Re: Kite Inflation Tips (Cabrinha Kitesurfing)

Why not bend a tip or stand it up and SEE/FEEL it. I guess I don’t get why you would possibly care what a gauge says? Especially a cheap inaccurate one? I use the gauge to get me to the point when I know I need to start feeling the LE for the final squeeze test. http://emoticons.datahamster.com/yea...

Depends on the LE diameter. Kitesize is irrelevant. But it's a guide, so they generalize by size.

Re: Kite Inflation Tips (Cabrinha Kitesurfing)

The above inflation pressures obviously depend on leading edge diameters. For example, my 12m Enduro V2 with it's relatively skinny leading edge is definitely under inflated at 6-7psi.

Re: Officially announced: North becomes Duotone

Yes. Remember, I work directly with the marketing department... And it can happen that they North Sails comes with its own kites. Or maybe license to another brand. But they need to go a long way to get where Duotone is. Yeah but you are dealing with the Duotone marketing dept. and not North-mother...

Re: Switchblade 11m experience?

The 11m Switchblade has more low end than all 12m kites in the market save a few specialty kites. This is not opinion, but fact . Personally, I ride the 11m over the 12m and I weight 185 pounds. Please provide independent evidence to support this statement. Thanks. Go to any demo and see for yourse...

Re: Switchblade 11m experience?

The 11m Switchblade is a hidden gem. Day after day my retailers sell troves of 12m Switchblades while I quietly ride the 11m (and 9m btw). They all tell me that it's hard to sell the 11m. The 11m turns almost as fast as the 10m and has almost the low end of the 12m. In onshore surf it produces grea...

My guess is that if the goods have already left the factory they have already effectively been sold once so they can then be sold on further down the supply chain.

I have 9m and 12m 2018 PIVOTS, will weigh them tomorrow, and post numbers, I'm guessing manufacturers weigh kites without attached bridles, the same as boards weighed without fins.
The weight quoted below is for the kite with bridles.
