Simon (sq225917) is very right - choose the color you like ! The kites are all good, only slight differences in how they handle. But performance is the same. If you wan't an "easier to fly" kite - ask your dealer which types to choose from. Only if you are very experienced - you would aim for some v...

Very nice, and it will be interesting to hear how it works when more have used it ! As I understand it - when the bar is pulled towards you, the backlines (the inner lines on the first pic) will move more than the frontlines (pulley 1:2 except for the angle "loss"), so you get the standard 4 line tu...

The 2002's did - but in 2003 there is a fixed loop on the Wipika bars (like many others do now) ! This is good, because there is always a release on these fixed loops. If one goes to a general surfshop, you would often end up with a fixed loop without release, as they are sold for windsurfing and mu...

It works the same way on front line flyers ! Pushing the bar away, lets the air out of the kite. So to start on the beach, you do this, to start depowered. It is only when you fly the kite through the powerzone, or away from the window edge - that front line flyers can accelerate momentarily, and gi...

Both kites are fantastic - but different. You have noticed one thing yourself - the frontline flying of the X2. I think we have told you about the other differences here above - so you have to choose what you want. No matter what you choose, you won't go wrong ! You don't mention anything about size...

Re: Important update

We were just doing some updates. We want to be sure that people use this system with a releasable chicken loop! All current triggered shackles are not built to release under high loads. In our design we use the leash to release the shackle, but only in controlled situations..in emergencies YOU MUST...

What temperatures air/water are you talking about ?

Maybe you should just use your 4/3 suit now, and then you don't have no problems (no money problems either) ?

Eeeh BA, why ? You can't see the country in a poll - and then I can't see the point of it ? But here in Denmark it is spring, summer, and autumn simply because of the air and water temperature. Especially the autumn is perfect, with extremely warm water, and high winds too, if this is what you like....
