Re: Firewire EVo versus Vader

Interesting opinion above - what board do you ride exaxtly? Or is it a custom?

Re: Neo, Dice or Evo for 12m

If you want a North kite for low wind, why don't you just get their specific low-wind kite? The Mono has some serious low end and drifts nicely. Depending on your weight and which board you plan to ride in 14-16 knots, you might even get away with an 11m or even a 10m. Edit: just read that you are n...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

I think it's mostly up to government to enforce extreme measures down our throat, but they are all sell outs, so nothing happens. Most people are too stupid to realize what's going on. Governments should enforce things like complete bans on all types of plastic; obligatory recycling and huuuuge taxe...

Re: What qualities in kite translate to pull when turning/working the kite?

The way the kite turns plays a role: pivotal turning kites turn almost on the spot around their wingtip, without generating power. Kites that turn in a wider arc generate pull when turning. There are probably a bunch of other factors at play too though. Enduro v2 could work for that. But if you're o...

Re: Firewire EVo versus Vader

From my experience testing the Firewire boards (own Vanguard & Vader, tested Evo): Vanguard (thruster): earlier planing than Vader, easier to ride through the lulls, tracks very well upwind, more stable than Vader, a bit faster than Vader. Chopwise OK, especially if you ride it on its edge. Turns ar...

Re: new 2017/2018 Naish Boxer

Backstalling occurs more often in light winds, so it could partially be a technique thing. However, the 2017/2018 Naish lines tend to stretch easily, resulting in longer front lines, making your kite prone to backstall. How often have you used your bar? If you've used it quite a few times, this coul...

Re: OneEye

One eye is a powerful wave, breaking in super-shallow waters on a razorsharp reef, with cross-off shore winds and strong currents ready to take you out to Madagascar in no time. Even at high tide there is no margin for error - I think you've got about 2 feet of water between your board and the rocks...

Re: Ozone Edge V8 15m

I'm also looking at a 15m kite for summer and the 15m Edge V8 is an option. I'd like a 15m Zephyr but Ozone don't make one so I'll probably go for a 17m Zephyr for 10-15 knots then change down to my 12m Enduro V2. UK south coast (eastern Solent), 82kg, North Select 138/41. I can't boost (the truth ...

Re: Mauritius - intermediate waves?

Although Manawa on a small day could work as an intermediate wave, it is very far from shore, and "too popular" imo. I was there last year and the wave can be nice, but the distance to the shore and especially the ridiculous amount of people who try to catch it without any respect for other riders /...

Re: Naish Dash - is it good for beginner?

Wow, that would be interesting. :D Thanks for the tips! So it is not at all "Sheet in n Go" kite ? It is 9m and 12m hopefully is good for my weight of 73 kg Here the wind is in the range of 12-20 kn, sometimes 25 kn. No, the Dash is definitely not a sheet and go kite. The description on the Naish w...
