Re: Helium 3

I mainly wave ride and have recently started foiling, my current quiver is 5 & 7mtr E5, 9mtr E4 and my recently purchased 12mtr H3 (I also still have a full quiver of Methods) I have just returned home from a holiday up around Exmouth (NW Australia) where my first fly of the H3 was in marginal winds...

Re: Switch Element V6

I'm not sure who this Element V6 is aimed at, beginners? since they are testing them out at schools. I hope it has some wave appeal or they bring out a dedicated wave kite. I prefer my kites without pulleys. Please don't add pulleys to the Nitro. Not much ElementV5 stock left :shock: I was about to...

Re: Any Single Strut kite news?

I can't wait to see some one strut Switch kites to go with my new foil.
Put me down for a 5 and 12 (or equivalent) that should be all I need to give me a huge range on a hydrofoil especially with some different length lines.
:D

Re: Any Single Strut kite news?

I am just getting into foiling ATM so will be interested in seeing what you come up with.
I am currently using the Element when on the foil but a nice lightweight single strut kite would certainly be welcome.

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE FROM SWITCH IN THE FUTURE

You will be interested to know that we are considering, due to the divergent types of wave riders, offering both a pivotal turning kite (like the Element) and another more powerful turning kite (like the Method.) The reason is since there are so many different types of conditions and riders with di...

Re: Has anyone used sliders with a Method 2?

I converted my original Methods to sliders and they worked ok but at times they did feel a little 'notchy'. After getting a 7 V2 with pulleys and feeling the smoother action I went back to pulleys on my 9 that I still haven't replaced with a V2 (how durable are these kites that 9 has been used absol...

Is it the new bar used by felix at the end in the promo movie for the element V2??
Sry if my english is not correct
I should probably let Felix answer that but I think you will find that is a custom 'fixed' bar that Felix uses and not the new standard bar.

Re: Light Wind Wave Riding

I can't really give you any advice ATM SeismicKite, as I am much heavier, 90kg ATM, and I haven't tried the V2 Elements I will say that I have been using the V1 Methods for a couple of years and I find they have a great low end for there respective sizes so I assume the V2 will have as well. Normall...

Re: 13m Mrthod any news when I can buy

Hey Johnno, good to see you have discovered the Methods, as you probably know I have been using the V1 Methods for a couple of years. I took the 9 and 12 with me to Indo last year and spent most of the time on the 12. I am thinking of buying a 13m V2 for this years trip and just wondering if you end...
