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...

Re: Kite suggestion req - bang for the buck air

If you can find a Roca in the size you want it will probably serve your needs very well. I find the Roca a little more direct/aggressive than the Pivot but lighter than the TS. Otherwise, the Eleveight RS is its spiritual successor. The Naish Park is also good and should be pretty cheap if you can ...

Re: Eleveight kites

I'm in the market for a 14m kite... has anyone demoed the RS in that size and if so, how was it? I'm torn between the RS and the Naish Pivot 14m but haven't flown either... just going by the specs and some reviews. Also wonder which would be the lighter kite of the two. Thanks.

Re: Naish Pivot 14m vs Cabrinha Contra 13m

Does anyone know how much the Naish Pivot 14m weighs (with bridles of course)? Am looking at getting one sight unseen but am concerned that with the "heavy duty" fabric used it might be heavier than I expect.

Re: Kite suggestion req - bang for the buck air

No not really sure in the US, but the distributor have a Facebook page, maybe send them a message and ask for a dealer near you? Maybe even a demo? :) https://www.facebook.com/eleveightusa/?fref=ts Yeah, I shot them a couple of emails. I ended up ordering a 12m RRD Obsession; the price was very goo...

Re: Kite suggestion req - bang for the buck air

Eleveight RS sure impressed me with hangtime and playfulness. Still need to test the big sizes though, but felt fun in the small! Do you know who sells these US? I don't see any pricing or weight info, otherwise it looks like it fits my requirements nicely. Update: found some pricing info from one ...
