Re: A friendly warning: don't kite in Singapore

I totally understand and agree. Are there signs at the beach making people aware of it? And where to buy a permit if one wants to Kite there?? I was the one that post in the FB group (kiteboarding Singapore!) that Mr. Chew ( btw he is not from Singapore and I am sure have not kited here before ) go...

Re: Honest review of BRM Cloud kites

hi all anyone had durability issues, stretch in canopy? Yes, I do. But having said that, I got the 17m, C1 for light wind..learning how to foil now and thus it is a good 4-5 years of use. It is so visible that I can see the panels lines curving out while the kite is in the sky. compensate by adjust...

Bar for people with really short arms

Does anyone of the brands makes bar that is located really close to the body and with short bar throw (300mm)?

Or what to do (next to pulling the centerline and riding always powered) to accommodate this physical difference?

Re: Impact on performance - position of the front lines bridle along the leading edge

If you move the leading edge attachment points further apart from the centerline, it will flatten out the arc of the kite improving power production but slowing down turning speed. The really high AR inflatables are like this...Cabrinha just released a brand new inflatable called the Apollo that ha...

Impact on performance - position of the front lines bridle along the leading edge

To satisfy my curiosity... I noticed that different kite model has front lines that are position at different locations along the leading edge. Appreciate some one who can enlighten me on the changes to performance of the kite if we are to move it around. For example 1. closer to the center of the k...

Re: Kite Lines: which ones are used by the pro?

Good info... but I got lost in the discussion.

What would be the best lines out there now that will have minimal creep / stretch?

I got my Cabrinhas, Switch, Liquid Force lines all stretch by more than a ft. I am 100kg and do simple jumps.

Re: North Rebel 2016 Versus Switch Nitro5

these 2 kites are so new I doubt someone had the chance to try both. cant really compare those 2 models , but comparing the rebel 2010/2011 and nitro4: build quality on both is excellent. (disregarding delaminating valves on rebels of those years) hang time excellent on both, boost from water more ...

Re: North Rebel 2016 Versus Switch Nitro5

I was under the impression the equivalent kite in the North range is the Evo. I think if you are trying to compare like for like, this might be a better comparison. Thank you for the suggestion, however the Rebel is closer to the Nitro as both focus on boosting high. The Evo is more of an all round...

Re: Switch Kiteboarding Launches New Innovative Spider Bridl

Your surmise or memory that I fly clouds is right. If you haven't actually flown the clouds and checked out at least the shaping and layout and how it is not really as simple as it looks, you ought to. Firsthand experience, and I would say at least 10 hours of it, is what it takes to get the advant...
