Meet Jason Slezak from Real kite boarding see his amazing jump
Wednesday September 6th 10pm est on stunt junkies.
Got to test drive the 07 Cabrinha the Crossbow 2 ,12m COST $1799.00
the Switchblade 2, 14M cost $ 1699.00 , and the Contra 14m cost
$1745.00 AND THIS FROM THE low price leader Neil Pryde Maui , so thy
are a little spendy . What I liked and what I didn't like . I liked
the Crossbow its very stable, when you park it you never need you
look up, its rite where you left it .turns fast and boosts high .
but they only make it in a 12m , if your a real lite weight thats OK
if not you will need the Contra which is an amazing kite it pulls
like a truck . and the 14m goes up wind like nothing I've ever
seen . the 17m is a different story very little up wind capability.
On the 14 we were out in 6 to 11 miles per hr , going up wind and on
a plan .What I didn't like , when a little gust hit ,it saw a hand
The switchblade 2 comes in 16m 14m 12m 10m 8m 6m 4m and is design
for unhooked tricks so its slow to turn (on pulley bar) it felt like
a slow copy of the Crossbow.
I'll stay with my Airush Halow 14m it does everything turns fast,low
end top end,boosts high,low cost.
