Re: Deal on Airush ultra vs. Naish Boxer

It would be interesting to compare the actual size of both, Kitefinder made a video showing the 12 boxer to be substantially larger than the mono 12.
If this is also true for boxer vs ultra, an 8m boxer would be even less cost with maybe the same power....

Re: Cabrinha Contra 17 or 19m?

I have compared turbine 17 with some other brands 17s (not cabrinha though..) and the main thing is that the turbine is bigger, a lot bigger. The 15 turbine is probably more comparable to most brands 17. I have given the 17 turbine a fair amount of use and really like it. Huge low end, and the high ...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Material

As far as canopy material and construction, slingshot has had the right idea for a long time: single ripstop is nice for keeping the kite light, but with tons of panels sewn together (way, way more canopy stiching going every direction than average on brand x), tears are thus contained much better b...

Re: Best USCG buoyancy and impact vest for kitesurfing and windsurfing?

NP also offers this vest that is USCG approved, though I can't offer any experience using these. https://www.npsurf.com/collections/flotation-vests/products/neo-flotation-vest-uscg The High Hook Vest from NP looks so much like a regular boating vest, I think it would lik...

Re: Best USCG buoyancy and impact vest for kitesurfing and windsurfing?

PFD’s designed for whitewater kayaking / playboat kayaking are specifically designed for max freedom of movement while staying in place with secure fit. They have been fine tuned within that sport for good reason and transfer very well to Kiteboarding. Respectfully, I disagree. Have been evaluating...

Re: Turbine 19 vs 17 vs Flite 17 On The Ground Comparison

I have not flown the contra. I think what mackite is saying in their comparison is that the contra will fly in less wind, but when there is enough wind for the turbine to fly, it will have more power. In my experience, the turbine does fly in very light conditions, maybe not as light as my strutless...
