Re: Finally I had my first date with the Ultra 12 @ 6-10 knots

When looping these one or zero strutted kites, they flap a lot; to me that's a bad sign, it's the same as what happens when you leave your kite on the beach flapping, right? If you don't loop your kite a lot with power, I guess it won't become a problem?

Re: Saved by the wrist strap

seriously, dump the idea, that's darwin awards stuff there for sure. Go to gym and buy kites with less bar pressure - problem solved. When shit happens, it usually happens fast, otherwise it wouldn't become a situation in the first place.

Re: FS Speed 6

Re: DIY onestrut kite

What about removable battens? Gong kites have such instead of the center strut, which could be nice and light? Also these could be attached near the trailing edge where the other two struts are in 3 strut kite to prevent flapping when looping the kite etc? In very light winds for foiling you can opt...

Re: Slingshot 2017 SST vs 2018 SST?

Back to op’s question; can anyone confirm if there are any differences between 17 and 18 models? I am interested in the 12m.

What are best wetsuits for winter windy extreme conditions?

What wetsuits do you recommmend for extreme cold weather? I am talking abt zero temps here. I have a good deal (-50%) on 2015 Xcel Infinity X2 6/5mm but before committing, should I pay double for 2017 some other highend wetsuit? I wonder if flashbomb style furry fluffy innerside is the way to go and...

F.One Slice 5'3 - anyone tested it yet?

I am interested in the carbon version of the new Slice, 5'3 preferably. Has anyone got the chance to test it yet? Especially if the 5'3 version has a high board speed and is it overly stiff now due to construction (pure strapless version without the inserts)? Also, when do you expect them to be avai...

North Neo 2017 12m - is it slow turning elephant or quick turning light strapless freestyle low wind kite?

I have 8 and 10 Neo 2017, which I really like for strapless freestyle. My Neo 10m gets me freestyling from around 18 knots (grabless jumps/rotations doable), but how is the 12m? Would I benefit from 12m Neo say at 15 knots, does it have fast board speed and how about the turning? Is it either like a...

Core Section 2 12m - anyone tested it yet? Has the lowend improved from Section 1?

I'm especially interested in the 12m version, but has anyone tested it yet? And most importantly, how's the lowend and what about the jumping potential for strapless freestyle in low winds?

Thanks!
