Re: Kitesurfing Saint Martin

Like the other poster said, a lot has changed in St. Martin/Maarten after IRMA. The best bet is to talk to Wind Adventures and they can give you an idea of what to expect on the island these days. http://wind-adventures.com/en Manu and Cecile run the center and their son is Theo Demanez, a rising st...

Re: Edge Armor Skin top

Ok, thanks. What I'm after is how it differs to some other compression products, like Skins or Under Armour brands? I wear the above for Sun protection and abrasion in the water, but I do feel cold in it. Hence a sleeveless neoprene top as well for me... Hey downunder, the Edge Wind Top uses Armors...

Re: A friendly warning: don't kite in Singapore

Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

SB is a mega-loop monster, rides unhooked, and is serviceable in the surf Have you just said that Cabrinha design team is a bunch of morons and they've been nothing but waisting their time with FX for nothing while the SB is doing the exact same thing? :lol: :thumb: Nice sales pitch! No - that's wh...

Re: Video: Cabrinha Quickloop Adjustable Bar. Trimlite Vs Recoil System

It's best to wind the bars by pulling the loop and mainline assembly far enough away from the bar so that the trim system doesn't make it to the bar end when you are winding the lines. that first wrap doesn't need to be tight. Kinking the main line (the black polyurethane tube) is not good. Leave th...

Re: Is the rise of foiling affecting the sales of big light wind kites?

This is interesting. I don't see a material difference in big inflatable kites sold. Inflatables up to 19m were never meant to ride in 5-6 knots of wind. They were more for heavy riders. Below 9 knots of wind is ultra light. Steady 9 knots is really where a TT board with big efficient inflatable was...

Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

Doesn't matter, Cores are a lot easier on one's arms, especially the GTS-es. SB has always been a phat elephant in that regard. FYI, GTS <> Switchblade. These are totally different kites. When was he last time you rode a Switchblade, what year, what bridle mode? I work for Cabrinha and find that I ...
