Re: NRG, Fat Lady, and Zephyr

I had a 2013 NRG 16m and would fly that in around 10 knots with a skim (around 200lbs). The file is slower than most and difficult to relaunch. I swapped it this year for a 2013 Ozone Zephyr and the kite flys in less fly but has a touch less power. It flys faster and has the same wind range (10 - 25...

Re: Name The Best US Mainland Kite Locations

Try Copper Harbor, MI. Pretty much unknown to the kiting world. Endless empty beaches and terrain (waves/ flat water), constant wind year and its fresh water (pretty cold though). Average snowfall is around 300 inches of fluffy lake effect snow for snowkiting.

Re: Liquid Force Trimming system and question

Depowering is not that difficult on the below the bar systems, you just have to get the tension off the center lines. For my LF bars, it helps to move the stopper down (away from the pulley), ride downwind or squat (if on land) and on the way up just pull down and away, just pulling down runs it thr...

Re: Naish Park 2013 vs Liquid Force Envy 2013

Tried the 2012 back to back with the 2013. The 2013 turns a lot quicker but it didn't fell like it had better low end... maybe worse than the 12, but only a little bit. The relaunch was the same... pretty effortless.

Re: new LF Envy bar grip separating

Never had that happen before on any of my LF bars. The middle does start to peel, but that because I have my thumbs there and its constantly rubbing, it really gets bad when I have gloves on. Just use some Loctite and that should be fine. I would reach out to LF though.
