Re: Kurtis Goggles

Has anyone tried a pair of spoggles? They are primarily used within chemical manufacturing plants to help prevent splatter in the eyes. So they would provide the same type of splash protection at a fraction of the cost and some brands look better than the Kurtis glasses.

Re: 2019 Slingshot Material

Mackite released a good video and an excellent breakdown about the foil lineup on their blog which is on their website. They show weights with est. speed ranges. The spreadsheet also shows the other mfg for comparison.

Re: Best USCG buoyancy and impact vest for kitesurfing and windsurfing?

Pretty sure you won’t find a kite specific uscg approved vest because of requirements they have for buckels... I just bought the ride engine vest and it fits great and doesn’t impact my motion.

Re: Flying an IDS kite (two line safety) using one line safety bar

I posted a similar question and I did test it before going out and it worked fine with no issues. I tested it in moderate winds for the kite. Either way it reacted the same way my single line kites do when I flagged out.

Re: 12m or 14m Slingshot Rally for 200 lbs riders ??

I would go off of what you learned on. If you enjoyed the size of the board you were taught in go with that. If not I would try a light wind board out before purchasing. I tried one and didn’t care for it because there was to much performance sacrifice because of the size. I’m also 40lbs lighter tha...

I might misunderstand what you are looking for but C changes as it slides up and down to adjust to the rider.

Re: How old is your oldest kite you still ride on?

I learned on my 2012 Cab Vector and have had a love hate relationship with it. It's not fast, steering is kind of numb, jumps OK for a 12m but I have had to make zero repairs on it and its in pretty good condition considering its the kite I learned on in 2012. I ended up buying a new bar today since...
