Without a doubt. The bows will add a whole new dimention to your riding.
Dax... if you want to ride a bow powered just unhook. Best of both worlds.
The wave riding potential with these kites is insane! :thumb:

hi guys and dolls,
The southern lakes boardriders club jsut got 12m CB's from underground in christchurch, the gusty conditions here within the mountain lakes prevents us fom having sails on certain days, but the irst use last night of the CB proved very successfull. For us it was like riding in a sea breeze !! end of story. No other kite comes close to this for now.....Me personally, Ive been riding Best BFK 16m and the 12m CB absolutly shat all over it and especially when I can ride the same kite in 25-30knots as well. Water lunch is second to none !!!
let you know more after the next ride.

Ha, yeah I will just ride around unhooked all the time... brilliant! Popeye arms in no time!

:wink:

There are a few really good posts on this thread from people who ridden the CB's and can see the upsides and the downsides... its a shame they are hard to spot...

Okay but just remember its kiteboarding not kitesheeting ... That's why some guys still use pulley bars. It's much easier to keep your balance on the water if your not constantly moving your arms around and streching them forward to sheet in and out.

OK so which is it, genius. Some c-loops you can actually hook in and out of.
Imagine!

No companies allowed, it says so right on the thread title.

Anyway if you actually read back when I described what I meant as hooked in powered riding its crusing around inches over the water throwing a huge roost while picking your nose with your free hand.

Not having to death grip on the bar to be powered, and not having to constantly sheet is the key to all this roost throwing nose picking fun.

Somebody said that those Sonic kites have less bar pressure than the bows... might have to try one instead... but I thought we were talking about the xBow, and I thought you were working for a company (read thread title.)

I was offering an opinion on flat style kites in general, not any brand in
particular. I've been flying 'bow' kites since before most of you knew what
a control bar was and thought it would be nice to offer up some of that
kowledge. Sorry, I'll get back in my cage now.

I never mentioned the S word, you did.
