Re: Light Years Ahead - The Airush Ultra V2

Still heavy compared with BRM Cloud D (~30-50% more). The 8.0 D_0 (1.65kg) is the same weight as a 5m Ultra 2 and the 8.0m D_1 (1.90kg) (one strut version) is the same weight as the 6m Ultra 2. 4m Uno2 weighs 1.3kg which is also light (and much cheaper!) compared with the Ultra2 4m at 1.48kg (BRM Cl...

Re: Switch kite EU import tax ?

As far as I know, Switch uses a EU based warehouse for distribution in the EU and the prices already include VAT.

Re: Epirb? flares? 2 way radio set to maritime channel, cell ph in a waterproof case?

I use to use a spot tracker years ago on my motorcycle (and later a Delorme tracker sailing that does two way satellite text messages) but I think a semi waterproof phone inside a waterproof pouch is far more useful to coordinate with people that might be able to react (at least in most kitesurfing ...

Re: Switch Lineup

I'm not a kite designer so I don't know exactly how flattening it out would affect turning amongst all the variables they've changed, but I think you get a more efficient kite for a given weight and potentially more power with less wasted fabric. BRM Clouds are flatter than most kites and they turn...

Re: Switch Lineup

Yes, I think the new 7m-12m Helium 3 is essentially a refined and lightened evolution of the Element 5. Both have a similar aspect ratio but the helium is flatter giving a higher projected area per size which I think is a good thing for foil/wave.

Re: Who has Crazyfly kite? Are they durable ? How is the quality?

Are CF the only medium/large kite company that makes their kites outside asia? It's interesting that they can keep their costs down producing in europe.

Re: Ozone Chicken loop Megatron smaller

This is the video i used by a friend. It's not too difficult but it takes a bit of patience to get things lined up right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn70o6Yk2xI The main thing that was challenging to wrap my head around was to push the half completed knot through the splice since you don't have...
