Re: airush wave 2014 or north neo 2014

magnusod : I'd definitely get the 7/9 combo over the 6/9. The 7 is a magic kite and although there is some overlap, its worth it. You will get much more use out of the 7 than the 6. Also, fyi, I use the analog bar with the stock long lines. I never liked long lines before but now love them. I think ...

Re: airush wave 2014 or north neo 2014

I've never flown the neo but have a wave 9 and 7. It sounds like the neo is way more powerful, but I can tell you I find the waves to be powerful for their size as well and am often on my 9 when others are on 10 and 11. The waves are really fast, generate good power when you want but can also pivot ...

Re: Any light wind videos in Waves?

Peter, thanks for the detailed reply. I'm an average size guy and looking to kite waves in light wind. I live in an area where we get side shore to side-on wind. There are a few spots where its side-off, but thats not that common. To clarify my post, I'm not looking for technique on wave riding but ...

Any light wind videos in Waves?

I'm considering buying one of the new generation LW kites but all the videos that I've seen of them are with twin tips. I ride regular unstrapped surfboards, have been kiting 10 years and currently have a 10m as my largest kite. Do any of the new generation kites work well with side-on or side shore...

Re: North: The Champions of One Eye

Some great riding from both the men and women. It seems like North is doing a good thing by sponsoring the event..all of their riders are winning. I wonder why other brands don't sponsor the event?

Re: 2013 Slingshot Rally review

I also agree, the 2012 6m pulls as hard as most 7m kites and has great top end. I can go from powered on my 9 to my 6 no problem. That 2012 6m kite is as close to a perfect wave kite that I have found in 10 years.

Re: waxing kite lines

I have found that Bow Wax works well. Its made for hunting bows and you get it at sporting goods stores. Work it in with a leather glove, takes 5 minutes and lasts about 5-6 sessions. I got mine at Big 5 for like 5 bucks.

Re: Slingshot 2013 ?

I have a 2012 6/9/12 Rally quiver and love all of them. I have had each one in the low and high ends of their respective wind ranges and have not had any stability issues. They are amazing kites. Unlike the Captain, I find the 6 to be a perfect kite. I only kite waves/surfboards and I think he might...

Re: Bandit 5, Naish Park, Switch Element. Comparisons?

I have flown Bandit 5 kites in sizes 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. I have flown the Element 9 once and a Park 9 a couple of times. Although I felt the Bandits had more power and range than either the Element or Park, I had limited time on those other kites and wind wasn't great so can't say definitively. I ca...

Re: Renegade "Infinity V2" light wind machine.

Hey Dimitri, How is the Infinity for light wind down the line wave riding? Or is it better for mowing the lawn? I'd love to have a kite that allows more days in the waves but on those light days with my current setup I feel like I should be hanging out with my family. Or working..instead of sitting ...
