Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

Aww I missed it, why the takedown? Wanted to see the Triotone Dice... :( Oh. Facebook search. Duh. I really hope they don't take the MS-Office font library typefaces to production... Agreed! What an ugly font. But I suspect that is the production model. They don’t have too much time to change it no...

Re: I'll have to change my name now North Kiteboarding is no more..

No magazine still talks about north’s rename. Secrecy B&M. S H A M E :nono: Meanwhile, the north advertising campaign continues... Remember that a company like B&M has yearly contracts with websites and magazines...this means they paid for the ad. And the ad is for the product, not the name... To b...

Acrylic spray paint question

I'm painting my board. I bought primer and some colours and a gloss sealer. So I've sprayed half my board with my primer - it's an ugly grey, but hey ho. The shop didn't have white. When I finished I noticed that the little sticker said "use a PRIMER with this paint" .... they guys in the shop have ...

Thoughts? Too late to the game? Looks more like an old rebel to my eyes, but might be a fun delta / high jumping kite.

Re: Change AoA of front wing

OK will try all of those suggestions.

The only issue with shimming the wings is that the holes through them are so tight that the shim changes the angle of the bolts so I'll need to re-drill the holes to widen them a tiny amount.

Change AoA of front wing

Hi, got a quick question. Made my own hydrofoil a couple of years ago. I put zero degrees of angle of attack on the front wing. When I ride the board I need to point it way up into the sky to get lift off. I am now mid process of making a better board, so while I'm at it I want to change the AoA of ...

Re: Woo 1.0 vs 2.0 vs 3.0

> I, too, would like to see a test where device results are compared to an independent way of measuring height/airtime. Some sort of harness to pull the devices up and simulate a jump. Configure the harness as best as you can to simulate the chop of the water, launch off waves, gusts hitting you as ...

Kiteworld issue 92 - front cover

http://www.kiteworldmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/KW92-COVER-HI.jpg Can't find a better version of this photo online, but if you look at the magazine cover Oswald Smith seems to have a really weird line set up. At first I thought it was a printing error or a strange lens on the camera, but it l...

Some questions :)

I never unhook. Currently I ride 12m Vegas, 10m Epic Screamer, 8m Torch, 7m Bandit. I'm looking to boost bigger. I ride in the UK, gusty winds, big waves, lots of chop, big tides. I'm looking for a new 9m kite, I'm thinking Bandit (because I like my 7m) or Dice (because it is similar to my 12m). Whi...
