Re: naish park 10m vs liquid force envy 10.5 low end

I have not ridden the park, but have many friends who do. When I'm on a 9m Nirvana, they are on a 9m Park. I have also ridden the 2013 Envys. The 8m Envy has more power than the 9m Nirvana. And the 10.5 Envy has much more power than the 11 Nirvana. So, I would guess that the 10.5 Envy is probably eq...

Re: Suggestions for pads/straps with maximum foot retention

i used to have the same problem. then i switched to boots. problem solved. the new boots (particularly the open toed ones) weigh the same as straps. not much of a downside unless you're into boardoffs. as for the board delaminating? that's just an excuse for bad manufacturing. put boots on it, and t...

Re: LF NRG (not the LW)

Yeah, it has tons of power. It's not a fast kite, but it's really really powerful. big lofty gliding jumps...

Re: Standardising Strap Insert Spacing

it is standard. it's 6 inches with M6 screws.

Re: Buying surfboard in Cumbuco

Toby is right, finding a buyer the last day is the hardest....they know you're desperate :-) that said, i would do ...

Re: Hifi Comp wind range

i'm right about your weight, and the 11m is my biggest kite. any lighter wind than that and i'm on my skimboard.

bar size for the 11m is same as for the 9m....the smallest bar (whatever size that is)
