  1. Night Buggy

    Yep. Do it. Full moon kiting is surreal. I've done it with and without lights and in sand dunes also. You dont need lights on the kite. You can see it well enough on a full moon.
  2. What is this?

    Too true!
  3. What is this?

    What local kite shop? The nearest one to me is 300km away.
  4. What's everyone's go to kite in patchy light wind.

    Have you ever ridden a buggy? I'm pretty sure you dont have one.

  6. Moose Pictures

    Do it! book it in now. I've done 11 in a row and there hasnt been a dud yet.
  7. Moose Pictures

    Hey lads. Here's some moose pictures to drool. Another fantastic Moose. Dunes were just perfect! smooth, rolling no harsh sections. Wind was lighter I used my 12m chrono for most of it.
  8. HELP! Ozone Chrono bridle

    Make sure you have equal line lengths. +31cm on the front lines wont work on the chrono. I should make my own bars. But havent yet. Maybe i will too soon as the price for a bar is damn stupid. I would also suggest you do a mixer and a bridle length check. For EXTENSIVE instructions and discussion read this thread on kiteforum. http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2390593&hilit=chrono+speed+system
  9. HELP! Ozone Chrono bridle

    I too wouldnt use the bar listed. It looks henious and unsafe, like a bar out 2005. You've spent the money on a decent kite. Back it with a high quality bar. Get one with a braking strop too. PS most modern depower bars have the larks head and knot system.
  10. Kite foil

    Looking good. Both on the board and the new build. My one bit of advice is put the rear stab on the top of the fuse. That way the water force is pushing the stab into the fuse rather than trying to tear it off.
  11. Nice low wind session from Kris Beech

    Just for your guys frame of reference. That location has a nice heather updraft coming off the small bank and buildings directly upwind. Its not ya standard flat beach wind. So they are getting more height and float than standard.
  12. Just like all other race kite manufacturers claiming the same bollocks. The fact is they are all pushing extremely similar designs. Super high aspect zillion cell multi-rib, 2 pulley speed system, light fabric, skinny bridle foil kites. There has been no revolutionary change for years.
  13. Born-Kite RaceStar

    World famous.
  14. Its how fast you are relatively travelling directly upwind/downwind. its what wins races. A kite that can produce a better vmg will win all other factors being equal! Until you race me in the sand dunes. Then its doesnt matter how high your kite points if you cant ride the terrain fast,,, heheheh then an old shitty beater lei will take the win! PS hahahahaha.. A revolutionary design... ahembullshitahem. looks like every other high aspect foil kite. No doubt it is a good kite. But dont try an bullshit the bullshitters that its revolutionary, Bloody marketing hype!
