That's utter bullshit. I kited with Chasta in Tahiti this summer with his new Rapace kites ripping in the waves as always.

Chasta is the consummate pro and gentleman. I have snow kited with him before in 2005 when he was doing road gaps in Jackson Wyoming.

The kites look great with excellent build quality.

You know what they say about opinions.

just going on what i saw on his uploaded vids on the repace web site. Certainly not as good as the ozone vids. Maybe its because the vids are far less quality than the professionally edited ozone ones?

ya I had been to the website just never heard any reviews good or bad which is surprising considering the volume of epic reviews a few months ago.

Also I am guessing there is not the funding for film like there once was. I still have yet to see anyone ride as classy as chasta he was so real. his videos have tricks that are deceptive in that the tricks looked easy but he is on a whole different level then most.

I will have to make do with the dvd that is shipping soon (water dosent speak to me like snow) to get me though. it just seems like the awesome videos have slowed. it has even been a year since push kiteboarding posted a video. hangtime in wonderland was one amazing land video. anyone got a suggestion?
