My Latest Video - Including footage on the New North Dice

Postby dannybarnette » Wed Oct 16, 2013 4:20 am

Hey guys,
Thought I'd share my latest edit, "Twin Tipping in Hatty", with you guys including some footage on the North's newest kite, the DICE!! Enjoy!



Btw I've found that this kite is amazing in whatever the conditions and whatever your riding discipline! If there was one all-around, do-it-all kite, I think I've found it! Great response, awesome drift, quick and lively in the waves! Explosive boosts (especially great maneuverability while mid-jump/kite above your head), kite loops great and always seems to climb back overhead to catch you, solid unhooked performance, what else is there to ask for?! The North DICE does it all!

If you enjoyed the video and want to keep up with pictures and upcoming videos, please follow the link below and "LIKE" my Facebook page!

Let me know if you have any questions regarding my thoughts on the Dice!

Cheers,
Danny

AWESOME video!

Can someone break down the move at 2:14 for me? I've been trying it for a while but I just faceplant. I've seen different variants and I'm not sure how to set up for each. Need Tips!

Looks like you were riding a 10 fairly lit, what were the conditions/wind?

Nice job Danny! Seems like yesterday I was flying that exact kite! Well there seems to be no doubt of your and the Dice's freestyle ability. Let me know when the Dice arrives!

Thanks man! Yeah so the video that Kiteus Polaris posted is a great instructional clip! I would agree with most everything in the video aside from one thing. In my experience, don't pop off the water when you feel the kites lift, instead, simply fall forward to drag the top of the board on the water. If you still have questions regarding the darkslide after watching the video, I'll try to answer them for ya!

Thanks man, and most of the footage on the Dice was in about 16 - 22 mph. I weigh 150. I like to ride really powered so i would have liked stronger winds more like 20-30mph for the 10m. Most of the footage that you see in the movie is on the Dice 10m in those wind conditions, aside from a few random clips and the island jump when I was on my 9m Rebel in 25-35mph gusting to 40 haha.
