I had more speed and power in kite mode from the bridles. Kitewi'g mode is more safe but somehow the kite profile gets changed and becomes less effective. With bamboo mast i will hav to compare. I hav alu spares now, stiffer means more power.

The good is to hav a kw with just spares and nordic poles , anyone can do

Here is another idea alf. Not quite as good as I hoped - hard to sail and not very quick. Kite is the 3 M Airush Supra I used for my kite boat.

OIC. The kite face,water boy connection! :P
Careful Mr Randy, I was almost Sally, might still be in Utah.

Postscript. Thanks to Randy for the info, and Mr Windstruck for the review. I'm waiting on the 15m NPW9 for now, spent the money on a quiver of NS4's. Tough decision.

On the one hand I could have less NPW's than Randy, or more Born kites than Steve? Easy button.

I'm pretty sure you are going to have more square meters of NPW than me.

I keep thinking of building something bigger than my 7.0 NS2. Buggy season won't start up till late fall, so I've got some time.

Yeah - lots of brands are coming out with their own version this summer. Naish, Ozone, and Slingshot are the brands most familiar to kiters. There is also one from a South African Company called SPG which is available in the US and DuTone (formerly North I think) as well. Around $800. I'm waiting for the Costco version.

Here's Duotone:

alf,

I practiced some with my 3.0 today and my Keystone Bar. Much better control than with the paraski type bar. May try it with my round kite. I need to try it with my SUP, or kite boat. Think it would work well with my skateboard or ATB.
