Don't get me started on the freeride abortions north have come up with this year!!!

I'm actually keen to try the Ozone enduro V2 to be perfectly honest and the core XR-5.

oh sorry..buzz kites that's right, where were we,

We've gone from 6m to 11m in the jump. Getting there slowly I suppose.

What do people think of Buzz/Griffin AX kites?
I think this is in the correct post??
I have 8, 9, 10 & 11m AX and suit my needs. I also have 4.8, 6.2 & 10.4 D Cloud strutless kites for foiling making a perfect quiver.

WOW, the wind range of those kites must be crap if you need a 8, 9, 10 and 11m to suit your needs ?? That would be a MASSIVE overlap in size/wind range in any other brand.
Have they fixed this issue when they rebranded them this time?

I know you are just stirring but since you are...it's only fair to respond...
If course it's a luxury to be able to pick the perfect kite for the conditions which most kiters can't afford. So in response to your comment I can assure you that there is a good wind range on these kites. I am 100kgs and can happily start on a 12 in 15 knots and swap straight down to a 7 when the wind picks up over 25 knots.

Yeah sounds a bit much to have 8 9 10 11 what happened to your 12 lol

I'm too indecisive to have that many kites. I already resent having 3 kites. I miss being a learner and having one kite for all conditions.

BTW Buzz.. everyone on this forum agrees that Advance are uglier than your kites.

^^^^^^^^^^ Yep, agreed.
Don't know why but this looks pretty cool , well, in an ugly Mambo shirt sort of way. At least they are not following the boring sheep.
Would be a pain to make look good if you had to do a major canopy repair though.

Just to put it out there and keep the post alive.

Tested the harmony 9m and the boost I was getting was great. I am a beginner to jumping, well jumping is easy but landing is the issue. Lol.

Good thread.

At first I thought this thread was a nice change from the endless threads pimping switch kites, now not so sure... Maybe we need another thread on whether to use board leashes or sliding harness hooks... Man remember all the threads bagging Best and how they were going to destroy the kiting market...

Perhaps you should at least ride the kites before you offer an opinion about them?

Instead of keeping this endless dribble going and losing even more cred Mr Buzz, why don't you pay for some Seabreeze site advertising like the brands you are so keen to compare yourself to? Eg the North, Naish and Ozone adds I see on this very thread...

IMHO your are doing more damage to your brand by lowering yourself to the level of some of the posts. School yard type responses to every comment does not demonstrate a professional company or instil confidence in a product... 'does so, does not, your are, am not'....

Thanks for your advice. I am new to this whole forum thing and to dealing with adults, who as you say, are acting like school children. I will give it serious consideration.

Probably cause the good brand's don't waste money advertising on sea breeze.. And get their sellers to pimp and slag every other brand's to make a living!

Member since 2011, seems you have been around forums for some time. How do we know when you are telling the truth or just playing forum games?

I'm new to contributing to forums. I joined up here as a newbie kiter for some tips on how to kite. There was a fair bit around that was useful and it's great to have a place where we can all share experiences and knowledge. I was very grateful for that. It's certainly a whole new world when you have a kite business. For whatever reason a few people seem to take offence at this. I am not a game player and frankly it's a challenge to know how to respond to the diversity of people on here. However, that's one thing I really enjoy about kiting..the big range of people involved. Most of the tossers get bought into line on the beach. Here it's certainly a bit more wild west! Thanks for asking!
