Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Switch nitro 4 (in size 7 and 10m). Great kites for high wind days. Build quality is superb. Foil board never exceeded my expectations, it was so overhyped (here at kiteforum:D) before I tried it. Sure it was fun for a year to learn something new. Nowadays I choose foil when the wind is too light fo...

Re: North Valves: Continuing a sad story

Oh, north is another kite company using shitty "we did it better"-valves. Why almost all kite companies try to invent the wheel again and this is what happens. Why don't they just use a standard boston valve? It is so simple and works great. Or does anyone have problems with boston's? https://www.di...

Re: Review Eleveight RS 2019

Funny, I feel the kite has great hang time and floats you down slowly. Easy to do soft landings. Tried the FS as well and that one comes down faster. Sure you tried an RS?? Sure you can land smoothly with any kite, but I felt it is easier with my own boost or nitros (both are slower, bigger ar kite...

Re: thin booties, sharp objects, too keep out sand Help!

These are my summer boots: https://www.mares.com/shop/en-IC/diving/diving-wear/wetsuits-accessories/classic-ng-boots-11.html The bottom is so thick and hard, they are good to walk over sharp stones, or what ever are on the beach/underwater. Friends on the beach are shocked when they see those "you d...

Re: Review Eleveight RS 2019

Tried 2019 RS 9m. Superlight bar pressure - some people wouldn't like it but I do.
Jumps easily high but landing from jumps smoothly is harder compared to some high aspect kites (flysurfer boost, switch nitro).
I wouldn't buy it, but it's what kind of kites you like. Take a test drive :)

Re: Question from a Noobie

Anyone who is selling new kites, will tell you that you have to buy new 2019 gear, because the new gear is SO much better, they will jump higher, more stable, better upwind, faster, safer etc :D IMHO the kites itself haven't developed much in 10 years. During last 10 years, most of the kite brands a...

Re: Foil Kite advice Chrono, Hyperlink, Soul

If I'm not interested in maximum upwind angles (foil boards go enough upwind with any kite) or maximum speed, (I'm not participating competitions), is there any reason to choose chrono or sonic instead of soul? Is jumping performance much better with race kites like sonic, compared to soul or speed?...

Re: WOO 3.0 pre-order

What are requirements for the smartwatch to see the height? M400 is a basic sport watch with bluetooth which can receive some notifications, is it enough?

Re: Which helmet?

I'm looking for a full face helmet to hydrofoiling.
An ice hockey helmet with a steel cage would protect face well, but is it interfering visibility too much? A plastic visor wouldn't protect face area so well..

Re: Calling cold water kiters! - Glove me.

NRS mittens. Pre-curved, super warm and good touch to the bar.

I don't buy any gloves any more what are not precurved!
