Re: At last ... got to ride the Rebel (2018) and XR5 back to back

I’d take the Free for loops. I demoed the Free size 15 and could not stand the annoying trailing edge flapping noise when looping it...flapping like a shower curtain :lol: i returned that 3 strutter right away I rode the Free a few months back and it was pretty light so it felt very similar to the ...

Re: At last ... got to ride the Rebel (2018) and XR5 back to back

Thanks for the reviews lindseym. I’m a bit disappointed how few users leave reviews of demo time or even their own gear, so I appreciate your input. It’s a shame you didn’t have both kites in a size 12 as well. I use XR5 (6,9,12,19) and it is perfect for what I want (freeride/freestyle all-rounder)...

At last ... got to ride the Rebel (2018) and XR5 back to back

Wind - about 26 to 32 Kite size - Both 9m Bars - North click bar and the Sensor on the Core Rider - 155 lbs Overall I was extremely impressed with both kites. The wind was really gusty at times and felt really comfortable on each. Both also have alot of high end. I didn't have to depower each more t...

Re: 2018 EVO

I will be trying out the new Evo this weekend and will report to this thread. I had a quiver of 2014 Evos for a few years and absolutely loved them. Then, switched over to the 2016 Evo and did not like it at all. I sold them and went to Best. Recently though I decided to go back to North and purchas...

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

I haven't cared to even try the Ride Engine as I don't like to be running along with the herd and there weren't any other brands hard shell harnesses to try on locally. Anyhow, overall - I was very happy with the CS (got the Medium for my 33 waist). I'ts not supper-stiff, but it's very firm, sits r...

Re: Darkslide add-ons.

It would be great to see a tutorial or also just the proposed move described in steps. This particular one is really very few frames, but it looks like he uses the kiteloop for a backroll from the darkslide, and then a second backroll while still in the air. How do I get enough pop from the slide t...

Re: Riding blind - relation to board and or fins

^ Huh, I sort of suspected this and have a huge issue with my seat harness and blind riding :( Will need to resort to a sliding hook :) Yea - I have attempted it with a seat harness but have yet to hit it - I think the key is to sheet out a tiny bit so you have the extra slack and the kite doesn't ...

Re: Riding blind - relation to board and or fins

Had to ride on a different board after going home - a North Gonzalez, where I used a F-One Trax HRD during the holidays, and found it much harder on the Gonzalez, as there seemingly was a much bigger tendency to push me back. Is it possible that this is board dependent? What factors could play a ro...
