Re: Wash or not wash your kites

Personally I don't wash them, unless there's something unpleasant or likely to mark them same with my windsurf sails, rolled and stored from riding in salt water, salt is a preservative, less likely to get mice and furry things making nests and having a chew. Kites however don't get left that long t...

Re: Core Nexus and Nexus LW

Great Review in Kiteworld this month, which given they had 6 days of wind and unlimited size range is pretty comprehensive. Re looping, the XR5, it loops quickly and easily with no stress pivoting about its tip and not generating a deal of pull. The GTS series can be brutal during a loop sequence, b...

Re: Greatstone in uk

You can get off the Varne in a Northerly and it is sideshore, you also have some lee shore downwind as the bay curves out toward Dungeness point, but it'll be gusty.

Re: Ozone Edge V8 15m

Half Price cos you can only half use it (because of your dodgy knee) half the time I suppose.. Can't think of any other reason, in reality you should pay double for the likely liability your wonky riding style might do to the brand image. ;-)

Re: Ozone Edge V8 15m

So you're saying you're prejudiced against Core because of colour, it's a black thing yeah? So racist.

Re: Ozone Edge V8 15m

I'm also looking at a 15m kite for summer and the 15m Edge V8 is an option. I'd like a 15m Zephyr but Ozone don't make one so I'll probably go for a 17m Zephyr for 10-15 knots then change down to my 12m Enduro V2. UK south coast (eastern Solent), 82kg, North Select 138/41. I can't boost (the truth ...
