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...

Re: Naish Dash - is it good for beginner?

What size are you looking at? In any case, If you already know you want to do freestyle and unhook ASAP, and don't mind taking a beating, then OK you could go for it if you're motivated. It is a very direct & super responsive kite though, so you need good kite control or will be punished for mistake...

Re: Pivot Unbaised Review. Good Kite For Surf?

I've briefly tested strapless in waves the following most recent kites: 7m Pivot vs 6m Slash 9m Slash vs 8m Enduro V2 9m Slash vs 9m Neo My findings riding these kites back to back: true wave kites, especially the Slash, you can completely shut off and forget by sheeting out, it really lets you ride...

Re: Used kite exploded in front of me and seller

A new LE bladder costs 120 USD or something like that I think. I would look elsewhere. And save up some more money to buy a decent, more recent kite in good condition. It's an expensive sport, so be prepared to splash some cash or find a cheaper hobby.

Re: My first long swim

Always good these type of stories on the forum, helps learn from each other's mistakes. I recognize the "oh the wind seems to be dying - it will probably pick up again / I have enough left for 1 more tack out and back"-scenario. I did the same thing last year, and no, the wind did not come back and ...

Airush Ultra 12m for waves

Thinking about Airush Ultra 12m, on a surfboard for 10-16 knots. The question is: how does it really hold up in the waves - being so light, I'm sure it drifts nicely. However, who has some first hand info on: - on/off power - can you completely depower by sheeting out, like a real wave kite? Bigger ...

Re: Unplanned arrival in Barcelona can I kite the next few days?

If I'm not mistaken, there is a kitespot in Barcelona right next to the airport. San Pere Pescador and Estartit are close-ish and are known kitespots which most likely will have school/gear. Not sure if it's the season yet though - I know in summer it gets regular thermal winds. Also, maybe google /...

Re: Trying to understand kite quiver

Where in Brazil are you going, and when? If you're going to Cumbuco in the windy season, 12 and 9 would be good. If you're heading further North to Jeri, you need a 9 and a 7. The ideal quiver for your weight is 12-9-7; maybe try and get a deal on a 7-9 combo of a few years old to save some cash? Co...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines fail

I had a similar issue with Air Mauritius/South African Airlines. Booked via South African, but it was a co-shared flight with Air Mauritius. Arrived on the island without any bags. Went to the "general" lost luggage office upon landing, filled out the forms etc. "Your bags will arrive on the next fl...
