Re: Need Help with using P-tex

Since that snowboard base looks like a cheaper extruded and not sintered like the ski pic posted I dont think I'd even put that much money into it for a stone grind, just fill the holes with ptex ribbon (base weld) and use a super sharp scraper or planer to get it flat after.

Re: Need Help with using P-tex

The ptex candles are easier to use but the repairs will rip out pretty quickly after a few sessions due to the wax that allows them to burn. It's better to get ptex repair ribbon (doesnt contain wax) and a ptex gun or iron, or even cheaper a soldering iron which you then use to melt the ptex in, you...

Re: Kite-o-rado Snowkite Conditions

Think snow!!!! I'm ready just purchased my newest kite. Feeling poor again.:) 17m Contra who needs big wind? Nice! Big kites are so much fun, last year my 20m ultralight foil was my most used kite (kiting pretty much every day all winter) and this year I expect the new 21m ultralight to be my most ...

Re: Casualty in Sicily

So, it is ok to play Russian Roulette with a gun in your mouth or stumble around on a high speed roadway drunk because if it isn't your time, no harm? What about using common sense keeping the gun out of your mouth in the first place, off the highway and staying out of squalls, particularly ones th...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Thanks nixmatters! No leech line, just a strip of 30mm Dacron - used on both my builds so far seems to work well. Are you on a build project? Kitejumping - as well as the joy and satisfaction of a build there is the option of building in to your own preferences - I love strutless kites and BRM Clou...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Anyone here still use foilmaker or surf plan? I think the only reason I would sew another kite vs just buying one would be to make one out of super high end materials like dyneema composite fabric.

Re: Downwinder in Pompano Beach, FL. Where to launch?

So one unlucky kid, who who knows what he was into, got some itching worm and we should stop kiting in that gorgeous spot? Seems kind of alarmist to me. Better for us. We'll get less tourists. Hopefully they'll go to Colorado. :jump: As far as I know that's one of the few spots left not controlled ...
