2018 SS Turbine- Small Sizes Gone

I was looking at SS's website yesterday and noticed that the 2018 turbine no longer has sizes below 13 available. Anyone know why they discontinued? Seemed like a lot of people liked them. I was considering the 11 to replace an aging 12 in the next year. To much overlap with the rally possibly?

Re: OR Soul: is this over kill for cold water protection?

I have had mine for 2 years now with no issues. I've kited in 40-50 F water with sufficient layers underneath and was unfazed. I have not experienced any of the evaporative cooling CaptainArgh experiences either. I even put my dock in northern MI in with it in the spring. This takes a couple of hour...

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

I'm still trying to understand what this all means... So the low end is similar to the rocket but it sounds like the thruster has better top end and the low end stability on the thruster is good as well. Why would you buy the rocket then? are there any advantages to going with the rocket compared to...

Re: Mittens vs. 3 Finger Gloves vs. 5 Finger Gloves

I have 5mm three finger mitts and they work great for me. I prefer having my index finger free for trimming and other adjustments. I usually wear mittens for snow kiting and found them to be really cumbersome. I never experienced any additional fatigue either from the thick neoprene.

Re: Stranded kitesurfer used Apple watch to call for a ride

That's some awesome reporting right there... They probably googled hydrofoil and a guy on his Airchair popped up not knowing the difference.

Re: Hard shell harnesses comparison

I had a similar experience with the C1 as riddim1. I wrote my issues in another thread about it and have moved on after trying to break it in for the entire spring and summer. I'm more than likely going to demo a RE sometime next spring. It looks like Dakine did a total over haul of the C1 design an...

Re: Liquid Force Happy Foil Complete Kit (2016)

Why are you changing up? And would you mind sharing your impressions of the happy foil. There aren't a ton of non-bias reviews out there on this setup.

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

The cost of the new thruster isn't bad actually. I think they're $900 but without a travel bag (no bag is no issue for me). Can you tell me how the liens of the happy foul is? That was my only concern with it. I've spoke with a couple of people and they've said it's afaster foil than the rocket.
