I wish I could post a photo but I can't. It wouldn't really impress you anyway unless you actually flew it. Picture RDS description, then make the kite out of an old pair of Sundek or OP surf trunks from the 1970s. Or imagine what all of the current kites on the market would look like if they were t...

2007 Airush should be out in about 2 months. Contact Sky Hi at info@skyhiusa.com. New Flow and DNA are really good. I have been flying the 07 Airush DNA 9m for a while now and it is really worth checking out. I will note that I received the kite from Airush as a tester because I do some board design...

Yeah, there are two sides to every story and it sounds like this one should be reported and decided by the courts. Sad to say it but either the windsurfer in question has no case or he is showing extreme tolerance. Letting this kind of incident go unpunished just adds to bad feelings down the road a...

Topic: SAMOA ** been there?

I have travelled all over the pacific surfing and kiting and would rank Samoa as one of the worst possible kite destinations. Bad launches, lots of too shallow inside reef, heavy currents. Really bad for a novice or intermediate. Tahiti or Fiji would be much better choices. As a travel trip though i...

I used to fly single point inflation kites and thought I would never fly anything else. Then I got a light, fast, three strut kite and it became a non-issue. I realized that the one pump was just another symptom of over engineering. I'm not sure what the inversion thing is about. I agree that kites ...

I wouldn't say you were missing the boat. Every board is the total sum of its parts and it all has to work together. Yes 2 1/2" is a lot in a 6'0" but not unusual for pro level contest thrusters and it can work really well for surfing with kites. Remember that you don't have to paddle the thing and ...

A good start for a 6'0 dimensions would be 6'0" x10 3/4" x 18 1/8" x 13 3/4 x 2 1/8" Don't bother with a four fin. Few can shape them well. Stick with a basic thruster. Aim for about 2" tail rocker for small waves and easy upwind ability and if you want to ride in straps all the time. Head towards 2...

28 pages? Jesus! Don't you wannabe math nerds have a calculus forum site for this shit? Here's my easy solution. 1. get off your fat ass 2. Fold kite, insert in bag and put it on your back 3. hop on jet ski 4. squeeze throttle. note: the sound you hear is not the apparent wind but the sweet sound of...

sq225917 wrote about high wind and chop regarding the three strut. Actually the 9 works really well from about 10knots up to 35 knots. The windiest day we have had since I got it averaged about 28 with gusts in high thirties and the kite was butter smooth, fast and very stable although the water was...

As usual on kite forum, this thread beats some silly details to death (minor strut presure issues) while just touching on a real issue. One pumps are a symptom of a widespread disease that has infected kite designers and the kite buying public: the disease is complexity. Yes a one pump is very nice ...
