.....The closed-cell foil kites, however, will continue to shine!
When I first made the switch from open cell to closed cell, I was amazed at how vastly superior a "good" closed cell kites is in all aspects to "good" inflatables.

Re: On Shore Wave Kites

.....In onshore power is needed on demand to be able to keep up with the wave and you can't have a kite shooting way the fuck upwind into a dead spot where you can't get any reaction out of it. Good drift is good for both but this is where similarities end. So how do the popular wave kites rate in ...

On Shore Wave Kites

Pretty big gap here in my knowledge base about onshore wave kite characteristics. I do lake on-shore wave (no more than 3ftwave, most of the time in less than 1ft of water), and on/side/side-on ocean wave kiting. I have very little off side-off ocean wave experience. And I use the same kite for all ...

Re: Ozone vs Core

I have to say how disappointed I am to many of the responses to my initial query. I thought I was asking a fairly simple question about three kites. I am sorry you are disappointed with responses, and likely you feel disappointed with my responses. My intent is not to discourage you. And I wish you...

Re: Ozone vs Core

....impecunious circumstance..... .....ive no idea what the pricing structure is like in the states where they are the import up against local market brands like slinger and liquid force, but then they are not using European sourced materials like dyneema rather than spectra Sir GraemeF, or what ev...

Re: Ozone vs Core

....however I didn't have to be psychic, because, oh look! our OP was actually asking about guess what? A Core XR5! GraemeF is right here. While the OP is asking about kites in general, he also mentions two specific kites. As most posters have at least alluded to, the OP has likely bought into some...

Re: Ozone vs Core

It's a peculiar logic that distrusts the word of a person who's very living is derived upon his reputation for veracity. Over the years, and it is no different now to the way it was back in the windsurfing days of yesteryear, that begat this sport, if you lied, or overstated your wares, you didn't ...

Re: Ozone vs Core

If you listen to someone who's living is derived from "brand X's" sales (or they wish it was), you can easily recognize it. GraemeF is good example of someone who will tell you everyone else sucks, but my stuff is the best. If you take advice about gear on this forum, don't take it from someone who ...

Re: Ozone Chrono V3

You need to get on a Speed 5 my friend, you might be pleasantly surprised. The Chrono completely to the Speed 5. And comparing the Chrono 1 to Sonic FR (I had both in 18), the Sonic blew Ozone out of the water for performance, stability, and inflation. The SonicFR 18m to this day is still my favori...

Re: Ozone vs Core

....It's absolutely not about brand or prestige for me........ .......if I need to spend a little extra to get the right thing I think it's money well spent. First off, how did you arrive at Core and Ozone as choices??? Locals using them (would be the only reason to spend more for them)??? No way w...
