Looks like the Noise has been updated.
Couldn't make it any worse I guess....???
Which kite from another brand is it copied from this time?
Can I ask you guys a question?
Have you ever flown the noise kite for any length of time...especially this years model?
if not, why the negative comments?
If so, why the negative comments?
can we keep this section technical and educated or is that too much to ask?
The pump is sold as an add-on.
Pumps aren't an optional accessory, they're a necessary component.
The company just saved themselves $5 by not throwing in a pump with the deal.
mmm I'm not sure there is such a thing as the facts....
Just educated opinions that's all I ask. Has anyone actually flown the new noise and what do they think?
Peter what has the pump got anything to do with how the kite flies - although I do agree with you.
Yeah what is it with knocking this guy and the company, should be backing the guy up, hes got his arse on the line starting a new company etc etc and
he's an aussie
Most kites are copies/hybrids of other designs, so what, ride it first, review it without bias
As spoken by the gibbo for and on behalf of the gibbo, the above expressed opinions are the gibbo's and in no way affiliated to BWS or any other liquor store turned kite maker, out
I used the kite for a couple of hours and didn't like it, what's you problem with that?
I would like to demo the new kite too, but only if I am allowed to like it or not like it, depending on whether I like it or not, as long as that doesn't upset anyone.....
Waveslaves name is Peter? Huh.....
There have been pretty much 3 main models with a few bridle tweeks along the way over the last 18 months. Alot of crew may have flown the original model when they were first released but there has been significant changes to the kite in terms of new bridle about 6 months ago and construction upgrades etc and a few other minor tweaks.
version 1- had benwilsonsurf written on leading edge and tips
version 2- had bridle upgrades and now changed and has BWS written on leading edge and tips( not benwilson surf) plus bag has a few extra badges so this is a sign of v2.
Version 3- which just was released today has new graphics on wing tips( different colours for different sizes), new scuff guards, new bridles. Kite has a slightly different cut to the canopy above the bar option for depower. logos on inside of canopy aswell as outside and comes with upgrade bag as standard. they arent even landed in oz yet until a few days time so seems weird theres a few opinions about a kite that the public havent even ridden yet!
Ryland same post as on the gear review and my reply is the same.
Logo detail and placement surely means jack sh1t to what is a very mature market now. How does the damn thing fly!,
How does it compare to the north rebel??
It doesn't...ha ha ha here we go again, "there's a hole in the bucket deliza, deliza."
The video made me smile, marketing cliche from start to finish! "we are a family".... would like to give it a try though, but no one flies them here.
"The Noise kite is the #1 surf kite on the market today."
Can marketing start any worse than that?
... again, instead of technical details, we get the hype from a marketing guy/girl, who's, I suspect, never flown other kites, or perhaps no kites at all...
... I'd like to fly the kite, though...
How does it compare to the 9.45m stabber?
Some like cutting tall poppies....
I had the opportunity to kite with a Noise a couple of weeks ago. The session left me very impressed and made the situation (light winds) really enjoyable. The kite ticked every box.
My kites are Reos' and I teach on Catalysts'.
