Re: You love it - SUP and kite shop in Dusseldorf - Do not buy!

I had similar bad experience as the OP. Ordered a wetsuit and waited over 2 months. After numerous calls and emails they finally offered to send me an alternative wetsuit, different brand and color. It did not fit and is now collecting dust in my locker. Be very careful when ordering, especially if ...

Re: Oman Air to Zanzibar - golf bag included in baggage allowance?

So after some phone calls I can confirm that Oman Air is a NO-NO for any kind of large sports equipment... A CS agent confirmed that NOTHING over 158 linear centimeters (width + height + length) is allowed on their planes. The only option would be to send it via cargo...

Oman Air to Zanzibar - golf bag included in baggage allowance?

I'm about to fly with Oman Air from Milan to Zanzibar and Oman Air states at many places on their website that golf bags travel free on all their routes to/from/through Muscat. However, no maximum dimensions have been specified anywhere.. Has anyone traveled with them and can you get away with a boa...

Re: Help me complete my quiver: 80 kg rider

What about the board? I currently have just one board - Brunotti Buzz 136 x 41 cm. What would be a suitable twintip board to buy for light wind? I am 80 kg and 190 cm tall.

Re: Help me complete my quiver: 80 kg rider

Thanks again for all the input. I didn't realize I could use the same bar for all kites (if I buy Cabrinha kites), which would save some money and weight when traveling. I will be looking for a 9m Switchblade (or maybe some other compatible all-around model, if there is any in Cabrinha's line up). M...

Re: Help me complete my quiver: 80 kg rider

Thanks a lot for the input. I will be looking for a 9m kite then. What about the light wind kite? Is 9-12-17 a good quiver or maybe I would need another one to fill the gap between 12 and 17m? I don't really want to spend money on more than 3 kites... Also, what about those C-kites? Should I be look...

Re: Help me complete my quiver: 80 kg rider

I meant to say a kite suitable for wave riding, as stronger winds usually go with waves, so it would make sense to buy a more specialized kite for stronger winds.. not sure if that reasoning is correct though :) I chose the Cabrinha Switchblade as my main kite because everywhere on the internet the ...

Help me complete my quiver: 80 kg rider

Hi everyone, I recently bought my first kite - Cabrinha Switchblade 12m + Cabrinha Overdrive 1X Recoil Control Bar Quickloop (both 2016). I am a newbie who recently learned how to do transitions and to go upwind consistently (after wasting $2,000 on lessons). I plan to ride all over the world, mainl...
