Re: Bandit 3 11m Vs. Waiman Boss 12m (2010)

The kite is designed to totally depower if you ride suicide, to ensure it's got plenty of power and doesn't risk falling out of the sky, attach your back lines on the pigtail knot closest to the kite, I also lowered the top stopper on depower line down about 4/5 inches. Still gives plenty of depower...

Re: Bandit 3 11m Vs. Waiman Boss 12m (2010)

Am amazed you dont like the Boss 12m, after 10 yrs kiting and 13 different kites, I have found them and it to be my most favourite. Are you sure you rigged it right, as it's got great low end, big high end, boosts off the chart and can be made to turn really slow or fast. On top of that it's quick t...

Re: The real old school!

Fantastic, takes me back to '99/2000 Wipika free air, then went to Naish R3 2 line, put boots on my feet in 2001 after watching Lou! Those were the days, you knew you were at the cutting edge of an extreme sport, empty beaches, all helping each other work it out, no magazines or schools to learn fro...

Re: The Eddy Lansink Extreme high jump!

i think people are missing the point. Regardless of how windy it was or wasn't the jump is massively impressive and actually if it was less than 44 knots then it's even more impressive!!

full respect for landing it and keeping composure through all that hangtime.

Re: Wainman blunt?

I ride the 135 Blunt at 84kg, it great from 15mph to so far upto gusts of 45 mph with the 12, 9 and 6.5 rabbitts. Go for the bigger board as you get all the advantages but no disadvantages as it edges well. Don't let the width worry you. I used to ride 130 brunotti and a 132 nobile but the blunt is ...

Re: Wainman Blunts!!!!!

couldn't agree more Phil and ditto the comment. If they are going to mess with it, please re stock a load more 135's and I'll have a spare off you for when mine gets worn out!
