Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

I heard through the grapevine the 2018 Evo is a boosting monster. Looking at this thread http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2397977&p=994295&hilit=North+Evo+2018#p994295 Its certainly possible. Looks like the Evo is due for release at the end of November based on the date on that blog art...

Re: [Beginner] Impact+Life vest advice?

50N floatation vest gives you way more buoyancy than a (traditional) impact vest. I'll wear an impact vest on the twin tip but when foiling I always go for the buoyancy aid because it makes light wind relaunch much easier. I have a cheap Gul Garda. Easy to float. No need to tread water at all. Great...

Re: Apple Watch Series 2...

I was thinking of buying a Woo but for around the same price, Id rather have an apple watch. Best Buy has the Series 2 for $269, and they're bound to be even cheaper come Black Friday sales. As this thread has become about Xensr as much as apple watch, I don't suppose you might be able to comment o...

Re: Apple Watch Series 2...

Ah yes (from the press release): “It’s exciting for us at Xensr to unlock the potential of wearable technologies into sports where dedicated devices like the Xensr Air, Trace, Woo or PIQ tracker were required for detailed data like jumps and airtime." I had assumed that this would have been a simila...

Re: Apple Watch Series 2...

Umm, this requires a xensr device to work. Android version works nicely. My experience is that the Xensr logs similar heights to Woo v1 and PIQ. I'd test against Woo v2 but I'm awaiting a replacement device after it leaked. My personal theory is the charge pins corrode just enough to leak over time ...

Re: Which helmet?

I like the kind with ear protection. If there is a sun cap would be nice too haven seen many. When on holiday and I need a sun visor (I haven't gotten on with sunglasses so well) I just wear a old cotton cap underneath my helmet. Needs to be pretty thin to fit comfortably. The visor part will bend ...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Impressions

Slightly off topic but falls into the 'Impressions' category - I got the chance at the weekend to try back to back the Core XR5 (12m) against my flite. I was a little nervous about doing this as the press/industry buzz about the XR5 was that this is the kite that everyone will want to try and catch ...

Re: Wave surfing swell with kite hydrofoil

If you have a look in the hydrofoil section, there is a discussion about $300 foils from china. I think some of the links to some of those are for rip off copies of the takuma surf foil. Thats where I'd start looking

Re: Kite equipment, weight (scale results for a trip)

Interesting. My last trip was all in at 21 kg. 2 kites and 1 board though, so a bit less stuff. I did a practice pack of a foil instead of the board and got about 23kg with 1 kite and convertible foil board. Forecast freshened up though so I took the twin tip instead. I'm sure when I measured my Nor...

Re: Mounting a hydrofoil on your TT

The new ierofoil amphidrome thing (Twinfix?) features a mounting system designed around the standard 90 x 165 hole pattern. You can buy the fitting kit separately and clip it onto your twin tip. Saves drilling holes in your twin tip. I imagine it would help a little bit with the flex you get from a ...
