Re: Ozone Edge V9 vs OR flite vs Core XR5

I have XR5 in 13.5, 11 & 9m. First of all I rode the 9m and couldn't believe how long I stayed on the water with surfboard & twin tip, so much fun! I'm coming to them from Enduro 14 & 10m and prior to that had Edge V8 13m. The hang time of XR5 is immense, are very stable, they turn really well and h...

Re: Which GPS

I've just bought a used Locosys GT31 for £80 from FB Kitebay which doesn't do wireless like the GW-60 which is £200. The Garmin are £600+ unless you can get 'friends and family' deal from someone employed by Garmin. Love the versatility that Fenix 5 series offer, but not as accurate as Locosys as f2...

Re: F-One 2018

Thanks for sizing advice and taking trouble to take photo. The good news is that they are fairly similar, so the Mitu isn't as bad as I think it appears on the F-One website (and all dealers who have used those images) and seems to be more in line with how it appears on the videos. There does appear...

Re: F-One 2018

Thanks again for this information. Very helpful indeed & makes perfect sense that Mitu is of most use to the majority. I'm doing neither of the things the Slice & Signature offer, so seems that Mitu is the way ahead. Given I have a 5'8" Axis New Wave which eats up the chop where I sail, I'm wonderin...

Re: F-One 2018

I was enquiring about 2018 board availability in UK this afternoon. Seems they are due to arrive end of October & it's been recommended that I pre-order. I too am finding lack of independent information on the products frustrating, more so given this new scenario! I'm interested in the Slice 5'3" vs...

Re: FireWire Evo KiteSurfBoard

I found the contact on Firewire's website - https://firewiresurfboards.com/contact/ I filled in the information and I received some helpful advise after asking a few questions (I was told the 5'1" would be good for higher winds and the 5'3" would be good for medium winds) and contact details of som...

Re: FireWire Evo KiteSurfBoard

I was always tempted/interested in the MPH boards. Having spoke with a couple of people and how much they liked them. I really wanted a demo, but, nothing here in the UK. After much deliberation and finding out as much info as I could, I bit the bullet and took a punt on the EVO. Where did you get ...

Re: Core XR5 19.0 Review

Did you try the different steering line positions on the tips to slow down the turning? I have the Core 17m Free and noticed a big difference in response when I moved rear lines. Different bridle positions on front line offer adjustment of bar feedback, not tried this yet. Have 9, 11 & 13.5m XR5s wh...

Re: Moses T40 carbon to T60 Glass

They used to make a T40 carbon, but stopped showing on website, coinciding with introduction of the T60.

Re: Helmet recommendation

I've got one Tom and am really pleased with it. Like you I was suffering from neck ache when falling from foil using Mystic helmet. Having read on here about 'bucket effect' the Gath was recommended and it has stopped that problem. I do use ear plugs with mine in addition to the flaps, have dodgy ea...
