Re: Shinn Jackson foil 120

I have the 145 Jackson and the P wing with 60cm mast. I just started foiling altogether. So far I have about 3 hours on this board and after an hour I was already riding long stretches like 500M in the air. I have no other foiling experience but I think this setup is really easy to learn on. I have ...

Re: light wind surfboard VS foil board

I agree with Matteo a large twintip door board like the Spleene Door is far superior to a surfboard. But a hydrofoil is even better. I was able to ride in the same range as hydrofoil with my 22M foil kite and the Spleene door 164 but I am getting into hydrofoils now and it's way more fun and you can...

Re: Hand-held vacuum cleaner for inflation

My 22M Aurora 2 inflates in under a minute in 3 or 4 knots I had flysurfers before same thing. You pull the front lines very hard and you walk back and the kite will inflate and launch in almost no wind. I don't see why you would need this. If there's not enough wind to inflate it that way it won't ...

Re: Best hurricane ultra high wind 40 plus knot kite

I have ridden my 7.5 kahoona in 40 knots a few times and I'm always amazed how this little guy takes a beating and remains very civilized the large Kahoonas were slow but the small ones were great. It's a shame they don't make them anymore! For the 50 knots I use an old but new Waroo 5M it's a 2008 ...

Re: Does Best kiteboarding warranty really work?

I dealt with Best last year and they were pretty good they sent me replacement parts quickly and replaced a kite. But now that they are near bankruptcy things may be different. If you can,t work things out you can get parts from the KiteFix KiteAid or other similar websites etc..

Re: 29 yo woman dies in Aytré / France (near La Rochelle)

Totally agree with you Windrider it's not for everyone things can go bad very quickly you have to be on the ball at all times and very knowledgeable about what to do! A few kitemare will teach you a lot!

Sad news regardless.

Re: Are old kites/bar systems obsolete?

I used to own waroos I still have a 5M 2008 that I use on the snow in crazy weather (with another bar). They are good kites so no worries. The bar was the weakest link. The safety is fine if you attach to the ring above the strap then it will flag out on an single front line like modern kites. But i...

Re: Best Roca vs TS - which one to choose?

The high end on the Roca is great it's​ one of those kite that you feel you can​ push and it never gets scary. I have had my 17 Roca way past 20 knots close to 25 and it is still very civilised. The 12m way past 30 knots and still in a very gentle manner. My 9m TS would often yank me off the board p...

Re: Best Roca vs TS - which one to choose?

They are 2 very different animals. I have owned both and now I am very happy with my Roca quiver. The Roca has a lot more low end and stability the hangtime is insane. The kite bring you down softly it's almost impossible to miss a jump. For Old school it's unbeatable. If you want to do freestyle th...

Re: Zian kites

I demoed one a few years ago a 14M i didn't like it I thought the power delivery was uneven and it was hard to find the sweet spot on the bar while riding. I don't remember what the model was. But it's a very personal choice if you can try before you buy it's always good!
