Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

I got a ride engine pro harness and sold it after 5 sessions. Killed my back. Others on beach had similar experience. Herd the C1 is nice. Took a chance on the Ion pro wave harness and am loving it. Has a carbon shell in back but is smaller than RE. Also has a constant curve to it. The inside is mem...

Re: The Gran Caymans for the Holidays in December

Gonna have to rent a car unless you stay at Compass point dive resort https://compasspointdiveresort.com/ . Than your stuck at a resort eating their expensive food and drinks. Not even sure if they offer kite services anymore. I wouldn't go to GC without renting a car. It's not a big deal. I think K...

Re: Switch Element5 vs Cabrinha Drifter

E5 is great in onshore winds and more low end to get out of tricky situations.

Re: Onshore wave riding

Get a Switch Element V4! Its not just Felix's technique in the above video. The kite makes onshore wave riding super fun. Guys on the beach are always complaining when its onshore wind and i'm like"dident even notice." Switch has made a wave destroyer in the V4 Element in any conditions!

Re: NC shark attacks??

My friend told me there is something like 700 shark attacks a year in Florida. We have had 7 this year in NC. It's just hype.

Element V4 9M Review

Just got my new 9M one week after I ordered it and amazingly enough the wind blew. This has never happened to me in 10 years of kiteing.I usually have to wait a week or so which makes me crazy. I unpacked it on the beach :D . First thing I noticed was the bomb proof construction. Next was the 3 knot...

Re: NC shark attacks??

I know! I always feel like a big lure dragging through the water when I'm dragging back to my board. I use the "get my ass back there as fast as you can method!" It's even more worrysome if I just released some shark sugar out my pee hole. A local kiter got bit last year here in Wilmington NC off Ma...

Re: Nitro 4 vs Cabrinha Switchblade

Re: Wave riding styles? Kite powered vs wave powered

When I ride waves with my kite my style is dictated by the conditions. If the waves are smaller,faster and with no push than I use the power of the kite more working it to get up and down the face and line. When conditions are big than I used the kite to tow into the wave and once on the wave depowe...
