. I'm also curious if the Pivots generate any power while looping, for say, a dark-slide or jesus walk, or if per the reviews, they just pivot w/o generating much power. I've never flown one but am thinking if there's a lo...

Re: Kite suggestion req - bang for the buck air

I have not had the chance to fly the RS yet, so I will speak to my experience on the Roca V2 (2017, 10m) compared to my Pivot (2016, 6m). Both ..... Speaking to weight, I am afraid I have no clue. Looks like the RS has a variable number of battens per size, seemingly more on the larger kites. I bel...
