Re: Convertible surf board

Thanks. The stubbo is similar to how your describe the Double Agent. Its fun but only if you don't compare it too closely with a real surf board. I remember the shinnster felt a little better to ride as a pure freeride board. That's the second recommendation for the Zeeko PocketAir I have heard now ...

Re: Convertible surf board

The Zeeko Slash is worth a look. Especially at a 50% discount. http://zeeko-kites.com/gb/kite-boards/270-slash-5-2-surf-3760253111713.html I had one of the best downwinders of my life on this board. Foiled on it for about 2 hours until the thermal kicked in. Swapped the foil for some fins and then ...

Convertible surf board

I have had a few sessions on the OR Duke and as a freeride surf board its streets more fun than my shinn stubbo as a freeride board for when the wind picks up. I don't really want to have another board so I'm looking to get a convertible. No real waves here, just sloppy chop so don't need large wave...

Re: Old North trust bar with new EVO

The Y split point moved up between 2014 and 2015 by about 2m. That shouldn't affect the way that the kite flies - or if anything should give you a little more power. Your real problem is the safety. 2013 bar was dual front line flag and the 2017 Evo is single front line flagging kite. The risk here ...

Re: new bar grip

Bicycle cork bar tape is also an option. Its theoretically designed for outdoor use more (rain and water) but realistically I think it just comes in a longer roll as the main difference. I have tried the proper windsurf boom grip before. Its cheap to order and gives a good anti-slip finish but I fou...

Re: Which bar for women?

Many non PU coated centre line above the bar systems have variable height adjustment for the cleats (I know North, Blade and Best bars do). You still get the same range of overall trim, as when bringing the trim cleat closer to the rider the trim range above the cleat is made longer by design. The d...

Re: My first long swim

Done a very similar situation TomW but shorter, warmer swim. Wind dropped but I wasn't too far out so I decided to body drag with the board. As I went over a bit of chop my chicken loop triggered as it caught on the edge of the board (sliding spreader harness moved it further round than normal). Dro...

Re: New Switch Kites Helium3 only days away :-)

Thanks posting the weight information Felix. That sounds right on the money to me. The weight is pretty similar to the single strut kites I have weighed (or close enough that I wouldn't discount them for light wind on weight alone). Interested to hear the flying characteristics as the reviews start ...

Re: New Switch Kites Helium3 only days away :-)

Thanks for including rider weight Felix. Makes a big difference knowing if a kite will work for larger/smaller riders. I have been suggesting switch to some of my larger friends as I know Marc is one of the bigger guys on the tour and they have been caught out in the past trying kites that just fold...

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional

The problem is he's only done half the job. Without the clever way of bolting onto a twin tip non-destructively, its still another board you need in your quiver. The ierofoil solution (sold by takoon now) was clever because the stiffness you lost in having a flexy twin tip was partially compensated ...
