Re: Woo version comparison update?

@trickcoach
First you're saying my analogy makes no sense and then you're agreeing that the woo is very inaccurate?
Make up your mind! :D

Re: Butt Slide Kite Kartoon

Reminds me of when I was a newb, out with a 13m Peter Lyn tractor of a kite, came off the board and found my shorts weren't tied. With the harness on, couldn't fix.

Re: Woo version comparison update?

Thanks kitelife. Interesting link. Think I'll skip the WOO3 for now. "better sensors" sounds like marketing hype to me, I think the issue will be that the sensors are and were fine but the 3D algorithms built in by the manufacturers are maybe OK for a Wii, but not OK for kiteboarding usage. At the m...

Woo version comparison update?

Has anyone seen some more comparisons of the WOO2 vs WOO3? Last couple I saw the WOO3 was getting about double the total air time and about 15% higher jump height, in some cases ones that the WOO2 completely missed when located very close to each other on the same board. I'm curious as to whether Wo...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Mako vs Nomad Wave TT

How much concave does Simon put in his Nomads? Do they have any significant flex? I've been designing up my own high concave boards (love them) and the only issue is that a standard sort of construction won't allow any significant flex.(Hyperbolic saddle shapes are like eggs, very resistant to defor...

Re: Pacasmayo launch video and small session

Hi, sharing the passion for travel and kite surfing. Swell is on the way. I have been here for 3 days. Kitesurf every day on a 12 and 9 meter. Swell is small and at sometime to many kite surfers. https://youtu.be/-A74TrE08WI We seem to be missing video every time you get to a wave when heading out....

Re: Italian Kitesurfer dies in Brazil

Googled Porto Seguro - seems to be a narrow beach with high vertical cliffs near the water edge. Maybe a rotor caused by sudden gust picked him up and threw him down? From the google pic it does not seem seguro to me... Seems very probably given your information about a cliff. I've flown radio cont...

Re: Harness replacement webbing

I can vouch for cglazier's answer, the speedy stitcher. My last repair was original Neil Pryde windsurfing harness webbing I've had since 1998 (it had a decade to rest) I used my speedy stitcher and some 550kg breaking strain roof rack/truck deck tie down webbing . The thread I use is thick waxed ny...

Re: Woo 1.0 vs 2.0 vs 3.0

I think we have to remember it's not a tape measure, ultrasonic measure or laser measure. The technology is very new and still in the process of refinement. As I mentioned on page 2 of this thread, it can theoretically be thrown off by something as simple as lumping in jump time with sea level ridin...

Re: Woo 1.0 vs 2.0 vs 3.0

*cut* I would guess that the Woo team has refined the algorithm in the device with each version. I can't find a white paper or something on their site so I'm not sure. Also, it was mentioned in a thread on Seabreeze that the Woo probably uses a Kalman filter to calculate height/airtime/impact and t...
