Leucate or Vlieland in July/August?

Hi Folks! I’ll have the possibility to go on vacation in July or August. I would like to kite somewhere in Europe. I went through ‘Windy holiday destinations by month’ and found for e.g. Leucate as one of the possibilities in July. But when acquiring information about the local circumstances I read ...

Re: Surf Expo 2015 Videos from The Kiteboarder

I'm wondering why Core does not participate on these Surf Expos? I've never read any bad opinion about the brand(except their marketing) which tells me that their products are put together pretty good. Unfortunately I've not had the chance to test neither Core kites nor the boards so far. Quite a bi...

Re: Redoing spots database - what do you want?

Re: Free App for world's largest location database

Hi Toby, So far I was able to use splocs on my PC only (being an android user). The website is useful, actually very very useful information sometimes!!!! I added a few pictures and info about the places I visited. Info I would find important to know before getting to the specific spots. Something i...

Re: Nova Vaga, Troia or Ilha de Tavira / Torre D\'Aires

Missed to mention that “Very large beach (30km) with soft sand, no rocks, shells etc. More than enough space to safely relaunch and land a kite. No objects close by, just sand dunes. Not crowded.” is stated about Troia.

Nova Vaga, Troia or Ilha de Tavira / Torre D\'Aires

Hi, It’s time to plan the trips  :D This year we chose Portugal. I went through the related posts and restricted the destination to three spots : Nova Vaga, Troia and Ilha de Tavira / Torre D\'Aires. We are looking for big sandy beach (=no hazards), no big waves ( or no waves at all). It would be i...

Re: Any facts about 2014 Ozone Catalyst 14m or Bandit6?

The shop ran out of 12m Bandit6 so, I bought a 12m Catalyst.
I'll have the possibility to try it at the end of Sep. I'll compare its flying characteristics with Bandit.
Thanks a lot for your input and help.

Re: Any facts about 2014 Ozone Catalyst 14m or Bandit6?

Yeah stefaans, I thought the same. Even if the Catalyst is not so powerful as the Bandit, above 20 knots it should fly pretty smooth while a 14m would give me some hard time.

Re: Any facts about 2014 Ozone Catalyst 14m or Bandit6?

I read somewhere that Ozone does not use pulleys for Catalyst.
What is the added value to use (or not to use) pulleys?
Whar are the pros and cons re pulleys?
I don't get it. Are these pulleys easily breakable stuff? Is it better not to have them?
