Re: Who Has the Best Trim Strap?

For me the Wainman is pure joy. Depower works perfectly and the Velcro works unlike the North system

That's what I did ! Coming from a windsurfing background by brain is used to sheeting in hard with the back hand, big kite loop board came off mid rotation, landed the right way though.

Re: F one Bandit 7 Vs. 2014 North Rebel

I did a similar comparison before I bought some Wainman Rabbits. Ultimately I think it comes down to the simple question; which kite is the most fun to use? For me I decided not to buy the 2014 Rebels. I wanted a kite with a bit more guts low end but still had great top end and great all round abili...

Re: Down-The-Line Wave Riding Tips?

I seem to out run my kite when riding down the line on waves. This forces me to turn out of the pocket to get tension back in the lines. It doesn't help that my spot has light winds near shore. Any tips? Any other tips on wave riding appreciated! :D If you are out running the kite it sounds like yo...

Re: Waist harness that DOES NOT slide up, suggestions ?

I use a Jay harness with the Dynabar.

Very good, doesn't ride up, even after 2 hours solid use, and that is without the use the supplied leg straps.

Re: Wainman Boss, graphics stained

Disclaimer: Wainman is one of the brands that I am a dealer for. Now that that's out of the way... :wink: This looks like what happens when a kite is put away wet. I have seen numerous brands with the same appearance after rolling up the kite wet and leaving it that way for a few days. I've seen it...

Wainman Boss, graphics stained

Anyone notice the pink gold sections on the Boss staining when salt water spray hits the canopy? My kite is about 3 weeks old and the water marks look pretty bad, the picture below shoes the issue, the kite is completely dry. I've also gently wiped these area with a wet cloth to see if they come off...

Re: North Rebel 2014

when drifting, kite basically does not have power at all... If it has, it's not drifting, at least not in my books... It does, simple laws of physics, if you are travelling slower than the wind speed. This is very likely in 18 knots and above. You are riding a wave that is travelling forward that w...
