Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

Just had my first session on my LF thruster and must say i am super stoked. It is definetely the easiest foil. I have rode. Even compared to the the rocket fish that is aimed at begginer this thruster was a dream to ride. 6 months and plenty of sessions with mine too. Still having heaps of fun with...

Re: What's the dumbest thing you have seen a newbie do?

My mate a experienced kiter having a blonde moment. Laid out two sets of bars and lines. Not knowing which kite he was going to use. Pumped up his chosen kite. Proceeded to attach three lines from one bar and one line from the other bar. Using a tethered launch, the kite managed to sit there happily...

Re: Soloshot 3 - soup to nuts review

I am getting about 90 minutes. It has a habit of going flat and not saving the current video footage properly. So it won’t play it back. The file name is there but contains zero bytes.
I have recently bought a external USB power bank.
Which will give me some extra battery life.

Re: Soloshot 3 - soup to nuts review

I have been having great success with my soloshot3 optic 25.
Has to be fully protected from the wind. I put it downwind of my van.

Re: 2018 LF Thruster Foil

Interesting that in 2018 LF has the Impulse wings/foil (in collaboration with Cloud IX) and the Thruster wings (designed by Matt Wheeler). I currently ride original Liquid Force FF wings/foil in the waves. I am into riding real ocean waves and wondering which is the way to go. I was leaning towards...

Re: Ocean Rodeo next generation kites 2018 !

The Gen 6 Prodigy looks to have a thinner leading edge than my Gen 4.
Can anyone confirm this?

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Gen 6 (2018)

Update on my thoughts on the 2018 14.5m flite. Had a session using it with the ocean rodeo control bar. Sore a marked improvement in the steering. Originally used my old ATB bar with so I could get a direct comparison between my 2016 flite. The control bar has a lower Y than the ATB bar. So I think ...

Re: Soloshot3 a New way to film kiting

I have the Optic 25. Wind shakes it badly too. Has some play in the mechanism some where. Maybe if it was encased in a rock it wouldn’t shake.lol. I only use mine on off shore and cross shore winds now. That way I can shield it from the wind using my van. Hopefully the company survives to make the n...

Re: Ocean Rodeo Flite Gen 6 (2018)

Yes I got the 14.5m and 10m 2018 Flites. I weigh 67kg. Replaced my 2016 14.5m flite and the 10m flite is new to me. They now have black leading edges. White always looks dirty on the old flites. My thoughts on the 2018 14.5m flite compared to the 2016 version. The new flite 14.5 now has 2 pulleys in...
