Re: Enter the world of Duotone

checkout 1:31 in the video Saw that but with a human at the controls the steering and sheeting inputs won't be as repeatable as having a machine at the controls. it doesn't matter, it appears they are measuring the line movement of the rear lines and can view the video of the kite, presumably that ...

Re: Enter the world of Duotone

This video made my day, 1 min:28 sec into this video, they show an instrumented kite flying / test rig being towed behind a small van. Want to know more about this test rig, particularly if it only can do quasi-static testing ( i.e. kite parked at the edge of the wind window, AoA varied ) or whethe...

Re: 2019 Duotone Click Bar

20181021_121232-01.jpeg Note the difference in color nearly new versus one year old lines. I do kite in California but I don't leave my lines on the beach. To me silversurfers line look fuzzy.

Re: Kiting Santa Ana Winds

It is an extremely fickle wind. It can start and quit in a moment. Often switching around 180 degrees but not always. The early season Santa Ana can be especially flukey at the beach. It is almost always extremely gusty. It is heavily influenced by the mountains and canyons so if a small change in d...
