Re: The Gran Caymans for the Holidays in December

Prevailing winds are generally from the easterly direction so you'll either be kiting at Barker's or out on East End. The only way you could get by without renting a car would be to stay in the 7 Mile Beach area, but that is leeward and offshore the majority of time. Barker's and East End are both a...

Re: Question to ClickBar users on the stopper

The black and grey parts of the stopper just fit snugly together. I'm assuming it wasn't designed to 'snap' in place so it's easier to manipulate while kiting (would be hard to unsnap the two pieces with one hand). You'll find that the stopper will work just fine out on the water - there is plenty o...

Re: Naish octopussy

the only plus of the octopussy system is the valves don't damage the canopy...oh wait, there is an extra deflate valve on the strut so there is absolutely no benefit. it is only an extra valve that can damage/break which makes it harder or more work to repair. no, i prefer the good old hoses with t...

Re: The Truth behind Naish Warranties

I bought three 2016 Naish Pivots a year ago...the 11m's high-flow valve was experiencing a slow, audible leak after two sessions (no matter how snug the valve was tightened down). There was a small knick on the valve surface, preventing a good seal. I don't believe this was anything I caused, but wh...

Re: 2016 Cabrinha Swirchblade Serial Number

Should be out at the wingtip, on the inside of the kite. If you are standing with the trailing edge in front of you, it'll be on the right.

Re: SP Boarding QSR straps/pads

I've traded off rides on a friend's board that had a set of these mounted. I agree with Poacher, very very comfortable, and they adjusted quickly to fit my feet. It's apparent that the company is focused on building a quality strap/pad, without the distraction of also designing boards and kites to g...

Re: Nobile Collection 2015 Is Here - Welcome to Saudade

I'm a big Nobile board fan and I have to second the "f* ugly" comment. NOBILE, if you need some help on the graphics PM me we'll get some great designs over to you at no charge! +3...I was excited to see what they had up their sleeves for 2015. Loved my previous 2HD. But quite a departure from bold...

Re: 2015 switchblade and kiteloops

Jespin - that is some insane boosting! I might be threadjacking a bit, but I noticed the majority of time you are looping the kite on the float back down. Is this what should be done on exceptionally high boosts, instead of fighting to keep the kite over your head by steering it back and forth?

Re: Cabrinha 2015

what a find...betcha they lock down those files soon...unless it is a planned leak They did away with the 'impossible to re-assemble in deep water' quick release, and the bar floats again. They are listening... Sweet! I never had an issue with the quick release since the kites depower so much - onl...

Re: Cabrinha 2015

I wonder if they will come out with a split board, and maybe another improvement in reassembling the IDS, refine the adjustable bar from the first year? More light wind kite improvements are always a target. Faster turning, more low end grunt, more durability, better lines, graphics for kites... Hi...
