Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

I have used only one kite that had 1 pulley, Switch method,(and this pulley was just more in guiding a line, it had no pressure on it) for all the rest, I only flew kites with short bridles and no pulleys, this has to do with craftmanship from the designer, balancing a kite with short bridle and no ...

Re: Are Switch kites getting any better?

if it is rally shape, well go back in time with Switch , their first dedicated wave kite ( methodV1/2) was a rally shape even before the SS rally was there...so who is/was copying who? maybe they have picked it back up( the shape) hopefully with less barpressure.( pulling and steering pressure) I ha...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2017

Well, it's that time of year again. Time for a wrap-up and analysis of the failures of ram air kites in 2017. Despite a multitude of ridiculous over-the-top CLAIMS from ram lovers, ram airs cRaSHeD. It's interesting to note that NO ram airs..... no NOT ONE (!)…. feature anywhere near the top of the...

Re: Ozone Reo v4 vs Canrinha Drifter 2017

I had Reo V3....REO V4 is really much better, very smooth, eats gusts ...won't go back to V3, ranges are bigger etc. Real improvement not just colours, will test V5 when it comes just to be sure if it changes for the better, I think that will be difficult, but one never knows, if not I keep my V4 fo...

Re: Chinese KB Hydrofoil : 300 USD + shipment

Just to clarify what I and a few others have done is bought a Chinese aluminium foil which appears to be the same as the Takuma V100 - Not the carbon foils shown on the front page. So it's not full carbon, and it rides the same as the Takuma. It's a SUP foil and discussed in this thread. http://www...

Re: Ozone Enduro for waves ?

I myself have a range of REO's V4 12/9/7/5 ( directionals 5'5 & 5'8 801 kg) this kite is so easy to fly, you really just can concentrate on the wave and board the kite feels so natural on your bar. Secondly, the light weight is a great advantage, I used to fly Switch Element V4, great kites too, but...
