Re: Surfboard for a beginner?

If you like your Mako then just get a Duke for your surfboard, they are quite nice and user friendly. They don't excel at surfing waves without kite power though, so if your goal is slack kite wave surfing pick a different board.

Re: Mast length pros vs cons

The biggest effect mast length has is the cant angle you can handle without the tip of your front wing breaching the water and ventilating. The reason that all the surfing masts are 60 cm is that you only need to lean hard when ripping up wind. When surfing down the wave 60 cm is enough because the ...

Re: Anyone try the Blade Unibar v3?

I used to ride the V1 and V2 before switching to Fireball and they were pretty good. I have to say that looking at the V3 they have solved almost all my complaints with V1&2.

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster, firewire evo or suggestions

I own 2x Wave Bandit Performer 4-10 and a Storm Blade 58 Funboard, looking at them I would say they are identical. *But* I've never kited the Storm Blade yet, as I bought it to have for when I break my main WB (I broke the other one twice already and repaired it with hot glue and am saving it now fo...

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

Cool. I'm wanting to branch out past the shinnster because I realize that it edges like a TT, and I want to get more of that surf board feel.. grippy carving, relying on the fins more than the edge. Local spot is a lake (small waves, lotsa chop). Do you think it the WB checks all those boxes? The W...

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster or suggestions

Glad I found this thread. I've been kiting for 4 years, just tried strapless this summer on a Shinnster copy that I built and am loving it! I'm also light weight (about 60kg), so the Performer 4'10" seems like a no brainer. Question: Do you ride it with the twin fin setup or have you somehow made i...

Re: Best Wetsuit for kitesurf? 4/3

How are the need essentials for balloon legs? Looks like some decent suits at good prices.

I've had great experience with NP Surf suits but they only last 2 seasons.

Re: Gear that has exceeded your expectations!

Catch Surf Wave Bandit Performer 4-10. At my weight (74 kg / 165 lbs) it's amazing. It's pretty much replaced all my other boards.

Re: Affordable Kite - Highest Jump - Longest Hangtime

If you really want a cheap booster then get a used Ozone Edge or Liquid Force NRG.
