That is an awesome video. I'm thinking about buying a shorter bar and lines, what length do you reckon his lines are for those big loops?

Ta! I'm on 24's at the moment. How much difference do you think 22's would make (in terms of getting up over the kite at the bottom of the loop)? I'm not sure I'd like anything as short as 18m tbh.

The Screamers come standard with 22m (as does the Renegade), I don't think you'd notice too much difference from the 24's....maybe 20m would be a good length to try.

We had a bar with a 18m set up which I loved for wave riding and was waiting for a 7m Screamer day but think someone has probably had our lines by mistake as we no longer have them!
Might order another set Cool

Nico only uses the standard Epic lines ie 22m
In other words he just damn good!

On another note can't believe your still on 24's, I thought those days were long gone
It's been many many years since I have owned a kite with lines that long, I guess it's to compensate for the lack of C kite grunt
