Re: Felt like I Nearly Drowned

So glad you are okay. New gear and new spot might just be a recipe for disaster. Big surf changes the game radically. Swimming to the kite is the last thing you should do in surf, getting tangled in lines is a major risk, and it will chop limbs off. If you are way way off shore, then consider if rel...

All this said the voting doesn't necessarily impact the decision of whom is accepted.

Re: Vote for Dimitri KOTA video

Dimitri probably will not get in. His video does not follow KOTA judging rules, very few landings on megaloops are presented. Video is too long. I believe he still has the time to re-submit a 120 seconds video.....here's how to shave 45 seconds of it ( And change the title to.... 49 years old Dimit...

Re: 2018 Naish Slash

The Pivot will probably have a better/higher resale value, and that's probably why it's the more expensive of the two kites you are looking at. as there are more people interested in a Freeride, Boosting, Wave kite. than a kite marketed as Wave orientated. I weigh 76K and my largest kite is a 12 Pi...

Re: Alternative KOTA rules

I’m not looking for amateurs to compete, I want to see guys like Kevin, Nick, Dimitri, Toby and similar to show their best riding because it’s so appealing and awesome. Way more awesome than same old megalooping or ultra-technical wakeboarding with a kite. I want it to be rider-fest not blown out o...

Re: 9m Naish Pivot

Do you guys find the quadtex ripstop improves flying characteristics and durability enough to warrant the extra price.(would be $850 for the 2018 but $530 usd for 2016 9m pivot) This is a good question. I'd the piece difference 850? ...or 320? Are you comparing a new kite with a used? I'd almost sa...

Re: 2018 Naish Slash

Read through this thread - still could use clarification: Pivot or Slash? 10m size as large kite for 150 lb rider, mostly on SB, but sometimes on TT jumping. Which kite turns faster? Which kite depowers better on wave? Difference in boost & float between the two? Difference in low end between the t...

Re: Vote for Dimitri KOTA video

his video clip is 165 seconds so i'd say that could be an issue? also agreed with the other comment about few landings filmed. Each filmed trick shown in the video clip must include the rider’s start, the execution and the landing (no landing=no score). It is much better if a clean landing is shown...

Re: kai lenny at kite beach insta clip

no idea how to show it here, but he does a lou wainman inspired edit check it out, its epic, never mind his best wave in history at jaws yesterday... There is a "U" with an upward pointing arrow where you can choose how to share, then click copy link. It is impossible to know which video you are re...

Re: Vote for Dimitri KOTA video

Last time he tried to enter the KOTA contest he was treated unfair..His video was in the top votes and they left him out! It would be interesting to see him there (he is not a top tier rider at all), but let's not kid ourselves, he wasn't treated unfairly. His video didn't fulfill the minimum requi...
