Re: Please measure your line lengths!

Ozone line lengths are correctly described, it is Slingshot who are incorrectly describing their line lengths. I think "correct" is relative here. I would prefer to know the length of lines from end of leader lines to pigtails. For example, perhaps I will choose to put slingshot lines on an ozone b...

Re: Ozone kites 12m low end experience

Can anyone comment on Reo V5 (or V4 as it's pretty close) lowend between 9m and 10m sizes? The chart on the Ozone website shows huge difference o lowend between 9m and 10m. I've got 9m and I find it lacks power in light winds with hydrofoil. Especially noticeable during tacks. Wondering should I ch...

Re: Please measure your line lengths!

Wish I'd known that before getting Ozone 23m lines because Ozone 25m lines are nearer in length to Slingshot 23m lines which is what my brian (sic) is dialled into with my Enduros. Live and learn. Dude Ozone should absolutely switch the lines for you if you paid full price for the lines. Send them ...

2015 Slingshot Rally Bridle Outside Lines

I have recently attempted to use my 2015 Slingshot Rally 10m kite for the first time. After opening the kite, I noticed that Slingshot shipped the kite without the outside adaption lines. This is the short blue line attached to the kite that you connect the outside lines to. Does anyone have a Sling...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

I had 6,8 10 and 12 2016 sst kites. I sold them because of to much power when looping but the drifting is amazing. also 1-very well built 2-easy relaunch 3-medium bar pressure I like them a lot but for surfing, you need to loop the kite and not being pull of the board. I ride NEOs and I am not goin...

Re: Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

I've just thought of something. We should also consider line lengths. Ozone flies on 25m lines standard while slingshot is on 20m lines. This is going to make a big difference in the looping of the kite!

Has anyone flown both kites with the same line lengths?

Slingshot SST vs Ozone Reo

I am looking to buy an 8m slingshot SST. I am wondering how this kite's loop compares to the ozone reo's loop. I've flown an 8m reo before and I love the way the reo loops quick and easy and with a consistent pull through the small loop radius. I recently used an 8m best cabo (2015) and the loop was...

Foot straps and foot injuries

I recently had a couple sessions in really high wind. After which the top of my foot hurt slightly and hurt greatly when I kiteboarded with a twin tip again. I had just put on new foot straps and I am thinking the repetitive impact on the top of my foot caused some bone bruising to occur (although t...

Re: How to make a high Y bar ?

That being said - why bother at all? Kites designed to fly on Y-bars work perfectly fine with V-bars, it's the other way around that you might actually notice any difference in kite's behaviour and yet alone - to have any real issues. Can you please expain further? I dont understand why v-bar desig...
