Re: Cabrinha Trimlite OD bar 2017 and Naish Pivot 2017 Kite

Definitely get the correct Naish bar. I flew my friends 2018 Naish Pivot (11m) on a flexifoil bar and it felt bad. The kite was over powered in 25mph (82kg) and slow turning with little feedback. We both agreed kite flew wrong, he bought a new Naish bar and a totally different kite. I can now hold t...

Re: Ozone Strut Valves breaking after 1 year in tropical climate

Clear defect in my opinion. The goods need to meet the intended use under the sale of goods act, and this clearly fails. Contact Ozone and give them a chance to rectify this.

Re: About a 5 lines Kite setup.

Go for it. You could buy an older North 5th line bar, or use your current 4 line bar. If you're using the 4 line bar do the following for a basic set up; - Buy a new single line around 27m long (assume you current lines are around 24m). Normal 1.8mm dyneema is fine and anything up to around 2mm will...

Re: 2019 Duotone Click Bar

Hi Colin (Kiting Colin - Flexifoil Forum ?), - Ditch the North lines and buy these: ( I have a few sets and they are top quality Sk99 lines, 500kg) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SK99-dyneema-Pro-kite-line-500kg-and-450kg-strenght-Kite-surfing-lines/192645232671?hash=item2cda8cf81f:m:mZuDunSq84vwWoevtGg...

Re: Naish Torch 2018 vs 2019

The old Torch's are indeed Gold!.. I'm still riding 2013 and 2014 Torch's and they are the perfect kite. If I upgrade in the future I will be sure to miss 2017, seems a bad year for the Torch from reviews.

Re: My tube is wet

salt inside is no issue for kites. I have had this a few times and it doesn't affect the bladder. There will be millions of salt crystals between the outside of the bladder and dacron already. Try and drain the kite and pump up a few times. The pressure of air rushing out when deflating the main bla...

Re: question for line experts - chickenloop line strength

Yes that's over specced. The chickenloop line is covered by PU coated plastic, so has little to no wear. Your front lines are likely to be 350kg eash, so offer up 700ish kg... so 1150kg is loads.. Use a Dyneema SK99. "Southern Ropes" do an excellent rope for this - "Super-12" http://www.southernrope...

flysurfer speed V Sonic

Hello, I am considering getting either a Flysurfer Speed 3 or 4 15m, or a Sonic 15m (82kg Shinn Monk 134cm, UK winds). How much higher and longer does the Sonic 15m take you compared to the 15m speed ? Initially I was looking at the speed for 10 to 20mph, but now thinking the sonic. Want a good loft...
