Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

I have always wanted to try Systems for kiting. After a week on my Hyperlite Team OTs, I am loving them. Great performance, Ive been crushing the PIQ International leaderboard for over a week on them (hit number one two days ago :D, Maui for the win!). Major improvement over the Index. I like them b...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

Impossible to say altho in my case I have become a fan of five strut kites. I really wish North would just do a color change instead of reincenting the wherl; the 2017 Evo is awesome.

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

" The Revel is very easy to fly so long as you dont try to power it up or consume the power too quickly (will backstall).." nope, you would struggle to backstall the 2017 rebel, it can take load just like the evo...it's not that high aspect (say compared to an edge) and the 2017 was the highest asp...

Re: Heavyweight kitelooping gear

I would strongly recommend a Naish Torch 10m for learning loops. The different sizes of Torch are not the same shape. The 10m is meant to be 50/50 wakestyle vs Big Air looping. The 8m is 75% Big Air to 25% Wakestyle. The 12m is 75% wakestyle to 25% Big Air. When flying the kites, the 8m always loops...

Re: I Do Not Know How Girls Work

I vote for board length being proportional to (non-gendered) human height, and board width being proportional to weight. I was just talking to a very light girl about wake boarding, and she was telling me how much of a difference the right board makes. She couldn't get an edge on a normal board. So...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

I have the 9 &13 2016 Evos and tried the Rebel 10 2018; your point of view is interesting about edging and window, I felt the same difference but expressed it in another way: to me, "the Rebel had more range" (I could use it in lighter wind and was able to go upwind easier)(also in harder wind was ...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

- the Rebel boosts stronger and has better hang time. Jumping with the Rebel is more about kite power whereas the Evo likes a boost after soing a load/pop. - the Rebel has a very smooth kiteloop with even power throughout the loop and does not yank you hard - the Rebel lacks plastic battens - the R...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

Any difference in the tip settings for the Rebel? Also in what conditions did you fly the kites so far, over/underpowered and how do they behave a across their wind range. I find my smaller EVOs (9M) really come alive towards the upper end while keeping relatively low bar pressure. My 12M gets a bi...

2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

Special thanks to Dan for helping me source a 12m 2018 Rebel. I already have a 12m 2017 Evo so I am comparing the two. Let me know anything you guys would like to know in terms of comparing the two kites. First, they are similar, both are great kites. The Rebel is a higher AR version of the evo and ...

Re: Kiteboarding Boots - Weight?

I eyeballed weight on Amazon. Focus on wet weight tho not dry weight. Funny I am upgrading my old LF Index Boots I bought years ago. I chose Hyperlite Team OT since there is a great sale in them atm. Hoping they are abit lighter than my Index boots. Really wish LF had kept making the Ultras in OT. I...
