Re: On Shore Wave Kites

To understand the differences in both kites and wave sails, you have to consider the speed of the wave you are likely to be riding. For example big pacific waves that travel thousands of miles before they tip up on places like Maui are travelling considerably faster, than waves in areas without a gr...

Re: What's the worst thing about kite surfing?

It is launching and landing, the one social thing about kitesurfings predecessor windsurfing, you could just come in ditch your kit at the waters edge, take a breather and chat to whoever else was doing the same. Landing your kite, making sure you don't drop your lines over someone else, having to w...

Re: Ozone vs Core

Remind me, Rally? Three strut isnt it?

Three strut wont out range five.

The Core equivalent of a Rally is the Free, which is also priced lower and a more suitable kite for entry level, like the Rally.

Re: Ozone vs Core

Take that 'Exotex' or whatever it's called canopy material, it, like the dyneema kite lines are sourced in Germany, for sure the kites are put together in Sri Lanka, but the stuff they are actually made from is not Teijin for instance. They have a triple filament which ok you could call it marketing...

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

Unless you are psychic an XR5 can not be "exactly what our friend is looking for" because the OP has said virtually nothing about what he wants from a kite to replace his Rally other than that he has a twintip and that he wants to progress! Well as it happens I am quite psychic which can get very e...

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 s...

Re: Ozone vs Core

And guess who has flown and sold both? They ruined the Rally in 2014, which was why they had to come up with Turbines in smaller sizes, the Rally is a dog these days and everybody knows it hence they can't give them away. Says the UK ex-distributor of Slingshot Sports who is now the UK distributor ...

Re: Ozone vs Core

My question was: What would be the better choice between those three kites given my experience level. Yes good deals can be had on Rallys. From what I've seen and experienced the XR5 has a better wind range than the Rally. That's worth something to me. So pop quiz... Q..Why do you think there appea...
