I whole heartedly agree. I learned on a C, moved to a switchblade (version 1) when it came out, rode for a year and a half on it, then went back to an 07 Fuel and I don't think I'll be moving again any time soon. My opinion is that all the bow/sle pushers should try a modern C-kite, and THEN post th...

Try putting on a real tall hat someday and see if it affects your board size. Bout the only thing being tall might influence is the amount of wind resistance your body presents. Minimal at best. Weight is all unless your so tall your feet can't fit on the board. What ever happened to our resident e...

cant compare a slack 5th line to 4-line mode.... the wind puts pressure on the 5th line and also in gusts it the 5th line supports the profile of the LE if you want to know how it flys in 4-line mode you have to take the 5th line off! That's deep. Obviously your reasoning skills far outweigh my com...

Black with hot pink is one of the coolest colors in the new Fuels. I hope my 15 will be that color That may be okay for you but where No Idea and I kite you would cop a fare amount of sh#t for a kite of that colour. Trust me I have experienced it first hand. Questions such as "So does your boyfrein...

Yeh Sure big fella I heard that you wanted hot pink and that the red and green was your second pick. Camo Black with hot pink is one of...

I ride 5th line but it only engages when I drop the bar.
Otherwise it has considerable slack in it whilst riding and I never use it to trim.
Basically i'm riding 4 lines with the 5th line safety.

Rides great 4 lines.

Yeah there is a LOT of depower available to you without needing to pull the trim strap. I normally keep the trim strap pulled in about an inch or two just to make sure I'm not oversheeting the kite when unhooked. Then I simply adjust the stopper ball on the fly if i need more depower at any moment -...

Haha, yeah those are some pretty good photos but if i'm ever curious i can just pump up my own one (it's yellow flames with a nice sky blue canopy).

Curious to see what color my 15 will be in.... :thumb:

It's a bit of a lucky pick with these fuels..

I'm the proud owner of a 2007 11m Fuel and I'm still waiting for my 15m to come in. Hence I think Australians get them fairly early. It's only hindenburged twice on me, and that's because i swung under the kite during a big jump, didn't redirect it and crashed the landing so the lines went slack. Th...
