Re: New North Kitesurfing bar for 2017 (april fools I hope!)

Some comments (north user): *"Conversion from 4 to 5 lines": :thumb: (other brands use it already) *"PU center lines": :thumb: (other brands use it already) I would like this too to have. *"Configurable Y": :thumb: *Cost: it is pretty high (as many north products), but I see that also Cabrinha, Nais...

Re: Rebel, Evo or others, Kitesharing with my wife

I have rebels and I think of them as super safe. The fifth line, their friendly flight characteristics and their slow speed (not too good to me) makes rebel a safe choice.
Evo is also ok and more simple as it lacks one line. Overall, both are good choices.

Re: Control Bar - Accidental Eject

A week ago, I was trying to get my kite (north rebel) on the air, using my 2013 bar, which has been used in the past without any problem. The air was too gusty and when the kite was finally up (noon), a strong gust hit me. It got my whole body out of water for some seconds, but still no panic, I wai...

Re: North Rebel 2017

I think that North always (more or less) brings out the new kites at the same season and order. So if you buy a 2016 kite, knowing that 2017 is comming in a month, you should probably get a good discount (~20%). Usually there are just a few models/sizes left at the stores then.

Re: North de-power and 5th line - calling rope experts

Isn't there anyone that sells ready extensions that connect using the knots/loops of the kite? :-?
I would buy, let's say, a 5m ext. lines for my north 5line bar.

Re: The Safety Topic: please post your experience and advice

A week ago I was on the beach and it was like 18-25 knots. What I saw there: *someone asked me to launch his kite twice but the lines weren't ok, so he gave me the known signal to land the kite. ok. :thumb: *someone asked me to launch his kite, the kite wasn't in the correct position to launch but h...

Re: Tandemkitesurf - a new tool for instructions

I believe that one that has recently went on board, would benefit of this, as he would learn the correct body position and the initial kite movement in just minutes.

Perfect for couples too! :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin:

Re: So is the Second Hand / Resale Market that bad?

We must have in mind some things: *newbies cannot evaluate the condition of a used kite. So they could buy a very good shaped kite at great price or they could buy crap. So, buying a new kite guarantees the kite condition. :wink: *newbies do not know of brand names, quality, etc. They also prefer to...

Re: The Safety Topic: please post your experience and advice

Self rescue technique would help in such cases I believe. Just start wrapping the lines (some meters of the center line first) on your bar. After finishing, secure that the lines wont't go out of the bar, leave the bar and just grab the kite from LE and swim.
In any case, stay away from the lines.

Re: Ocean Rodeo Razor... This kite is not....gBoring.

I spotted the special on the 2013 7m Razor mentioned earlier and thought I should grab one. The price was great and worth the risk. It ended up being a bit too much hassle at the time to get one shipped over at reasonable freight costs and the sale fell through. . . . but finally, after searching f...
