Re: Do all kites invert equally?

I think that the "bad reputation" for slingshot is not related to real kite inversion, but to the line inversion, or something mysterious is happening. Have used and observed a lot of slingshots since 2004 and the only time one inverted was due to wave washing and tumbling.

Re: What does true mean for you?

Oh yes it is: the north bars, more specifically the lines, have always been mediocre quality. Also Ion (which is nothing more then the accessories line of NKB) has lots of mediocre products.

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

The difference between Reo And SST has always been the same: Reo flies smoother in the turns, but with hardly any power, while SST can give you power in the turns if you need it. For me, the Reo is just not enough power when I need it, but I'm a heavy guy (94 kg). So if you are used to a bit more po...

Re: What fin set up are people using on directional?

When searching you should be able to find enough fin discussions (here and somewhere else). About one setup turning faster then the other: this needs a bit more specification. In general a thruster will turn easier on a smaller surface (a small arch), but a quad will turn with a higher arch speed (b...

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

I love the AM3's, there small and versatile. But forces you to use the rail a bit more. About the inside foil: my opinion is based on experience, but I'm allways open to new insides. I tried the Vanguard with a foil and did not like it (as I did not like foils in the past with other boards). But it ...

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

FCS "single" plugs can provide more tail flex, but only when not attached to the deck. A small problem with FCS could be that the screws have a slight tendency to losen due to fibration in the fin. With the current block with two plugs: comparable flex pattern to Futures, depending on attaching the ...

Re: Firewire Vader, Fins recommendations

Every damn fin thread needs this link posted because 1/2 the people here who comment on fins don't know what they're talking about. https://futuresfins.com/en-us/fin-school/foil +1 NCM is correct. I've now counted several posts indicating this fact. Why can't anyone here understand this? So far the...

Re: Strapless surfboard for 205 to 225 rider

Riding strapless for 8 years now, owned lots of customs, some kite brands, tested a lot. Owned a Vanguard 5.2 & 5.4, own a Vader 5.5. Weight: around 203. Not every Tomo like board is equal... I did not test all look alikes, but tried some and the result where... different. I am a Tomo addict. If you...
