Re: Foils that hum!

When i say "outgrow" its in the sense i want faster and better performance etc. The LF board is super heavy!

As a starter and a cruiser the LF setup is pretty good.

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

I don't care how good the Switch kites are I wont support them as their business model cuts out the local store who is there to help you out with repairs, backup and service when you need it.

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

all their gear has been pretty average, i wont buy them for that reason but the main reason is they cut out the shops who are doing the right thing by servicing, teaching and keeping the kiters safe by being there for customers.

Re: NRG, Fat Lady, and Zephyr

Its hard to give a kite a bad rap by saying you ride up to a kiter on "kite A" who is self rescuing on "kite B" light wind kiting is an art that not all kiters can accomplish with ease! I have not ridden the Turbine but it looks like a good LW option. I have spent a bit of time on all these kites an...

Re: Front line swivel mod w/ single front line safety,Workin

Re: 2013 Blade Fat Lady

17m is a big kite to ride on a surfboard but if any kite is suited its definitely the FL, while its fast on the longest setting on the uni bar if you went up to a 55cm bar its very fast. Drift wise yes it works well you can ride straight at it in 10 knots as long as you don't go too fast on a wave, ...
