Re: Flysurfer Cronix 10 in small waves. A short video.

Hi. Plummett, in small waves and gusty wind I love riding "strap in" and doing old style tricks. For this reason I still own three mutant/hybrid boards: the Naish Mutant 4,10 (still my favourite...). the RRD Toxic wave and the Advance Omega. Also the Naish Global 5,5 2011 (four fins setup) and the ...

Re: Flysurfer cronix

Was the lack of lift compared to the best TS due to the rider level? It seems the rider was really taking that kite way past 12 before they left the water. Or does it have a real c type lift profile meaning one has to whip it all the way across the window? That was my impression as well. Seemed lik...

Re: Kiteboarder´s life...... being a parent?

I have 3 kids. 4,6 and 8. Life as you know it will change. That is for sure. prepair yourself for not much kiting the first 6 months. However I think you need to make time to get out and have a session weekly. It might only be a very short session. rig up get wet throw a few jumps and go home. So s...

Re: Epic screamer or north rebel

Stealing the topic, but.... How the Rebel compares with the Renegade? I have a 13m rebel and I'm about to buy a 10 or 11m. I got a friend selling his used 10m rebel, almost new barely used for a good price. But for a little more I can get a 11m Renegade brand new. The 10m is the pick of the Rebels....

Re: Epic screamer or north rebel

Still don't understand why a modern kite needs a loaded fifth line, with the better bladders and LE's that can be pumped hard now? The Fuse is the same kite as the Rebel, no? Magazine reviewers seem to believe they are. And how could the crazy puke-alicious color combination choices that North has ...

Re: Do I want a North Nugget?

The North Nugget is the best free riding directional kitesurfboard ever..... Unless you have ridden one you have no idea how good it is ... All other surfboards ride like surfboards, the Nugget rides like a dream behind the kite, in chop, in lake swell, in small and even overhead waves... It doesnt...

Re: Cabrinha Nugget, have you used it in waves?

Are you sure you don't mean the North Nugget? The cabrinha nugget is a wake skate.

Re: Looking for light wind board

Finally managed to get my north nugget out in light wind conditions. You can see how light it is in the video. My 10m falls back out of the sky from 12 and I had to steer it into a dive just to recover it. I have videos about 5 minutes later of it being too light to relaunch standing in 20cm of wate...

Re: Freerace vs Transport vs Sector

I ended up with a North Nugget instead of a freerace after following this thread for a while. Unless you're really planning to do racing, the Nugget seemed to have more of the fun factor and at this point, I don't have the time or effort to chase racing as an option.
