Re: Wainman: 12+7 or 12+9?

If you can carry the Boss to 30mph you should be able to carry the Smoke to 40mph, after which stuff gets silly anyway. You could also then use the Smoke for less wind in waves. Think the gap from 12 to 7 would be too big for a 220lb guy.

Re: RPM or Rabbits...?

Have had my smoke up in plus 30mph regularly, huge boosts, very usable but that said the Gypsy is more practical if its regularly over/gusting plus 30mph. Also using them both in a lot less wind on my SS Celaritas.

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...
