As far as the Chrono V2 goes I couldn't imagine a more stable kite, the only thing I would choose would be faster turning and maybe a bit more depower.
Which is the Hyperlink to me. Just my opinion.

Re: Surfboard Size Poll

165 lbs 5’8”
FireWire Tomo Vader 4’10” for everything
70% strapless, 30% loose straps,
for me, best board ever from mush to double overhead, kite drifting to fully powered smacks
5m-9m, occasionally when waves are really good 11m
Sorry, one of those short, square boards, 😆

Re: Gasping for breath after crash?! Breathing how to?

Well, yes and no. What you say is true but there is a bit more to it. If you are holding your breath while riding you are almost out of breath before you crash so to compare it to sitting around doing nothing you would have to hold your breath for a minute 3 lor 4 times and then try and hold your br...

Re: What to inspect when buying a used kite?

Also the trailing edge as it can get a lot of wear just sitting on the beach flapping in the wind even if the rest of the kite looks good.

Re: Can I use 2015-2017 Ozone Contact Water Control Bar with Naish kites

Both 4 line, equal length at full power, low v, single front line release? If true, then yes although you might need pigtails to correct kook-proof attachments. This is for most kites these day; yours specifically also yes. Line length is personal preference. Since you don’t say what kind of riding ...

Re: Ozone Enduro V2

Yes, changing the bridle makes a noticeable difference. The wave setting does not make it a Reo but gets close. The freestyle setting does not make it a C4 buts gets close. Very different feel. Changes the power through the turn, the turn shape, the bar pressure and the slack after pop. Having said ...

Re: Advise on true wind range of 12m Cabrinha Switchblade 2016

As a beginner you won’t notice any difference between the two wind ranges. Get the cheaper one and thrash it. You don’t say what the wind is where you will kite but if you are a quick learner and the wind is steady, get the 10 or 11 if those are options. If not the 12 will be a bit slower to react w...

Re: Replacing C-kites...?

Fun kites, one quick setting change on the front bridle and it will do everything you want.
