Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

As my post got deleted I will post it again to shine some light. I have a hunch things are way better than before from my real life observation at the beach where some of the testing is done. Maybe Switch can post a company response to dilute all the BS. After reading some of these posts . Time has...

Re: Cheapest Android wear water proof watch? Woo 3

I have been using my HW2 in salt water. If you'd asked about a month ago I would have said it was working fine. I suspect it was a poor decision to go surfing recently that contributed to it (when I kite the watch is under my wetsuit which massively reduces the pressure of the water on the seals - i...

Re: High wind kite?

I'm talking about the Airush Diamond (http://airush.com/kites/diamond-3/) It used to only come in manly grey and purple but it looks like the latest model has similar coral colours to the rest of the airush range this year. I don't work in the industry but I have listened to the reps about the range...

Re: beginner hydrofoiler questions

I'd be a size up for first couple of times compared to people here. 12m in 14-16knots. I found the little extra power useful as I could make smaller dives which destabilised me less. Flat water helped massively for me. Anything over 16knots can give short pitch chop locally which adds to the challen...

Their bar and safety being shit and dangerous is all I need to always steer clear of Core.
Other bars with a conventional QR do work with Core kites though. Its not an insurmountable problem if they fly in the way you want a kite to fly.

Re: High wind kite?

At your weight, have you looked at the Airush range? They have a model designed specifically for lightweights. As you are talking about gusty days I'd have thought something designed to for a lightweight would be better than just a smaller kite designed for someone 20kgs heavier than you as you migh...

Re: Switch Lineup

Im 100kg with wet gear and I ride a TT 140x42, got the H3 16, had the H2 15.5 before. I can use the H3 down to around 10kn, not feeling any lag of power. :D thanks for advice. I am an owner of 16m H3 now :) Feels very light weight, well made. Turns fast, almost comparable to my 2015 Nobile T5 12m. ...

Re: Sitting on foil. So fun!

I only tried sitting for the first time last session. Was getting close a couple of times but not long runs.

Would you suggest learning both feet off the same side or straddle style (one foot off each side) first?

Re: Oceanus kite reels: i still see them

Just bought one of these things, first use today with my foil board, brilliant. Clipped onto a ring on the front strap while relaunching, board stayed with me, not drifting off. Once the kite was up, un clipped and off riding again. Too easy. Out of interest, did you not worry about your foil getti...

You are smack in the middle of the wind range. I did notice when borrowing a friends that you do need ...
