Re: WTB 2010 Switchblade 12M

Yes, that makes sense now. One last question, how revolutionary or effective is the IDS modification, has this been a big winner for cabrinha..? Is the IDS purely a depowering and relaunch capability, has this translated into a broader wind range for each sized kite..? thanks, again. have the flying...

Re: WTB 2010 Switchblade 12M

Thanks Bob, so if you have a SB3 2009 is it an IDS style, or were there 2009 SB3 that came out with the earlier bridal, so two people might have the 2009 and one is IDS and the other is without....?

Re: WTB 2010 Switchblade 12M

Are the 2010 cabrinha's utilizing the IDS bridal/bar...? Is this the big difference from SB3 2009, or is there a blend in there somewhere. Are there modifications that can be made to 09 SB3, or does this become problematic...? Just curious..thanks

Re: Girl Kiters

There is no such thing in the midwest; there were never girl poleboarders, these things must be seen only in magazines where photographers scour the world to find the few that have gotten their toes wet.

Re: obx video

It looks like you have navigated the learning curve quite nicely, you even managed to avoid the stray poleboarder, well done, grasshopper. It looked to be a little brisk that april day, but just enough air to fill your pipe.

Re: Whats up with Eclipse...?

Thanks Bob, it just seems a little eerie that there is absolutely no scuttle butt around on the blog sites. There was a little energy surrounding there announcement of the new "C" kite (Surge), and a few tweaks to the thruster, but that was almost 6mos ago. Now, all is quiet, they must be on there l...

Re: Whats up with Eclipse...?

Chris must have some deep pockets or other investors because he brought on bill hansen to help with the design of thruster updates and the fuel-like, surge. But, Hansen has left as fast as he entered and it does not appear there are any distributors, so this reintroduction is a big zero. There suppo...

I guess wind cannot be overrated. The 80 degree water and air year round is just piling on.

They have a total of 7 legitimate runs, although they advertise 77. It is a perfect 'rip-off' but if you can get someones complimentary or gift tickets for a song it is worth a look. The detachable quads make it a place you can ski your legs off in half a day, and the 7 runs are good for the day, bu...

You just have to emphasize to your gal that the kitebabe is an endangered species and your just doing your part to see that each one is documented and reported, so keep up the good work and let freedom ring.
