Re: Shinn Shinnster vs Spleene Zone 5.3

I agree with NEKite....I think he hit it on the nail that comparing the 2 boards is very very difficult since they are 2 different beasts. I have not ridden a modern Zone but have a lot of time on the old zone, and a Litewave DV8 (in the same ball park). The Shinnster and the BRM Paipo are totally d...

Re: DIY Hydrofoil South Padre Island, Texas

Denise, the foil is to long for the bay. Petra and I went out and body dragged with it close to a 1/4+ miles out and it is still to shallow. Not willing to take a chance and hit bottom and screw things up. We will wait for good Gulf conditions to get started again. Another hard norther coming our wa...

Re: Trainer Kites: Ocean Rodeo React vs Flysurfer Viron 2 DL

Hi, I do not have experience with the Flysurfer but I do with the React. I use 2 different kites for beginner trainer kites depending on wind speed. I use the React and also an Ozone 4m UNO. The UNO is more expensive since you nee to buy a bar and a harness in addition to the kite. The React comes w...

Re: Small SLE kite (6m range) for learning vs trainer?

Take a look at the Ozone UNO 4m. I use it a lot for teaching, use it as a buggy kite and also in 40+mph surf conditions. It's an awesome very versatile little kite. You can use it with any 4 line bar. My friend bought one for his wife (105#) to use and he used it a lot for when he went to Punta San ...

Re: Why are Kite Lessons so expensive in the US???

To the OP it looks like most people have answered correctly that you get what you pay for. So here is a breakdown of what we see here and what we as instructors have heard over and over again. Rates vary from $50hr to $175hr and maybe more. We even have some new school coming here to South Padre tea...

Re: The 2015 Naish Fusion Control System - Break the Mold

Bar looks nice but DAM it, put some red on the left side. Looking at those pics posted by southflorida, even their own riders can't decide which way to hold or set up the bar. For safety sakes a little red on the left would be great. Naish for years has had red on the left and if I ever had to help ...

Re: Anyone riding really small surfboards?

Kite companies must be looking at the surf industry and seeing whats hot and then take about 2 to 3 months of copy/paste R&D and then send some look alike out. It will be interesting to see what the new Naish/North/RRD/SS boards are like but I can tell you that the SS T-Rex is a DOG compared to the ...

Re: Boardriding Maui Paipo, lightwind..or any wind.

Finally got the Shinnster and got it all padded up and then out for a comparison to the BRM Paipo in varying conditions. Now board to board comparison: Weight - My Paipo was already padded so I had to wait for my pads to get the Shinnster padded to have a semi fair comparison of weight. So with near...

Re: Help with Nitro vs Lithium

Can not help on the Nitro info but comparing the 2 Airush kites I would suggest the 12m Lithium. Your 9m Wave is a very versatile kite and now that you want to jump into lower wind kiting the Lithium is much nicer than the 2014 X. The 2014 X is way to high aspect for the winds you are looking at. Th...
